Mama® artisan soap is hand-crafted with olive, coconut and palm oils, using the cold process method of soap making. Our bars have an outstanding lather and leave your skin feeling soft and silky. Unlike commercial brands, our soap retains its glycerin, which makes for a naturally moisturizing soap.
Our January Soap of the Month marks the start of a new year and a new decade, if you can believe it! Sage has long been a revered herb for smoke cleansing (aka smudging) with the purpose of clearing negative energy from your space, so we put our spin on it, soap style! Dalmatian sage essential oil and a smoky swirl of activated charcoal will cleanse and clear your skin as well as your spirit in the hope of a fresh start for the new year. Out with the old and in with the new and all that jazz. Happy New Year, and here's to a clean slate in 2020!
Fun fact: White sage, the typical plant used in smudge sticks, is now classified as an at-risk plant because it has been over-harvested in the wild. There are many other herbs that do the same work and are more readily available and ethical to use. And if you really want to get with the times, you can call it smoke cleansing instead of smudging, which is a sacred and culturally-specific, Native American practice. The more we know, the better we do!
We cut each bar a chunky 5 oz, and cure it for 3 weeks. The finished bars look splendidly natural, like the ingredients that they are made of. Please note: soap design will vary with each bar, as all our soaps are made by hand in small batches.
Our soaps are great in the shower! We use them with a nylon puff for a great lather.

Product tip: For best use, we recommend cutting the bar into thirds before using. This not only creates a more ergonomic shape that fits in your hand, it also maximizes the life of your soap.
