Methods & Production
We produce our moisture creams in small batches, this helps us maintain quality and assure you that the cream you receive is freshly made.
- Blend the mixture of exotic oils, beeswax, water and essential oils in a large blender, this ensures the mixture is uniform and even, making moisture creams is a lot like cooking or making a cake! lots of careful measuring and attention to detail!!
- Add essential oils, these oils are carefully blended to have mental and physical(for the skin) benefits
- Pour the mixture into 60ml glass jars.
- Label batch and send out!
We utilise the cold process method in our production. This means that the soap creates its own reaction, and does not need extra heat. We choose this method as it was simple, clean and does not need lots of energy to make.
- Start by melting the fats of coconut and palm, to room temperature, we then add local rapeseed oil.
- In a seperate container we prepare the lye solution. This is what hardens the oils into a soap by a process called saponification.
- When the mixtures are at the correct temperature we blend them together in a large mixer.
- After a brief mix we pour off the soap into our special stainless steel moulds.
- We then use a stick mixer to blend in all the different herbs and spices.
- Next, we take the moulds, wrap them and put in store to cool and set up, this process can take up to two weeks.
- Lastly,When the soap is ready we cut it from the mould and cut it by hand into bars..
Most commonly asked questions.
- Q Do they last as long as normal soap?
- A yes the soap on display is all fresh and thus is still quite soft once cut they continue to harden up, keep out of puddles and away from direct sunlight and they will last like a normal commercial soap.
- Q What is the difference between this an a normal soap
- A Our products will not dry the skin and thus are fine to be used on the face.
- Q Do they lather?
- A yes, and a creamy and moisturising lather, this is due to the pure coconut oil we use, this oil will allow the soap to lather in the most hard water areas, and even in salt water.
- Q Do they have a shelf life?
- A Yes as long as they are kept cool and out of direct sunlight they will last any where from 1-3 years
