Have you ever used lard soap? Lard soaps yield a gentle cleansing action, soft and creamy lather and a bar that is hard and long-lasting. All soaps are hand poured, trimmed, beveled, polished and steam shined during the curing process. All bars have natural variation in finish and color due to the nature of being handcrafted. My soaps are a traditional "fits in the palm of your hand" size, not cut from a loaf in a slab shape. The bars have beveled edges, so they are comfortable to hold and lather. Old fashioned lard soap is made through a cold process, using lye, which creates a chemical reaction between the fat, yielding... soap. Contrary to popular belief, lye soap isn't harsh. Soap that is properly cured will not be drying or irritating to the skin. Lard is a fat most similar to the sebum produced by our own skin, making it gentle and suitable for sensitive or dry skin.
I create simple, yet elegantly fragranced bars inspired by different Saints. For the last four years, I've built an interesting catalog! Some are well-known and beloved. Others are more obscure! I've focused mainly on female Saints, but hope to add some specifically masculine varieties this year.
