HAND-MADE SOAP « Ba Oui ! » Why this project…
I asked myself, how to build wellness around me and flourish in my creativity?
An answer, an obvious fact for me, « Ba Oui »…the soap!
Thus, my project consists of the creation of a hand-made soap workshop and production of natural, authentic and unique soaps for your well-being day after day.
A soap which takes care of you and the planet…
My base philosophy, create by hand a simple product, pure and respectful of the environment. An ethical and ecologically responsible approach to create soaps from quality ingredients and an artisanal method which respects the environment. I use natural products such as clay, natural essential oils, dry flowers, etc.
As well I wish to use local producers. I already work with a producer of organic oil in my region and I continue to search for new contacts.
An authentic method for unique soaps…
To make these hand-made soaps, I chose a traditional method called « cold-processed”. This method produces mild soaps naturally rich in glycerin (moisturizer). The cold-process method is the most simple, most natural and the most economic in energy to create these artisanal soaps rich in natural ingredients with the properties maintained (antioxidant effect, nourishing, emollient, softener, protection).
This method is the alchemy of a knowledgeable mix of ingredients (oil, water and caustic soda) poured into a mould. We can add, for example, natural essential oils, carrot juice or clay to obtain colored and perfumed soaps which invites voyages of imagination and dreams.
No cooking, no heating, only waiting a minimum of 24 hours to obtain a brick of soap ready to be removed from the mould. Then it is hand cut to make unique pieces.
The cold-process method is a slow reaction and to finalize the soaps it is necessary to let them dry for 4 to 6 weeks. This allows the soap to harden and acquire their characteristics (suds, touch, creamy, longevity…). Then the cold-process is finished and only excess water is evaporated to obtain super soaps ready to take care of your skin.
