Soap for Spring!
Spring 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 most 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 summer day!
Aloe Extra Premium Soap™ contains aloe vera gel, aloe vera oil, and aloe vera blossoms.
This aloe vera trifecta is unscented to be mild enough for all types of sensitive skin.
Each bar of L-Lysine Philanthropic Soap™ contains 160 mg of the essential amino acid L-Lysine.
Additionally, L-Lysine Philanthropic Soap™ contains lemon balm (Melissa officinalis), carrageenan from red seaweed (Palmaria palmata),
and dragon's blood (Dracaena draco) essential oil. Use this gentle soap when bathing to cleanse the entire body and leave skin soft.
Only Lavender Premium Soap™ brilliantly incorporates dried organic lavender flowers for texture and
organic lavender essential oil for scent. Abounding with organic lavender, Only Lavender Premium Soap™ is pleasing on a daily basis,
and is a blessing to anyone who loves fresh lavender.

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:
