- The Art of Soap - For lovers of fragrance and colour the Art of Soap is a dozen of the most indulgent fragrances all wrapped up an arty cold process soap. The cold process is a natural soap making method that combines carefully chosen ingredients + time to make a richly moisturising soap suitable for all skin types.
Regular milled soap is boiled, refined and then stripped of its natural glycerin. This process makes soap with a long shelf life but it is also very drying. Cold process soap is never boiled or refined - the whole batch is made directly into the mould so all the natural moisturisers, antioxidants and skin care oils still exist in the final bar. This means our soap has a shorter shelf life (about 2 years) but its a small price to pay for healthier skin.
- Modern Alchemy - MA is a bit more science-y than the Art of Soap. It includes a range of scrubs and body wash to make shower time and skin care oh so much fun! Whipped textures, gentle non-stripping surfactants and specialty ingredients combine to make a range that is foamy, fun and fabulous!
