FAQ

How long do your soaps take to ship, once I place my order?

Most soaps ship in 24-48 hours. If a soap has just been made, but hasn't finished its 4-6 week cure time yet, it'll be available for Pre-Order, and will ship once curing is complete.

 

Does your soap smell like bacon? I don't want dogs following me around!

Nope! Not even a little. Careful though...they might make you more attractive to that special someone ;-)

 

Does your soap TASTE like bacon?

While our soap does smell good enough to eat, we really don't recommend it.
Eating soap is for potty mouths, you mundane noodle!

 

Does your soap really have bacon in it?

We render, recycle and refine our own restaurant-grade bacon, as the key ingredient in our soap recipe. 

 

Bacon? In soap? Are you crazy?

No! And neither were your ancestors. Let me explain. No...there is too much. Let me sum up. When bacon is rendered, all that delicious bacon fat melts into an oil. The UN-purified version with all the little bacon bits in it is what we know as bacon grease, and that would be nasty in soap. However, once we refine & purify it, we get good old fashioned lard, which has been used in handmade soaps for centuries. It makes a good, hard, long-lasting, bar, with great lather, and excellent skin conditioning properties! 

 

How does bacon (lard) turn into soap?

All true soap uses lye to convert fats and oils into soap, through a magical (ok, chemical) process called "saponification." Once the saponification process is complete, no lye remains in the finished bar. 

 

Does your soap feel greasy?

Not at all! Our soap leaves you feeling squeaky clean & fresh.

  

Does your soap contain palm oil?

Yes, our blend contains RSPO Certified Sustainable palm oil.

 

What else is in your soap?

In addition to rendered, refined & recycled bacon, our proprietary oil blend also includes coconut oil, sunflower oil, RSPO certified sustainable palm oil, castor oil, and shea butter. All these work together, to make a long-lasting, skin-loving bar, with excellent lather. Soap is normally made with water, but we often substitute more interesting ingredients like champagne, goat milk, beer, almond milk, etc. Check the item descriptions for the actual ingredients of each bar.

 

Are all your soaps safe for all skin types?

We use only ingredients that have been tested skin-safe for soap. That said, everyone's skin is different! Some of our soaps contain nut products, and some people may find they have a sensitivity to certain fragrance oils. We don't sell anything we haven't tried ourselves!
