Why Handcrafted Cold Process Soap?
One of the things that makes handcrafted, homemade, cold process soap Superior to commercial soap is simply the fact that we do not remove the glycerin.
Glycerin is actually a natural occurring by-product of the cold process soap making process.
Glycerin is a humectant and an emollient, it draws moisture to your skin, which is vital to having healthy skin. Country Crafted Creations, handcrafted, handmade, cold process soap contains approximately 25% glycerin, which adds to the moisturizing effects of the soap.
Large commercial soap companies grind their soap up and extract that glycerin( and then turn around and sell it to you in other forms.) Thus leaving approximately 3% glycerin in their products.
Your body absorbs what you put on your skin
Commercially made soaps are filled with detergents, chemicals and additives that are unnatural and strip your skin of it's natural oils.
Unlike commercial soaps, our soaps contain none of the detergents or chemicals that commercially mass manufactured soaps contain and therefore they do not strip your skin of it's natural oils.
Each batch is made the Old Fashioned Way. In small batches that are hand stirred, hand cut, and cured for 4 to 6 weeks before selling. This results in a soap that has a rich, luxurious lather and is gentle, non-drying, and as emollient as possible.
All Soap is made with lye, but there is no lye remaining in the finished product. Soap making is a delicate blend of art and science. The oils and lye combine molecules during the process and create a new substance - soap - Saponification is complete after the soap mixture has been poured into molds, cut into bars, and allowed to cure for several weeks. Our soaps are "super creamed" as our Grandmother called it now known as super fatted, at the end of the mixing stage. This is the addition of extra oils or butters. For example, Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter etc. This ensures extra emollients to make it a gentle, luxurious bar of soap.
Country Crafted Creations soaps are made from the finest quality food grade oils, known for their moisturizing and skin nourishing qualities, in several carefully selected combinations. In addition we may add herbs, spices, honey, nuts, grains, flowers, tea, pure essential oils and/or high quality fragrance oils (a combination of natural and synthetic fragrances specially formulated for soap making) to the soap. If color is added, it is either natural or FDA approved cosmetic grade colorant.
Once you try handcrafted, cold process soap and realize what a difference it makes, you'll be hooked too. Most people find they significantly reduce the amount of lotion used when they start using real handcrafted, cold process soap.
