FAQs

Custom Bulk Soap

“Base Oils” are the natural oils we use when creating your soap (olive oil, sunflower, and coconut oil). This is the same recipe used for our Pure soap, creating soap that is cleansing yet gentle on the skin. Suitable for most skin types (including sensitive skins and baby when unscented and uncolored) they can be enhanced with natural color and essential oils.

If you would like a custom formula, we provide options for you to select additives for your custom soaps (like shea butter!)

If you are allergic to coconut oil, lets us know that too! We can discuss options for formulating without coconut oil.

  • Custom soap orders ship in 2-3 weeks.
  • Soaps will be safe to use 4-6 weeks after made-on-date. The made-on-date will be included in your order details when your soaps arrive.

Our base recipe has a natural “soapy” aroma, which you can choose to enhance with essential oils. Options include our signature blends, as well as unique essential oil combinations. We keep a wide selection of essential oils in stock with the most popular listed as options when you order.

Please note that some essential oils are too rare and/or precious to use in soap (Rose, Ylang Ylang, Frankincense, to name a few). And others (such as lemon) do not retain their aroma in the final product. But, there are other ways of scenting soap, or combining other essential oils to create a similar aroma.

If you would like a custom blend or an oil not listed, select “other” and let us know what you’re looking for.

We use a blend of coconut and olive oils for our custom soap bars, creating a natural off-white/cream base color which can be enhanced with natural colorants. Alō soaps are created with 100% all-natural additives, and the range of color each time you use a natural colorant is part of the beauty of all-natural soaps. Exact colors cannot be guaranteed. Colors will vary between batches.

  • Black: activated charcoal provides a black that will range from a dark gray to a smokey black.
  • Natural to Brown: a rich brown achieved by the use of cocoa powder in the soap batter while lighter naturals are obtained by the batter alone through using additives such as coffee or beer.
  • Green: a natural green with the addition of botanicals and herbs such as spirulina powder or alfalfa infusions. Note: greens tend to fade when exposed to light and soaps should be stored away from light.
  • Yellows to Orange: a sunny yellow to bright vibrant orange can be created by an infusion of annatto seeds, paprika, or carrots.
  • Purple: a lovely purple, but not a bright shocking purple is achieved by the addition of alkanet infused oils.
  • Pink:  can range from a faint pink to deep rose pink. Achieved with madder root, clays, and other botanicals.
  • Blue: we use natural blue indigo powder to achieve a variety of blues.

Botanical Soap Colorant Examples

Color disclaimer: we use all-natural botanicals to color our soaps. Pictures provided are approximations of color in the final batch. Colors can vary in each bar, each batch, and with each use of colorant.

Custom bulk soap orders ship naked (no additional packaging). If you would like to have your soaps packaged in our cotton bags, or add custom labels for gifts, weddings, or baby showers. Please contact us for a custom quote. Note: Beldi orders are packaged in mason jars.

Our mini-guest soaps have options to ship naked or with customized labels for your event.

Custom soap orders are added to our production schedule within 1-2 weeks of your order date. Once poured, your soaps will be tended to on our cure racks for 1-2 weeks until they are suitable for travel.

Each batch is handcrafted and is not created from a pre-made base. Your custom soaps will be suitable for use 4 weeks from the poured on date, and will perform optimally if used 6 or more weeks from the poured on date.

All custom orders ship free via USPS priority mail and will ship in sustainable materials.

Once your order is placed you will recieve the following order notifications:

  • We’ll send you a quick note to confirm your order and request any clarification (if needed).
  • Once poured and cut, we will send you a picture of your soaps. Mark this date, as your soaps will be safe to use 4 weeks later!
  • Once your order ships, you will receive a standard order shipment email, along with tracking number.

If you have any questions along the way, we’ll be here to answer them!

Handmade Soap

Yes! After washing or brushing your teeth, any bacterium that was present on either the soap or your hands/teeth is washed down the drain.

Yes!

