~WHAT'S GREAT ABOUT OUR SOAPS~
Our soap is REAL! and Raw! Our soaps are made from real and natural ingredients that you can recognize; pure, fresh, raw, goat's milk from our Alpine dairy goats being the largest single ingredient. This is blended with olive, coconut, palm, lard, and castor oil for added hydration. We use pure essential oils and natural botanicals for scent and color, with few exceptions. Our soaps are unprocessed which means each bar contains naturally-occurring glycerine for your skin's enjoyment. Our soaps have awesome lather and are great for skin, face, and hair. If used for hair, be sure to use pure water without minerals. A shower-head filter works great for this. Follow with your usual conditioner or a vinegar and water rinse. This all-in-one soap makes a great every-day bar as well as the perfect soap for travel. For more details, please continue reading below. Thank you.
MADE IN ALASKA!
Our soaps are handmade in small controlled batches by me (Kelly) here on our farm. The kids help cut, package, organize, and market our
soaps. We enjoy the
opportunity to work together.
We support our local Alaskan economy
by purchasing most of our soap-making ingredients right here in the Valley from
The largest, single ingredient in all our soaps is our farm-fresh, creamy, and raw goat's milk, giving our soaps exceptional moisturizing and nourishing properties. Goat's milk contains cream & fat molecules that softens, hydrates, and creates a creamy, moisturizing effect for your skin. Goat's milk contains many vitamins useful for healthy skin, particularly vitamin A which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue and maintain healthy skin. Goat's milk is high in mineral content, especially selenium which serves as an anti-oxident that helps protect the skin from the sun while giving the skin elasticity. Goat's milk also contains alpha-hydroxy acids, such as lactic acid, which help remove dead skin cells. The alpha-hydroxy acids break down the bonds that hold the dead skin cells together resulting in a natural and gentle exfoliation. This helps smooth and soften your skin.
Love it! Love your skin!
The largest, single ingredient in our soaps is pure, fresh, raw Alaskan goat's milk from our Alpine dairy goats. This is blended with olive oil, coconut oil, lard, palm oil, castor oil, & sodium hydroxide (lye) to create a soft and gentle soap suitable for all skin types. Other added ingredients are listed below by each soap variety. Each bar weighs 4.5 to 5 ounces unless otherwise noted.
We use high quality essential oils to create wonderfully scented soaps. We love the aromatherapy and other benefits the essential oils add. Some of our favorites are:
Tea Tree - antiviral, anti fungal, and antibacterial properties.
Lavender - skin-healing properties & calming aromatherapy.
Lemongrass and various citrus - adds joyful & uplifting aromatherapy and cleansing properties.
Clove - warming.
Peppermint - cooling, stimulates scalp, energizes the mind, anti-septic, anti-dandruff.
Cedarwood - anti-septic, acne fighter, fungicidal, astringent, tonic, anti-inflammatory.
Sweet Orange - Uplifting, cheerful scent.
WARNING ~ Many essential oils are not appropriate to use during pregnancy. Please consult your health care professional prior to using essential oils during pregnancy.
Each natural fat/oil is selected for the properties it adds to our soaps. Olive oils is added for it's excellent moisturizing & conditioning properties. Castor is added as a humectant & for it's ability to add supreme lather. Coconut oil adds hardness, cleansing properties & creamy lather. Lard adds rich creamy lather, conditioning properties, and hardness to the bar. Palm oil adds hardness, conditions, & adds to a creamy lather.
Sometimes we fudge a little on the "all natural" rule and add a fragrance oil when we find a just "gotta-have-it" scent. A benefit of fragrance oils is that the strong scent often lasts longer than essential oils in cold processed soaps. We use high quality fragrance oils. Currently we have two soap varieties that contain fragrance oils, Lilac and Peony.
OUR BROOKS RANGE EO BLEND
Brooks Range essential oil blend - We created this special blend using essential oils of lavender, cedarwood, rosemary, & lime and named it in honor of my brother and one of his favorite places, the Brooks Range. We have dedicated soaps containing this blend to my brother, Jon, who had many adventures in this magnificent mountain range. He loved it so much that he named his oldest son Brooks. This awesome blend is enjoyed by both men and women and we think the name fits it just right.
Due to the handmade nature of these products, variations may occur as a
result of slight differences in ingredients, soaping temperatures, and technique.
Each handmade bar is truly one-of-a-kind and unique!
Choose any 4 soaps from those listed as available below. Please indicate your soap choices in a note to us on checkout. Happy shopping!
Essential oils of rosemary, peppermint, and sage are added to this bar for a cool, clean, & refreshing lather and scent. One of our favorite bars! Love this one for skin and hair. Be sure to use pure water, without minerals, when using natural soap as shampoo. A shower filter works great for this. This bar is colored using natural spirulina powder. The peppermint in this bar leaves a temporary cool feeling on the skin...Love it!
Essential oils of lavender, orange, and ylang ylang grace this soap for a calm and cheerful scent. Fuchsia colorant is added for a bright fireweed-worthy color. We love Alaskan Fireweed which blooms rapidly and abundantly after forest fires or other forest tree loss, and adds such beauty to the landscape. We Alaskans watch summer unfold as this flower blooms progressively up the stalk until summer's end.
The natural activated charcoal in this soap creates an awesome jet black bar. Activated charcoal adds very mild exfoliation and deep cleansing and is said to be a mild detoxifier as it draws impurities to itself. Our Brooks Range essential oil blend is added for a luxurious scent which is enjoyed by both men and women. See details about the Brooks Range essential oil blend under Essential Oils above.
