Simple beauty begins with clean, healthy skin and that's what Lora's Beauty is about. I focus on cold process soaps and shampoos made with quality oils and butters. Having experimented with less costly oils, I've found that you really do get what you pay for. Even though it's one of the more expensive oils, olive oil makes up almost half the oils used in my soaps. Cocoa butter, avocado butter, coconut oil, castor oil and rice bran oil are also prominently used; never palm oil and no synthetic fragrances. Sustainability is important too, I use only eco-friendly materials and organic when possible.
I'm often asked if my soap contains lye, so to answer this question I wrote a blog post about the chemical reaction used in making soap. It's a better read than it sounds and I recommend reading it here:
