Welcome to the Artisan Soap Shop!
A few weeks ago, we began to offer a variety of handcrafted soap bars made with sea salt. If you're wondering why, you're in the right place. Read on to learn more about the benefits of sea salt soap and why you might want to consider trying one of our handcrafted sea salt soap bars (say that five times fast!).
Salt has been used in soap making for centuries, dating back to ancient civilizations in Egypt and Rome. In fact, the word "soap" is derived from the Roman word "sapo," which was a type of soap made from animal fat and ash. Salt was often added to soap to help harden it, as well as to enhance its cleaning power. Today, soap makers continue to use salt in their products, including sea salt, which is known for its unique mineral content and therapeutic benefits.
But why is salt added to soap today? Here are a few reasons:
Our sea salt soaps are made with a variety of oils including Coconut Oil, Canola Oil, Soybean Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Olive Pomace Oil, and Sunflower Oil. But it's the sea salt that sets these soaps apart. Sea salt is a unique type of salt that is harvested from the ocean. It is rich in minerals such as magnesium, calcium, and potassium, which can be beneficial for the skin.
Imagine taking a walk along the beach and feeling the ocean spray on your face. The saltwater helps to cleanse and refresh your skin, and the same is true for soap made with sea salt. When you use one of our sea salt soap bars, you're not only cleansing your skin, but you're also giving it a little extra nourishment thanks to the minerals in the sea salt.
But the benefits of sea salt soap don't stop there. Using a soap bar made with sea salt can also provide therapeutic benefits. The scent of our sea salt soaps, which come in a variety of fragrances, can be calming and relaxing, and using one of our sea salt soap bars could just be what you need to help transport you to the beach, even if you're nowhere near it.
So next time you're in the market for a new soap bar, consider one of our handcrafted sea salt soap bars, and check back often since we are still adding new sea salt soap bars each week. Your skin (and your senses) will thank you. Give one a try and experience the benefits for yourself!
