Fresh, Natural, Healthy
What do you get when you combine a chef and a naturalist?
No, it's not a trick question.
The result is beautifully handcrafted soap from Natural Handcrafted
Soap, a Raleigh, N.C.-based company.
"Making soap is a lot like cooking," Nick, co-owner of Natural
Handcrafted Soap, explains. "It requires blending ingredients and
getting just the right balance."
Nick's partner, who hails from Brazil, was handed down recipes from her
grandmother that included natural ingredients from the rain forest for
soaps that really make a difference on one's skin.
Our handmade/ handcrafted soaps are formulated to deliver the very best
in skin care while using only safe, truly natural ingredients. We never use
harmful synthetic chemicals, preservatives,
artificial dyes, or synthetic fragrance
All of our soaps are made in small batches to ensure the quality of each batch. We hand stir, hand cut and hand wrap every bar.
We even make our own wrapper. Every bar is given a long cure period so that when it reaches you it is mild and ready to use..
Our soap is scented naturally with only luxurious essential oils or
absolutes extracted from natural plant sources for skin healing
benefits; we also add herbs, butters, spices and natural botanical s for
exfoliating texture and natural coloring. Each bar of natural soap is
hand-cut and hand packed.
Our handcrafted soap is made in small batches using a cold process.. We
select the highest quality pure oils from around the world, such as olive

castor oil, lanolin oil, essential oils, natural herbs, safe fragrance
oils add to the soap's scent. Natural herb powders, herbs and clays add color to our soap; and
botanical s, and other natural ingredients add texture and exfoliates.

pound for pound, glycerin costs more than soap, which is why most soap
companies remove the glycerin from the soap and sell it to manufacturers
of lotion. We do not remove the glycerin from our handcrafted soap, so
when you purchase soap made by us, it contains all of the naturally
occurring glycerin. With our handcrafted soap you get a fabulous
cleanser and a moisturizer all in one, which was created for top

Why you may ask, should I buy handmade soap when I can get more soap for less money at the grocery store?
Generally, the commercial soaps carried at most chain stores, etc. are
full of chemical additives, additives that not only dry out your skin
but can lead to rashes and other irritations. This is not only because of
the synthetic additives in the soap but also because most soap
companies take the glycerin out of their soap. The commercial soap bars
that line most grocery stores’ shelves are actually synthetic
detergents. While that's great for your dishes, it's not very good for
