Why Handmade Soap?

The benefits of handmade soap

There are countless, wonderful benefits to using and enjoying all natural, New Zealand handmade soap and shampoo.

Some of these benefits include:

  • No toxins, harsh chemicals, synthetics or questionable ingredients will touch your skin, which is your bodies largest organ. Therefore, it is much healthier than the commercial options and you avoid the harmful effects of those unwanted ingredients on your skin and your internal system.

  • Commercial soaps are often more akin to detergents than actual soap and can be detrimental to your skin. Studies show that commercial grade soaps can even contribute to illness.

  • Natural, plant based ingredients are biodegradable so they don’t hurt the waterways or their delicate and fragile ecosystems.

  • Glycerine is found in natural plant material so it moisturizes, hydrates and soothes skin for longer than traditional soaps. Manufactured soaps tend to omit this ingredient to extend shelf life.

  • Handmade soap is often considered vegan and no animal testing is tolerated. It is usually made in small batches with love, by small businesses using human hands and not machines.

  • Handmade soaps usually have minimal and biodegradable or sustainable packaging, so less waste is produced. Those shiny, little, colorful boxes in the store may be pretty, but they are completely unnecessary.
