Skin Deep Homemade Soap Review

I got the chance to meet the owner/maker of this wonderful soap called Skin Deep back around the end of October in our annual Moonshine Festival in Dawsonville, Georgia. I had walked up to her booth and was amazed at how many different kinds of soaps she had! Not 2 tables but 3 tables full of delightful treats. I lost track a bunch of times when I was smelling the soaps because alot of them were wonderful and I kept mixing them up but finally settled on this one: Spicy Cranberries. I chose it because it was different and it was not Lavender! (I know those of you who follow me know this was a great deviation for me as Lavender is my all time favorite). And that is precisely why I went in a whole new direction!

Skin Deep Homemade Soaps had some of the most unusual combinations I have ever seen and had sooo many scents to choose from! I would have loved to have one of each but I chose Spicy Cranberries because it wasn't far off from the holidays and I wanted a soap that I could put out during the holidays that was both pretty to look at but had an awesome smell!
Not bad to look at either, huh? It has Shea Butter, Goat's Milk, Glycerin, Oatmeal and Honey all mixed into the soap to come up with that intoxicating scent! I love that she has a page that explains all the scents and where they come from. Naturally, there are way too many scents that go into making all of her soaps so I will just give you the link to check it out for yourself. You will be amazed at where some of your scents for various products come from, I know I was!

Now for some of the benefits of soap I just took a few snippets here and there so to really understand what each ingrediant does for you, go to this page and read up on how all these ingrediants benefit your skin. I found out some of these interesting facts:
When you use glycerin soaps you replenish you skin's natural moisture and it keeps your skin soft and hydrated.

Shea Butter is used to help heal cracked and chapped dry skin. choosing NATURAL products for skin, shea butter is very popular.

The moisturizing benefits of goats milk soap surpass that of commercial soap because of the natural creams in goats milk. Handmade goats milk is really good for those with sensitive skin because it doesn't contain additives like alcohol, petroleum and preservatives.

She also makes body butters but is currently sold out and will be making some more before long so I can't tell you too much about those until she makes more. I also found out that she has what she calls Salts which sound like a bomb of some sorts for baths or foot soaks. They sound awesome but I did not review so I can't tell you too much about them. She also makes a Butterfly Kisses massage butter but has also sold out of those. Mmm, must be two pretty popular products if she has run out! When I met her at the festival she came across as very nice and I could tell she loved doing what she did because she answered all my questions and was quite educated on how to make the soaps and what scents & ingrediants go with what soap. I was surprised she let a complete stranger walk off with one of her bars of soap that she had just met. Very friendly and I bet easy to work with so go and check out her products and see what you think!

I don't have alot of contact info but I do have her email address if you would like to know about something in particular that you could not find on her website. I also found Facebook & Twitter:
