Love from SB handcrafted soap
(Scroll down to see soaps.)
Donna’s skin care and soap making are an extension of her creative process, combining fine cuisine, chemistry and art. She uses the cold process method for her soap (from scratch), and the soap has to cure for 4-6 weeks… unlike melt and pour. Creating all her own recipes, she makes them in small batches and enjoys creating soap with specific Santa Barbara locations in mind.
She scents many of her soaps with with essential oils combining top, middle and base notes of essential oils to help the soap hold its scent longer. For others she uses fragrances (scents that can’t be created through essential oils like florals and exotic blends). She also uses organic ingredients whenever possible along with natural colorants and botanicals.
She makes her products with luxurious butters and oils like mango butter, macadamia nut oil, shea butter, squalane oil, rosehips, jojoba and many more).… all ingredients are listed. With her skin care products, a little goes a long way. You only need as much as will give you a nice, light sheen on your skin.
Note: Be sure not to leave soap in shower stream or sitting in water, or it will dissolve all those wonderful ingredients far too quickly. Use caution to avoid slipping in the tub or shower. In addition, be sure to check ingredients for allergies.
