Bill's Bees Handmade Beeswax Soap is completely handmade. The soaps are crafted from scratch starting with pure olive, coconut, and other skin nourishing oils, as well as cocoa butter and Bill's Bees pure, natural beeswax. No animal fats are used in our soaps. Our soaps are all vegetable oil based, with no artificial colors. Beeswax makes a harder, longer lasting, finer textured soap with an especially rich lather. Each soap has its own unique recipe and is aged for at least three weeks before being hand cut. This is old fashioned handmade cold process soap, retaining skin soothing glycerin which is created during the soap making reaction. We are proud to share this high quality product with our community.
