Tinas Hand Crafted Soaps


The other day, I received a package. Here's what was inside: An avocado soap, an oatmeal yoghurt soap, a honey, cream & lanolin soap (up there on the left), and sample sizes of rose and egg soap.


Tina has been making her own hand-crafted soap for a while and is considering opening an online shop. She asked me if I would mind trying out her creations and giving her my feedback.

Included in the package was a detailed hand-written ingredients list for each soap. Just reading them was enough to get my appetite going – yoghurt, avocado oil, oatmeal, rose, egg (yes, really), honey, and cream.

My feedback?

Love the feel.

Love the scent.

Love the look.

And, after a week of non-stop testing, I have fallen well and truly in love with Tinas beautiful creations.

Tina,  how soon until your shop opens?

I don't use any other kind of soaps or shampoos anymore - hand made soaps are just so much better in every way. :) And those you got look and sound so lovely, I'd like to try them too...

Signe - do you make your own? The one thing I have never tried is cold processed soap--- one day maybe..

Thank you for your kind words Lise, I am so happy that you like them :-)

The soaps started developing in my mind as I was making balms and peeling/washing powders and reading more about cosmetic products. It is very fascinating to see how they turn out. My poor friends have had to listen to a lot of talk about soapmaking and have been testing them for a while now. I like to make both more "natural" soaps with e.g. egg, carrot juice, honey and avocado, but also some colorful soaps with micas and scents.

I am working on selling my soaps and will keep you informed :-)

Wow.. Tina I would love if you could direct me as to a starting point in what you have provided here? The all natural alvacado, olive oil soaps? I am new and I am just in love with the pictures and can only imagine how they make your skin feel.
