Why Use Homemade Soap?
What Is The Difference?
There is a major difference in a commercial bar of soap versus a
homemade bar. The difference is the glycerin content. Glycerin is a
natural by-product of saponification, which is the soap making process.
When a commercial soap is processed, the glycerin is removed and sold to
the cosmetic industry and others because it is a valuable by-product.
This wonderful glycerin is all left in a handmade bar of soap.
Glycerin is a humectant...a substance which attracts moisture to your
skin. In other words, it moisturizes your skin. Glycerin is what creates
the silky feeling you notice when using a bar of homemade soap.
If you have never used homemade soap before, we certainly hope you try a
bar of Nebraska Sunset Soap. We know you will be hooked, just as we
were when we first started using homemade soap. You will
love the way your skin feels when you begin using our soap...you won't
believe the lather and the wonderful scents. In addition, the bar
lasts as long or longer than a commercial bar if kept dry between uses.
Our customers tell us they would never switch back to commercial bars
again. Read the label of any commercial bar and you will be
surprised...they certainly have a lot of chemicals listed. We know we
like reading labels where the ingredients are items we can understand.
Our soap is not made from a melt and pour base. Your skin will feel the
difference between homemade, 'melt and pour' and commercial bars. We hand
make our soap in small batches to retain total control over the end
Each batch is made using premium ingredients and craftsmanship. We like
each bar to have a dazzling, artistic look to it. In this day and age,
when we rush so much, we want the few minutes you get to relax in the
shower to be an awesome experience. We are a family based business making
a quality product that will allow you to unwind after a long day and know
that everything about the product you are using is gentle and kind to your
skin...no chemicals involved. We combine the old time-honored tradition
of soap making with modern digital scales for accuracy to produce the
gentlest of soaps for you and your family.
