Alō Goods handmade soaps are handcrafted with my custom recipes—formulated with natural oils, exfoliants, colors, and aromas. Whether you are looking for a skin soap bar for everyday cleansing or something for an extra special bath-time treat, you’re sure to find the perfect hand soap, body soap bar, or shampoo bar to nourish your mind, body, and spirit.
Soap making became a much-loved event in my home after we first learned the craft from a home-school project with our children. That was years ago, and our original recipes have long since been replaced with custom blends of oils, clay, herbs, and essential oils that I hand-craft in my home.
Formulating and making natural soaps, from base oils used to achieve different lathers to the botanicals used to achieve various designs, is a spiritually relaxing process for me. The challenge to accomplish intricate designs with all natural colorants becomes an exercise in commitment and meditation, which I am pleased to be able to share with you.
While other soapmakers may choose to use chemical based and man-made additives such as “mineral pigments” and “fragrance oils”, I am committed to producing skin soaps with only 100% natural ingredients originating from mother earth.
Each bar is handmade by me, in my home. All of my recipes are crafted with high-quality base oils like olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter, and mango butter; scented with the natural aromas of herbs, base oils, natural essential oils, (or even beer!), and colored with natural botanicals and clays.
If you don’t see your perfect bar in the shop, just contact me to discuss making a custom handmade soap. We can craft a custom bar blended with your specific needs in mind. Whether it’s a bulk order of a limited edition soap or a completely custom design I look forward to creating your perfect bar of soap.
