My husband, Penry, and I struggled to find a soap mild enough to prevent an irritating dry skin condition. In desperation I found a suitable soap on the Internet, however it came from England and with shipping fees it was becoming a very expensive purchase.
In early 2004 I decided I would study the feasability of making my own soap. I studied other people's recipes on the Internet, purchased books on soap making and then, armed with enough knowledge and the right ingredients set about making my first soap batch in November 2004. Two months later, after it had cured enough to be a mild soap, I was ecstatic to find my soap was even better than the soap I had purchased from England.
With quality, fresh ingredients, natural oils and a superfatting ratio of 5% our soap is perfect.
A few bars from my first batch was used at home and the rest was given away to friends and family to try. Everyone came back saying it was the best soap they had ever used.
The business name was registered in January 2005, as I realised I wanted to share my soap with others who were finding it difficult to find a non-drying soap for their sensitive skins.
This is my third improved website since June 2005, making it even easier for people to purchase these wonderful Australian handmade soaps.
