We have a small family farm in Ridge Spring, SC, located near the Georgia /South Carolina border. After discovering that the “lactose intolerant “ members of our family could drink goat milk, we added Nubian dairy goats to our place. We fell in love with the sweet kids, whose long floppy ears swing from side to side when they run! One girl in particular, Mary, endeared herself to me with her kind attitude and heart-shaped markings on her face and head. Although she’s not the queen of our goat herd, she has won my heart, and is the inspiration for our logo and stamp.
Goat Milk was steady in supply, and we could only drink so much, and make so much into cheese. I had tried goat milk soap once, and wanted to use the surplus milk not throw it away, so I made my first batch of cold process soap. I was hooked on making handmade soap! It didn’t take long for me to expand from Plain bar soap to more complicated soaps. I started giving it to family as gifts, then to friends, and their requests for more kept coming in! After many requests, and a little urging, Labellepalms Soaps became an online store. I’ve worked in Customer Service my entire life, and want to continue to have my soap customers feel like they aren’t just a number or a “sale”- because they’re not! I know this is a business but it’s personal. I mean, come on, when you’re using soap you’re going from dirty nasty “ugh” to fresh smelling good feeling clean, right?! That is pretty personal. So if you buy soap from me, feel free to drop a note, ask a question, leave feedback, etc. I will respond.
Labellepalms Soaps are handmade in small batches using the cold process method. What does that mean? It means each batch (making) of soap will make about twenty bars, that my two hands are making it (not a machine), and the soap will have to sit for four to six weeks to cure before being used. It is very soft when first mixed, and the curing gives it time to dry out. In order to make soap, oils are mixed with liquid that has lye (Sodium Hydroxide) dissolved in it. In this case, the liquid is goat milk from our goats. After much blending the dissolved lye saponifies the oils and fresh soap is in the bowl. The raw soap is poured into a mold where it rests before being cut and stamped, then put aside to cure.
We use olive oil, unrefined organic coconut oil, and castor oil in every batch of soap. Some batches have sweet almond oil, rice bran oil, Argan oil, cocoa butter, or Shea butter also. In order to obtain a color in the soap, we use natural ingredients like clay, plant materials, or animal products (bee pollen powder for example). Micas, activated charcoal, and titanium dioxide are also used. The fragrance oils that we use come from a reliable source to ensure quality, and are used in moderation. Skin allergies can happen even after taking precautions to avoid reactions, so it is advisable to test a small area before extensive use. If a reaction occurs discontinue use and consult medical assistance. We assume no liabilities in any case, and offer no return policy. If Soap gets in your eyes rinse with copious amounts of water and seek medical advise.
Labellepalms Soaps are produced with great attention to detail, and much concern. We hope you enjoy using our soap as much as we do, and invite you to visit our Facebook page.
