Nourish your skin and delight your senses
Since 2001, Ellie's Handmade Soap has been offering 100% natural olive oil soaps, made from scratch using the traditional cold-process method. My handcrafted soaps are made from scratch using simple, wholesome ingredients that are good for your skin, making them a safe and healthy choice for your entire family. All of the ingredients in my soaps come from natural plant-based sources such as vegetables, nuts, fruits, and herbs. Many of the ingredients I use in my "soap kitchen" are the same healthy ingredients that you cook with in your kitchen at home - like pure olive oil, organic coconut oil, whole grain oatmeal, honey, and fragrant spices.
Gentle olive oil soaps handmade in Ohio
Each batch of Ellie's Handmade Soap starts with lots of olive oil because it is wonderfully moisturizing and packed with skin-loving nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants. Olive oil is the first ingredient in all of my soaps because it makes the most wonderful, silky, exceptionally gentle bar of soap you can find. Other natural vegetable oils, like organic coconut oil, organic sustainable palm oil, and castor bean oils all contribute unique qualities to the soap, helping to create a mild, high-quality bar that is long-lasting and has a rich, luxurious lather.
My soaps are also enriched with nourishing extras such as shea butter, honey and oatmeal to soften and soothe skin and help replace moisture, and natural exfoliants, such as finely ground coffee beans and cornmeal for texture and extra scrubbing power. The subtle colors of the soaps come from the natural ingredients themselves - no artificial dyes or colorants.
Beautiful scents without any artificial fragrances
The last ingredient I add to a batch of soap is probably the first thing you'll notice - the clean, beautiful scents. Whether it's bright vibrant lemon, soothing lavender, or spicy clove, I never use synthetic fragrances in any of my soaps. I only use 100% natural plant-based essential oils. Nothing else can compare to the fresh authentic scents of these pure botanical oils that are pressed or distilled from fresh flower petals, leaves, herbs, citrus peels, spices, and other fragrant plant material. These therapuetic oils not only smell amazing, they also add their own wonderful healing skin care benefits to the soap. And unlike artificially perfumed skin-care products, natural essential oils are much better for your body in the long run and far less irritating to sensitive skin and noses.
And that's it! There are no harsh detergents, no artificial colors or synthetic fragrances, no preservatives, and no fillers in Ellie's Handmade Soap. Just rich moisturizing oils, naturally nourishing glycerin, soothing natural ingredients, and fragrant botanical oils. You might find fancier soaps, but they don't measure up to the high-quality skin care and simple luxury of 100% natural, cold-process, made-from-scratch olive oil soaps.
