There was a time when I didn’t even know there was such a thing as handmade soap anymore. I thought the days of soap making from scratch was confined to that period of time when early settlers of the United States had to make do with what they had, or when hardy pioneers forged paths across the country in search of a new piece of land to call home. Who made soap from scratch in these modern times?
But in my search to find a better way to care for my curly wavy hair and my aging skin, I began to learn that handmade soap did indeed exist and that it is a superior option to the sulfate laden detergent based body bars and shampoos that are readily available. So after reading all I could find about soap making at the time, the little information that was available online and in books, I gathered all the necessary supplies, overcame my fear of using lye, and made a simple batch of cold process soap. I was hooked. And after using the soap I had made, my skin was no longer dry and itchy. So I joined the ranks of soap makers who link the past with the present and offer a better future for safe, gentle body care around the globe. Who knew that something as ordinary as soap could be extraordinary?
Since I first made that simple batch of soap in 2009, hundreds of bars of soap made in my kitchen have been used and enjoyed. Today handmade luxury soap from The Lathered Lamb is still being made in small batches from scratch with good for your skin ingredients like coconut oil, shea or cocoa butter, goat milk, and silk. I formulate each batch of soap to gently clean the skin while delighting the senses with wonderful fragrance, beautiful design, and silky lather. My handmade soaps embody my commitment to create an extraordinary everyday product that is a wholesome combination of natural beauty, simplicity, and usefulness. My motto is: Live Simply. Use Soap.
