Hi,Robin I'm Robin & I'm obsessed with making all natural, healthy & beautiful handcrafted soaps. 

Skin issues are why I became interested in handcrafted soaps.  My husband was having terrible problems with his sensitive, diabetic skin.  Commercial soaps were drying and made our skin itch, especially in the winter months. We were in need of something better.

Research was an incredible eye opener.  Just the fact that I couldn't pronounce most of the ingredients listed on commercial soaps was a huge red flag.  I learned about the harsh detergents, synthetic derivatives, preservatives & other toxic ingredients including pesticides.  PESTICIDES??? 
Yes, Triclosan is a pesticide the soap industry uses in soaps and body care products to kill bacteria.  Are you aware that your skin absorbs 60% of what you put on it?  That's a scary thought!  No wonder our skin itched or would break out in rashes.

 There had to be a better, HEALTHIER alternative.  Even if you could find the pure and natural products, they were so very expensive.  Could I possibly create them myself? 

My husband's grandmother used to make the "Old Fashioned Homemade Lye Soap."  He talked of how soothing her soap was to his skin.  After much research & prayer, I took the leap of faith and made my first batch of cold process soap.  I nailed it and have been hooked since.
I found it amazing that a simple pot of oils could be transformed into beautiful soap.

I began to experiment with additional oils, butters, activated charcoal & other additives, learning the benefits obtained from each oneLogo until I was happy with my soap formula.

I gave soaps to my family and friends.  The response was awesome & they began to ask for more!  My family and friends are happy to try new products. They continue to support & encourage my business, "Robin's Nest Handcrafted Soaps." 
Soaps make fabulous gifts for men & women alike without breaking the bank!  Check them out!  What have you got to lose, besides healthier, younger looking skin?  Your skin will love you for it!
