Handmade Soaps and More
Thank you for your interest in my products. I started making soap for Christmas gifts more than thirty years ago, and haven't stopped. From a plan to earn some Christmas money, it grew to a small business that allowed me to be a stay-at -home mom to our two sons, then expanded to employ 8 people at one point, and now it's back to a more manageable 'hobby business' that adds so much to my life.
Hundreds of batches later, I still enjoy making it all! New fragrances and new packaging ideas are still exciting, and ideas for new products never stop bubbling to the surface of my mind. Every time I set up a craft show I look forward to what the day will bring, and meeting you personally.
All of these natural gentle products are still made in my home; these days I have a separate soap kitchen with sound system in my basement. Sometimes things ramp up to production mode with the assistance of special nieces and friends.
As to our soaps: they provide a creamy, responsive lather, and both the liquids and bars last two to three times as long as commercial soaps. The natural abundance of glycerin means they will be respectful to even the most delicate, sensitive skin. Each type has a carefully researched combination of emollients and scents. I choose ingredients are of the highest quality: olive, almond, and coconut oils, true essential oils, butters, herbs, etc.
The Bath Bombe (AKA bath fizzies) are also hand made from my own recipes. We insure that they are Ph balanced for even the most delicate skin, and we add Vitamin E. If you haven't yet made time for a relaxing bath with one of these - DO! We change the selections of essential oils and fragrance blends more frequently with these, so be sure to ask what's new.
Recently I researched and developed some pampering skin care products too. Expect to see more of these, they are natural, soothing and healing treats, and so its satisfying to introduce them. They are made with tinctures and infusions and all kinds of wonderful essences. Some are whipped to creamy perfection as luscious as a bowl of cream.
Paula's Soaps will always be an earth-friendly, home based business, with the highest possible standards. We hope you will enjoy our products. They are guaranteed absolutely.
