Product Sub-Categories: Vegetable Oil Only Soaps, Tallow & Vegetable Oil Soaps Ginger Hollow’s handcrafted, artisan natural soap is made from all natural ingredients, (organic where possible), no synthetic fragrances, and no chemicals. I provide full disclosure of all ingredients on labels. Fragrances are essential oils and are used according to aromatherapy guidelines for safety. Lye is sodium hydroxide, an essential soap-making ingredient which turns fat/oils into soap. Some soaps use tallow derived from locally grown small farm beef. I am not a vegetarian but respect animal life. In the process of saponification, when the fat or oils become soap through reacting with the sodium hyrdroxide (lye), glycerin is formed. Commercial soap makers often remove this and sell it as a separate product. The remaining material, the solids, become the soap, which can have a drying effect on skin. Our soap, which is always hand made in small batches, keeps all the naturally occurring glycerin. Our bar soaps don’t even feel dry. This is one reason they work so well and our customers love them. To preserve their special qualities the bars of soap are individually wrapped in food grade clear cello bags which also protect the essential oil aroma. Labels are attached over the bags. Soap bars range from “brownie shape” at 2.4oz, through 3.4oz loaf bar up to 5.4oz domed bar. Specialty shapes include hearts and daisies averaging 1.2oz.

Since ancient times lye soap made with animal fat was the best cleaning product in climates where coconut oil wasn’t available. Now the two make a balanced soap that cleans while being kind to skin. Just Plain Soap is a good laundry soap and a good basic sink or bath tub soap. See the recipe and photos of the process at http://www.gingerhollow.com/herbal-recipes/homemade-laundry-soap-recipe
