Good hand soap makes a difference

Dry hands? 

 Using hand soap is best. Would you be having a good day if your hands had soft skin instead of chapped skin? In a world inundated with alcohol based hand sanitizers (and hydrogen peroxide hand sanitizers), problems have been introduced into your life unnecessarily.

Waterless Hand Soap

Here's how Waterless Hand Soap works:

Spray a generous amount of the soap onto your hands. Then rub your hands together for 20 seconds to produce a lather. The lather collects excess oil and dirt, punctures and kills any virus and bacteria. It does so by by breaking down the outer virus and bacteria membrane, which exposes it to the alkaline environment, causing the disease to die. Ingredients: Saponified organic coconut oil.

Think about it: how many times have you touched your face today?Research shows that we touch our faces 23 times an hour. Every time we do, germs can get into our skin, our eyes, noses, or mouths. With our Waterless Hand Soap though, it's easy to clean your hands on the go. It's completely organic, alcohol free and safe to use on skin and surfaces without leaving streaks behind. Swap out your hand sanitizer and feel the difference.

By changing to a non-toxic hand soap, your hands and hand washing experience will be more comfortable and you will be ready to deal with life's daily challenges. Clean hands, in waterless situations, is possible. Help your hands-and your mood- by changing what you wash them with. It's easier than it sounds. Comfort is your goal. Simply add good soap to your life. It's easy.

Bar Soap

I started using natural soap when I was 10 years old. I was finished with detergents turning my nice skin into sandpaper. Even though the natural soap I used back then was caustic, it was much better than the lesser quality soap I had been using. As a grown-up, I discovered a fabulous organic coconut oil soap, which I loved. Not that long after I fell in love with that soap, the company went out of business. As someone who makes things, that's when I decided if I was ever going to get the best soap, I had to make it. 

Liquid Soap Concentrate

I use liquid soap to wash my dishes, just like everyone else. I am acutely aware of plastic bottles, and how they impact our world. Plastic is an amazing invention that changed how food is stored, how long it lasts, and what other things we can buy, like liquid soap, that is transported in plastic. What if you could get good, natural soap and reuse a plastic bottle you already have?

Olive Oil Shampoo

In the years leading up to my 1st batch of soap making, I got into the hemp soap revolution. This was somewhere around 1997-1998. I wrote personal care product reviews for The Hemp Times, an offshoot of High Times. I received lots of samples; soaps, shampoos, lip balms, shoes, fabrics. It was fun, but also trying. I got 2 shoes to review. They were not a pair and were different sizes, neither of which fit me. All I could do was look at them. Not so useful if you're supposed to write a favorable review. 

What does all of this have to do with an olive oil shampoo bar?

soap and money

How much soap money does a shower cost you?

Let's say you spend $3.00 on a bar of soap and it lasts for 7 days of showers. That's $.43 per shower. 

For your next bar of soap, you spend $8.50. That seems like a lot of money, except it lasts for 8 weeks or 56 showers. That's $.15 cents per shower. F.Y.I.: One bar lasts me and Andy 6 weeks of daily showers - 84 showers.

Good soap is cost effective. More
