Joy of Soap review and Giveaway!


CLOSED
Hey neighbors,

What a beautiful day out here At the Fence. After a rainy weekend it is great to be outside again. I wanted to tell you about Joy of Soap, a natural, handmade soap company. You would not believe how wonderful the package smelled when it arrived. I have Gardenia Goosebumps (my favorite), Manly Man (I love the fragrance), and Peppermint Passion (Wonderful!). I also received a black soap dish, what a nice benefit! The soaps are $7.50 for a 5oz. bar and $3.50 for a 2oz bar. I really like mine. They lather up nicely, and the fragrance lingers! They will also be carrying Creams, Cleansers, and Scrubs in the future. Joy of Soap is even willing to customize a scent if you are interested.

About the Joy of Soap:

"The Joy of Soap was created as a result of my many years spent traveling for work, which can be fun and exciting but hard on your skin. I always had trouble finding soaps that were not full of skin-drying chemicals and ultimately decided the way to get the finest possible soap was to start making my own using natural ingredients and old fashioned craftsmanship. From this The Joy of Soap was born.

In addition to the dry atmosphere on airplanes, commercially made soaps placed in hotel bathrooms add to skin dehydration. All of our natural soap is hand crafted, hand cut and hand wrapped in small batches, using certified organic oils, therapeutic grade essential oils and ingredients that are gentle on your skin. Our smaller size soap is perfect for work or pleasure trips enabling you to nurture your skin while away from home and be conscious of the environment by eliminating the need to dispose of hotel soaps and packaging. Take my soaps with you in a handy container on every trip and always enjoy the nurturing results of The Joy of Soap natural, organic ingredients.

Customers have been asking for other bath and skin care products, and based on suggestions and feedback we are working on a line of bath and skin care products that will help you to develop your own daily cleansing and bathing rituals using gentle and nourishing oils and botanicals that leave your skin clean, refreshed and rejuvenated, and that provide you with a daily indulgence to restore and increase your well being.

Melissa Hutcheson"

I really think my neighbors will like the Joy of Soap products. And Joy of Soap is giving away a GC for $40. Just browse their site and imagine what you might purchase.

Very interesting! I learned that, due to the chemical composition of soap, it's basically impossible for any soap to be over 85% organic, which doesn't meet the standards for USDA organic certification.

I visited the site and really like the fact that their soaps are long-lasting. There is nothing more frusterating than putting a fresh bar out and having it turn into a sliver within a week!!!

I knew basically what Essential Oils were, but I had no idea that they had "antiseptic, analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties." I knew I liked products with Essential Oils better than those with perfumes, and now I like them even more!

How is The Joy of Soap different from soaps for sale in the supermarket?
The Joy of Soap is made from only food grade vegetable oils and sustainable plant materials. Commercially made soaps, contain animal fat, petroleum derivatives, synthetic colorings, and chemical preservatives. These are actually not bars of soap, but detergents. Also, The Joy of Soap is cruelty-free.
