These natural handmade soaps are made by a very sweet and knowledgable African Lady in Baltimore, MD. (But she’s online too!) We went to her shop in Arundel Mills Mall and told her I have dry skin and Alethea has oily skin. She told us what products would be best for us individually. We’ve been using these soaps now since March and love them. They are light and keep us smelling fresh. And they get really soapy unlike some other natural soaps. They’re inexpensive too! We’re going to be sad when we run out. Good thing we can buy online.
