Ash Creek Soaps

Ash Creek Soaps Ash Creek Soaps are Handcrafted in Oregon in small batches from quality ingredients. Simplicity is what makes them Special. Why Handcrafted Soap?

Commercial soaps vs. Handmade soap The commercial soaps carried at most chain stores, are typically full of chemical additives. These additives can not only dry out your skin, but can lead to irritation. This is not only because most commercial soap bars contain synthetic additives, but also because they actually contain significant amounts of synthetic detergents. While that's great for your dishes, it's not very good for your skin. Another negative to commercial bar soap is that most soap companies take the glycerin out of their soap. All true soap made from scratch is glycerin soap. Glycerin is a natural byproduct of the soap making process. All soap is created through saponification, a process that occurs when vegetable oils and/or animal fats are mixed with a solution containing water and Sodium hydroxide (NaOH) (Lye). Saponification creates soap and glycerin. Most commercial soap companies remove the glycerin and sell it separately, since it is more valuable than the soap. Glycerin is a humectant, which means it absorbs water from the air and thus attracts moisture to your skin. Commercial soap manufacturers remove the glycerin from their soaps to use in products that command a higher price, like the creams and lotions that you need after using their soaps that dry out your skin! Handmade soap gently cleanses away excess oils and bacteria, but doesn't strip your skin of its natural oils. Even commercial soaps that are labeled as “natural” can be irritating to your skin. If commercial soap companies do add some natural ingredients to their soaps, they do so in such small quantities to be irrelevant in the final product. This is to give them the illusion that this soap is more natural, however, if you read the ingredient labels, the soap is still primarily made with synthetic ingredients. Our handmade soaps use simple, natural ingredients (a small number of our fragrances contain synthetic ingredients, but are used in tiny amounts. These are noted in the soap descriptions). All of our oils are food grade, and most are colored with natural pigments. I prefer non-fragranced soap, due to sensitive skin, so I use botanicals like herbs, teas and coffee to add color, texture and a faint scent to my unscented soaps. But we know that many people liked the scented soap, so we are also crafting many scented soaps for people who love those. We generally use natural essential oils, but a couple of our scents are only available in synthetic fragrance oils. Simplicity is what makes them Special!

I've been busy! Three new soaps, just unmolded and waiting to be cut! Lilac, Almond Lemongrass and Cucumber Honey.

Lilacs are always my signal that summer has arrived, so I did it as a last tribute to warm days starry nights.

The Almond Lemongrass smells amazing, and is colorful, (lol, it's handmade, I like to play!).
The Cucumber Honey is a Spa soap, and has a liberal dose of Oatmeal and Clay to make it extra luxurious. There are only a few bars of this one, and they will go fast, so PM me and I will set one aside for you. All bars $4.00 each, or 3/$10.

I have others too, Sweet Pea, Pina Colada, Green Apple, Bamboo, Blackberry, Cherry Almond, Cucumber Melon, Gardenia, Lavendar
