1. What's in the soaps of Hebe's Naturals and what's quality?
We only use premium virgin vegetable oils in soap production. Our products are not tested on animals. Soaps are scented by herbs and pure essential oils.
We do not use industrial / synthetic compounds to enhance lather, harden and emusify our soaps. We don't use any preservatives in our soaps.
Naturally, our soap bars and body washes create a creamy lather, gently clean, nourish and hydrate the skin. You will experience a luxury soaps, totally different to normal commercial soaps and shower gels from synthetic detergents in the market.
2. Is lye existing in your soaps?
Totally NOT! During the saponification, lye converts vegetable oils into soap and glycerine. When the saponification ends, lye does not exist in our final products which contain only soap, glycerine and vegetable oils as super fat to nourish the skin.
3. Why do your Body Washes have an oil layer on the top or residues on the bottom of bottles?
Our Body Washes are liquid soap (Refer to How we make soaps for more details) and we calculate a superfat ratio remained of Coconut oil, Olive oil during the production. The remained oils together with essential oils nourish the skin.
We do not use any synthetic emusifiers to make oils dissolve in water, therefore you see an oil layer on the top of bottles.
For the products with purees or herbal extracts such as Aloe vera gel or coffee, a layer of these added ingredients settle on the bottom of bottles. These ingredients are sterilized during production.
Customers can feel safe using our body washes when they are not expired. It's simply to shake the bottles before use.

Yes. Customer should keep the soap from entering your eyes. When soap get into your eyes, wash several times with clean water .
