Frequently Asked Questions
ABOUT HANDMADE NATURAL SOAP
ARE ALL NATURAL SOAPS THE SAME?
No, not all natural handmade soap is the same. Soaps will have different properties depending on the oils used. A-DORIUS soap has a balanced formula which gives longevity, gentleness & emollient qualities. Our soap is also cold pressed which enables the soap to hold the properties of not only the oils used but the essential oils. We don’t use melt and pour bases which in my opinion is drying to the skin. Cold pressed soap is more difficult to make but well worth the time and effort. Be aware that commerical made soap can still claim to be natural!!
CAN I USE THIS SOAP ON MY CHILDREN?
Yes you can use true handmade soap on your children. I would recommend the goats milk + honey bar for ages 0 - 5. Children at this age have more delicate skin and are more prone to suffering from eczema. If your child/children have not shown signs of skin problems then using the especially designed Just 4 Bub - Hair & Body Wash would be a lovely product getting them to smell like little angels.
WILL THIS SOAP CURE MY ECZEMA?
I cannot make claims that my soap will cure your skin problems. I can say however the customers that have had skin problems like eczema, irritations, rashes etc have noticed an improvement with their skin since using the soap. Again I would recommend the goats milk and honey soap to begin with. The reason for skin flare ups with commercial made soap is probably due to artifical fatty acids which mimic true plant oils, preservatives, hardners and the small amount of glycerin retained after they sell it off as a by-product when thet make their soap.
CAN I USE YOUR SOAP ON MY FACE?
Yes you can. Because of the high content of glycerin retained within the soap you will be left with gently cleansed skin without the taught, tight, drying feeling that those commerical soap bars leave.
I WANT TO GO BACK TO USING A SHAVE SOAP. DO YOU HAVE A BAR SUITABLE TO SHAVE WITH?
Yes we have the men’s shave bar specifically designed for this purpose with added shea butter and castor oil along with a fresh lemony scent from lemon myrtle essential oil and lime essential oil. Best used with a good quality shave brush.
HOW LONG WILL A SOAP BAR LAST?
This is a common question but difficult to answer as with so many customers rate of usage is so different. For one person may use the bar and it will last them a week, while others can share a bar between family members and it will see them through one week. So it’s plain to see that there is no definitive answer to this question. A comment I often receive is that the soap just seems to last and last!
DO YOU HAVE A NON-SCENTED SOAP?
Yes we do. We have the goats milk + honey soap. No essential oil are added to this bar, yet there is a small amount of organic honey to give the bar a subtle smell to mask a bit of the goats milk smell.
WHY IS YOUR GOATS MILK SOAP NOT WHITE?
Good question! During the soap making process the temperatures are kept low even when the freshly made batch is saponifying in the next 24-48 hours after pouring it into the moulds. Milk soaps, unlike standard cold pressed soap needs no insulation. It is through this phase that the goats milk soap turns a lovely yellow to light caramel colour. A true cold pressed goats milk soap will never be white. If it is then it’s not handmade and more than likely it will have additives to make it white. See the soap making process by clicking here
