Valerie and Brian Mosher – Shalebrook Handcrafted Soap

Description of Product: Shalebrook Handcrafted soap bars are created in a time honored process. Shalebrook handcrafted soap bars are created here on the Eastern Shore in Moser River, NS. Unlike commercial bars that consist mainly of detergents and chemicals that tend to strip the skin of their natural oils, our high quality ingredients include vegetable-based oils as well as lard and tallow, butters, clays, honey, tussah silk and other skin loving products. The ingredients for each soap batch we make are chosen for the individual properties that they each will pbring to the new bar of soap. Where possible we use local products such as dandelions, maple syrup, bladderwrack and plantago. Other ingredients come from as far away as Africa, Australia and the Dead Sea located between Jordan and Israel. The ingredients in each bar of soap are located on the packaging or on our website at www.shalebrooksoap.com.

Once the desired formula is calculated the soap is produced in one of three ways: hot process, cold process or cold process stove process. The finished soap is then poured into molds and allowed to harden. After coming out of the loaf mold, each bar is hand cut, air dried, cured and hand packaged.

Products: luxury bars, regular bars and specialty bars that are designed for problem skin, facial use and shampoos, and lip balms.

Other Ingredients: beeswax, lanolin, avocado butter, avocado iol, Cocoa butter, mango butter, Castor oil, Rose Hip Oil, Jojoba oil, Vitamin E oil, Spearmint, Peppermint, Rosemary, Calendula and Chamomile.
