Our cold process soaps are made the old fashioned way and we often add different ingredients to each soap based on the properties we'd like them to have. Each small artisan batch is made with care and attention to detail. Cold process soap batches take between 4 - 6 weeks to make once we have a design in mind and all the ingredients in the studio. We start with prepping the ingredients and colors. After prepping (usually done the day before) we create the soaps you see. We usually make 2 -3 batches when we are soaping. This can take half a day to a full day, depending on the concept. The next day is devoted to cleaning all the dishes that the whirlwind of soaping makes. On the 4th day we cut our soaps into slices. Each batch makes around 15 bars of soap. The soap will then rest for a couple of days before going through what we like to call the refining stage. Not all bars do, but most will be planed and have the edges beveled. At this point we put them out into the shop for our customers to enjoy seeing. They will be rotated every 2 -3 days to ensure they cure at an even rate. This takes an average of 3 - 4 weeks, but so worth the wait!
We don't always list every ingredient so please let us know before ordering if you have any concerns so we can address them together.
And check out our Instagram or Facebook site at Willow Bella Soaps. You will find more information and more pictures there. Or feel free to contact us with any questions.
Because these are handcrafted please remember that to make your soap last for as long as possible you really should keep your soaps dry between uses. We suggest a soap drying rack of some sort.
As a reminder - no soap looks just like the other and no batch looks like the next. These are actual pictures made with the bars of soap we've just cut. So when these are gone they are gone. Which is wonderful! It gives us an excuse to make more! And we love making more soap!!!

We strive to make all our sizing as accurate as we possibly can and are usually even more generous than the size shows. But our products are handcrafted and hand poured so most items will be different in color, size, and shape from one to the other.
We do not strive for cookie cutter products but rather artistic details in all of our creations. Having said that each batch may differ in color and design.
