Soaps are delivered every 2 months. The first package is sent out 2-3 business days from purchase and every 8 weeks from then on.

 

Can I choose which soap products I get in my subscription service?

Unless there are allergy or health requirements, soaps in the subscription service are sent at random from the SwH range.

We will endeavour to send out a different mix each time so that you get to try them all.

Do you test on animals?

Nope, that would be a bit crazy! All the recipes for Soap with Hope products are tried and true methods of natural, traditional cold process soap making, and tested on friends and family 😉

 

Is there potential to have a reaction Soap with Hope products?

Soap with Hope soaps are made using traditional cold-process methods, which means that they cure for 6 weeks before selling to ensure they are at the correct ph for the skin. There are ingredients listed on each Soap with Hope products. We recommend that you read these to ensure an allergic reaction does not occur, and test on a small patch of skin to make sure this product is right for you. If a reaction occurs, discontinue use. Some essential oils, such a peppermint, can cause a slight tingling sensation. If this is uncomfortable, discontinue use.

 

Do your products contain preservatives?

No, Soap with Hope products does not use EDTA or any other form of preservative. Vitamin E is a natural method to preserve beauty products and is used in the Soap with Hope lip balms. Due to this, we recommend keeping soap away from pools of water, as they will diminish quickly. Lip balms should be used within 6 months of purchase date.

 

What is the difference between Fragrance and Essential Oils?

Fragrance oil(s), also known as aroma oils, aromatic oils, and flavuor oils, are blended synthetic aroma compounds or natural essential oils that are diluted with a carrier like propylene glycol, vegetable oil, or mineral oil.

Essential oils are highly concentrated plant oils. Essential oils have been used for centuries for traditional healing. Soap with Hope uses essential oils where possible, however some, such as Sandalwood, are endangered. For this reason, Sandalwood fragrance oil is used in the African Elephant Bar. Some essential oils, such as peppermint, lemongrass and lavender, are extremely strong in aromas, and are to be used with caution in pregnant women.
