Angelic Soap

Why do we handcraft artisanal soap?

Our primary goal is to create real soap that is kind to your skin and to the environment. 

The skin is the largest organ of the body, so sensitivities, irritants and emotions can be literally “written all over your face”. The skin absorbs – and displays -everything! To that end, Angelic Soap is pure real soap, created for discriminating human beings, their companion animals and all of their heavenly bodies. 

Angelic Soap is made in the time-honored traditional methods of both cold process and hot process, to bring you a product that even sensitive skin will find beneficial. If this is your first time using our soap, be prepared for the surprising luxury that comes at no detriment to your precious skin or the environment.

What makes Angelic Soap outstanding is the uncompromised quality of the ingredients. Our soap is created from the finest, food grade vegetable oils and raw, unrefined, organic butters that are sourced from Fair Trade and ethical vendors. 

We also care about visual appeal, so Angelic Soap uses delicious colorings from nature, particularly natural clays, spices and herbs.

If you are choosing a scented soap, you can be certain that much consideration went into the aromatherapeutic fragrance formula. Angelic Soap will always choose precious essential oils first. Superior quality fragrance oils may be used for more specific or complex blends. 

Here is what you will not find in Angelic Soap: 
Sodium Laureth Sulphate, Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, Propylene Glycol and parabens. No animal products or by-products except an odd organic milk or honey batch. Each bar of Angelic Soap lathers because of the choice and proportion of oils used – NOT chemicals!

2017 Update

It is hard to believe that 2017 is nearly over! 

The year has been busy and this is a very belated post.

I know a few excellent soap makers that have closed their businesses this year. The craft is time-consuming, not very profitable and shipping costs to receive supplies and to ship orders is high.

And - I am still surprised that so many people do not know the difference between REAL soap and detergent.

Many consumers purchase soap on fragrance alone. There is a better approach to getting a beautiful product and being kind to your skin.

Allow me to briefly explain - 

DETERGENT is what is found in most commercial soap bars. This is a bar of sudsy, drying, detergent-based, industrial *soap* that has had all of the natural glycerin extracted from it, then sold as a by product. 

The oils are typically inferior and are a singular ingredient in the finished product. 

The bars are cured by industrial fans. 

All of these steps combine to add up to profits for the company and a horror for your skin.

DETERGENT is not kind to your skin. 

Detergent is the 'soap' that dermatologists and skin gurus warn you not to use.

Angelic Soap's REAL soap is created by mixing a myriad of hand-selected, vegan, organic oils to cleanse, condition and moisturize the skin. The oils are heated, mixed with lye water, poured into wooden molds, cut within 48 hours and allowed to air dry for 4-6 weeks. This is costly and time consuming for Angelic Soap - but worth it according to our devoted clients!

Angelic Soap makes REAL soap with genuine food grade oils and butters. 

We devise our own recipes. 

We hand make each small, artisanal batch. 

It pays to read the ingredients in each of our bars, as we never offer just one basic recipe 'with flavorings'.

A general tip - never use a heavily fragranced product on your facial skin - save that for an aromatherapeutic bath or shower. 

For facial cleansing, Angelic Soap offers a selection of Ayurvedic-based cleansers, conceived in conjunction with an Ayurvedic dermatologist many, many years ago. These bars are noted as "cleansers" in the shop.

I hope this very short synopsis helps clear up some misconceptions about detergent versus soap.

Angelic Soap NEVER compromises on ingredient integrity.

And, that, is true luxury!
