Carley's Natural Shea Butter Soap - 8 half Bars

  • We are cutting the 4 bars in half. 
  • So many complained the bars were too big to handle. 
    So to be clear, you will get eight 1/2 bars of our natural soap. 
  • The best soap in the world!
  • No added scent or coloring
  • Melts right into your skin for the cleanest feeling clean!
  • This listing is for exactly eight 1/2 bars of soap. No free bar.
  • Bars will vary in size. Each 1/2 bar is approximately 4 ounces.  

Have you ever noticed sometimes the best things happen to you by accident?
Many years ago my wife and I were visiting a friend of ours who was an amateur Natural soap maker. She made all sorts of pretty soaps and I thought this was sort of silly. The more I talked to her the more I realized there might be something to all of this. She noticed my neck looked irritated and red. She thought it looked like a soap allergy and gave me a bar of her home made soap and asked me to try it one time. 

I had a constantly itchy scalp and bumps around my hair line and places on my body that I scratched almost until raw. And I had dealt with this problem for decades and thought this was just something to be tolerated. Never in a million years did I realize this was an allergy to store bought soaps. And if it was then why would another soap help my condition?

Of course as you might have imagined, her soap helped dramatically. I spent the next year refining her process, reading everything I could read and finally arriving at a formula that was considerably better than that first soap I tried. So much better that we call it the 'best soap in the world'. Well that was 10's of thousands of bars of soap ago. We buy our materials by the 55 gallon drum now and make a batches of 500 bars at a time. IT SELLS SO FAST, it's all we can do to make it fast enough. We always have drying racks filled with thousands of bars of our Natural soap. It's not a pretty soap. It only comes one way. No added smells, no added coloring. But ohhh is it good! It just melts into your skin. Your skin feels and is so clean after a shower, some tell us they no longer need to worry about how they smell all day.

Oh come on, now you're going to tell me my *OVE soap isn't good for me!?!?
The way we make real Natural soap, is a special treat.
Our secret slow process makes each bath a delightful experience.

Yes we make no claims for pretty. We didn't care what it looked like. We figured we'd just give a free bar with the treatment and get them to use it. NOT to put on display in the bathroom. What we wanted was an effective soap that could be used between treatments. That kept your skin clean and soft and smooth and refreshed.


It really doesn't have an odor. You just smell clean after using our soap. Sorry if you want a scent wear a perfume (or cologne). You just can't believe the compromises you have to make to have a soap smell. Most 'natural' soap makers don't even use natural scents. I decided to make a really good soap it would be unscented. 


WOW does it ever! You know how you have to lather up a wash cloth 2 or 3 times with the soap you're now using to get all your body clean? One time is usually all you need to wash your whole body with our soap. It lathers like crazy! And your skin feels wonderful! AND you know how many people throw out those other bars when they about a third or a quarter gone, because they don't lather anymore (mainly because commercial soap is squeezed so hard almost all of the natural glycerin deep inside the bar is gone), well not with our soap. USE IT RIGHT DOWN TO THE LAST BIT. And it still lathers like crazy.

We found out why those 'pretty' soaps didn't feel so good to use. There are ways to speed up the process of making Natural soap. These other guys can make it start to finish in 2 to 3 weeks. We discovered, through experimentation, with the process and the ingredients that we could actually slow the process down. This made an even better soap. Our soap takes a full 2 MONTHS cure!

Why use this soap?

People with challenged skin, broken out skin and with other skin problems like Acne, Dermatitis and Eczema are making their skin worse by using store bought soaps.

What else is wrong with them?


I thought ANTI-BACTERIAL was good for me?

For one thing, these chemicals (drugs) really don't work that well. (are bacteria disappearing? I DON'T THINK SO!) But what they do well is build up bacteria's resistance to these chemicals to the point that when we really need these chemicals (drugs) to save our life, they won't work. NOT GOOD!
These chemicals actually make Acne challenged skin worse.

What about long term use of these detergents & anti-bacterials?

When I was a teen (35 years ago), it seemed that most people outgrew acne by the time they were an adult. MSNBC recently reported that 45% of adults now suffer from acne and other similar skin problems. Can this be related? No one knows for sure. But I think so. 