When you use a bar of soap (or Tooth Suds) the oil attracting end of the soap molecule picks up the grease and oils on your skin. When you rinse, the water-attracting end of the soap molecule follows the water, rinsing the soap and any impurities down the drain when you wash it off (or spit it out). 

After washing or brushing your teeth, any bacterium that was present on either the soap or your hands/teeth is washed down the drain.

Here’s more information about why soap isn’t dirty and perfectly hygienic and sanitary.

Soap ages, like a fine wine, but we recommend that you use your soap within one year of purchase. When a bar of our soap ages:

  • the aroma from essential oils will fade (after about 3-months)
  • the plant-based colors may fade (some within 6-months, other after a few years)
  • the lather will become creamier and thicker
  • the soap will become milder

The scent and color changes on our sample bars will be more noticable and occur sooner than the full sized bars. This is due to an increased percentage of the surface area being exposed to air.

My favorite bar of soap is the first bar I ever made. My daughters and I spent months researching and collecting tools and materials with my husband. Our first soap then took us a full day to mix by hand. I’ll cherish those memories for the rest of my life. I still have a bar from that first batch and I use is once a year on my daughter’s birthday.

Kandra, Owner and Soap Maker, Alō Goods

Short Answer: It depends on how often it’s used, and if it’s kept dry between uses.

When used at the sink for handwashing, a bar of our handmade soap will last 4-6 weeks or more. This assumes that the bar will placed on a soap dish that allows the water to drain away from the soap, giving the soap a chance to dry out between uses. You can read more on extening the life of your soap here.

When used in the shower, a bar of soap will typically last between 3-5 weeks. This assumes that the bar is exposed to water longer than at the sink, and then multiple people are using the same bar to wash head to toe.

Compared to commercial “soaps”, natural soaps are normally softer as they retain their natural glycerin (commercial soap production removes the glycerine to sell as a separate product). Our soaps are also free from artificial hardening chemicals, synthetic waxes or free alkali.

No, there is no lye in our soap. However, all true soap is made through the saponification of oils with lye—either sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide. Once saponified none of the lye remains, and the oils are turned into soap. You can read more how soap is made, cured, and cared for in these articles:

Alō products are made in a private kitchen, with clean and sterile equipment and quality ingredients. In fact, many of the ingredients are food grade…but please don’t eat your soap or body butter!

Our soaps are packaged in organic cotton bags. You can reuse them as tea bags (please wash them first though!), or soap sacks. To use as a soap sack, place the small ends of soap bars into the sack until you have a small stash. Then, wash with the soap sack as a washcloth. They also make great garden soap sacks (just hang from the spigot).

Our Mouthwash Crystals are packaged in kraft eco pouches, lined with PLA (Polylactic Acid), a bioplastic material made from renewable resources such as corn and sugar with an ALOX (Aluminium Oxide) Coating. ALOX is compostable and helps keep the crystals dry.

Our Tooth Suds and other boxes are made from 100% recycled content, are 100% recyclable and compostable.

Conditioner bars, facial powders, and travel bars are packaged in glassine bags. Glassine is a smooth and glossy paper that’s made air, water, and grease resistant through a process called supercalendering.  They are not waxed or chemically-finished during manufacturing and are fully recyclable, compostable, and biodegradable.

Our hair tea is packaged in biodegradable cello bags made from wood cellulose fibers sourced with sustainable forestry principles, certified biodegradable, compostable, and made carbon zero. Each bag meets ASTM D6400, EN13432 standards for CA and other states.

Our labels are printed on recycled label stock.

Herbal salves are packaged in a reusable and recyclable metal tins.

We ship with sustainable materials too!

  • Smaller orders are shipped in sustainable paper padded envelopes and boxes (made from recycled materials, recyclable & naturally biodegradable). If more suitable, your package might arrive in one of our reusable, recycled, and recyclable plastic pouches too.
  • Larger orders ship in USPS flat rate packages that meet Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) or Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification standards. And, they are fully recyclable (including the padded shipping mailers which are made from #4 recyclable plastic).
