Featured ingredients in each bar of  Calm Lavender Handmade Natural Soap:

Alō Calm Essential Oil Blend is based on lavender essential oil (Botanical Name: Lavandula officinalis). Originating from the Latin lavare, meaning “to wash”, lavender has historically been used in baths to help purify the body and spirit. Many people have a fond association with lavender for its fragrance which creates a stimulating and calming experience when used in soaps, shampoos, and body products. All-natural colorants are infused into the base oils for each batch, creating a beautiful bar free from synthetic cosmetic colorants. This lavender bar features madder root and activated charcoal.

  • Activated charcoal aids in providing a deep cleanse and gives your skin a natural glow while helping to absorb excess oils.
  • Aloe Vera is used in every Alō Signature bar. It provides a soothing feel to each and every bar of handmade soap. It’s a wonderful addition to soothe and hydrate sensitive and irritated skins.
  • Olive Oil creates a very gentle soap with a mild lather.
  • Coconut Oil is added to help boost lather as well as provide superior cleansing.
  • Shea Butter adds soothing nourishment and a creamy shave-able lather to the soap’s profile.

    I just wanted to let you know that I am loving your products – so much so, in fact, that I purchased several extra soaps in my last order with the plan of giving them away as thank you gifts on a recent trip. In addition to two intended recipients, my husband and I enjoyed “gifting” 5 more soaps to ladies who were especially kind – including several who worked at the hotel where we were staying.

    EVERYONE thanked us more than once – meaning each time we passed in the hotel lobby, etc. – and they all raved about them! Not only were they more affordable than Starbucks cards, but even more importantly, they were unique, showed a little more thought, and they are going to last a long time!

    Thank you, Kandra, for your superior products, and your careful and timely packaging. I look forward to ordering from you again!

Handmade Soap

The short answer is 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.

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 products are made with all natural ingredients, including organic oils, nut butters, essential oils, and botanicals. Natural does not always mean safe, and we encourage you to educate yourself on the power of natural ingredients. If you are allergic to any ingredient in a product, you should not use that product.

  • You can find a complete list of ingredients on the product page of our website for each of our products.
  • If you have a Shea Butter allergy, you can shop shea free products here.
  • The Pure signature blend line features products crafted for individuals with sensitive skin and for those who seek a natural product free from added fragrances.

Alo Goods is not responsible for any reaction to any ingredient. All ingredients are clearly listed on each product page of our website as well as on the ingredients tag included with each purchase. People with sensitivities to any listed ingredient should not use the product. If you have severe anaphylactic-type reactions to ANY of the ingredients we use, please do not buy any of our products. Our workspace is kept meticulously clean and, while all soaps are cured in separate containers, we cannot guarantee that one soap did not touch another.

We do not offer free samples, but we do offer Travel & Trial Sizes for all of our Signature soaps, Shampoo Bars, Tooth Suds, and Body Butter. Each bar is sized to allow you to sample the soaps and find your favorite before you purchase a full-sized bar.

At this time we do not offer samples of our conditioner bars. Why? Our conditioner bars are very concentrated making a sample size too small to effectively use and test on your locks as a daily conditioner.

Our travel and trial sizes are mini-versions of our full-size products. They are intended to allow you to try before you buy, and to be eco-friendly travel companions! Here are a few things you should know about them:

  • Travel and trial size soaps are end cuts from our full batches. They will vary in size (no less than 1/2 oz and most are closer to 1oz).
  • The Body Butter mini-tins are pocket-sized and hold 1/2 oz of product.
  • Body soap will last 1-2 week in the shower.
  • Facial soap will last 2-3 weeks if kept out of the showers.
  • Body Butters will last 1-2 weeks (yes, a little does goes a long way!)
  • Tooth Suds will last 2-3 weeks brushing 2x per day for one person.