What about these so called Low pH soaps? Wouldn't they be better for my skin?
A lot of people don't really understand pH. pH is a measurement of a products acidity. Low pH means Acidic. High pH means Base. 7 is considered neutral. Right now it is a catchword in advertising to sell low pH soaps and cleansers. But fads are sometimes just that... fads. Low pH soaps such as what Dove sells won't make your skin feel any better than our higher pH Natural soap. In fact, most people are amazed at how wonderful our soap makes their skin feel. This is because it truly gets the skin clean. Low pH soaps don't properly clean your skin. Leaving embedded dirt particles, which serve as hiding places for the bacteria that causes acne and other skin problems. Fighting skin problems is a process that must include keeping the skin meticulously clean.

OK, so what's in your soap?
Soap. It's real saponified soap made from oils like soap used to be made (Coconut, Olive, Soybean and Rice Bran Oils - no animal ingredients). But the old fashioned soap was harsh. 75 years ago when grandma made soap with basically lard and lye, she didn't know how to fine tune the ingredients. She just threw in a handful of this and a handful of that. Our soap's all vegetable -high quality- ingredients are tested, high tech and carefully crafted down to measurements in the +- .001 range. That makes this soap refreshing to use. Your skin feels soft and clean and wonderful. It's hard to explain the difference until you've tried it. 

How is it made?

We hand mix all the natural ingredients in special stainless steel tanks heated to a specific temperature. They are combined at precise temperatures and then poured into large molds. After a few days, our soap is then solid enough to be hand cut from these large blocks into bars. We then air dry our soap for about 2 months. This extra drying time mellows the soap. As you can see, it is very time and labor consuming. But we feel this very special soap is worth the effort.

What does it look like?

Not too good looking. It is not spit out of a machine. Each bar is unique and since we don't use any dyes to color it or high pressure to mold it, it can be ugly. OK it is ugly. Who cares?

What else is in it? 
We use two EXOTIC BUTTERS as skin emollients. natural SHEA BUTTER (from West Africa) and MANGO BUTTER (from India). We also use APRICOT KERNAL OIL and CASTOR OIL, which are wonderful emollients. When we tell you your skin will feel wonderful after using, along with our finely crafted natural soap, these emollients are part of the reason why. Most experts agree, these are the best skin softeners and emollients available today. Way too expensive for most soap companies, though. 

Will this make my skin greasy? All those oils, butters?
No, in fact this will help balance your skins oil production. It's a common misconception. Products that strip oils out of your skin, signals the skin to start producing more oil. Besides, our Natural soap does not feel oily.


The details about our natural soap:
In order of prominence (exact percentages are top secret, even our employees don't know) we use
1. Coconut oil,
2. Soybean oil
3. Rice Bran oil
4. Olive oil(most soap makers use Pomice grade, we use the Pure grade, which is one step higher and without a chemical component)
5. The above oils are converted to soap by use of Reverse Osmosis purified water and sodium hydroxide(also known as soda ash or lye- which is derived from salt,- this ingredient does not remain in the finished soap, it's considered a catalyst which means it facilitates the changing of oil to soap). As the soap cures most of the water evaporates. This is a process called saponification. This is how natural soap has been made for centuries until mankind got too smart for its own good. Our soap is made the olde world way, except we use expensive, precise scales measured three decimal places to make our soap consistently perfect every time. BTW-All soap has to be made with a catalyst. Artificial soaps such as shampoos use acids to convert the oils, such as hydrochloric acid.

We also add skin softening ingredients(emollients):
6. Natural Shea butter(a special not processed version we buy direct from Africa),
7. Castor oil.
8. Apricot Kernel oil

Most natural soaps are shipped within 2 to 3 weeks of being made. We use a special unique process that slows the curing of the soap. This makes our soap special, but means it takes almost 2 months to cure. That gives us the ability to add double the amount of skin softening ingredients (like the shea) than other soaps. So rather than drying out your skin, our soap moisturizers the skin without making it oily.

Why is the type of water we use important? The very first time I saw our natural soap being made with Reverse Osmosis purified water I was astounded at the looks of the product as it was mixed. It seemed so much more creamy. The finished natural soap was far superior. Some soap makers use steam distilled water(it is pure). But the problem with this type of water is it is too acidic and somewhat counteracts the cleaning effects of the natural soap.

The other difference is that we don't use fragrances (which are artificially derived). Our natural soap is unscented. There have been studies that support my belief that artificial fragrances are harmful and affect the immune system. I personally can't stand those smells.

The next difference is stabilization. If go into Whole Foods or any health food store and look at the natural soaps they sell. They have a long shelf life and will not change in any way or discolor. I will tell you that there are chemicals added to perform this feat. So most natural soap isn't really natural soap at all. Our natural soap does discolor and get ugly. Although I've never seen a bar go bad. In fact I like the old ugly bars.
We believe this is the finest soap available anywhere.

