Frequently Asked Questions
Have questions regarding our products? We understand. Here are a handful of FAQs we have answered to help educate you about our business and products.
Are bath bombs safe for kids?
Yes, as long as the bath bombs are made from natural ingredients. All of La Savonnerie Divine’s products are made from natural ingredients like coconut oil, palm oil, cocoa butter, and shea butter. These ingredients are known for their natural moisturizing capabilities. You can expect our bath bombs to care for your children’s skin no matter how sensitive.
Do bath bombs expire?
In a way, yes. The longer you wait to use your bath bombs, the less fizzy and scented they become. As time goes on, the natural ingredients such as the oils evaporate. When these ingredients disappear, the bath bomb doesn’t work like it was designed. We recommend using our bath bombs within three months of purchasing.
What is glycerin soap?
Glycerin is made from plant-based oils and is completely natural. Glycerin soap does not contain any alcohol, harsh chemicals, or synthetic fragrances that may upset the skin. All of La Savonnerie Divine’s soap products are handmade using glycerin.
Many doctors recommend glycerin soap for those with dry skin conditions like acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Instead of stripping the skin of natural oils and nutrients, glycerin soap locks in moisture to promote healthy skin.
How is La Savonnerie Divine's soap made?
The handmade soap at La Savonnerie Divine is like handmade soap you can make at home. We use the same process to know the soap is safe and meets the quality we expect.
In general, soap is made from a mix of fat or oil and an alkali. Alkali is an ionic salt of an alkali metal, which dissolves in water. Handsoap uses an alkali known as lye, also known as sodium hydroxide.
By itself, lye is corrosive and can irritate the skin. However, making handmade soap eliminates the presence of lye with a process known as saponification. This occurs when lye is added to water and then mixed with oils or fats. As the substances emulsify, the substance will thicken, and the fat or oil is converted into soap.
From there, we pour the mixture into appropriate molds and let them harden. It isn’t until the soap is done hardening we start to turn them into delicious-looking bath treats.
Is La Savonnerie Divine cruelty-free?
Yes, none of our products are tested on animals. We believe in the care and sustainability of the environment, including its many inhabitants. Expect only the most ethically-sourced and tested soap treats from La Savonnerie Divine.
