FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHY USE HANDMADE SOAP?
Most store bought soap is made with harsh detergents and chemicals that strip our skin of its natural oils. Each bar of Chamomile Jane soap is made using simple ingredients including plant-based oils and botanical colorants and clays that work with our skin's natural ability to retain moisture.
DOES SOAP HAVE TO BE MADE WITH LYE...
I MEAN, WON'T THAT BURN MY SKIN?
Yes, true soap is made using a combination of oils or fats and lye!
But, a well-made bar of soap doesn’t contain lye (sodium hydroxide)
in the finished product, so it will not burn your skin.
In fact, the properties from the oils used are what creates a rich moisturizing, cleansing bar of soap! That amazing process, known as saponification,
chemically transforms the oils, fats and lye into soap.
WHERE CAN I FIND YOUR SOAP?
You can order my soap online through this website,
by messaging me on social media, in person at the Eugene Saturday Market, the Whiteaker Community Market, & various pop up markets throughout the year
(see social media for updates on those locations!) or at these Eugene business:
Inspiring Alignments, The Kiva Grocery,
Down to Earth, Mountain Rose Herbs Aroma Bar & Trillium Clothing Store!
More locations coming soon!
DO YOU ACCEPT RETURNS?
I stand behind my soaps and have used them myself and on my family and friends for years. If you aren't completely happy, please send me a message via the
"Let's Connect" button at the top, through my email (email@example.com) or through social media (Instagram @chamomile_jane or Facebook @chamomilejane), and I will make sure to make it right in the form of a refund (minus shipping charges) or by sending you another bar to try out.
Only shiny, happy, cleanliness allowed here, ok? :)
WAS THAT YOUR SOAP AT THE RITZ AT
OREGON COUNTRY FAIR?
Yes! That was me! My soap bars were featured at concessions at the amazing
Ritz Sauna and Showers for the first time in 2022. Proud moment :) <3
See you next year!
