Why use handmade soap? Is it better over the mass produced stuff out there? There are several benefits I believe to small batch, handmade soap making as opposed to mass-produced soap. So what are they?
You get an artisan that is very involved in every detailed step of the process, which ensures a greater level of quality control, and not to mention a very personal touch. Formulas are created, tested and graphed to make sure they are perfected. Ingredients are searched for meticulously and sourced only from reputable vendors. The creation process is unique every single time with designs being inspired by anything that touches the heart. Handmade soap is truly heartfelt.
You will find that high quality, food grade ingredients are used. What does that mean? That means that you are using non-synthetic, detergent free products on your face and body. This is probably the single most important difference between handcrafted and mass-produced soaps. Additionally, many commercial soap manufactures remove the glycerin that occurs as a by-product of the soaping process. Handcrafted soaps retain their glycerin content. Glycerin is a natural humectant, meaning it attracts and retains moisture in your skin. This is why you will notice that small batch soaps tend to leave your skin feeling softer and more moist.
To the health conscious consumer who is becoming more informed and educated about the benefits of putting only the most wholesome things in their body, handmade soap makes sense. It is soap in its purest form. What we put on our skin is just as important as what we put in to our bodies.
Finally, each bar, balm, or bath bomb is totally unique. They are like original pieces of art with their own distinctive look, smell, and feel. At Five Golden Apples, we are big on giving you an experience. We are the “Soap that Inspires”.
