We don’t rush the soap making process, and that’s why we sometimes may not have your favorite bar ready when you ask for it. We handcraft our soaps in small batches, using one of three techniques: cold process, hot process, and melt-and-pour. The first two methods of production require up to four weeks cure time, while the melt-and-pour method requires a much shorter time before the soap is ready for you to use and enjoy. Each bar of Luscious Lathers Soaps may contain one or more of the following 100% natural vegetable oils:
Olive Oil has been used since the earliest of times to gently cleanse the body of dirt and impurities. Olive Oil is a humectant, which means it is a substance that pulls moisture from the environment and onto the skin. Olive Oil lets the skin “breathe” and retain its natural moisture.
Palm Oil contributes to the stability, volume, and creaminess of the lather of Luscious Lathers Soaps. We use sustainably produced Palm Oil.
Coconut Oil contains lauric acid, an ingredient that has been found to act as an anti-bacterial agent. This versatile Oil is known for its cleansing qualities, and it contributes to the luxuriant and abundant lather found in every bar of Luscious Lathers’ soaps.
Shea Butter is rich in skin loving fatty acids. These fatty acids are easily absorbed by the skin, which helps lock in the skin’s natural moisture. Our Shea Butter products are made with raw and unrefined fair-trade Shea Butters, sourced from Nigeria and Ghana.
There’s one other ingredient present in Luscious Lathers Soaps: Glycerin. Only this time, we don’t have to add it to our soaps, because this excellent humectant is a natural by-product of the soap making process. Soaps that contain glycerin are mild and help to moisturize the skin while they cleanse. Most commercial soap makers remove natural Glycerin from their product long before the soap leaves the factory; they sell the Glycerin to cosmetics makers. To make up for the natural Glycerin they remove from their soap, commercial soap makers add harsh chemical “moisturizers” to their products. Each bar of Luscious Lathers Soaps retains its natural Glycerin to help you keep your skin soft, moist, and beautiful.
