How To Choose The Right Soap
Step 1: Know your body and your skin type
Make sure you know your allergies and bodily reactions to ingredients. Generally if you have taken those food products before and have no bodily reaction, you will be very safe with it as a soap.
Step 2: Check Soap Ingredients and Know Your Sensitivity (only you know!)
Different strokes for different folks. There is no one size fits all when it comes to our skin.
Look through the ingredient’s list of various soaps to ensure compatibility with your skin. Although goats’ milk is highly moisturising, some people take to vegan/plant based (olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, sunflower oil based) soaps better. If you have a milk allergy, it’s good to start off with the plant-based soaps though most Asian skin do well with Goat’s milk soap. If you have highly sensitive skin, avoid even naturally scented soaps or products with fragrance. At The Soap Haven, all our soap is scented with all natural essential oils or minerals. When you see a commercial label with “Fragrance” that means it is artificially scented and the manufacturer does not want to tell you the chemicals used.
If you are unsure what ingredients suit you, start by buying one of each type and try them one at a time. Our soap range includes:
Organic Soap (GMO-free)
Step 3: Never go for looks and color
Many times people choose soap based on colors, how it looks and how it smells. Those are not the best criteria! Always choose the soap that is most SUITABLE for your skin. Never choose a soap based on color, looks or even scent.
Step 4: Go for it! Trust your instincts and Shop Now! If you never try it, you will never know!

Travel Tips for Soap Bars:
ALL our HANDMADE soap bars can be cut with a kitchen knife. You can cut them in small pieces according to your needs, cling wrap them for your travels and never have to worry about liquid restrictions for air travel again!
IMPORTANT! Get a Soap Dish! This will help your soap to last longer by allowing excess water to drain, thus preventing you soap from turning mushy and continuing to dissolve between uses.
Update: We now also have a bamboo charcoal soap saver mesh bag that both prolongs soap life by allowing it to dry easily between uses and also creates loads of lather with just a little bit of water!
