How long do your soap bars last?
Our soaps are known to last between 1 and 2 months in the shower if using for body, hair, shave, etc. and even longer if solely using them as a hand soap! To prolong the life of your bar, we recommend using one of our Soap Savers, these will keep the bar up out of the water and allow for it to dry in between uses.
Do you use coconut or palm oil?
No, SallyeAnder never uses coconut or palm oil. With repeated use, these oils can actually be astringent to your skin. Our Olive Oil blend base contains Olive and Vegetable Oils.
Are your soaps vegan?
All of our soaps are vegan except for the following: Almond Goat Milk, Milk and Mint, Honey Beeswax and Organic Rose soaps.
I'm sensitive to smell, what do your products smell like?
Sallye Ander creams are especially potent! All of our products are made with purer essential oils. If you are sensitive to smell but still want the benefits of using Sallye Ander, we recommend sticking with our Unscented Olive Oil or Oatmeal Essential Soaps. Though sometimes strong, the scents of our soaps are balanced and intoxicating! Our Heavy Duty Hand and Foot Therapy and our "No-Bite-Me" have a very strong minty and herbaceous scent.
Do you use Lye?
Yes! Lye (Sodium Hydroxide) is actually a critical component in the saponification process. Saponification (the process of making soap) is an exothermic chemical reaction that produces soap + glycerin. Most major soap manufacturers actually remove the glycerin and sell that to cosmetics companies. Our soap leaves naturally occurring glycerin intact and this is one of the reasons our customers find our soap so moisturizing.
Do your products expire?
We do not use any stabilizers or add preserving agents to our products. Because we use only natural ingredients, after some time our soaps will lose their scent or begin to discolor - they are however still safe and effective to use.
Once you open your creams or balms, we recommend using them within 2 years. If oil separation occurs in your cream, just mix back in. Lastly, for optimal longevity, keep caps screwed on tightly and keep product out of direct sunlight. If cream dries out due to exposure to air, it is not longer useful.
