IMPORTANT: Charcoal soap bars are designed for a job. Charcoal draws moisture and removes excess oil from skin. This makes charcoal bars useful for oily skin, poison ivy, or heavy duty cleaning on greasy hands. Charcoal soap bars SHOULD NOT be used on dry skin.

Charcoal soap bars are working bars so each of these are designed for a specific task. The Mechanic’s Bar has a combination of pure grapefruit, bergamot, and orange essential oils to cut grease and oil. We added cornmeal to this bar for scrubbing grit. This bar is a must-have for mechanics and tinkerers. Orange Clove Anise is fantastic at removing strong scent-stains from hands, such as that of live bait, butchering, and cleaning out animal coops and stalls. For a potent facial acne soap, Peppermint Charcoal bars are effective. The bamboo charcoal draws excess oil while the pure peppermint oil aids in cleansing the area of acne-causing bacteria. Unscented Charcoal bars are available for those whose skin will not tolerate essential oils yet needs the benefits of bamboo charcoal (excess oil, poison ivy, removing grease and oil).

Charcoal Soap Bar Instructions

> Store charcoal soap bars in a cool location out of direct sunlight. Keep them wrapped in wax paper or store them in your dresser drawers to scent your clothing.
> After use, put the soap bar on a soap deck and allow it to dry so it will last longer!
> Do not leave the soap bar in a puddle of water. Olive oil castile soap bars will not dry out in a puddle (which is one reason they are amazingly moisturizing).

The Story Behind Our Soap Bars

Our traditional olive oil castile soap bars are a recipe passed down from my mother, the original family soap-maker. When my youngest brother began breaking out in scaly, itchy rashes all over his body, the dermatologist-recommended soaps and creams did not work. After the expense and frustration of a series of failed trials, my mom began experimenting with soap recipes until she finally settled on a traditional olive oil castile soap base of saponified olive oil and water. Once satisfied with her recipe, she cleared the house of detergents, lotions, and store-bought soap bars. My brother’s breakouts ceased, dry skin disappeared, and our skin felt soft and moisturized. A year later, my mother founded Cadron Creek Soapworks llc to help support the family farm and share her soaps.

Fast forward eleven years: my own family is heartbroken over not being able to move back to our university jobs and apartment in China. Determined to stay home together with our littles, we set about building a business that would produce quality, comforting home goods amidst a global pandemic. After much experimentation, Nothing Less Than Home, LLC was born. We currently work together with my mom at Cadron Creek Soapworks llc to make smaller, vendor event-friendly bars to pair with our candles, wax melts, and oils.
