The quality of our ingredients is fundamental to what we do at You're Gorgeous Handmade Soap. The interest in the benefits that these ingredients can impart is why we became involved in the manufacture of natural handmade soap and bath products in the first place. The natural world has so much to offer and more and more amazing natural ingredients are being discovered and appreciated for their qualities all the time.
It's important to know what the products we use every day contain and we would like to inform our customers as to why we choose particular ingredients, and what their benefits are. Below you will find a list of our most used ingredients and their qualities.

To add more scope to our design and the types of products we can supply, we also offer products made with our all-natural ingredients, but with the addition of some gentle semi-synthetic and synthetic additives. We use mineral pigments for colour and some cosmetic dyes and glitters in very small quantities. We also have a wonderful range of amazing high quality fragrances and perfumes which we use in some of our special soaps and in our bath products. With these additions, our products are still over 95% natural. If you prefer 100% natural, just mention this to us and we will guide you to the relevant products.
