Just Soap


Soapmakers! We're always looking for the best fragrance, best ingredients and best natural skin safe colorants but I'm wondering if I'm the only one who didn't have a soap that was just soap. No extra emollient oils, butters or additives to make it "better". Just ordinary, made from 3 or 4 basic oils that's kind to the skin, soap. Because we all know that the glycerin will be there, no matter what, and that's what gives our soap it's special qualities...as we love tell our customers.

Since I had to make such a basic soap for my Advanced Soapmakers Certificate Exam with The Handcrafted Soapmakers Guild I have decided to keep that in my soap inventory. When I was making it I noticed how fresh & clean it smelled. And to me it was darn pretty when it came out of the mold and smelled even better than when I poured it. I just wanted to share my wonderful new discovery with everyone. Wonder how this will go over at my Farmers Market, where the first thing a customer does is puts the soap to their nose to smell.

  1. Good for you! Going back to the basics. I have two kinds of basic soaps. I enjoy them as much as the others.

  4. Hey Delores, I was always getting people ask me do I do a plain soap, and although I have quite a few unscented soaps they all had something else in them, colour or honey or something. I did exactly the same as you and called mine Simply Soap. That said, I've yet to sell a bar, lol.

  5. LOL with you Corrie. Isn't it amazing? I guess people want fragrance & colorants no matter what we make. I still love my Just Soap and I am keeping it in stock even if I have to use it up myself. I think it will probably out last the scented/colored ones anyway. At least we don't have to worry about the fragrance fading. LOL
