About Our Products
If you have little ones (we love smooshy, cuddly babies!) we carry a full line of organic baby products. From baby powder to soap, shampoo, lotion, and our lavender baby oil (one of our bestsellers), you’ll feel comfortable knowing everything’s safe for tender, young skin.
Our organic bar soap is made using a 300-year-old method from France. It’s mixed for hours and takes approximately four weeks to become the extremely moisturizing, long-lasting bar you see on our site. This stuff is luxurious. We also sell a liquid castile soap which can be used on even the most sensitive skin but is equally effective for household cleaning. (Check out the recipe on the castle soap page.)
Speaking of mopping the floor and shining the windows, we carry several natural cleaning products that won’t require you to open all the windows and wear a pair of yellow scrubbing gloves. Yes, they’re that safe! Whether you’re washing your own hair or your pets, we have shampoos, conditioners, and lotions to give you the soft, squeaky clean skin you desire.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF NATURAL WAY ORGANICS BAR SOAPS
Western Soap had its origins in ancient Greece on the Island of Lesbos. There, animal sacrifices were made to the Goddesses. Because the sacrifices were often cremated, hardwood ashes would accumulate (an early source of alkali). These ashes mixed with the tallow of the sacrificed animals. It is said that after heavy rain a yellow runoff from the fire pit made its way downhill from the temple. The local women washing their clothes in the river noticed that their clothes were cleaner when the river ran yellow. History remembered their poet, Sappho, who wrote of these times and honored her with the definition of Saponification – the chemical name for soap making. These are the same women who invented banks.
Over time it was learned that adding salt water to the mixture would precipitate the removal of glycerin and excess water, thus making the soap harder, and not subject to the month-long curing process required of true handmade soap. This old-fashioned “yellow soap” was used for laundry, dishes, and the occasional bath. In France during the reign of Louis the 14th, bathing was considered an oddity, not the norm. It is said that King Louis guillotined 3 soap makers for making soap that irritated his very sensitive royal skin. In desperation, the 4 remaining soap makers in Paris got together and invented a method of pouring and curing the soap – taking a month to make a single bar. They saved their own necks, and the world got handmade soap (a.k.a. poured soap, cold process soap, farm soap, cured soap). Natural Way Organics is made using a modern version of this three-hundred-year-old method. Organic oils of Palm, Coconut, Olive and Palm Kernel are blended and mixed at precise temperatures with an alkali solution. (Modern Alkali is made by running electricity through salt water.) The batch is mixed for hours, allowing it to thicken slowly. When it is ready, botanical concentrates and organic herbs, spices and grains are added. The batch is then poured into wooden molds and kept warm for about three days. As the soap solidifies, alkali salts begin to rise to the top like cream. Around the fourth day the soap, now solid in block form, is removed from the molds, skimmed of all alkali salts, and cut into individual bars. The bars are then placed on custom-made oak and stainless steel screened drying racks and cured for about three more weeks. This process produces the mildest soap that can be made. Often lasting about twice as long as conventional bars, this soap is extremely moisturizing and soothing to your skin. Various herbal extracts called essential oils are used to enhance and individualize the soaps, as well as to accommodate various skin types. Peppermint, Citrus contains natural astringents making them suitable for skin that is not dry. Lavender relaxes pores making it the perfect soap for normal to dry skin. Add organic oatmeal and you have Oatmeal Lavender, excellent for dry sensitive skin. Our Honey soap is great for combination skin combining the exfoliating benefits of cornmeal with the moisturizing properties of honey and the natural astringent properties found in clove oil. Unscented is a mild and hypoallergenic bar, perfect for the most sensitive of skin types. This bar comes highly recommended for sufferers of dry skin and Dermatitis. When the crew at Natural Way Organics set out to make a soap that wouldn’t dry the most sensitive of skins, little did they know the journey would take them to the cutting edge of cosmetics chemistry, and hundreds of years into the past! Natural Way Organics bar soap is the first organic bar soap in 200 years to be a truly created miracle.
