The Soaping Owl creates small-batches of handcrafted cold process soaps as well as other hair and body products. All our soap bars are handmade with natural, skin-loving oils and butters minus the harsh chemicals and detergents found in most store bought soaps. We strive to keep our ingredients pure and natural, while crafting gorgeous and creative soaps.
What is Cold Process?
Cold Process Soapmaking is the act of mixing plant or animal derived oils (common oils include Olive, Coconut and Palm) with an alkali (Sodium Hydroxide or Lye). The result is a chemical process called saponification. The composition of the oils change with the help of the lye to create a bar of soap. One of the main benefits of cold process soapmaking is having complete control over ingredients.
The Soaping Owl strives to use only the best ingredients for our soaps. All our oils and butters are natural and pure. Many luxurious additives are added to our soaps, including Bee Pollen Powder, 100% Whole Greek Yogurt, Pure Cucumber Juice, Fresh Fruit Purees, Avocado Puree, Aloe Vera Gel, Coconut Milk, Goat Milk, Activated Charcoal, Honey, and sometimes even Beer and Wine! You will see all the ingredients clearly listed on our product page.
