Who doesn’t love handmade things?
Everyone knows that anything handmade was made with attention to detail and care, and it was more often than not made by an artisan who is passionate about their craft.
That’s why when you receive a handmade gift, you know that some thought was put into not only the giving of it but in the making of it.
There are many artisans online offering their wares and it makes sense to support these small businesses, because they are our neighbors, our friends and family, the farmers and the hardworking people who make this country great! Now I don’t want to get all political on you, I’m just sayin that supporting small business will help our communities in so many ways.
Natural ingredients, better for your skin
When you choose to purchase a handmade bath and body product, you should ask about its ingredients and how it can benefit your skin. Keep in mind that soap stays on your skin for a short amount of time, so the properties may only have a few minutes to be absorbed into the skin. Soap is made from oils and lye (no, you can’t have soap without lye but I’ll explain in a minute why you shouldn’t be concerned) Then it’s blended together and the combined chemical properties become soap. Once the saponification process is complete, the lye and oil become soap and lye is no longer a danger to your skin. However, this is not to say that you can’t have an excess amount of lye in your soap. If that happens, it won’t burn your skin but it will definitely be very drying and could cause irritation. Most soap makers test the PH in their soap before putting it out for sale. If your soap does cause irritation, discontinue use and contact the seller for a refund. You shouldn’t have a problem getting your money back if the seller is an ethical one.
