Indulgent Body & Bath specializes in natural handmade soap, body butters, solid lotions, lip balms, and other body products. We take pride in providing our customers with quality natural handmade products with only the best ingredients and offering some of the widest variety of bar soap available.
What you'll find in our products are pure & natural vegetable oils, nut oils, and butters. Most coloring comes from natural ingredients like fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices commonly found in many kitchens. Occasionally we will use naturally derived mineral oxides in coloring our products. Scents (when we use them) are essential oils or only the finest fragrance oils**. If you have very sensitive skin and cannot tolerate added scents, you'll find a great selection of unscented products with you in mind.
And, what won't you find in our soap? There are no detergents, no artificial preservatives, no dyes, and no petroleum products. We do not use any artificial or synthetic ingredients, dyes, or chemicals in our base soap recipes. When we do use fragrance oils (synthetic scent), it is clearly indicated in the ingredients. See the note below about fragrance oils.
Unlike other "all natural" soap makers, our products do not have ingredients like Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Chloride, EDTA, Tatrasodium Editronate, Benzyl Benzoate, and FD&C Coloring. Do these sound natural to you? Be an informed buyer: read the ingredients.
We also do something a bit different with our soap than other sites; we do not use one basic recipe and then just add fragrances. Each soap has its own set of ingredients, properties, and personality that makes it unique from the others. All ingredients are posted with each product.
We make all our soap products in our soap kitchen: handmade completely from scratch in small controlled batches - the old fashioned way (we measure out all the oils carefully, mix with the caustic solution, blend well, process with other ingredients like scents or herbs, pour into molds, cut by hand and let air dry for 6 weeks or more before offering to you.) When initially cut, each bar weighs in at a hefty 6 to 7+ ounces each. Unless otherwise noted, each bar of soap is a beautiful, rustic 5-6+ ounces big: and that's AFTER drying!
That's why our soap is in a category all its own. There really is no comparison between products made from scratch and other products you may find out there. Your skin will feel the difference; you will see and feel the difference in your skin.
