Yes. Glycerin is a natural component of the oils used to make soaps. It is produced naturally during the saponification process (The chemical process that makes soap). Glycerin is naturally a hygroscopic compound which means that it absorbs water from the air which in soaps, makes it a natural emollient.
Essential oils are pure and natural extracts that come from plants. They are commonly used for adding fragrance to products. Fragrance oils are artificial alternatives for essential oils.
Essential Oils are great if you are looking for an natural scented soap like Peppermint or Rosemary but if you are looking for a fun and silly scented soap like “Cotton Candy” or “Banana Nut Bread” then you want a soap with fragrance oil. There are thousands of different aromas that can be made with fragrance oils and only a handful of fragrances that can come from essential oils. It is important to read the ingredient lists of the products so you know what kind of oil is used to scent the product. It will say "Essential or Fragrance oil"
Sodium Hydroxide, also known as Lye is one of the most important ingredients in soap making because without it, you cannot make soap. Soap is created by a chemical reaction between water, oils and sodium hydroxide, that reaction is called saponification. Don’t worry, no sodium hydroxide is left in a finished bar of soap!
Curing is basically allowing the water content in the soaps to dehydrate from the bars. The longer they cure the longer they last. All soaps are cut and left to "cure" on a rack for 4-6 weeks before being labeled and sold.
Because the soaps are handcrafted with extra skin loving oils and the least amount of chemicals as possible, it is important to make sure that the soaps are stored in a dry place when not in use.
Removing the soap from the shower after use is a great way to prolong the lifespan of the soaps. Humidity is also a soap killer so keep them out of humid areas.
Once the soap loaf is ready to be cut, each loaf is cut by hand with a blade, and a wooden guide one bar at a time until all bars are cut. They could also be cut with a hand cutter made with steel wire.
Then they are placed on a rack to “Cure” for 4-6 weeks. I do not use any machines to cut the soaps. The bars are not perfect which is another reason they are unique. All bars are weighed to make sure they are 4 ounces or more to be sold. All bars are sold at a Net Weight of 4 ounces. Some bars will be slightly bigger then others but never under 4 ounces.
Most of the Bath Bombs contain natural clay and other natural additives which causes the bombs to crack when they go through the drying process. Think of a river bed or a pond when it dries up. the natural cracking in the silt. This is normal. The bath bombs are not broken.
Wicked Waters Bath Bombs also do not contain any unnecessary chemicals that are commonly used in many factory-made bath bombs to keep them from cracking when drying.
Wicked Waters Bath Bombs are luxury products & made without large amounts of fragrance. They are great for people to enjoy who have sensitivities towards strong fragrances. They are also mild in scent to create a more relaxing experience without an overwhelming aroma. If the bath bomb seems to be scentless when it is dry, the fragrance does come alive more when it is submerged in warm water.
Wicked Waters makes bath bombs with Essential Oils as well as Fragrance Oils. All bath bombs made with Essential Oils are found in the Serenity Collection. Wicked Waters does make bath bombs that do carry a stronger scent than others but that is due to the nature of the oils used. For Example; Peppermint oil and Eucalyptus oil carry a stronger fragrance then Lemon Oil.
Wicked Waters Sugar Scrubs and Salt Scrubs are made without preservatives. It is important that you keep water out of the jars at all times. Use a dry spoon to scoop out a desired amount from the jar before use. Do not use fingers, especially wet fingers to scoop out the scrub. The water inside the jar can cause the scrub to expire. Water can cause mold to form within the jar. Do not continue to use the scrub if mold forms in the jar. Expose of the product and jar appropriately.
All Wicked Waters soaps are made in small batches from scratch. Every batch will look different due to being handmade. Swirls, patterns and exact shades of colors may vary.
The ingredients will still be the same.
There is absolutely no animal testing in any of the products. All of the products are tested by family and friends.
All Custom Orders go into production as soon as payment is placed and the order is finalized.
It takes 5 weeks to make, cure, label and ship the soaps so we need at least 5 weeks processing time before they are needed by the customer.

If you are in search of a soap that is completely free from all artificial ingredients, choose a soap that is scentless or scented with essential oils for those are natural. Fragrance oils are artificial alternatives for essential oils. You also need to look for a soap that is colored with natural herbs, dried vegetables, coffee, cocoa powder, activated charcoal or clay. You will find many options in the Serenity Collection
Mica is a general term for a collection of natural Earth minerals that are mined, purified and ground up into fine powders. Some mica’s are also man-made and created in a lab. Micas are often combined with oxides and pigments to create bright and vibrant colors which are the reason they are considered artificial. Pigments and Oxides are considered “nature identical” which means they are exactly the same chemical structure as the minerals found in the Earth but they are created in a lab to guarantee purity. Because they are created in a lab, they are considered artificial even though they are constructed from minerals. Micas are in fact, plastic-free as well as environmentally friendly so no oceans are harmed.
Handcrafted is when the product is made by hand.
None of my products are made with any kind of machinery except for a small hand blender to blend the ingredients. A lot of patience and love also goes into each batch. Many people love handcrafted soaps because they are high quality and the ingredient list is understandable to read. All soaps are made in small batches as well (15 bars of soap per batch). Once the soap is ready to be cut, each loaf is cut by hand, then they are placed on a rack to “Cure” for 4-6 weeks.
All soaps are labeled with labels that I make and cut one by one. Each label is hole punched and tied on the soaps with natural twine. Each label is specially made for each kind of soap.
Custom labels are made for custom orders.
All Wicked Waters soaps and other products are made in small batches. Some batches are seasonal, or limited addition. Once the batch is sold, it is rarely remade unless it is requested for remake in a custom order. A new and different batch of seasonal or limited addition soap is then made in its place. If you fall in love with a specific soap, you can email me, and I can see what I can do about bringing it back again or you can order it as a custom soap order.
The usual collections are here to stay for the most part. These collections include The Wicked Waters Classics, Men's Collection and The Serenity Collection. If a soap is out of stock in these collections, usually it is going to be available soon.
