Handcrafted Pumpkin Spice Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009

Pumpkin and spice and everything nice!

We first made this soap in the fall, but have discovered that it is a wonderful all-year soap that is particularly beneficial to all skin types due to the Vitamin A content from the pumpkin flakes and powder, as well as the organic botanicals. It is a “scrubby” soap and makes this bar of soap an excellent exfoliating and antioxidant-rich soap. It looks pretty and smells just like Pumpkin Spice. We've combined pure essential oils with a hint of pumpkin fragrance and the combination is one that is a favorite with many of our customers.

Handmade Almond & Oats Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009

If you like the fragrance of almonds and if you like “scrubby” soaps that are extremely beneficial for your skin as they clear off that dead layer of skin, you will love this soap. The beauty of handcrafted soap, especially with the high percentage of shea butter we add, is that the pH of your skin is balanced and not stripped as it is with commercial soaps. We’ve added organic oats to contribute to the scrubbiness, as well as organic ground almonds. The oats have their own contribution to these skin-healthy ingredients.

I have to tell you, we've tried very many almond fragrance oils but none of them gave me that same pleasant aroma that real almond extract does - you know the kind you use in cooking. I always add almond extract to most of the Christmas cookies I make because I love the taste. Well - we recently tested a new almond fragrance that is, if possible, stronger than almond extract.  And the even better news is that it came through in the cold process soap very nicely - good, strong, but not overwhelming, warm fragrance of almonds. This is definitely a keeper.

Organic Alpha Hydroxy Acid Cleanser

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009


This is THE ONE you have to have in your skin care regimen.  The texture reminds me of Greek yogurt, except there is no odor or tartness to this cream, and it simply melts away all traces of make-up without drying out your skin.  Use every other day or every third day and it does all those wonderful things that alpha-hydroxy acids are supposed to do. It dissolves that old, dead layer of skin and leaves you with soft, clean, healthy skin.  We have found with experience that the small percentage of alpha hydroxy acids, like our 5-6%, when used every 2 to 3 days can be much less harsh on your skin and actually more effective. There is no issue of "recovery time" except that we recommend you avoid bright sunlight up to about an hour or two after using. Which is why I usually use this at night before going to bed or before a special evening occasion. Intuitively I personally cannot stress my skin to the degree that it is stressed with the high percentage AHA's which can only require my immune system to go into high gear and free radicals to run amok. This cleanser actually adds antioxidants to fight free radicals already rampant in our environment.

After using this cleanser your skin is now ready to receive that wonderful Skin Intensive Cream you’re about to put on it! Or if your skin isn't as dry as mine, you want to use the Every Day Facial Cream. We recommend our Green Tea Cleanser as your every day cleanser.

Sunburn Alert: This product contains natural fruit alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen and limit sun exposure while using this product.
