Did you know that skin is the largest organ of your body, with a total area of about 20 feet?
We all need skincare products that help our skin to balance its loss and absorption of moisture, while nourishing the body with rich nutrients and vitamins. Products which meet this need, create a breathable barrier for the skin, attracting and allowing in a fresh supply of moisture. At the same time, preventing the evaporation of internal moisture.
We handcraft some amazing skincare products for your face, but what about the rest of your skin? Now we offer cold process soap with ingredients which give a clean feeling without drying your skin. Each bar is a minimum of 3.5 ounces.
Exactly what is cold process soap? Great question! A combination of fats (oils) mixed together with lye, which is dissolved in distilled water. Once the ingredients are thoroughly mixed, they are poured into a mold and allowed to sit for approximately four weeks. During this time, the mixture goes through the saponification process, which means the water evaporates causing the soap to become harder and more mellow with time mellow. Simple explanation for a complex chemical reaction!
At HCB, we use a basic soap recipe, which is vegan, then add fragrance oils, essential oils or other products such as clay.
To use: Wet bar of soap, and massage between hands to encourage a rich lather.
