Are your soaps vegan?

Natural Lotus Farm Soaps are an alkali mixed with of 100% vegetable oils ( no canola oil). I recommend reading the ingredients care if you have allergies to certain oils. If you have dry skin I recommend a Shea Butter to use after soaping. If your skin is oily or combination I still recommend a Shea Butter after use.



Also, our soaps are 100% kosher. 

Yes all Natural Lotus Farm Soaps are vegan, no animal products or fats added. 


If you are using natural soaps for the first time you may experience the detox phase!


What is Detox Phase for people with acne or skin problems ?


When your face or body starts to release built up toxins inside of your pores. Please do not use cover up make when going through this phase.  Allow your pores to breath and apply a light oil such as Aragon or a Creamy Shea Cream. 



Does your soap contain lye?

 We properly cure our soaps before they are considered useable. No lye remains in the soap that has been properly made.

If you are asking if Natural Lotus Farm uses 

lye (sodium hydroxide) to make soap?

-Yes, all Natural Lotus Farm Soaps are made with lye. 



Any soap made without lye is not soap, it is a detergent.

Our saponification process uses the correct amount of lye for each particular oil. 

You can not make soap without lye.

Without lye the soap will be chunky clumps of oil floating in water.

“Complete Dove Ingredients Review and Toxicity:

Sodium Lauroyl Isethionate: Danger:

is a synthetic detergent. Nothing natural in it!

  • Sodium lauroyl isethionate can pose skin irritation depending on the individual’s suseptibility and concentration used.  However, it is considered to be, generally, a milder option.
  • Sodium lauroyl isethionate is created by combining fatty acids with isethionic acid. Isethionic acid is created by combining sodium bisulfite in an aqueous solution and ethylene oxide.  Ethylene oxide is a known carcinogen. Traces of ethylene oxide can remain in the product, along with carcinogenic 1,4-dioxane.

Stearic Acid: OK

Is a surfactant naturaly present in some vegetal oils.

Sodium Tallowate: Danger and animal fat

Fat from animals…pigs, cows, sheep, even cats and dogs from euthanized in animal shelters. Fat is where toxins are stored, and fat from factory farmd animals means that their fat is full of pesticides and other residues from genetically modified corn and soy they were fed.

Lauric Acid: OK

Is a naturally occuring fatty acid common in coconut oil

Sodium Stearate: Bad for environment

Suspected to be an environmental hazard

Cocamidopropyl Betain or Sodium C14 C16:

Sodium cocoate  is from coconut oil…

Sodium palm kernealate is from palm oil…and is a real desaster for environment and present absolutely no benefits for your skin…this oil is used only in cheap soap and cosmetics.

The formula is more than blurred…is it cocoate or palm kernealate…

What else can I say…this is not that good for your skin…

Parfum: Respiratory toxic, immune system toxicity, organ system toxicity, allergen, irritant, environmental toxicity…

The world parfum or fragrance on the ingredients list represents an undisclosed fuzzy mixture of various chemical scents and ingredients used as fragrance dispersants
