About Candy Rose

I began soapmaking back in 2012.  At the time I had just finished teaching Temari, the Japanese art of embroidering a covered ball, and was wondering what to do next. 
"Make something people can use."  

"Like what?" I asked.  

"Soap, why not make soap, it's something people use and will need to replace," came the reply

Visualising a regular square, no nonsense bar of soap I thought, why on earth would I want to make soap . .  boooring!!  However, checking out soapmaking on the internet I was amazed, and inspired! Boring?  No, No, No. Beeeuutful soaps, all the colours of the rainbow, and the most amazing designs and patterns.  I was sold, this I just had to do and began with the simple method of melt and pour soap bases before going on to making soap from scratch. 

Offering any of my  products to friends and customers, I always made a point of trying them out on myself first. One really psotive result to come from doing this was that I  found my psoriasis and eczema that I had been plagued with for years simply disappeared!  It was then I realised, no chemicals. nothing to irritate my skin! 

So, need I say that you will not find anything in the way of  SLS or parabens, silicones or any other type of chemical in my products.   I was surprised to discover that Lush uses SLS (Soldium Laural Sulphate) in virtually all of their products, crazy! 

If you're wondering what is wrong with using SLS in products, I have written under "Did You Know" a little about SLS (Sodium Laurel Sulphate).

I've been selling my soaps and shampoo's for a while now and the feedback continues to be positive. Not only does it make my customers hair feel better than it has for years, and reduces hair loss, but from those with skin problems I've been told that their dandruff, eczema,  posiasis and dermatitis etc,  have disappeared, which is great news.  However, I would like to add that stress can cause eczema and psoriasis etc wihich can certainly be soothed by natural products, but it is the source of the stress you will  need to tackle to rid yourself of these skin conditions..
