Our handmade soaps are primarily made from natural, moisture-rich vegetable oils. They contain no animal byproducts, alcohols, chemical hardeners, detergents, phthalates, sulfates, or sugar solutions. The Clear Soap is our only soap that contains a surfactant. These soaps are not elaborate blends of chemicals and detergents, which can be harsh on your skin and also can have a negative environmental impact due to manufacturing waste and their limited biodegradability.
These soaps rinse clean, leaving behind little to no moisturizing oils.
To get the best lather, use with a wet bath pouf or washcloth!
See banner at the top of the Home Page for current Turnaround Times (TAT).

Bar Size: All soaps except Slices are shown in the photos with approximate fluid ounces (volume), not in finished weight. Slices are shown with approximate finished weight.
Fragrances: Most of our soaps are scented with fragrance oils (all phthalate-free) and/or essential oils. Soaps labeled, “Simple”, have no added fragrance. Honeybee Simple Soaps have no added fragrance, however, they will naturally have a light scent of honey.
Colors: Most of our soaps contain cosmetic grade colorants. These include micas, clays, pigments, plant-derived colorants, activated charcoal, coconut carbon powder, and glitters. Colors may be different from what is shown online and can vary from bar to bar. Colors may change as the bar gets used. Some soaps have mica and/or glitter on their surface; this mica and/or glitter will wash off after a few uses and the bar will have more lather after that. Although the lather on all bars is nearly always light in color, we recommend that you do not use white or light-colored cloths or towels with soaps of dark or rich colors. Soaps labeled, “Simple” have no added colorants.
Loofah, Oatmeal, Poppy Seeds, Pumice, and Salts: Soaps containing loofah, ground oatmeal, poppy seeds, pumice, and/or salts should not be used on the face or on sensitive or damaged skin.
Packaging: Most bars are partially shrink-wrapped in polypropylene and then sealed in a polypropylene bag so the packaging may look clunky. This is necessary to protect the soaps in the mail. Use a sharp scissors to carefully cut off the polypropylene shrink wrap. Keep soaps sealed in their original packaging or sealed in a polypropylene bag until ready to use.
Shelf Life and Storage: Although the soaps do not have an indefinite shelf life, their lathering and cleansing qualities will remain for at least a year. After a time, however, appearance and colors may change, fragrances may fade, and soaps may shrink slightly as they begin to lose moisture. Soaps may develop a translucent or white “glycerin dew”, which is beads of water being drawn from the air onto the soap surface. If this happens, you can simply use the soap or place it in the sun until the beads evaporate or wipe with a clean cloth. Do not let soaps sit in water; they will last longer if stored on a self-draining dish or on a soap-saver/soap-lift.
Palm Oil: The Palm Oil is sourced from companies that comply with RSPO.
We cannot be held responsible for allergic reactions or conditions due to use of our products. If you have known allergies, check product label and associated ingredient information above before using. For people with sensitive skin, test products on a small area to see if you have a reaction.
