After much experimenting and testing on our friends and family, we have a companion product to our pottery: Clay soaps. We’re really happy with the results and they have been well received.
We’ll be starting a second Etsy store soon featuring soap and soap dishes, and they will also be available in a soon-to-be-open shop in Waukesha, and at Milwaukee Irish Fest. Here’s the scoop…
Why clay soap?
Squeaky clean feeling
Mild and non-drying
Great for all skin types
We are potters, and work with our hands
in clay every day. Lots of hand washing and
exposure to pottery clay led to very dry skin,
which everyday hand soap did not help.
We decided to start making our own
high-quality soap, and started researching
Unlike pottery clay, Kaolin is a fine, white
clay that has been used in skin care and
cosmetic products since ancient times,
and is widely recognized as beneficial to
both dry and oily skin types – with properties
that soothe, detoxify and nourish the skin.
As potters, it was an obvious choice for us
to add clay to our soaps, so we tried it.
We loved the results, and hope you do too!
Our soap base is either clear glycerin or
white goat milk glycerin, made with only
high quality natural ingredients. The glycerin
base makes for a long-lasting bar of soap
that doesn’t melt away after just a few uses. The soaps make great lather for a squeaky
clean feeling, and also help to soften and protect the skin. We offer our soaps in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, colors and fragrances.
