Handmade Artisan Soaps, Natural Liquid Soap, Body Scrubs and Lip Balms

If you haven't tried handmade, handcrafted artisan soaps made with the cold process method, you are in for a treat. My soaps are made with food grade ingredients like olive oil, coconut, palm kernel, beeswax, shea or mango butter and castor oil. Each batch is cured for 4-6 weeks. This makes my soaps exceptionally mild with lots of creamy lather. Water that is used during the soapmaking process evaporates, making the soap hard, so it will last you longer in the bath or the shower. Handmade soap creates its own glycerin during the soapmaking process, unlike commercially made soaps, which take the glycerin out. This makes the soap gentle. It is suitable for any type of skin; whether oily, dry, acne prone or mature.

I have been making soaps since 1969. Before that, I had my mother's and grandmother's help. I am a this generation soapmaker. I combine my knowledge of skin and body care with herbs and aromatherapy to bring you the best handmade soaps, skin care and body care available. I pride myself on using natural ingredients, essential oils and no phtalates in my fragrances. Ginger's Garden handmade soaps are packaged in soap boxes, so they come to you protected. They also make wonderful gifts for any occasion.

Buy one or two of my soaps as gifts for Valentine's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Birthday, Anniversary, wedding or a baby shower. My soaps are available for wholesale with a low minimum. Feel free to email me and I would be happy to discuss your needs with you.

Til next time!

Body Scrub Polish Natural unscented with organic dates

The dried, powdered dates in this body scrub exfoliate gently, leaving the skin smooth and glowing. Use about once a week in the shower. It is best to start with damp or slightly wet skin. Apply a small amount, then gently rub on legs, feet, back or arms. It leaves the skin soft, smooth and radiant. This is an emulsified cleansing body scrub. The natural oils, butters and the dates will not separate, so there is no need to stir before use. That means that once you rinse off, it will not leave your skin oily or greasy as it rinses off easily. Help polish you skin to perfection! Avoid contact with eyes. Date body polish contains no parabens or SLS. Comes in a pretty green jar with easy to use flip top.

DATE POWDER gently scrubs away dry skin cells leaving your skin refreshed and gently exfoliated. It is a gentle abrasive which helps reveal more beautiful skin.

RICE BRAN OIL is a light moisturizing oil for silky smooth skin. It is very hydrating and rich in antioxidants and tocotrienols which is vitamin E.

CASTOR OIL is highly emollient and also has Vitamin E. It contains triglyceride which makes it an ideal natural ingredient in skin and body care. 

MANGO BUTTER is a soft solid emollient which helps add moisture and hydration to the skin. It has skin softening properties. It is food for your skin as it contains natural moisturizing and antioxidant properties. It is suitable for any type of skin.

ALMOND OIL is a lightweight oil and the skin's best friend! It moisturizes lightly and contains fatty acids, magnesium and Vitamin E. The use of almond oil dates back to the time of Egyptians where it was used as a moisturizing, conditioning and nourishing oil for skin and hair care.

Chocolate and Vanilla with no calories! Really

If you love chocolate as much as I do, you will love this checkerboard squares artisan soap. Creamy white vanilla and rich chocolate combine in this handmade artisan soap for a truly luxurious bathing experience. My soaps are made by hand with natural ingredients like olive, coconut, mango, shea, or cocoa butter, castor oil and natural beeswax. This batch also has the addition of pure vanilla and real chocolate.

This soap batch has been cured for over six weeks. This makes the soap milder and the water used during the process evaporates. This is done so the soap will last longer in your bath or a shower. If you keep chocolate vanilla hand crafted soap out of direct water spray, let it dry between uses and use a draining soap dish, this will give your handmade soap a longer lasting life.

It smells so good, you might want to eat it, but please don't! Buy this gentle, mild handmade artisan soap in my Ginger's Garden store. If you buy more then one, I will save you on shipping. These soap bars will make a great gift for anyone that loves chocolate!
