    Olive wood soap dish - Elegant

    Proper soap on a beautiful wooden soap tray gives your bathroom a much more elegant touch than a plastic soap dispenser.

    Wood on the sink - is that possible?
    My soap dishes are made of beautifully crafted olive wood. This is genuine handicraft and high-quality material. My soap dish is hand carved from a piece of olive wood. Only worn-out trees that no longer bear fruit are used.

    With their modern shape, the soap trays are ideal for using solid soap or soap pieces. At the same time, holes at the bottom of the soap dishes provide the necessary ventilation, so that the moisture on the soap dish does not accumulate and the soap "floats" unnecessarily long in the water. The olive wood used stands out above all for its beautiful, warm colour. As a tasteful detail, the wood fits perfectly to any other bathroom furniture of any color.

    The natural olive wood not only looks beautiful, but also has antibacterial properties. With good care, olive wood can last almost a lifetime.

    Cleaning and care
    Remove soap or soap residues from the wood thoroughly. Wipe the soap tray with a mild cleaner and lukewarm water. Do the dry pat with a linen or kitchen towel.

    Since they use the wood soap dish in the bathroom, it is also recommended to rub the soap tray regularly with cooking oil (e..B. linseed oil). The oil absorbs into the wood and protects it naturally from too much moisture and moisture.

    About me
    All my products are handmade by me in very small batches in my studio in St. Gallen, Switzerland. My soap is cold process soap, which means that I make the recipe from scratch with full control over all ingredients. Each bar of soap matures for 4 to 6 weeks. This ensures that all water has evaporated and leads to a harder bar of soap that lasts longer.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Care instructions

    Tips to extend the life of your soap

    Place your soap in a bowl that will drain (not flat on the tile or in a non-draining bowl!) And make sure it doesn't get wet between uses. This is optional, but it will definitely help your soap last longer

    How long do your soaps mature?

    My soaps mature 4 to 6 weeks open on the shelf so that they can dry well. My pure olive oil soap needs to mature for at least 6 months or more.

    What do you use titanium dioxide for?

    I use titanium dioxide to lighten the soap, depending on the raw materials, the natural soap can be green, yellow or brown. In nature, titanium dioxide is widespread in the form of the minerals rutile and ilmenite (together with iron). Titanium dioxide is non-toxic and not harmful to water.

    Which soap for extremely dry skin?

    All of my natural soaps are suitable for dry skin. Milk soaps in particular are ideal for dry skin.

    PH of soaps, don't they dry out the skin?

    Definitely no. Natural soaps (please do not confuse them with industrial soaps) are always basic. The pH value is 8.5 - 10. This is absolutely harmless to our skin. Amniotic fluid. E.g. has a pH value of 8.5 and let's be honest, is there a more beautiful and softer skin than baby skin?

    What is NaOH?

    NaOH aka caustic soda or sodium hydroxide is an essential ingredient in soap production. Our lye is made from common table salt dissolved in water, and electrodes add electricity to the mixture, creating chloride, hydrogen and lye. This material has been used in natural soap production for centuries. When used correctly, it can help make safe natural products. However, according to European cosmetic laws, you will not find sodium hydroxide on our labels as it is not included in the end products.

    Can children use natural soaps?

    Yeah sure! Children in particular benefit from the mild cleaning and natural care

    Custom and personalized orders

    Yes, of course I can. Just contact me directly, then we can discuss it.

    Ja ich versende auch in andere Länder. Leider kann ich dies nicht kostenlos anbieten!

    Es können Zölle und Einfuhrgebühren fällig werden. Bitte informiert euch über die gesetzlichen Bedienungen in eurem Land.

    Where do your raw materials come from?

    It is very different. Raw materials such as rapeseed oil, sunflower oil, hemp oil, goat and sheep milk, honey, herbs and plants come from Switzerland.
    Well-known raw materials such as coconut oil, shea butter, babassu oil, olive oil, grape seed oil etc. are often very transparent and easily traceable (fair trade etc.) available from wholesalers in the respective country. I don't use palm oil.

    I try to avoid other raw materials or to reduce their consumption. Often I have to rely on my feelings. Transparency is important to me so that I and my customers can decide yes or no.
