We're traditionalists at heart which is why we use a cold-process method. It's soap the old-fashioned way with lye, water, rich base oils like coconut or olive, and pure essential oils for fragrance. The chemical reaction that occurs during mixing (called saponification) is done without any external heat, creating glycerin. Glycerin is GREAT for your skin because it helps seal in moisture and maintains the skin’s natural water balance. If you’ve ever had that tight, dry feeling after using a bar of “soap” it’s probably because it’s not soap at all but a detergent. Detergents remove the beneficial glycerin and replace it with all kinds of ingredients that can be drying and irritating. Cold process soaps are natural and biodegradable which means they won’t leave any harmful chemicals on you or in the environment. It’s a win-win!
Welcome to Eileen's! Our story is pretty simple. It all started several years ago at Christmas when I made my first set of soaps. At the time, I just wanted to create something natural for my daughter and her family to use at home; I had no idea it was going to turn into a business! Today, my husband and I work together on what you now know as "Eileen's Natural Soaps." Our goal is to create soaps, skincare, and wellness products that are full of beneficial vitamins and nutrients found in natural ingredients. We want to provide affordable alternatives to those wanting to adopt and maintain a healthier, more natural lifestyle.
Did you know that just about anything can be slipped into your skincare? Although the FDA has a set of regulations and standards regarding these products, harmful and toxic chemicals like mercury, parabens, phthalates, and many more still manage to show up in products we use everyday. In addition to causing irritation, redness, and swelling, these toxins are easily absorbed into your skin spreading through the body causing potential damage, allergic reactions, or more serious conditions. What you put on your body is just as important as what goes in it! This is why it is important to switch to all natural skincare products in order to protect yourself from these harmful ingredients.
Everything we make is done with YOU in mind. Our goal is to deliver products with the best skin-nourishing nutrients that only come from natural or organic ingredients. Healthier products mean a healthier you!
