Cold process soap is made by combining oils and lye. This causes a natural chemical reaction called saponification. This produces glycerol and a fatty acid salt which is the creation of "Soap".
Once our soap is created it is poured in our beautifully handcrafted moulds. This is where it will then sit for 24-48 hours before being unmoulded.
After the Soap had been unmoulded and cut it then has to sit and wait patiently to cure for 4-6 weeks.
This curing time allows the bars of soap to breathe and for excess water to evaporate. Producing a lovely, long lasting hard bar of Soap.
Matilda wanted to create a beautiful and luxurious soap that was unique.
“I want to bring back the bar of soap. Using a traditional soap bar is kind and gentle for your skin. Our soap is free from harsh chemicals, parabens or foaming agents. Using a bar of soap helps reduce plastic waste. Our packaging is 100% recyclable and environmentally friendly. I have re-created the good old-fashioned soap bar bringing it into the twenty-first century with vibrant colour, imagination and pizzazz."
Matilda wants to introduce everyone to the world of cold process soap where the colours and design "pop".
Matilda has a passion for making and designing new soaps and is continuously working on her Handcrafted Artisan Soap Range. Matilda will be bringing new soap creations to you that she hopes will inspire and spark your imagination.
