LifeStone handcrafted soaps are much different than commercial soaps. In addition to using pure essential oils to scent our soaps, organic super-foods and naturally occurring clays to color our soaps- we also load up our soap with Shea butter and no palm oil is used there for our handmade soap is much softer and creamier, it is best to keep dry between uses. Our soaps have a luxurious creamy lather that nourishes and cleans the skin. After use it is best to leave on a drying dish and you may place the soap stone side down to prevent the soap from prematurely melting. Our soaps are hand cut and are all one of a kind treasures, with authentic gemstones from around the world, they last an average of 2 weeks to 1 month when used once a day. Once the soap is used up, you will reveal your gemstone in which to program with intention, carry it along with you as a reminder of your progress, goals and new habits. Handmade by Lifestone USA.
