The art of homemade soap has seen a revival in recent years as appreciation grows for artisan and hand made goods.
So the soap often also incorporates a natural skin care element so that the end result stands out from the mass-produced soap widely available today.
While you will pay more for it, than, for example, commercially available soaps at your local supermarket, it is a superior product.
Hand made soap also makes wonderful gifts.

READY TO USE ALL NATURAL SKIN CARE PRODUCTS
A really easy way to give Dead Sea Mud a try is this all natural Dead Sea Mud soap.
This is also a great way to give a unique, natural gift.
Tie it up with a cotton flannel, and some brightly colored raffia for a striking, eco-friendly effect.
Special Note: I use Amazon online to purchase ready to go products so I can maintain my natural skin care regime at all times, e.g travelling, working long hours, unable to get to the store... It is a good alternative without compromising my ideals.
