Know our values

How do we make our handmade soaps?

At Balsámica Cosmética Natural® we make handmade soaps using the cold process saponification technique, where oils, fats, butters, soda, distilled water, infusions, hydrolats and other ingredients are mixed using a cold process, that is to say, without cooking or high temperatures, thus maintaining all the properties of the ingredients. In this way we can create incredible synergies for every skin type.

How do we pigment our handmade soaps?

We do not use synthetic chemical dyes. We use cosmetic grade minerals such as mica and natural pigments such as pure cocoa, turmeric, and a variety of plant pigments and clays.

Why are natural handmade soaps better than industrial soaps?

Because in addition to preserving all the properties of the ingredients, the cold process produces and preserves the natural glycerine, thus providing moisturising and nourishing properties, retaining the skin’s natural moisture. In an industrial bar, the glycerine is removed by heat and sold separately, which is why industrial bars, most of the time, dry out the skin.

TIP

For a longer shelf life we recommend storing handmade soaps in soap dishes with a grid to avoid water accumulation, which would cause the soap to become soft and last less time.

What are the advantages of using our soaps?

Most liquid soaps and gels contain components that are not only toxic and aggressive for the skin, but also for the environment. Our handmade soaps are made from natural oils and butters such as extra virgin olive, coconut, castor, shea, soya, cocoa butter among others, and enriched with essential oils that have a positive and specific effect on the skin. We know that more than nine million tons of plastic reach the ocean every year. Solid soap eliminates the need for plastic bottles as it has sustainable packaging, which makes it an ideal ecofriendly alternative. Industrial soaps and detergents use chemical compounds, such as surfactants and petrolatum, which take years to completely disintegrate and are therefore highly polluting to water, whereas natural soap residues degrade in just a few hours, making them biodegradable. Ideal for travel. Forget about flight bans and even better forget about accidental spills in your suitcase. Longer lasting. Liquid soaps and shower gels are mostly made of water. On average our solid soap lasts up to 3 times longer than its equivalent weight in liquid soap or shower gel. We hope that after this info you will switch to solid cosmetics and try our natural handmade soaps. They are amazing!
