$7.00

An all-natural, handmade goat milk soap perfect for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, a girlfriend, a cat lover, or all of the above.  Each soap has one of 3 different slinky, sassy cats posed against a pink background, and there are 3 different soaps - a pale pink with smoke-gray cats, a medium pink base with brown cats, and a slightly deeper pink background with black cats.  The kitties are colored with either activated charcoal (black and smoky gray cats) or natural mica (brown cat), and the pink tint is from olive oil infused with madder root.  The fragrance is an all-natural essential oil blend made with Ylang Ylang flower and Bulgarian Lavender oils, with a touch of Balsam de Peru EO.  This is a very floral scent, perfect for a romantic gift.

The black and brown cat soaps are my luxurious goat milk recipe, with oils including sweet almond and avocado, and shea butter for extra moisturizing.  The smoky gray cats are my goat milk and pastured lard recipe, with local pastured, non-GMO lard hand-rendered here at SFH, and coconut and olive oils.  All soaps come packaged in a square brown kraft paper box with a round window showcasing the cat, with complete labels on the back and side. If you have a specific cat pose preference, message me for availability – otherwise I will choose which cat to send, based on current stock.

Please note - I do not have the ability to assign a number available to each option separately, I can only give a total number for all items together, so please go by the individual numbers available below.  It will be possible for you to put more in your cart than listed here, but I won't be able to fill the order if it's more than I actually have.

Goat milk is renowned for the luxurious qualities it gives soap, particularly gentle exfoliating and excellent moisturizing. I hand-milk my goats Gretchen, Snowpea, and Elvira, and use the rich milk as well as olive and coconut oils, almond, castor, and avocado oils and shea butter to make this wonderful soap. I don't use Palm oil as many soapmakers do - while it itself is a useful oil, I can't condone the harmful cultivation practices used to produce it, and find I don't need it - this soap is wonderful without it!  It is so moisturizing and good for your skin, with extra vitamins and nutrients from the goat milk, as well as the luxurious oils I use.  If you have used goat milk soap before, or any good handmade soap, you know that it is a completely different creature than commercial soap, which can be so drying!  When soap is made by hand, the chemical reaction of oils with a lye solution forms the substances soap and glycerin.  A typical bar of handmade soap is roughly 1/3 glycerin!  This is a humectant, meaning it pulls water from the air - when on your skin, it literally moisturizes your skin by attracting water to it.  In commercial soaps, the glycerin is distilled and removed, and later sold back to you in a lotion, but in the "real thing", it is all one package.  I used to use lotions and moisturizers a lot, especially in the winter, but I virtually never use them anymore, other than some of my grass-fed tallow balm on my hands occasionally.

Our motto here at SFH is “By Hand”, and we really mean it! I make all my soap from scratch – I never use a purchased base - I milk my goats (and sheep) by hand, render the local lard myself (usually on our woodstove) and all my soap is made in my kitchen in small batches from 6 to 36 bars at a time. I only use great ingredients – no palm oil, soybean oil, canola oil, or any others with controversial cultivation, harvest, labor, or business practices, and nothing really exotic and expensive, so I can keep my costs down for you. I have a few recipes that are the best I could find – and then I tweaked them to meet my standards while maintaining the high-quality product (so my shampoo replaces the recipe's palm oil with local, pastured lard, and the expensive Kukui nut oil with avocado oil). Please read my About Handmade Soap page for more details on why you should use quality handcrafted soap!

Other soap companies are just that – SOAP companies – but we are a small, family homestead that produces handmade soap as one facet of our diverse, small-scale farm so that we can both raise our 3 home-schooled boys and teach them how to love and care for the world around them through animals, gardens, and the joy, satisfaction, and confidence that comes from knowledge and capability. If you're interested in finding out more about our homestead, stop by our blog and photo galleries here at SolaceFarmHomestead.com, or take a peek at our Instagram page, or pop over to our Facebook page.
