Alexis -Wrote– My Experience with handmade soap product:
I have chosen goat’s milk soap last week just to see how the goat milk soap work on my sensitive skin . I have never heard of this ingredient before so I wanted to try. It lathers well creamy and moisturize.
Anyway, this soap is really nice for daily use.
My second choice is a clear Castile Soap . Castile Olive is amazing in a babies bath. It’s pretty enough to set out in a soap dish for guests. It’s beautiful and my family favorite.

Review from out side people
So I joined this community a while back in desperate needs of a remedy for my eczema without having to vist the docotor. I think I may have found my answer!
On my journay to take better care of my skin and hair I have learned that I am very sensitive to sulfates (my skin absolutely hates the stuff!) I now use a SLS-free shampoo and natural soap that I bought from Naturalhandcraftedsoap.com (I am currently using the goat and cocnut milk one but plan to try others) and my skin is nowhere near as dry when i step out of the shower and I still feel very clean. I then pat my skin making sure not to totaly dry myself and then apply lotion. After that I take some cocnut oil let it melt in my palms and then message it onto my whole body.
I do this at night and then go to bed and when I wake up in the morning my whole body feels smooth! In the morning I don’t even have to use lotion I just put some coconut oil on my eczema and then get dressed. I don’t itch at all and best of all the year long spreading eczema outbreak I’ve had has begun to heal! I was just happy to not itch anymore but it’s healing now.
Hope this helps.

Robert R. Taylor, an entrepreneur of hygiene who made hand-washing a tidier, less slippery job by introducing Softsoap, the first mass-market pumpable liquid soap that rendered the traditional bar obsolete, died Aug. 29 in Newport Beach, Calif. He was 77.
He described Softsoap — dispensed with the gentle press of a miniature pump — as “soap without the soapy mess.” Its arrival was heralded by a staggering $6 million advertising campaign. Even more staggering was a go-for-broke gamble by Mr. Taylor that became a twice-told tale of business school.
Like a hand maker soap I like to take a moment to remember and pay tribute to the lives of the handcrafted artisan Robert R. Taylor more detailed about

Century Old Family of Natural Handcrafted Soap
Santa Lucia Murari Borba was a farmer’s daughter from Murari’s Borba, born in Italy 1904. She moved to Brazil in 1917 from her home in Tuscany – Italy , where she had to learn to make soap from scratch and essential oils from the plants out of necessity.
After years of making soap for her 13 children, her family finally convinced her to open a small soap shop in Sao Paulo Brazil where she made soaps with her family for 25 years, those soap recipes found there way to North Carolina last year when I went back to Brazil for Christmas and asked grandmother for food recipes to bring back to NC. While looking through boxes of recipes we came across all her old soap and essential oil recipes.

Jasmine Lilac Soap
Soap – contains many vitamins, but is particularly high in Vitamin A, which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue, and maintain healthy skin. There have been several medical studies showing that creams made with Vitamin A reduce lines and wrinkles, control acne, and provide some psoriasis relief. Water-based soaps can be artificially fortified with vitamins, but most aren’t.

Honey is a sweet treat for skin
Honey is also a humectant, so it helps retain moisture on the skin in much the same way as glycerin.
Cleopatra is said to have ruled Egypt with an iron fist. Apparently, it was also a smooth fist, since she was one of the more famous people in history to use honey for its skin-enhancing properties. In fact, Cleopatra’s legendary milk and honey baths are just one of many historical examples of people using honey to pamper their complexions. While Cleopatra didn’t know why honey softened her skin, new research suggests the queen of the Nile was definitely onto something.
Manufacturers have used honey in everything from hand lotions and moisturizers to bar soaps and bubble baths.
One reason they use honey is for its wholesome, all-natural image; more and more consumers are demanding cosmetics and personal care products made from natural ingredients. In the case of honey, however, image is just the beginning.
First, honey is a humectant, which means it attracts and retains moisture.
This makes honey a natural fit in a variety of moisturizing products including cleaners, creams, shampoos and conditioners. Honey also acts as an anti-irritant, making it suitable for sensitive skin and baby care products.
Honey’s prospects in skincare are looking even sweeter; research is currently underway to develop a process using honey to create alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). AHAs are an important ingredient in many skin creams and moisturizers because they help exfoliate the skin. Increased exfoliation, or renewal of the skin cells, can give skin a younger, more vibrant look.

Today from Blog post – August 22- 2013
The conversation began tentatively but the stories soon came bubbling out. I asked about their ancient honey-gathering practices. Marigan, a tribal elder, began. ‘In the old days entire families – men, women, children, babies and old people – went deep into the forest in the honey season. We camped there for days carrying just a little bit of rice. Everything else, the forest gave us. But honey was our life. We used it as food, as medicine and what we could not consume we sold. People call us honey hunters. That’s not right. We are honey harvesters. We wait for the right time, when we will cause the least harm to the bees, to the babies inside. Only then do we speak to the bees and take their honey.’ – See more at: http://newint.org/features/2009/09/01/tribal-peoples/#sthash.LEXClSwK.dpuf
