Frequently asked Questions
Q: Do you manufacture your products yourself?
A: Yes, we combine our passion and know-how for high-quality raw materials and create unique fragrance and product compositions, which we process into high-quality care products from head to toe, for skin and hair.
For 15 years now, we have been working in our workshop in Schöneberg on our range of caring products with high-quality natural raw materials.
Q: Aren't soaps made of bones?
A: As in the past, soaps are still produced today partly from animal fats (from bones and beef tallow).
However, our products are manufactured almost entirely from vegetable raw materials. For soap production, however, we need a lye consisting of sodium hydroxide and water. We do not process any animal raw materials, except honey and propolis from organic farming.
Honey and propolis can be found in our honey-cinnamon and honeymoon soap.
Our honey baths are made of organic honey.
Q: How are the soaps produced?
A: We produce our soaps according to the old traditional so-called "cold stirred process". The fats and oils are mixed at temperatures below 40°C.
In our case we process purely vegetable cold pressed fats and oils from biological cultivation, such as coconut fat, shea butter, olive, jojoba, avocado and wheat germ oil.
The special feature of the cold stirred process is that the ingredients of the oils retain their naturally caring properties and thus produce a very high-quality soap.
Saponification begins with the addition of caustic soda, which is only mixed with the fats after it has cooled down to below 40 °C. The result is a creamy, somewhat viscous mass.
Then the fragrances (100% natural essential oils), herbs or flowers are added and the mass is poured into a mould.
After about 24 hours you can cut the soap or take it out of the mould. The soap must then be stored for approx. 4 - 6 weeks. During this time the water evaporates, the soap becomes hard and you can use it for washing.
We have selected the composition of the vegetable oils according to their care and washing properties, so that our soaps are beautifully foamy and creamy.
Q: What makes the soaps so special?
A: our soaps are hand made in a cold stirred process
they contain high-quality cold-pressed oils, fats and naturally pure essential oils, mainly from controlled organic cultivation it contains neither artificial fragrances or dyes, nor synthetic foams they are free of PEGs the fragrances are unique creations of our perfumer the soaps are unique because the composition of the ingredients is unique our soaps are richly greased with high-quality cold-pressed fats, they do not dry out the skin and give it the moisture it needs it is not necessary to use a cream after washing the soaps can be used for washing skin and hair
Q: What is the difference between shaving soap and normal soap?
A: Our soaps all have a nice foam. In soap production, however, foam formation can be influenced by the composition of the oils. That is why we have put the fats of the shaving soaps together so that the soaps form a little more foam.
