Natural soap production from Carinthia, Austria 
using traditional recipes

Our handmade plant-oil soaps are only made from high-quality plant oils and plant-fats. Glycerin, which is pleasant for the skin, remains in the soap where it acts as moisturizer and protects the skin from drying out. In industrially produced soaps glycerin will be withdrawn and instead other chemical additives are mixed into the soap.
Our natural soap is free from synthetic foaming agents, preservatives or other chemical additives. Therefore, the soap is much gentler to the skin than industrially produced soaps. In addition, our final natural soap product includes a proportion of free, unsaponified oils, which generate a moisturizing effect. As perfumes we mainly use essential oils or perfume oils, which are specially approved oils for soap boiling. 

Each soap bar is handmade and unique, therefore small deviations in shape and colour are possible. Each bar matures at least 4-6 weeks before it is sold.
