All Mountain Spring Soaps™ are made with premium oils and pure spring water. No artificial colorants are used, some bars are colored with herbs and spices. All batches are hand stirred the old-fashioned way, using the cold process method. This time tested technique is a way of blending ingredients at a low temperature to retain all of the glycerin, a natural emollient. Glycerin is removed during the manufacture of many commercial soaps, and they often contain detergents or petroleum products that can be harsh to the skin. Our soaps are hand cut and trimmed, then allowed to air dry for six weeks to provide a long lasting and mild bar.
