Update: December 31, 2014, Wow! Thank you everyone, I had a very busy season leading up to the holidays. So much so that I have sold out of many soaps. I'm just now getting around to updating the website. I do have some soaps that are not listed on this page yet. To order from that list, for now, you'll have to just order a out of stock soap and in the notes section list which soap you'd like as a substitute.

Older news: You can follow the happenings of my workshop and what events I'll be attending by joining my facebook page. It's also an easy place to message me about negotating substitutions for your soap order. Sorry, life is full. I'm just not able to always have everything available.
Hope you get a chance to come visit the new shop space downtown Felton, or see my booth at the Downtown Santa Cruz Farmers Market when I return in February...



Garimo's Real Soap Studio & classroom/gallery/playroom

The new workshop space is allowing me to offer monthly Hands on Soap Making Classes. I'm hoping some of the past participants will write some reviews for me to post. I think I'm pretty organized and informative, and we've been turning out some nice soaps. When all is said and done, each participant gets to take away 9-10 bars of soap. The next class will in March. Class limit is 5. More info. also on the facebook page. But to register and reserve your space in the class advance payment will be needed. The Class is $75 for cash or check, or you can use Paypal and pay $80 that includes the service charge. To use Paypal use this button:

Individual bars of Soap cost $6.00 each (includes sales tax) or you can get five bars of any one kind for $25.00.
If you order 5 bars of different soaps, I'll add a 6th. free bar. Just write in your free soap choice in the 'special instructions' box when you're checking out and making the payment. On Sale bars do not count. Each bar weighs 4 ounces or slightly more. Each bar is wrapped in white tissue paper with a printed paper label.

Email or call Garimo at the message phone for the Real Soap Studio with any questions about placing orders or for information about the soaps.

This soap is great for people with sensitive skin conditions. The chlorophyl in the wheatgrass and the amino acids in the silk peptides are very nurturing and healing for irritated skin. There are no added fragrances that are often irritants. Try this soap if you have excema or other sensitive skin conditions. I think you'll like experiencing the moisturizing pure ingredients.

The following ~Good Basic~ Soap Bars are a great deal for a soap made with organic ingredients.
These bars are re-batched soap trimmings. I take the extra bits of all the soaps and grate into small pieces. Then they're wetted and cooked for 4-5 hours or longer at about 150-200 degrees. The heating lowers the PH a little more by forcing the soap through the saponification process a second time. There are different blends, sometimes floral, of herbal, or minty, or cinnamon spice. Using these soaps is kind'a like using all of the soaps at the same time.

Sometimes I'll add some herb or more essential oil when recooking. It's a good basic soap. These bars are larger than the others at 4.5 to 5 ounces. There are usually several kinds in stock. They're all great, not at all an inferior product, and it may just be my imagination, but I think they make even bigger sudz than the other bars.

The saponified oils are blended with organic herbs, seeds and oats, Green tea, Wheatgrass powder, Silk powder, Lavender flowers, Lemon peel, Cocoa powder, clays and minerals and whatever else is good for our skin and looks like it might be fun. Some soaps are unscented, but the others have only pure steamed extracted essential oils from herbs, spices and flowers. No synthetic fragrances are used. These Cold Processed soaps retain the natural glycerin. There are no artificial additives or toxic preservatives. The soaps contain Rosemary Oleoresin Extract as a protective anti-bacterial and anti-microbial.

Block of soap being cut into bars

The colorants are from natural mineral and plant sources. Some colors are the herbs themselves or from mined clays while others are the refined iron oxides that have mineral impurities removed. Regardless, all ingredients in the soaps are listed on the labels.
