Why do we use beer in our soaps?
The answer is simple really. We love Beer and Soap! Naturally it made sense to combine the two. It also just so happens that beer contains beneficial ingredients for your skin and hair. Beer is made up of hops, barley, malt and whatever herbs, fruits, spices and grains you choose to put in. Hops in itself are an amazing thing. Hops contain polyphenols which are thought to account for its anti-bacterial and preservative effects. Hops also contain skin -softening amino acids and are known for their relaxing properties. After making non beer soap and beer soap I can honestly say that beer soap has a much better lather.
The beer we use for our soaps we brew ourselves which allows us to use whichever malts, grains and extracts we want. We also support Maine Craft Breweries and make soap with their beers as well. If you are in Portland Maine by chance you can find our soaps at Rising Tide Brewery!
Our Beer Soaps have a slightly different look as the beer gives our bars a distinct color and rustic look. We scent all of our soaps naturally with essential oils and natural organic spices , extracts and colors. We also like to leave some soaps unscented and just compliment them with hues of the beer.
Thank you for your interest in our beer soaps. We hope that you enjoy them as much as we do.
