FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
*** ALL ABOUT OUR SOAP ***
- ARE YOUR SOAPS ALL NATURAL?
Yes, they are!
- IS THERE ANYTHING SPECIAL I NEED TO DO WITH MY SOAP?
Yes. You don't want it, or any handmade soap, to sit under a stream of water or in a puddle of water. You want to place it somewhere it can dry between uses AND on something that won't allow water to sit under it.
- WHY DOESN'T MY BAR OF SOAP LOOK EXCACTLY LIKE THE PHOTO DOES?
Our soaps are made by hand, in small batches using natural essential oils, clays and other ingredients.
They are not mass produced and will always have some type of variance from the website photos.
- I JUST RECEIVED MY ORDER OF MULTIPLE BARS OF SOAP FROM YOU, BUT THEY DON'T FEEL LIKE THEY WEIGH THE SAME AMOUNT. CAN YOU TELL ME WHY?
As natural soap sits or "cures" it loses water weight. This produces a harder bar of soap, which
lasts longer in the shower then a freshly made bar. Because we make our soap in small batches, you may
receive bars from newer and/or older batches in which more or less of the water has "evaporated".
Our soaps are made by a method called "cold process", and we cure every batch of soap for a minimum
of 4 weeks before offering it for sale, which assures that you are getting a very nice, quality, hard bar of
- WHAT IS THE WHITE STUFF ON TOP OF MY SOAP?
The "white stuff" is called soda ash, otherwise known as sodium carbonate. In soap, it is a naturally
occuring "side effect". Other companies or soap makers often take extra steps to remove the ash,
like steaming it off, washing it off by hand, or even spraying alcohol on top of the soap! At Global Soaps
we love to see that soda ash, and we hope that you will too! It washes off the bar easily as soon as you
use your soap for the first time :)
*** ALL ABOUT THE GOATS ***
- DO YOU OWN YOUR OWN GOATS?
Yes, we happily do!
- HOW MANY GOATS DO YOU HAVE?
Right now we have a herd of 14, but that changes often - especially in the spring when a bunch of adorable goat kids are born!
