Specialty Soap

  • Soap for Winter!
    Winter weather can leave delicate skin dry, itchy, cracked, and chapped.  All soaps crafted by Pallas Athene Soap contain glycerin (a natural humectant) to prevent dry skin and they all contain natural antioxidant vitamins E, C, & A to help prevent cellular damage to skin from free radicals.  Aloe Extra, L-Lysine Philanthropic Soap™, and Only Lavender handmade natural soaps are a great way to start a winter day!

Chart of Saponification Values for Making Soap!

Our chart of saponification values (for determining the amount of lye needed to make soap) is one of the most accurate on the Internet. This project involved contacting dozens of oil distributors and processors in 2006 and averaging the true SAP values before calculating the saponification values for lye (sodium hydroxide). The chart of saponification values, along with a brief explanation of terms and calculations, may be found on the Certified Lye™ website: Chart of Saponification Values.
