Can we answer some questions?
What is in Ancient Path soap?
The soaps are made with plant or nut oils (palm nut oil, olive oil, coconut oil), filtered water, and various essential (non-synthetic) oils for fragrance. Ground plant materials (lavender buds, oatmeal, spices) may be added to various soaps, and natural colorants may be used.
How much is it? Do you mail your soap?
Thank you for supporting our business over the last 10 years. Julie has made the difficult decision to wind down her commercial soap making.
What is saponification?
Saponification is the process of making soap. Oils are somewhat acidic. When combined with a strong base, a chemical reaction occurs using up the base, and producing soap and glycerin. Glycerin is an emollient, or skin softener; it is sometimes removed from commercial soaps and sold separately.
Why are the bars odd shapes?
The bars are cut from 9-12 pound blocks of soap by hand. Bars are weighed after cutting and have a minimum weight then of at least 4 ounces. As the whole process is by hand, each bar is unique. You can use a sharp kitchen knife to cut the bars if you prefer to a different size or shape.
