Vera True Essentials is a labor of love, born of the desire to create products for the bath, body and mind that are relaxing and accessible.
All products are "people-tested". That means that Vera True Essentials works hard to ensure the quality and care of every product we create. We are very conscious of what we share with you. The process of creating new products is very enjoyable. From start to finish we love thinking about new recipes - then blending quality carrier oils, butters, essential oils, minerals and botanicals to craft all sorts of treats that will make your self-care occasions special!
No "fancy-schmancy" here. In fact, the bar of soap that you select may look a bit "rustic". But it does what soap is supposed to do - it cleanses and smells oh so good! Each Vera True Essential product was crafted with a LOT of forethought, creativity, and loving attention to the details that really matter - ingredients that not only cleanse and nourish the skin, but delightful essential oil combinations that make you swoon with the promise of relaxation!
What is this marvelous creative process called soap-making? In
Vera True Essentials' very humble opinion, it is the REAL sweet science. Who would have thought that from SAPONIFICATION - the process of mixing water, alkali (lye or potash), fats, and a little this and that to make it extra special - would emerge something as fascinating as a REAL bar of soap? It's true, and it's a good thing! Good things should be shared, right? Right! But, before this beautiful thing called SOAP can be used (and shared...), it must undergo the process of CURING. This is the time it takes (from four to six weeks) to allow the saponification to complete where there is no trace of lye remaining, and to ensure that your bar of soap is ready to use, and that it lasts a long time as long as you take extra good care of it! As the saying goes, "all good things are worth the wait". Vera True Essentials - whether it is soap that patiently curing for several weeks, or oils that require time to be properly infused with the essence of botanicals before being incorporated into rich whipped butters, soaks, scrubs, or bath bombs, they are definitely #WORTHTHEWAIT !
