mud and moon is a design studio based out of Ahmedabad pursuing artisanal cold process soaps.

Our soaps are very mindfully designed, hand-poured & hand-cut in small batches. Each of our soap’s base is made with plant-based oils like olive oil, sunflower oil, coconut oil & castor oil in small batches. Each of these oils possess a special skin-loving property. They are also only coloured with natural ingredients like indigo, turmeric, naturally-occurring clays & botanical powders. We use pure essential oils or fragrance oils to impart scents to our soaps.

All our soap are SLS & parabin free. We take custom orders for wedding/event favors, baby shower favors & coorporate gifting.

What is cold process and why use it?

Natural soap travels back to the chemistry books which say acid + alkali = salt + water. Natural fatty acids (oils and butter) combines with an alkali (sodium hydroxide \ caustic soda) to result into soap. This process is called saponification.

Glycerin is the natural byproduct of saponification. It is an essential humectant which naturally draws moisture from environment deep into the skin when applied. This will keep your skin plump and hydrated.

Most of the mass-produced bars are marketted as ‘moisturising bars’ or ‘beauty bars’ because they are not really ‘soap’, as they do not undergo the process of saponification.

Thus, they fail to recognise the definition of ‘soap’ regulated by FDA.

According to the FDA website:

“Not every product marketed as soap meets FDA’s definition of the term. FDA interprets the term “soap” to apply only when the bulk of the nonvolatile matter in the product consists of an alkali salt of fatty acids and the product’s detergent properties are due to the alkali-fatty acid compounds, and the product is labeled, sold, and represented solely as soap [21 CFR 701.20]. Products that meet this definition of soap are regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.”

How We Work

pH Tested

All our soaps undergo pH test to bequalified to reach you. For a natural bar of soap, the pH should be slightly alkaline, which means a reading of 8-9 or a dark green coloured pH stripe.
