Century Old Family of Natural Handcrafted Handmade Artisan Soap
Santa Lucia Borba (Elise's Grandmother) was a farmer's daughter from Murari's Borba, born in Italy 1904 . She moved to Brazil in 1917 from her home in Tuscany, Italy where she had to learn to (make soap from scratch) and essential oils from the plants out of necessity. After years of making soap for her 13 children, her family finally convinced her to open a small soap shop in Sao Paulo Brazil where she made soaps with her family for 25 years, those soap recipes found there way to North Carolina last year when I went back to Brazil for Christmas and asked grandmother for food recipes to bring back to North Carolina . While looking through boxes of recipes we came across all her old soap and essential oil recipes.

These completely natural Artisan soaps contain no artificial colors , all out goats milk, cow milk, and buttermilk all come from our local farm, " Cant get much fresher than that"
100% all Natural Dead Sea Mud is extracted from the Dead Sea in Jordan. It contains a high amount of minerals and salts, minerals that the skin needs in order to help it remain hydrated and healthy. This high concentration of minerals and salts are due to the Dead Sea evaporating every year as long as it is not connected to other bodies of water. The salts and minerals which are present in the water in high amounts are absorbed into the mud which lies at the bottom of the sea. This mud is extracted and the impurities are removed. It is then packaged and sold. The minerals that help the skin maintain the correct moisture levels are magnesium, calcium, potassium, sodium and bromine.
