Traditional Methods

At The Savvy Soaperie we create pure natural soap with carefully selected wholesome, organic, naturally nourishing, responsibly sourced, sustainable, 100% natural plant oils, rich organic plant butters, pure essential oils, organic herbs, seeds, fruits, vegetables and flowers.

Once we have carefully selected our ingredients, we create our handmade skin-loving luxurious soaps by using the traditional technique of soapmaking called the Cold Process Method. We have chosen this method because it is the best way to protect the valuable properties and health benefits of the plant oils and other organic ingredients used to make our soap.

What this means is that:

  • We do not boil the natural oils.
  • We do not separate the glycerin produced during the saponification process.
  • Because we do not heat any oils or ingredients with using the traditional Cold Process Method, our soap retains all the natural glycerin which is beneficial to the skin (glycerin is the good stuff and is often taken out of commercial soap and sold to the cosmetic industry).
  • Our soap contains all the natural properties and health benefits of the raw natural oils such as olive oil and raw shea butter.
  • The saponification process is slow and the soap needs to be aged for 8 weeks in a special room with natural ventilation.
  • Our soap is biodegradable.
  • Our soap is kind to our skin and to our planet.
  • We have not wasted the nutrients in our carefully selected natural organic ingredients. That’s correct …we have not boiled the daylight out of them!

Saponification requires a lot more time in the Cold Process Method of soapmaking than in the “hot process” method. That is one of the reasons why the “traditional cold process method” IS NOT being used by large corporations where huge amounts of soap need to be produced to supply global markets.

In summary, The Savvy Soaperie uses the best ingredients that nature has to offer and we preserve the nutrients in our ingredients by using the Cold Process Method of soapmaking so that we can make the best naturally nourishing soap on the planet.

We are also very proud of the fact that we stand among the rare soapmakers who DO NOT use synthetic colors, fragrances, and additives. Our handmade soaps are 100% natural.
