A bar of PSS soap will last one person approximately 3 to 4 weeks. That time frame can vary depending on how many people are using the soap and how often they bathe. Our handmade soap does not have chemical hardeners and is made without detergent, which produces a slightly softer bar than the store bought mass-produced soaps. The trade off is worth it! You will have softer healthier skin without the itchy dryness. Please keep your handmade soap up and out of standing water. It is best to keep it in a draining soap dish.
Please store your soap in a cool dry location outside of your bathroom. Bathrooms are often humid because of shower use. This lessens the life of the soap. A closet or linen pantry is a great place to store handmade soap.
Keep in mind that PSS soap is an artistic endeavor. It is produced by one person and poured into small molds. Then every bar is cut and trimmed by hand and then stamped by hand. So you are paying for a small piece of high quality art that has required a lot of the artist's time.
Yes it does, thanks to the addition of a bit of coconut oil. PSS soap is mostly olive oil but coconut oil is added to the recipe to produce those luscious lathering bubbles that everyone loves. I am proud to say that PSS produces soap that lathers beautifully and naturally, without the addition of lathering agents.
No it doesn't. I have found that most of my customers prefer a bar of soap that is made without the addition of animal fat. Most commercially produced soaps contain tallow, lard or other animal fats.
PSS customers love the fact that their skin feels wonderful after using our soap. It is made with a high percentage of olive oil, which produces a highly moisturizing and mild bar of soap without detergents or preservatives that dry out your skin. An additional bonus is that handmade soap is not milled. Commercial soaps are milled, which separates out the naturally occurring glycerin. The glycerin is then sold to the large lotion companies who use it in their lotions. Handmade soap retains it's moisturizing natural glycerin.
PSS soap is made of saponified 100% food grade olive and coconut oils, water, essential oils or cosmetic grade phthalate free fragrance oil and colorants such as oxides, ultramarines and micas. We do not use dyes. Please look at the ingredients for each specific soap to see the exact list of ingredients. All essential oil soaps have the addition of goat's milk. Some soaps have additives such as clays, seeds, loofah, pumice, coffee and other great natural ingredients.
The soaps that are scented with essential oils also contain goat's milk. Please read the ingredients listed at the bottom of each soap page to make sure it fits your needs.
PSS uses either UPS or USPS to ship orders. Since we are a small handmade business we cannot offer you the same pricing or time frames of the big drop shippers. You are charged the commercial rate that we are charged to ship your order. We do not ship internationally. We ship Monday through Friday. Give us at least three business days to get your order into the mail.
**During holiday seasons and for special releases we require a 7 day window to get your order on it's way. However, we hope to get it shipped out sooner.
**Sometimes we need to contact you about your order. Please provide proper contact information. If you do not respond we are not responsible for any issues that arise with your order. We will cancel your order if we do not hear back within a week's time.
**MISSING OR DAMAGED PACKAGES: Unfortunately porch piracy is becoming an all too common issue. If the tracking number shows that your order was delivered you will need to contact the shipper instead of PSS. If your order arrives damaged you will need photos of the damage to file a claim with the shipping company. Please know that it is not financially feasible for PSS to replace an order because it was lost, stolen or damaged in transit. We have no control of your package after it leaves our facility. It is the responsibility of the shipping company to resolve these types of issues. Please understand that since we are a small business it is too costly to replace orders due to loss or damage after it leaves us.
