Here you can find all my soaps for hands and body in one place. I think I make the perfect gentle and moisturizing soap for hands and body. They are as natural as can be and handmade. With tons of bubbles they provide moisture for skin. A good bath soap must be hard and long lasting, it must smell wonderful for as long as the bar lasts. Oh and it has to be sustainable  That’s the description of my handmade and natural soaps made with Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Sustainable and Organic Palm Oil, Castor Oil, Organic and Sustainable Palm Kernel Oil and Beeswax.

Description

Perfect Soaps for Hands and Body – Gentle and Moisturizing

Every soap maker takes their soap and soap recipe(s) very seriously, trying to achieve perfection. The perfect soaps for hands and body is gentle and moisturizing. It is also cleansing and hard so it lasts a long time. And there must be bubbles, lots and lots of bubbles while also feeling creamy and soothing. Finally, I want it to smell wonderful too!

Ingredients that are Sustainable

All my soaps, except specialty soaps, are made using a base of Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Sustainable and Organic Palm Oil, Castor Oil, Organic and Sustainable Palm Kernel Oil and Beeswax.

Olive Oil makes a luxurious soap bar and is one of the most conditioning oils available. More exotic oils might be as conditioning but aren’t as creamy and will soften a bar while costing considerably more to make.

To achieve a soap with a rich, bubbly lather, coconut oil provides plentiful bubbles but also creates a hard bar that cleans well. In fact, coconut oil is so good at cleansing that there is a real art to getting just the right ratio of ingredients to make sure it isn’t too cleansing.,

Important to Buy Soaps with Sustainable Palm Oil

I believe that using palm oil, as long as it is organic, and certified sustainable is one of the better ecofriendly choices we can make when choosing our soap ingredients. I write more about that here: Sustainable Palm Oil. The reason palm oils are so often found in soap is that they are such perfect oils for soap making, balancing all the qualities most people want in a soap without crazy high prices. But no matter the price, it would be very tough to find a better oil for soap.

I purchase my Palm products from this a company who is a listed member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).

Bubbles are Best with Castor

I use Castor Oil because it is the only oil that provides so much creamy, conditioning, bubbly goodness in such a little amount. When it comes to soap, it is truly a miracle worker.

Beeswax for Skin Conditioning and Hardening

Beeswax makes a good soap great. It hardens it and adds conditioning creaminess to a bar. I struggled to find a vegan option here, wanting to provide soap to those of us who do not use beeswax but the other solutions didn’t work or were too chemical for my tastes. I try to source my beeswax from small, local beekeepers whenever possible. Beekeeping is a necessary industry to growing vegetables and beekeepers must be able to support their efforts through the sale of their harvest. Most beekeepers I have met love their bees and tend to them carefully and humanely. I would like to support these type of beekeepers.

Finally, depending on the soap, I add other things including herbs, clays, sea salt, sugar, silk and honey.

I always add precious oils to my specialty soaps after the saponification process so the best oils are still available to benefit your skin in their original form.

I prefer naturally derived smells and at least half of my soaps use only natural essential oils.

    I got the rosemary and one in the lavender scent. I kinda wish the rosemary scent was a little stronger but that could be because I prefer the smells to pack a punch! Overall, great quality and they provide good suds.

Organic and Sustainable Palm Oil

Ziryab’s only uses organic and sustainable palm oil and palm kernel oil. I believe in supporting the existing sustainable and organic palm industry rather than moving the problem if exotic vegetable oils to another, less well known area of the world.  Please see my blog about the sustainable palm oil
