Simplenakedsoap comes from a small town called Balclutha in South Otago New Zealand
Our goats graze on 20 acres of grass, gorse and broome and live along side, chickens, horses, cows, bees and of course the three dogs. Happy goats that love their nuts!
We decided to make goats milk soap because I was getting very dry and sore skin. It was becoming very itchy using commercially manufactured soap and expensive body wash. After alot of trial and error I taught myself how to make soap the old fashion way, the cold process way. Using this method keeps all the good properties of the milk and oil together, thus making a gentle, moisturising bar of soap for you and your family.
I use coconut oil, olive oil, rice bran & castor oil, and my soaps are enriched with shea butter or cocoa butter.
Going one step further with my soap, i decided to work with clays, not only for giving colour to the soaps but also for the benefit they give to the skin.
Red/Rose Clay. High in iron oxide its great for improving the appearance of broken capillaries. Pink Clay is great for all skin types. From fragile, dehydrated to mature, lined or wrinkled skin. Green Clay may help with breakout, redness and inflammation. Great for drawing out toxins and impurities.
Activated Charcoal can absorb many toxins. Its been said it can help acne but can also moisturise and nourish the dry skin.
Salt, this is great to give the skin a slight exfoliation getting rid of the dead cells so the new ones can flourish.
Using these clays, activated charcoal & salts, I feel like I am bringing a modern twist to soaps made the old fashion way.
- Alpha Hydroxy Acids: This help remove dead skin cells, which then helps many skin conditions by removing irritation from your skin’s surface and in turn, leaves new cells on the surface of your skin which that are smoother and younger looking.
- Cream: Fat molecules are an important part of making good soap and, helps with dry skin.
- Vitamins: high in Vitamin A, which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue, and maintain healthy skin.
- Minerals: Goat milk contains important minerals for the skin such as selenium, calcium, iron & sodium
Goat milk soap is known to help people with dry or sensitive skin, or conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
Absolutely NO palm oil, animal fats (lard), parabens or SLS are used in the production of our soaps.
We use honey and milk from our own farm in our soaps; they are a natural product, and are therefore able to be used as shampoos, with no added conditioning necessary, so you can potentially do away with extra chemicals in your shower.
Our products are designed for the skin, all of the skin, from the top of the head to the soles of our feet. The skin is a living breathing organ, and we think it needs to be treated with tenderness.
To prolong the lifespan of your natural soap do not allow the soap to sit in water. Your soap needs to be stored in a dish or container that allows air circulation in between use.
Keep your soaps out of direct sunlight as the natural ingredients and colours may fade.
If you can, cut the soap in half and just use half at a time. This is great if you have brought a couple of different varieties and you can enjoy a mixture of aromas during the week!
Store unused soap in a cool dry place, not the bathroom. A linen closet is great! Plus the smell will make your linen smell great!
And finally, enjoy your soaps, use them....I will make more for you!
"I love Tracy, Malcolm and their soap! It has honestly done so many wonders in my life, I’ve had many restless nights and next to no sleep with my boy, who had really bad eczema on his face and after using their soap and cream my boy now has a clear face, a lot happier within himself and sleeps a lot better without having to itch, cry and make his face bleed I tried so many things to try and get on top of Felix's eczema but nothing worked for long term I am so happy that I found this lovely lady in Alex at the blossom festival and then again at the Invercargill southern market! These guys are really made a huge and positive impact in my life and I couldn’t thank them any more!! Highly recommend"
