Organic Pink Grapefruit and Tangerine Shea Butter Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on October 05, 2012

Handmade soap using pure organic essential oils

As are all of our soaps, this one is made in small fresh batches - especially important when working with citrus essential oils. We use only  fresh cold-pressed and organic citrus essential oils because although they are quite powerful in many ways with a long list of health benefits - see our blog - they are also prone to oxidation, which renders them not only NOT beneficial but potentially harmful. You will enjoy the refreshing, uplifting and immune-enhancing properties of this particular bar of soap.

Handcrafted Ocean Mist Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on September 27, 2012

I'm not good at describing fragrances, but this is how the supplier describes the original scent - "seductive, daring, rugged and robust muguet (lily-of-the-valley) but it also has the coolness, purity of the sea." And added to that it is "balanced with sandalwood and oak moss" and "deepened with spice notes of cloves and nutmeg." Whew - I don't know that I can smell all of that, but it is a very subtle, clean, fresh scent and I think it will be a keeper.

Blissful Babies Calendula & Chamomile Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on January 13, 2012

Your pediatrician will often tell you NOT to use any "soap" on your baby's tender skin. This is because they don't know about handmade soap made the old-fashioned way without chemicals or other harmful ingredients. We go a step further and add only certified organic oils and certified organic shea butter. A LOT of shea butter as a matter of fact and you will find very few (if any) soapmakers who use as much shea butter or certified organic ingredients. This results in a very healthy choice that will protect and hydrate your baby's skin without disturbing the pH balance that is there to protect this new skin.

Organic Oatmeal, Honey & Buckwheat Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009

An excellent “scrubby soap” to exfoliate all skin types. We’ve used certified organic oat bran, almonds, honey and buckwheat – all of which are very beneficial for the skin. Light scent of honey and oatmeal.

Handcrafted Oakmoss & Olive Leaf Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009

Awesome fragrance that leaves a clean, fresh and not over-powering drift of fragrance after using. Oakmoss is a wonderful clean fragrance for both women or men, but the men particularly love it. We’ve added olive leaf powder to give it the beautiful green color and to add to its beneficial properties. Olive leaf powder is believed to have antibacterial properties and studies suggest that it can increase circulation and healing of the skin.

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 Vitamin C Ester Serum

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009

This serum has a very high concentration of Vitamin C esters – the only kind that your skin can actually absorb and use. The Vitamin C esters create a unique and powerful synergy with the other vitamins, such as E, and extracts included in this blend. Other vitamin C products you might see on the market contain water-soluble vitamin C (ascorbic acid), which is not able to penetrate the surface of the skin as it repels water-soluble substances. Water-soluble vitamin C when used as a supplement can be helpful indeed, but as a skin-care product you will need a lipid-soluble ester of Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate) in order to protect skin cells and skin tissue.
 

This serum, due to the variety of botanical extracts, helps protect your skin from environmental toxins that it “faces” on a daily basis.  This is a light serum and powerful but is able to provide a high level of antioxidants without stinging or causing inflammation to your skin. A vitamin C ester skin cream can both help repair and protect your skin from environmental damage which causes wrinkles and discoloration.

Skin Types:  Mature, dry, normal, sensitive and combination.

Organic Green Tea, Tea Tree & Lavender Cleanser

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009


This organic green-tea and aloe vera based lotion-type cleanser is perfect for peeling away layers and deep cleaning without leaving a residue.

Green Tea, rooibos and white tea are well-researched and shown to be excellent anti-oxidants to counteract the free radicals we all acquire daily.  We then add our "skin blend" of pure essential oils to add to the powerful benefits of this cleanser. Look at our ingredients and you will note that green tea extract is at the top of our list of ingredients – meaning we’ve added a high percentage – not just a small amount as most of the products you will see on the shelves today.  There are interesting reports that Green Tea Extract can retard/prevent certain types of sun damage and also can help reinforce the skin’s lipid barrier by stimulating ceramide production, rooibos tea and white tea also have a stellar report card for skin health.

In an issue of Dr. Andrew Weil’s “Self-Healing” newsletter he has included an article entitled “Natural Skin Care Advice”, in which he agrees with us that healing comes from within first – good nutrition, good spiritual health – and then outward defenses.  In this article he recommends only a few things – one of which is green tea extracts.  To quote: “…and lab studies suggest green tea may protect against skin cancer.”  You will find certified organic green tea as our most often used ingredient and always at the top of our list of ingredients, not stuck it at the bottom – meaning it’s only there in small, useless amounts.

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.