We have customers who use this soap all over the world. From mainland China to every state in the USA to just about every country in the world. Tens of thousands love this soap. Many take it on vacations and leave the awful hotel soap untouched. We have a group of missionaries in the Amazon jungle who 'treat'  themselves to this soap whenever they can wash. We have soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq who tell us nothing cuts the grime better. A bar of our soap is kept under lock and key and guarded as a precious object there. Enjoy!

Hello again Carley's! I'm back for my 6-month order of your marvelous soap! This time, it is 5 orders of 4 bars for $80. Same great product at the same price! I wouldn't use any other for my whole family! I even have my sister-in-laws hooked on your soap. I would give it 10 stars if I could! :) See you again in six months!

This is THE BEST thing you can do for "problem" skin. I say "problem" because I think the problem is actually all the garbage we're being sold to put on our skin! I have tried EVERYTHING. I am 34 with painful cystic acne and Carleys' soap feels so soothing. Instantly soft and NO PAIN! I'm ordering four more bars :) Thank you, my face feels so good!

I really can't say enough about this soap. My first time trying it over 7 yrs ago I was amazed how I had just washed my face with "soap" and my skin didn't feel tight and dry like any other face wash I had ever used. I was hooked. I replaced my everyday body wash with it and haven't turned back since! I literally wont use any soap on my skin at all if I don't have Carley's soap. It's amazing for your face, body, shaving, babies, sensitive skin...I share it every chance I get. Even though it says $5 a bar I have never paid that with the 1 free bar with every item and the 5 bars for $25. I spend $60 on a 6 month supply of bar soap for face and body wash, face and body moisturizer and acne scrub. You probably couldn't do that buying your products at the dollar store. And not to mention CARLEY'S IS TOXIC FREE, HIGH QUALITY PRODUCTS THAT WORK! I feel like every woman needs to know about Carley's!

I love the natural soap bar because not only does it help keep my face clear, but it also helps to quickly clear up the stress induced atopic dermatitis I get on wrist and in my joints.

Excellent soap! My son has excema and I have acne. This soap cured both! The only thing I miss is that it used to have a lovely natural citrusy smell. Apparently the natural fragrance ingredients were removed. I miss the the fragrance, but I still buy 4 orders of 5 bars every six months (20 bars) for $80 with 25% discount. It lasts 6 months for my family of 4. My hubby is a TV journalist that wears as much make up as I do daily to anchor his 2 weeknight shows. We both use Mac makeup and this soap washes it off clean as a whistle with no breakouts. This is my second high volume order and that's really saying something in this economy when we're all trying to cut back! See ya in 6 months!

I love this soap! It lathers up with lots and lots of bubbles, then rinses clear and leaves your skin squeaky clean. After you dry off your skin is soft! I highly recommend it!

This is wonderful soap. It's gentle to use on my acne prone skin and has helped reduce irritation. It's also useful down to the very last bits---when a bar gets too small to use comfortably, get both it and a new bar wet and mush them together---it'll stick together and you won't have to waste anything. And they aren't joking when they say it lasts a long time---my last order of 12 bars has lasted 14 months, with two people using it once or twice daily. Also, since it's solid this soap is easy to travel with (no liquids to escape or exceed volume limitations for air travel); just wrap it in a bit of plastic wrap and go. This stuff is worth it!

This is my favorite soap EVER. I've been using it for years and the 5 bars really do last a long time. I can't use anything else or I feel grimy. Even though this soap isn't specifically for acne, it's done wonders for my skin. I had been prone to breakouts for years, especially around my time of the month, and now I sometimes breakout around that time of the month but it's tamed with the soap. I love it. I really just can't express how amazing this soap is for me. I can't go a day without it!! A+++++++++++++++ a million thanks! ~CS~

This is a sent me your soap as a freebie with an order of the cleanser. My skin just GLOWS with this soap, I've let myself just about run out before reordering...silly me! To be honest, I''m always looking for something "better"...always. Even after I discovered your soap I still continued to piddle around with other products, then wonder why my skin is problematic. Go figure. I've found that your soap is the ONLY facial cleanser that leaves my skin soft & supple & beautiful. Can''t wait to get my new order. I should be ordering more for Christmas gifts! Take care!

Dear Clear and Smooth, I just wanted to thank you. I have used your soap for a couple of years and it is one of those luxuries from home that I just love! My husband and I are missionaries in Guatemala. Sometimes it is the little things, like really nice soap, that can make a difference... I appreciate you and your company. Keep up the good work. With appreciation, Carol
