Why Choose my handmade cold process soap
The Creamy Feel
Be Kind Always cold process soap is made with all-natural ingredients (plant oils and butters) which create a soft, creamy lather for deep moisturisation. Unlike other 'soap' types (which are not actually soap), the oils and butters used in cold process varieties penetrate deep into into the skin to help minimise problematic skin. Each oil and butter has its own beneficial attributes.
The benefits of ALL natural soap making ingredients like olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter and castor oil can be lost through the heating process in hot process soap techniques; the cold process method ensures these natural ingredient qualities and benefits are better preserved.
Intensive Aromatherapy Scent (unless unscented)
Be Kind Always only use natural essential oils in our soap, these essential oils also have amazing benefits themselves. Because cold process soap takes a 4+ weeks to fully cure, the scent intensifies over time.
Unlike hot process soap, alternatives made through the cold process method can be skilfully whipped for the lightest touch, even floating on water! Cold process soap has the ability to create incredible lather to allow a truly luxurious bathing sensation.
Be Kind Always soap only uses natural ingredients, those ingredients are the product of the final colour finish. I do not add any synthetic colouring to my soap. I also do not add any 'fancy garnish' to the top of the bar just to make it pretty. If it does not add a skin loving benefit to the soap, it is not going in.
Cold process soap making techniques include a level of artistry, with many soaps decorated with swirls, layers of color and all sorts of interesting designs. Using all natural ingredients for texture. Designs may vary, but the ingredients used remain the same.
Natural Cold Process Soap
Many soap makers (including myself) choose to work with natural ingredients and the cold process method is ideal to preserve the benefits of plant-derived butters and oils. I use olive oil as the base for all of my handmade soaps with coconut oil, shea butter and a differing oil adding its own unique element to each batch of soap to create the most nourishing natural soaps. My artisanal soaps are the result of a number of elements: a combination of natural ingredients, a traditional soap making method and the level of luxury that only handmade products carry.
