Widewater Soap Company

FAQ'S

HOW IS YOUR SOAP MADE?
My soap is made through the process of saponification.  It is the mixing of fats & oils with a base (lye).  While all real soap must be made with lye, no lye remains in the finished product after saponification.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WIDEWATER SOAP AND STORE BOUGHT SOAP?
Widewater soap is crafted with intention.  It is hand mixed, poured, cut, labeled, and packaged using only quality oils, butters, beeswax, vitamins, salts, extracts, herbs, clay, fragrance & essential oils.  It is free of detergents, preservatives, chemicals, synthetics additives, and foaming agents.

Store bought soap is typically made with chemicals and additives and crafted for profit.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO STORE HANDMADE SOAP?
  • Store it in a dry place away from direct sunlight and running/standing  water.
  • Let air circulate around it.
  • To keep dry between uses, use a loofah slice or dish that lifts the soap and allows it to drain.
DO YOU PROVIDE GIFT BOXES?
Yes, I can create one of a kind soap gift boxes.  Prices range from $15-25 each.  Email me at widewatersoapcompany@gmail.com.
