What decisions do we make that we may not (or maybe we do!) be in our best interests? More and more people are realizing the difference that can be made with handcrafted items, including handcrafted soaps and other body. Afterall, our skin is our largest organ! We should take care of it!
When at a big box store, or even a health food store, we often pick the soaps and moisturizers that are on sale or that have a special character our children like, or even a smell it has, even if the smell is something potentially harmful. I know I’m guilty of it at times! When we have sensitive skin, we may realize the issues with “regular” products, but really, it is important for all of us to know what we’re using and what it may do to our body. In all reality, the EPA and the Environmental Working Group has told us of the dangers of many of the items in these products and it is time to make a change.
Handcrafted Soaps and Deodorants
It Is Well Soap is a creation of a Phoenix-couple who really wanted to be able to do more for their family and have a great product. Here’s what they had to say to Attached Moms:
|Deodorant by It is Well Soaps
Thank you for your interest in wanting to know more about us. We are a family of 6 dedicated to serving Jesus Christ and fulfilling His will for our family. Our goal is to glorify God through this business adventure by fully utilizing the talents and knowledge that He has equipped us with. We are also dedicated to providing our customers with a superior, high quality product.
We decided to go forth on this adventure because we could not find quality skin care products that were natural and effective. We also wanted products without harsh chemicals that would damage our skin. We had all sorts of rashes and cracked skin that was irritating and would not go away. These issues were on our hands, bottoms, cheeks and lips. We tried to treat these issues with different lotions and creams but as soon as we would put them on, our skin would burn. So we started to research ingredients to make our own lotion to help with these skin issues. We use natural ingredients that would moisturize our skin and not burn when we put it on. The lotion is very good and did help to heal the dry cracked skin that we were experiencing but the problem would consistently return.
Instead of just treating the symptoms, we wanted to figure out what was causing the problems. We tried all different soaps for washing dishes, bathing and daily hand wash but nothing was working. With having 4 young children, there is always someone or something that needs washing. We decided to start researching and learning how to make our own soap. We were very happy with the lotion and thought that a good home made soap would be icing on the cake! Since we have been using our home made soap and lotions, we have not had any skin issues at all!
The products on this site are the result of our research along with the knowledge that God has provided us with. We are praying that these products will be a blessing to you and your family as much as they have been to ours.
