Fine Artisan Quality Handmade Soaps & Bath & Body Products
At Luralu's we make handmade soaps and lotions that are good for your skin! Our soaps cleanse your skin without drying your skin. Handmade soaps can be especially good for dry skin because the glycerin that is a by-product of the soapmaking process is retained in our handmade soaps. Glycerin is a natural humectant and moisturizer. Unlike many commercial companies, we do not remove the glycerin and sell it to cosmetic companies. In addition to the naturally occurring glycerin, our handmade soap is superfatted, meaning that it contains extra amounts of soothing, luxurious oils including olive oil, coconut oil, and organic shea butter. Our soaps contain no preservatives, no parabens, and no lauryl sulfates (detergents). Take a look at the commercial "soap" that you've been buying. Most can't even be called soap. They must be labeled as "bath bars" or "body bars". They can't legally be called soap because they contain added detergents that will strip your skin of its natural oils.
Our lotions leave your skin feeling soft, silky, and wonderful! The primary ingredient in our lotions in sunflower oil, which is naturally high in vitamin E and very good for your skin. Our lotions are light and absorb into your skin quickly, with no greasy feel. Like our lotions, our sugar scrubs contain sunflower oil and are blended with sugar, to gently exfoliate your skin, leaving it soft and glowing. Our body butters contain shea butter and aloe and are excellent for extremely dry skin. Because they contain no water, as do lotions, they are heavier and are best used at night, or right after a shower, on especially dry skin. Although soap bars do not require a preservative, we do add preservatives to our lotions, our body butters, and sugar scrubs for your protection. Anne-Marie Faiola of Brambleberry Soap Supplies wrote an excellent article on preservatives use that will explain why we feel that they are absolutely necessary in our products other than soap.
All of our products are hand-made in small batches using only the finest ingredients. We offer several delightful fragrances that are available in soaps, lotions, body butters and sugar scrubs. Our products are also available in unscented varieties. In addition, we offer specialty soaps, including Gardener's Soap, Southern Citrus Kitchen Soap, and Hunter's Soap. Try our products today. Your skin will love you for it!
