About this deal

Wooden Mold – I use one homemade by my husband. Its inner dimensions are 8″ x 3.5″ x 3.5″. Wooden molds should always be lined with parchment or freezer paper. Add the lye slowly, stirring constantly. It will take several minutes to do this – don’t rush this part. Make sure every bit of lye is dissolved. The milk might turn a bright yellow and smell a little weird. That’s okay and perfectly normal. Aqua/Water/Eau, Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Chloride, Glycol Distearate, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut/Noix De Coco) Oil, Hydrolyzed Milk Protein, Albumen, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut/Noix De Coco) Fruit Extract, Sodium Hydrolyzed Potato Starch Dodecenylsuccinate, Polyquaternium-22, Linoleamidopropyl PG-Dimonium Chloride Phosphate, PEG-7 Amodimethicone, Polyquaternium-39, Laureth-4, PEG-150 Pentaerythrityl Tetrastearate, PPG-2 Hydroxyethyl Cocamide, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Citrate, Hexylene Glycol, Citric Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Benzoate, Formic Acid, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Glycerin, Coconut Acid, Disodium Tetrapropenyl Succinate, Parfum/Fragrance. Since it’s an additive used in small amounts (like oatmeal, honey, poppy seeds, etc) it won’t alter the overall recipe in any other way. Because we make our products for our families, we have a strict ingredient philosophy that excludes ingredients like Parabens, Phenoxyethanol and penetration enhancers.

One thing we hear a lot about our shampoo is how lovely the smell is. We couldn’t agree more. For this, we sourced a phthalate-free fragrant oil so you can have beautiful smelling hair without the sensitivity. Now though there are so many great resources out there and so many wonderful soap makers sharing their hard earned knowledge online.Aqua (H₂O’s Fancy Name), Cocamidopropyl Betaine (Coconut-Derived Cleanser), Decyl Glucoside (Glucose-Derived Cleanser), Lauryl Glucoside (Glucose-Derived Cleanser), Glycol Distearate (Emollient), Sodium Cocoyl Sarcosinate (Coconut-Derived Cleanser), Coco Glucoside (Glucose-Derived Cleanser), Glyceryl Oleate (Natural Ester), Piroctone Olamine (Olamine Salt), Fragrance - Oatmeal (Phthalate-Free), Allantoin, Hydrolyzed Milk Protein (For Hair Repair). We get this one a lot. It may seem odd since shampoos usually seem geared to a specific hair concern like dry, oily, coloured, damaged (need we go on?) etc. But in our opinion, we don’t think it’s needed if you make a good shampoo, and hair just needs to be washed. And if you look closely you might notice that there isn’t much difference in the ingredient listings anyway. It’s kind of like pet food made specifically for indoor pets and outdoor pets (which is actually a thing) – not sure what difference this would make.

We might not have words like "Earth", "Nature" or "Enviro" in our name, but we think we're one of the most environmentally friendly skincare companies around. We're always looking for new ways to keep reducing our environmental hoof print, and because this planet means the world to us, we've stepped up our commitment to it and part of that includes RECYCLING. You can use rose petals in most any soap recipe, when incorporated as an infused oil or infused liquid (tea). They won’t add scent or color to your soap, but some people feel the benefits remain in the soap. (I’m in the camp that believes they do too.) You could also infuse some of the oil with rose petals to use in the recipe. Here’s a post that tells how to make rose infused oil:

Does your shampoo strip colour?

Then a third option is to reserve about 1 oz of the water from a recipe, using the rest of the water to make the lye solution. Mix the reserved 1 oz of water with 1 tablespoon of milk powder until very smooth. Once your soap reaches light trace, you can stir it in along with honey before pouring in the mold. Our Milk Shampoo is one of our most popular products. It was originally made for a family member who had a scalp so itchy they went to bed with olive oil on their scalp and cling wrap around their head. It took us 6 months of trialing until we were able to banish the cling wrap to the kitchen for good.

You can use cow, goat, coconut, rice, almond, oat, and all kinds of alternative milks to make soap. Another alternative is to reconstitute the powdered milk so it’s a liquid milk, freeze it and proceed with the recipe as normal, using the frozen milk to make your lye solution. I use whole milk – sometimes raw and sometimes pasteurized, since that’s what we drink, but you can use lower fat versions as well. When using milk substitutes, the less additives, the better. Milk Soap Video: Apply generously to wet hair, massage into a lather through to ends, then rinse the hair thoroughly. After shampooing, follow with Nourishing+ Coconut Milk Conditioner for best results.Compared to common inexpensive store-bought soaps, soap making isn’t more cost effective. If you compare to ready-made organic or other handmade soaps, then the playing field evens out. It’s also nice to know exactly what’s in your bar of soap – no mystery ingredients! But, overall, I don’t consider soap making a frugal hobby or past-time. There’s some investment up-front in getting the equipment and ingredients. I liken it to raising our own food though. It’s not really more cost effective for us to do so, but it’s leaps ahead in quality of anything we can buy in the store and we can be 100% sure of what we’re exposing our family to. You do want to keep the amount of vanilla bean “caviar” on the low side or your soap could turn out scratchy.
