This product was recommended by Matt Fitzgerald from Boot Bananas

Boot Bananas are saving the world from overripe footwear.

Natural Soap Kit for Beginners – Energizing Orange

This product was recommended by Anne-Marie from Bramble Berry

One of the many things to love about handmade soap is that it can be entirely biodegradable. Soap is made with oils, water, and sodium hydroxide. While the home crafter can include additives that aren’t biodegradable, it’s not at all necessary. For example, our Natural Soap Kit for Beginners uses natural colorant and natural essential oils for fragrance. Even the sodium lactate used to help the soap harden is biodegradable. Ensuring that our regular grooming products are safe for the environment is important. The water that washes down our household drains is going back into natural waterways at some point. Making sure that your soap is biodegradable is a fantastic way to make sure that you’re doing as little damage to the environment as possible. The Natural Soap Kit for Beginners retails for $87.99 and makes 10-12 4 ounce bars of soap. Handmade natural soap costs $7.00 on the low end, typically, and can cost as much as $15 per bar. This kit comes with a sturdy soap mold that you can use over and over, so making future batches of soap will be cheaper than this first investment. The kit also comes with everything you need to make your first batch of natural handmade soap, including an easy to follow instructions sheet to guide you.
