Hi! My name is Carolyn and I love to craft! I started making soap just for fun and to satisfy my urge to craft lavish gifts for family and friends. I thought everyone would love getting a nice luxurious bar of soap and guess what? They did!
My daughter started encouraging me and Lavish Luxuries was born! The other thing that made my decision easier was the wonderful change in my skin from using the soap! My daughter noticed the change to her skin as well. My husband and son won't use anything else. My friends love it! I even made soap to wash my dog with! My soap has been tested on my loved ones with positive results! So here I am with a web store and I am hoping you will love it too!

Have you ever noticed the labels on your favorite store bought soaps? I encourage you to do so. Most of them are not called soap. They are named Moisturizing Bar, or Beauty Bar, or Deodorizing Bar. It has to be soap before it can be called soap. Check it out the next time you go shopping! It is an eye-opener!
Above each soap base are listed, published benefits of that base.
Goat milk soap is my favorite! This is the reason: Cleopatra was known to have beautiful skin. Her secret was that she soaked in baths of fresh milk. During my research, I found that goat's milk has a ph level similar to that of our own skin. Also, it has lactic acid which is an alpha hydroxy acid. This is a natural exfoliant element that dissolves the glue that holds dead skin cells together. Milk can clean skin down to its deepest layers. Goat milk also has high amounts of protein, fat, iron, vitamins C, D, B and A.
Please check listed ingredients for each base for substances that you may be allergic to before ordering.

Shea Butter is believed to have many benefits. Shea butter has the presence of fatty acids, vitamins A, E and F. Shea butter penetrates the skin easily and does not clog the pores. It is tolerated well by those with very sensitive skin. It has been used for anti-aging products, sunscreens, lotions, soaps, stretch marks, chapped skin and lips. It is mind boggling at the products available with shea butter in them. Shea butter soap produces a soft, creamy lather.
*Shea Butter contains natural latex and it is essential that persons suffering from latex allergies should test any shea butter product before using it.

Glycerin is a clear liquid that absorbs water from the air. It is a humectant, drawing moisture to your skin. It is a natural byproduct of soap. It is actually present in the fat used to make soap. It is a great moisturizer and is extracted from soap commercially to be used in many other products such as cosmetics, lubricants, cake and candy making and even nitroglycerin to name a few. It is wonderful in soap and clear glycerin soap is wonderful to use. It doesn't leave a residue on your skin or the tub. It is gentle and wonderful to shave with. The lather is soft and silky.

It is very important to me that you enjoy Lavish Luxuries products. It is my goal to make you one of my regular customers. That is why I take pride in each batch of soap and bath product that I make. However, each batch is unique. Exact size, shape and pattern may vary from batch to batch.
Ordering: There is no minimum order. However, to be cost effective I recommend you order more than one item due to shipping cost. A couple of my customers order together and share shipping costs.
