🧼 Artisan Soap, Made in Idaho 🧼

Did you know all of our soaps are made by hand, right here on the farm?  This is one of the many ways we ensure product quality and safety.  We reduce waste by using virtually every part of the animal to create premium quality value-added products like our hand made artisan soaps.

 

Measuring oils for handmade ostrich oil soap

 We start with our super moisturizing, 100% pure ostrich oil - the largest ingredient in all of our soaps.  Although very similar to emu oil, ostrich oil consists of over 70% oleic acid and palmitic acid, which enables greater skin-permeability than emu.  Ostrich oil's higher concentration of Omega fatty acids - specifically, Omega 9 - allows it to better penetrate and hydrate the skin, enabling superior results.

 

Pour oils to make artisan ostrich oil soap

 

We then we add carefully selected & sustainably sourced pure oils like babassu, almond, coconut, sunflower, and shea butter.  The combination of additional oils is optimized not only for deep, effective cleansing, but also for providing maximum moisture back to the skin.  These oils are blended together over heat for a smooth, even texture, and then poured into molds to set for 2 days.

 

slicing artisan ostrich oil soaps

 

 

After two days we remove the now solid "loaf" from the trays and slice into bars by hand with a cutting device that uses sharp wire strings that make it look like the inside of a piano!

Once individually cut, the bars then cure for an additional 30 days before they are labeled and ready to be shipped to your door.  The curing process hardens the soap bars to ensure a long-lasting product.

  

Using ostrich oil to create all-natural soaps is just one way we reduce our environmental impact - by not letting any part of the animal go to waste and providing Americans with choices they can feel great about.
