Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Handmade Soap

October 18, 2019 1 min read

You know how grocery store "soap" leaves your skin feeling dry + itchy, covered in a weird film? Our soap doesn't play those games with your skin. 
Why is this? Well, we make our soap with a simple recipe using soybean oil, shea butter + coconut oil. Using the cold process method of soap making, our bars retain their skin loving glycerin. Glycerin attracts moisture to your skin all day long leaving your dermis happy, supple and radiant.
Commercial manufacturers remove the glycerin and use itch inducing chemical lathering agents. Once the glycerin is removed, their bars are no longer considered to be soap. For real. This is why you will never find the word soap on their packaging. Instead, you'll find "beauty bar" or "body bar". 
Our soap is handmade in small-ish (30 pound) batches in our storefront located in Downtown Coos Bay, Oregon on the Southern Oregon Coast. Our bars are hefty starting at 6oz with some weighing a little over 7oz. With such chunky bars, we always recommend cutting them. Not only will they be easier to manage in the shower, but they'll last a lot longer too. With handmade soap, be sure to let them drip dry between use or they'll get all mushy. 
Feel good about pampering your skin using Canard Labs soap. You deserve it!
