Who is SallyeAnder?
SallyeAnder was the nickname of my adopted Grandmother, Sadie. She was an honest, sturdy woman of French-Canadian descent who lived on her family farm in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains. As one of our closest family friends, she was a wonderful example of hard work and honesty. She was never taken in by what was cheap or trendy. That is why my parents named the company (and me) with her in mind.
Why don’t our soaps lather?
Our soaps are not created the same as other soaps, therefore their lather is different. We do not add chemical lather enhancers. Instead we recommend physically creating the lather- use a soft sponge- for rich lather. Or just enjoy the natural creamy texture instead. Lather is NOT crucial for cleansing, it only means that the soap is dissolving rapidly.
How long do our soaps last?
Our soaps last 2-3 months with daily use. Due to the soap making process we use, our soaps do not disintegrate quickly if kept out of water. We also use a hard oil base that keeps the essential oil aroma throughout the entire life of the bar.
Why are our soaps square?
In the SallyeAnder soap making process, our soap becomes very hard. It can be very difficult to cut and mold, so we’ve designed our own soap cutting device that gives you a large 4.6 ounce bar. It can be hard to hold at first, but as you use the bar, the edges become soft.
Why do our soaps smell so strong?
We get this questions a lot! Our soaps are made with pure, 100% essential oils. No fillers, or fragrance oils- which makes for a very strong, soothing bar of soap. The best part about the strength of our bars, it that when mixed with water- the scent of the soap becomes even more powerful!
