How To Use


We believe cleansing your face to maintain your complexion is simple and can be accomplished with a good natural soap bar, your fingertips and water. The purpose of soap is SIMPLY to cleanse the skin from oil and dirt. Here are a few tips we think can help you.

  • Use your hands to lather your soap, especially if you have sensitive skin.

  • Make sure your hands are clean, using lukewarm water.

  • Use your fingertips to gently massage the lather over your face using circular motions - make sure you AVOID getting the soap in your eyes.

  • Rinse with cool water and pat dry.

  • If you are in the shower, after you are done, use cool water from your sink afterwards to close your pores and then pat your face dry.

Using Washcloths On Your Face: We do not recommend using washcloths on your face with our soap bars. Especially our Activated Charcoal soaps. They are deep cleansing and your fingertips will do just fine. However, if you do use a washcloth on your face:

  • Wet the cloth to create a creamy lather with your soap bar.

  • Apply to your face by a gentle massage using circular motions.

  • Rinse with cool water and pat dry.

When Using Washcloths On Your Body:

  • Exfoliating or scrubbing too hard can cause the skin to become sensitive and red.

  • If you have acne, blackheads and sensitive skin, make sure your washcloth is CLEAN. Washcloths can re-deposit dirt and toxins back into your skin.

  • Never share your washcloths with anyone else.

  • Clean and replace your washcloths as often as possible.

  • When using washcloths on your body, you can scrub more in some areas where the skin is thicker and will not become easily irritated.

  • Use warm, not hot water to wash your face.

  • Use cool water as a final rinse to close your pores.

  • Avoid products made with synthetic ingredients that can irritate facial skin.

  • Avoid products that contain alcohol which can cause skin to become tight and dry.

  • Apply a moisturizer immediately after washing your face while skin is still damp.  


This is a very important question.   Natural soaps, unlike commercial soap, retain its moisturizing properties that is called glycerin. This moisturizing benefit is removed in mass produced soaps.  This is the reason you need lotions and your skin becomes dry, itchy and oftentimes irritated. Here are the three main factors to consider the life span of your soap bar:

  • how many people are using it

  • how often you and others bathe or shower

  • If you use a washcloth or exfoliant (Loofa) to lather the soap.  We recommend that you always use your hands to lather your handmade soaps.

  • If one person primarily uses the bar, and showers daily, keeps the soap bar free from water, your soap bar should easily last for about a month and much longer if you only use our facial soap bars, like our DETOX - Activated Charcoal Soap Bars.

How To Care for Your New Handmade Soap:

Store your soaps in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. When using your soap, be sure to allow your soap to dry in between uses. DO NOT allow soap to sit in water.


Handcrafted soaps contain natural glycerin which is a humectant. This natural ingredient separates handcrafted soaps from commercial soaps by far.  Because glycerin does attract moisture, we recommend using a plastic or stainless steel soap saver dish to place your soaps when not in use.

When lathering your soap bar, use your hands instead of a washcloth.  Especially when using our exfoliating soap bars.
