Jackie Wright, owner and maker at The Wright Soapery, creates cold-process, palm oilfree, artisan bath soaps. All her soaps are vegan (unless stated on the ingredient list), made by hand, from scratch, and produced in small batches.
We look forward to having The Wright Soapery at the Chicago Artisan Market on Sunday, September 22, 2019 from 10am-4pm at Morgan MFG (401 N. Morgan St.), along with top Chicago & Midwest artisans in food, fashion, home goods + art.
Lots of micromanaging goes into the soap but absolutely no palm oil, phthalates, paraffin, melt and pour soap bases, pre-made kits or unnecessary ingredients are used. Each bar of soap is 4oz to 4.5oz and is hand cut and wrapped.
The Wright Soapery formulates all of their recipes, choosing only the highest quality oils based on the skin-loving benefit it will add to the soaps. They scent the soaps with 100% pure, natural essential oils and/or high quality, phthalate-free fragrant oils. The soaps are colored with natural clays, oxides and/or micas.
The soaps are palm free, phthalate free, cruelty free, paraben free, formaldehyde free, petroleum free and sodium lauryl sulfate free (SLS).
• What is Cold Process Soap?
Cold process soap making is the combination of oils (fatty acids) with sodium hydroxide know as lye (base). This results in the chemical reaction known as saponification. A 4 to 6 week cure time is standard for cold process soap.
• Is Lye Used?
Yep – real soap is made with lye … there is no getting around that. However, when properly combined with the oils, no lye remains in the finished product.
• Why no Palm Oil?
Lots of research went into the oils used in the soaps, and before the first batch was even made, Jackie Wright was committed to being palm oil free after learning about the industry’s link to major issues such as deforestation, climate change and animal cruelty. All the soaps are made with food and cosmetic grade natural oils and butters, many which are organic.
Soap is the passion of The Wright Soapery and they are committed to providing you with the highest quality bath soaps that look and smell great, but most importantly feel great on your skin.
