Based in the Alcornocales Natural Park in the Southern most
tip of Andalucía, Albaverde handmade soaps are lovingly
handmade in small batches using locally produced extra virgin
olive oil, organic coconut oil, spring water, pure essential
oils and various natural additives such as unrefined avocado
oil, plant extracts, flower petals and seeds.
Being blessed with the
wonderful dry, sun soaked climate of Andalucía provides me
perfect curing conditions and the handmade soaps are given a
six week cure to ensure an extra gentle and long lasting soap

Why handmade soap?
Real handmade soaps are made from scratch by
hand using a combination of oils and lye. Using the cold
process method, all Albaverde handmade soaps are made
exclusively from high quality food grade locally sourced extra virgin olive
oil and coconut oil at very low temperatures which ensures
that the skin care benefits of the various oils used is
maintained within the soaps.
Added to this is the benefit of the natural
vegetable glycerine that is produced in the soap making
process and is maintained in a cold process handmade soap,
making a soap an excellent aid in the treatment of
dry skin conditions - I have developed a range of enriched
soaps that are particularly good for dry skin conditions - see our range of
Soaps for dry skin.
All the soaps are hand stirred until they reach
the required saponification at which point lots of extra
goodies are added such as shea butter, seaweed extract,
flower petals and of course wonderfully combined pure
essential oils chosen not only for their lovely scent but also
for their therapeutic properties - see
Soaps for everyday.
Absolutely no artificial colours,
fragrances or preservatives are used in the soaps I make, ensuring a truly natural
handmade product. Bear in mind that your skin is in fact the
largest organ of your body, not only excreting toxins through
its pores but absorbing them as well, which means keeping
things as natural as possible is an important choice if you
are concerned about your general health and well being. Treat yourself or a
friend to something really pure and special - see
I have also sourced some special accessories,
all handmade, to complement the handmade soap range - see
Gift boxes & accessories.
