A cleansing agent, manufactured in bars,

salts of various fatty acids of natural oils and fats.
Any magical power or process of
transmuting a common substance, usually of little value, into a
substance of great value.
Soap Alchemy LLC was born in 2001 from the desire
of our Soap Alchemist to find a bar of soap that would not irritate
his skin. Commercially made bars of soap, even the bars intended to
be used on sensitive skin, were simply too harsh.
So it was off to the library, the bookstores and
the internet to research how to make his own soap and in his kitchen
at home, he made his first bars of 100% All Natural, Vegetable
Based, Hand Crafted Soap and from that day on, he has not used a
commercially produced bar of soap or shampoo again.
After experimenting with his recipes, the Soap
Alchemist decided that his soap was too good to keep all to himself
so he began giving it away to friends and family and in 2007 began
selling it at the GLCC of South Florida's Bizarre Bazaar and now in
our store in Beaver PA and on
the internet for everyone!
Commercially produced soaps and cleansers process
all the good stuff right out of the soap to be used in other skin
care products such as lotions, creams and conditioners, leaving you
a bar of soap that dries the skin and irritates it with chemical
additives and fragrances, causing you to have to buy even more skin
care products to moisturize your skin and hair.
Soap Alchemy Soap processes the soap only so long
as it takes to make a good bar of soap. Using only Vegetable Based
oils, NEVER tallow (beef based oils,) and pure essential oils for
fragrances, everything that went into the batch, stays in the batch
so when it is poured into the molds, all the healthy, moisturizing
properties of the ingredients used are still in the soap. You should
find that with regular use you will find the need for more expensive
moisturizers to be minimal.
So when it
is cut, wrapped and packaged, you will get
everything you should from your bar of soap and you will never need
(or want to) buy another bar of commercially processed soap again!
Our Hands to Yours!
Our Hand Crafted Soaps are made from only
the finest Natural Ingredients in small batches in our soap kitchens
at our soap factory just north of
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We take a great deal of pride and care in
making soap. Our Soap Alchemist has tested each of his formulas to
ensure that only the best soaps are sent to your home and would not
put anything in the soap he would not use on his on body.
Each batch is carefully hand made from start to
finish and then hand cut and carefully hand packaged and sealed
before being sent to your door. Where possible, we use organic oils.
The color of the various bars comes from the natural oils in the
bars. The color can be different, varying by batch. This is because
of the harvest the oils came from. We use oils that have a healthy
value as the base oils in the soap.
As with all soaps, it is not meant for your eyes
but is great on every other part of your body. Our soaps are for
your whole body. Some people use our soaps for washing their hair as
well. Our bars contain a range of oils. Take Jojoba oil, it is a
wonderful oil for soap, lending moisturizing and emollient
properties. Jojoba is also one of the more expensive oils. Our Soap
Alchemist doesn't skimp though. The soap is created with you in
mind, as a friend, giving you a soap that is truly a good soap, not
a commercial process.
Our soaps are sold in two sizes. We have a Hand
and Face bar as well as an All Over
Body bar. (Since our soap is hand made and cut, there can be a minor difference in the final weight
and color of the hand cut bars.) All bars are wrapped as shown.
We hope that you find as much enjoyment out of
using our soaps as we do in crafting them. We're sure that once you
try our Hand Crafted Soaps, you will never again want to purchase
another commercially made bar or bottle of liquid soap again!
