About Algarve Soap

Hi, my name is Lucia. Welcome to AlgarveSoap!

Today our shop offers a small collection of natural soap bars handcrafted from oils and butters of a highest quality. There are no artificial foaming agents, conservatives, or animal fats among ingredients. Algarve soaps are made in small batches using cold process method. That allows us to work from scratch applying our own recipes and to create luxury soaps, excellent natural moisturizers and emollients. Algarvian olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, and castor oil are the base ingredients in our soaps that ensures their richness in vitamins and necessary minerals, nice lather and bubbles, hardness and great cleansing. Essential oils and fragrances that are free of parabens and phthalates give smooth and pleasant scents. When batches are cut, soaps remain untouched for 6-8 week period of curing. After curing they are hand packed and are ready for use. Each soap bar weights around 130-140 g. Feel free to cut it in half for your convenience. Let´s also not forget that sharing is caring:)

It all started a few years ago when my son and I wanted to be creative on Christmas. Rather than buying gifts for our friends and family we decided to surprise them with our handmade natural soaps. This was one of the most interesting and exciting home projects that Vasyl and I had together since long time. And we couldn't even imagine then how inspired we would get after all the great feedback received. We immersed in soapmaking. It was hard, time consuming, but fun at the same time. Soap pieces were everywhere. Our apartment smelled like a garden in the Spring. Vasyl jokes that the good soap is the one that you want to bite. After one Summer spent on the street market in the Algarve, we decided to start our online shop. Here we offer our most "eatable soaps" (joking of course) for everyone who enjoys handcraft and natural products. We named our soap AlgarveSoap, because that´s the sunny Algarve where it all began and that´s the best Algarvian olive oil that is in the heart of every soap bar.
