My name is Irena and I am the owner of Ginger's Garden. I am a Master Soapmaker and Bath & Body Formulator. I am a Herbalist, Licensed Esthetician and Aromatherapist with over 25 years of experience. I started making soaps in 1969 under my mother's supervision. Before that I watched my mother and grandmother make soap from a distance. They made handmade soaps the old fashioned way, in a kettle, with a wooden soap mold that was lined with damp, close woven cloth. The methods have changed from my grandmother's time, but the oils and herbs are still natural. My handmade soaps are made with quality natural ingredients that are kinder and gentler to your skin. Soap makes its own glycerin during the soapmaking process. All my soaps are also superfatted at 7-8%. This creates a bar that will not strip the skin. Handmade soaps are such a wonderful way to pamper your skin and body at a reasonable price. Each handmade soap is made with the cold process method and is made from scratch. Most of my artisan soaps are not gelled or cooked and each batch is cured for at least 4-6 weeks. This creates a harder, milder soap as the water evaporates. My soaps do not contain any synthetic detergents and they are not tested on animals. My lip balms are soothing for your lips. My lotions and creams are made with natural and/or organic ingredients. For your safety, I use a parabens free preservative at less than 0.01%. Lotions without a preservative that contain any water create a perfect breeding ground for germs, mold and bacteria; even the ones that you cannot see. My shower gels and body washes are made with organic ingredients Like aloe vera and aromatherapy essential oils. I can add a color or a fragrance if desired. Whether you need some soap, bath or body pampering for yourself, buy a unique birthday gift, a present for the mother to be or her baby or a shaving cream soap for the wet shaver.
