What is it you ask? Hunter’s need to remove and mask their human scent so they won’t be detected. An avid Hunter told me that he would rub dirt all over his body to mask his human scent. He approached me requesting a soap that would do the same, so DIRT FRAGRANCED HUNTERS SOAP was born.

Hunter’s Soap is specifically designed to remove the human scent. Made with skin loving oils that are gentle enough for skin and hair. Coffee grounds were added for gentle exfoliation. For the Hunter, the gardener, or for the person that loves the fresh smell of dirt, this soap is for you.

Organic soaps VERSUS commercial store- bought soaps. Let’s learn together.

Have you ever wondered, what is the real difference between organic soap and store bought soap? Why is using organic soaps better for your family? Why use organic soap instead of commercial soaps?

Organic Soaps because of its gentle properties may help to aid skin conditions like eczema, acne, psoriasis and even sunburn. Organic soap has the added benefit of being made from ingredients that are produced with organic farming practices. These are farms that don't use pesticides or synthetic fertilizers.

How can you know how your soap is made?

A good way to know what is in your soap is to understand where and how the soap is made, what ingredients are used and what process is used to make them.

Soap-Making Process

Guilty Pleasures Organic Soaps are made in small batches to ensure a fresh product. Our soaps are made using the hot or cold process method. Both of these methods use the best raw materials, natural mined colorants, and essential oils to make natural and safe soap. After the soaps are put in molds, they are removed and placed in racks to cure for 4 to 6 weeks. This results in a gentle, long-lasting, harder bar of soap.

Unlike store bought soaps, GPOS doesn’t use irritants, harmful chemicals or carcinogens. If fragrances are used, these are phthalate free, responsibly sourced and cruelty free.

Commercial soap may include the following:

Parabens: a chemical preservative used to extend the shelf life of soap

Phthalates: An additive (known to be linked to cancer)

Petrochemicals: petroleum made chemicals considered unsafe for humans

Synthetic Perfume: synthetic ingredients that may aggravate skin conditions.

Artificial Color: Synthetic color.

Organic soap is actually good for the skin, and you will feel the difference.

Using natural organic ingredients to make soaps allows the buyer, YOU, with a safer, harder, better quality bar of soap. Once you try Guilty Pleasures Organic Soaps, nothing else will do.

Have you ever heard of beer soap? You have not? Well, let me tell you about it. You may be asking, why use beer in soap? Beer contains sugar which gives the soap a stable and fluffy lather. It is also known that beer can soothe irritation on the skin. The brewer's yeast acts as an antibacterial agent that also offers moisturizing benefits to your skin. Let’s first find out how to make a bar of soap using beer. To make soap, we need oils, distilled water, and sodium hydroxide. When making beer soap, we substitute the distilled water for beer. However, there is more to making beer soap! You first have to prepare the beer. In order to add beer to your soap recipe, you need to boil it to remove the alcohol and carbonation. This will ensure the beer will not react and cause the dreaded volcano!

OK. What’s next? Once the beer has been boiled and all carbonation and alcohol has evaporated, it is time to make your soap. That’s it!

So next time you hear about beer soap, you know how it is made and why everyone loves it. Try one today!! Guilty Pleasures Organic Soaps offer several soaps made with beer. Beer soap makes an awesome and unique gift for beer lovers.

I have used several beers, but my favorite is still the beers found at Dirtbag Ales Farmers Market.
