What's special about these soaps? They are creamy, hard bars, lather well, and fragrant with an abundance of real essential oils--not synthetics. They are primarily organic virgin coconut oil, organic shea butter, and olive oil with mango butter and organic palm kernel oil. Butters make a more solid bar than refined oils. They are made in small batches (18 bars at a time averaging 5 ounces each) with over 3 ounces of essential oil in each batch for a robust aroma. The process from start to finish is about 4 hours' labor. Making a batch takes 2 hours. Curing is 2 weeks or so. Bars are then cut, hand shaved, beveled, labeled, and wrapped. A bar typically lasts one person 2 weeks if it is stored in an area out of the shower spray!
