Little Roo – Handmade Soap

Little Roo handmade soap is made in small batches in our workshop, thus ensuring we have made the highest quality soap. We use high quality, 100% natural ingredients, including natural essential oils and natural clays for scent and colour. This creates a beautiful, soft on the skin soap that lathers nicely. However, our soaps may vary slightly in colour and size due to being handmade.

How we make our handmade soap

We use the cold process soap method to make all of our soaps. Because of this, it can take 4-6 weeks to make a batch. To make cold process soap, we start off by using sodium hydroxide (lye) and water. We then add the lye water carefully to our selected oils and butters which neutralises the lye, making it a natural component for our natural soaps. After we have mixed them together we then emulsify all of the ingredients together making our lovely natural soap. Our essential oils are 100% pure therapeutic grade for our lovely scents and natural clays for the colour. We don’t use any synthetic fragrance oils or artificial coloring.

We chose our oils and butters based off of the way they lather when used and their cleansing properties. Grapefruit seed extract is our super ingredient that helps the soap bars to last longer. It is also wise to keep your soaps dry between uses to ensure they last as long as possible. We hope you love our soaps as much as we do.
