No, we only use plant-based oils as well as butters for our soaps, such as coconut oil, safflower oil, rice bran oil, olive oil, castor oil, as well as cocoa butter and shea butter. Please check the ingredients list next to each product for exact details.
Unfortunately we are currently too busy with orders from the public to be able to offer wholesale. However, feel free to get in touch should you have a local shop and would like to stock some of our products.
The best you can do to ensure your soap remains nice, solid and long-lasting is to ensure that your soap has a chance to dry between uses. Any soap swimming in water will automatically become softer, so we recommend a soap dish.
Any soap is made using lye otherwise it would not be called ‘soap’. ‘Soap’ relates to ‘saponification’. This is the process during which oils mixed with a lye solution go through to turn into soap. During this process the ingredients are fluid and are poured into a mould. They remain in this mould for about 24 hours during which process saponification happens. After 24 – 48 hours the loaf of soap is cut. At this point the soap is not ready to be used yet as it would sting and burn on your skin. A couple of days later your soap is technically safe to use but is still very soft. Soap is then left to cure for a few weeks up to a few months (depending on ingredients, a pure olive oil soap for example will take a lot longer to cure than many others) to create long-lasting hard bars of soap.
Here at Soakind we have eczema sufferers, and all tolerate the bath bombs well. However, every eczema sufferer is different and might react differently and we can therefore not make any claims. The use of SLS is often cause of irritation – none of our products contain this. Instead we use a naturally-derived surfactants (SLSa) as well as apricot kernel oil/grapeseed oil/sweet almond oil (depending on which bath bomb) as well as Kaolin clay/Cream of Tartar.
We would advise you to check our ingredient lists for any obvious allergens that might cause problems. Please feel free to get in touch to discuss further!
All our bath bombs have been tested for safe use for anyone age 3 and above. There has been no specific testing for children under the age of 3 (this is a hugely costly process, unfortunately). That does not make them unsafe for children under the age of 3 but we cannot recommend their use due to the lack of legal testing.
I am afraid that we are not in a position to make these decisions for you. Please do speak to your health advisor and ask them for advice. We have got ingredients lists next to all our products, you might want to show these to them and check!
All our orders that are being posted are lined with pretty tissue paper, and each bath bomb is packaged individually (with labels) as well. We will always make every effort to make any delivery look pretty!
At checkout you can determine a delivery address different to the billing address, and feel free to add a note that you’d like us to include in the parcel!
We always try and get your orders out as quickly as possible, ideally within 2-3 working days. However, please bear with us, especially during busy periods. Do let us know if you have a very urgent order and we will do everything we can to prioritise if possible!
