I have always wanted to learn to make my own soap. The kind of soap that does not have too much chemicals but still leaves your body nourished. But, the problem is that time is always against me. A very close friend of mine has been making some amazing soap and I wanted to share it with my readers. If you are looking for all natural soaps, then you are going to love Clear creek mountain soap. I was drawn to her soaps because it is hand-made, all natural and so beautifully presented.
Below is her story how she started her company:
I’m a veterinarian by day and soap-maker by night. I began doing this at the request of my husband, Stephen. During his years in research science, he developed a distain for products composed of materials with questionable safety. In particular, he wanted us to switch to soaps that did not contain triclosan, an antimicrobial and antifungal agent used in many soaps and detergents. The following is an excerpt from the FDA on triclosan:
“Animal studies have shown that triclosan alters hormone regulation. Other studies in bacteria have raised the possibility that triclosan contributes to making bacteria resistant to antibiotics.”
I believe in being responsible with what we put on our bodies and into the environment. I make my soap in small batches, entirely by hand and with only the purest ingredients; they do not contain any preservatives, bleaches, or fillers. My base formula includes high quality oils such as olive & coconut for a gentle, nourishing bar of soap as well as castor oil to suspend the lather. Our sensitive skin soaps (Oatmeal, Honey, and Milk Soap and Naked Soap) also include shea butter and locally sourced goat’s milk for extra moisturizing. The colors you see are the result of a mixture of spices, clays, or charcoal – no chemicals here! And I use only the highest quality essential oils and fragrance oils from Bramble Berry.
What I’ve come up with are a handful of soaps that I’m really proud of. They look and smell beautiful and I hope you’ll enjoy using them as much as I’ve enjoyed making them!
I share with my readers what I believe are really great products. The holidays are around the corner and this is a great gift to give to friends, family or colleagues.
