What is soap?

How does soap clean?

How are handcrafted soaps different from commercial soaps?

Q: How big are your soaps?

A: Each bar is 3” wide and just over 1” deep, weighing 4 ounces or more. As with all handcrafted soaps, there may be some variation in color and slight irregularities in shape. This is a result of being cut and trimmed by human hands rather than by a machine.

Q: My soap is sweating!

A: If you find that your soap “sweats” when left out, don’t be alarmed. It’s simply the natural glycerin in the soap attracting moisture from the air.

Q: Why do the Ss on the logo have little "horns"?

A:  Actually, they're wings.  The Ss from our logo are an adaptation of the livestock brand from the owner's family ranch in Idaho, where she grew up.  It's called the Sylte Ranch Flying S.

Q:  What is the best way to store a wet bar in my soap tin?

A:  A wet bar should be stored in the tin with the lid side down.  This is because a wet bar will stick to the tin, and it's much easier to remove from the lid than from the deeper part of the container.

Q:  What does RSPO certified mean?

A:  It stands for Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil and is a certification given to palm oil producers who grow and harvest palm oil under the environmental guidelines of the organization.  Palm oil production is a major environmental issue in SE Asia, in particular.

Q:  Do you use any ingredients from the SLS family, proplyene glycol, parabens, parrafin and its derivatives etc?

A:  No, we do not use any petroleum based or synthetic ingredients in our soaps at all.
