Our natural soaps are handmade according to the cold process method. This means that you mix vegetable oils and butters with lye. Lye is a mixture of water with sodium hydroxide. During the mixing process all ingredients are saponified. This is called the saponification process. After 6 weeks of drying, the saponification is complete. The sodium hydroxide has now completely disappeared. The great thing is that natural glycerine is created during the saponification process. This is naturally present in every piece of cold process soap from DAY 1.
The soap is made and cut by hand, so no soap is the same and the weight can vary.
Martijn & Katjana developed the range when one of their children developed allergies to most bath and shower products. This was in 2019. Our office is in Amsterdam. The workshop is in Heemstede.
DAY 1 stands for innovation and sticking to it. Something you do for the first time is always exciting! The best thing there is to start on that first day with an open mind and entrepreneurial spirit. Make every day a DAY 1.
Good things start on DAY 1.
