Here at the Granville Island Soap Gallery we make a variety of soaps. Everything from delicious looking soap cakes and donuts which drive our quests happy with their style to MY personal favorites which are the ones in the "Rustic Series" line which I have pictured below. All handmade using only olive oil, palm oil,coconut oils along with some silk protein and various other natural oils and organics.
I absolutely LOVE our "Lavender and Malba Flower" soap as well as our "Lemongrass and Oatmeal" and lastly our "Mint and Chocolate" soap is pretty darn popular..just don't eat it.
A good question that I got from someone was "why would I use a glycerine soap over a traditional soap?"
and my answer is "usually a glycerine based soap would be a very gentle option and one with a goatsmilk component would be ideal but because we hand make our traditional soaps using only gentle and luxury oils and during the process we incorporate the glycerine (which is a bi-product of the soapmaking process) back into the soap instead of skimming it off like a commercial soap maker would. Either way it would depend on the tolerance level or likes/dislikes of the essential oils added to the soaps at time of making.
I have a list of things that are relatively inexpensive that if you have....you are a rich person and they are:
1. good wine
.....and good soap!
all these things are consumables for sure but I have to say that even while a good bar of soap may seem expensive at the time it will far and away outlast all of the items from one to five as you will use it dozens of times and enjoy the experience every time you use it.
come on in and see us!!
