FAQ | Confident Girls
Why choose handmade soap?
Handmade soap is created without the harsh chemical additives that are found elsewhere on the market. Commercial soap often includes preservatives, sulfates, and a variety of harsh detergents that can damage the skin.
What is handmade soap?
Handmade soap will generally contain a combination of distilled water, lye (sodium hydroxide), oils and butters. When the lye solution is combined with the oils and butters, it creates a chemical reaction known as "saponification." The result of saponification is soap. There is no lye in fully saponified soap. Real soap can only be made through the use of lye.
Do you test on animals?
We never test on animals, just on friends and family!
How long should my soap last?
Well the short answer is, "it depends." If properly stored and drained, it could last for a couple of weeks. It should be stored on a well-ventilated soap dish. The soap, prior to use, will last forever. The surface scent may fade, but once it hits the water the fragrance will return. The longer the soap sits, the gentler and milder it becomes.
