BE CLEAN NATURALLY
A Little About Be Clean Naturally
Be Clean Naturally is all about soap made with love and 100% natural ingredients, prepared by hand in small batches.
They use only 100% pure essential oils when scenting their products and do not use dyes in their soaps. Some of the soaps do vary slightly in colour, which comes from the different oils used, the exfoliants, minerals or honey added.
Be Clean Naturally avoid packaging whenever possible. Their bar soaps do not come with any paper packaging, they are stamped with a handmade, hardwood stamp to identify them.

What Are Soaps?
Soaps are made from the chemical reaction called saponification that happens between a fatty acid and an alkaline. Some commonly used sources of fatty acids are vegetable oils and animal fats. Be Clean Naturally exclusively use vegetable oils. When making hard soaps sodium hydroxide, commonly called lye or caustic soda is used as the alkaline, and when making liquid soaps potassium hydroxide, another form of lye is used. Once the saponification process is complete there is no sodium or potassium hydroxide present in the finished soap. Soaps made with natural ingredients are biodegradable, not harmful to mother earth and help to nurture our bodies.
Most commercial soaps have fat from animal by-products. Animal fats tend to clog our pores whereas vegetable oils do not, and that is why Be Clean Naturally puts coconut butter in their natural essential oils concoction.
