Saffron Handcrafted Soap by Earthy Goods- Review!!

Hello Ladies,

Handmade soaps have always lured me, like ALWAYS.  And using the Saffron Handcrafted Soap only increased my inclination to handmade soaps. 

I have been using the Saffron handcrafted soap for a week now, and I guess it’s the right time to review it now. 


A little about the Essential Oil handmade soaps by Earthy Goods (website):

Exquisite soaps handcrafted by women blending pure coconut oil, herbs and flower extracts. Pure, high quality coconut oil, palm oil, herbs and essential oils are mixed together and poured into a mould. The bars are then cut and cured patiently and naturally in pure fresh air in the high Himalyan hills and lush farms of Pondicherry. Each bar is made with care and NO chemicals. Our soaps are rich in TFM and glycerin so they do not leave skin dry. AND, there are 12 naturally exciting variants to pick from!

Product claim:

The royal properties of saffron are all there in this wonder bar of soap. Known to enhance natural skin fairness, pure saffron oil has been used to create this unique soap.



Price and quantity:

75 INR for 100 gms (I was sent a sample of weight 75 gms)




Ingredients:

Coconut oil
palm oil
lye
saffron essential oil
saffron strands


Variants to pick from:


21 herbs soap: Blend of 21 Ayurvedic herbs with pure essential oils and coconut oil

Forest honey soap: The ultimate moisturising bar made with pure honey, beeswax and coconut oil.

Cinnamon spice soap: It’s a riot of fragrances with Cinnamon, Clove, Mandarin and Tulsi Essential Oils in a pure coconut oil base.

Lemongrass scrub soap: Pure Himalayan apricot scrub, lemongrass essential oil and fine coconut oil

Lavender scrub soap: Pure Himalayan apricot scrub, lavender essential oil and fine coconut oil

Jasmine Lavender soap: Our all time favorite with the sweet seductive notes of Indian Jasmine and the soft notes of mountain lavender and pretty purple swirls!

Sandal turmeric soap: Rich golden turmeric powder with exotic sandal oil and pure coconut oil

Wild mint soap: Crushed wild mountain mint leaves, rosemary essential oil, pure coconut oil


Vanilla Patchouli soap:
A happy joyous blend of sweet vanilla and extract of patchouli flowers

Tulsi Basil soap: Pure tulsi powder and a blend of lavender, patchouli and lemon essential oils.


Packaging:

Comes neatly packed in a plastic cover with a nice colorful label, ignore the packaging looks what’s under it. 

About the product:

Women in the villages of Pondicherry have handcrafted this soap by blending natural oils, herbs and flower extracts. Each soap is cured naturally for weeks in fresh farm air.

A Beautifully scented soap, with 100% natural ingredients which make your normal showers a fragrant experience. 

However I did not try washing my face with it, since I never use any kind of soap on the face, it’s just a personal preference. 



Reasons to like the Saffron Handcrafted Soap by Earthy Goods:

•Affordable. 100 gms for 75 INR is not at all a bad deal. 

•The packaging is good, nothing over done neither under done, I like my soaps simply packed. 

•The fragrance is quiet soothing; I mean it has saffron so has to smell Yumm!

•The soap is very mild.

•The ingredients are surely aint worth a miss.  Has the goodness of coconut oil and saffron essential oil. Coconut oil is considered as a best natural moisturizer while saffron essential oil proffers radiance and glow to the skin. Lye acts as a cleanser while palm oil has anti aging, cleansing and moisturizing properties.



•It doesn’t dry out my skin after baths usually soaps tend to dry out the skin; I can rush out without a body moisturizer. 

•Leaves the skin squeaky clean.

•Lathers beautifully. I like my bath soaps to lather well.  I feel my baths are incomplete if my shower gels and soaps do not lather well.

•The soap longs for a while, I have bathed like for 6 consecutive days with the same soap and it hasn’t reduced a bit, it looks like a brand new bar to me, but if you leave it wet it may wash away like any other soap.

•Suits all skin types. 


Reasons to dislike the Saffron Handcrafted Soap by Earthy Goods:

•The fragrance of the soap doesn’t stay for long; it completely vanishes within 1-2 hours.

•I just wish they were easily available in all cities where we could personally see the products and pick them. 


Repurchase/recommendation:

Well I am eying their lipbalms and a few other soaps so, I will pick another variant of their soaps. 

I recommend to ladies who have an inclination to handmade soaps. You will love it. 
Overall it’s a feel good product!!
