FAQ about us

What's in Oso Handmade Soap bars?

We create Cold Process soap made with the following simple, but quality ingredients:

  • Olive oil - contains three major antioxidants: vitamin E, polyphenols, and phytosterols. When topically applied, may help protect the skin from premature skin aging. Vitamin E partly accounts for the anti-aging benefits of olive oil because it helps restore skin smoothness and protects against ultraviolet light. 
  • Coconut oil - able to penetrate your skin on a deeper level than your average product because of its low molecular weight and the way it bonds with proteins. Has saturated fats that helps the skin stay moisturized.
  • Organic Palm oil - We get our Palm oil from Columbus Foods, Inc. where they sell organic palm with a certification of its sustainability in addition to its membership with RSPO. (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil)
    Palm oil contains the hard to find tocotrienols, which are members of the vitamin E family. It is added to skin care products not only for its anti-aging properties, but also because it provides deep moisturizing properties making the skin soft and supple.
  • Sweet Almond oil - has anti-oxidative properties, sweet almond oil is known for protecting skin against UV radiation damage and keeping skin soft and supple, a mild, hypoallergenic oil, it’s safe for sensitive skin.
  • Vegetable oil - Has anti-oxidant properties help to protect skin cells from free radical damage and keep the skin healthy and young. Contains vitamins such as B vitamins, Vitamin E and Vitamin K.
  • Beeswax(2%) - An emollient and a humectant, drawing moisture to the skin and sealing it in. Beeswax offers anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral benefits.
  • Essential oils - Scents derived from the oils of the actual plant or plant parts. Only high grade essential oils from reputable companies are used. Per customer request, a few bars such as seasonal bars include fragrance oils. 

* See individual Bar description to see specific Essential oils, scent, or color added. 

 

* For Tree-nut Allergies - In our current recipe, Sweet Almond Oil makes up 9% of all the oils used in making our batches of soap.
