Twisted Oaks Ranch is located in De Leon Springs FL. We offer handmade soaps, body butter, bath salts from all corners of the world, a variety of bath accessories as well as shave products for men. Because our family and friends enjoyed using our natural soaps, demand grew. In 2006 we decided to expand our horizons and offer them to everyone.
We use “cold process” to make our soaps, not a melt and pour base. All of our soaps are made with vegetable and/or nut oils, we choose not to use animal tallow. Our ingredients are selected for their exclusive properties and benefits, meticulously measured, weighed and blended by hand. In addition, we have incorporated a few of the many vegetable and nut oils into several of our soaps.
After much research, trial and error, we selected Olive oil, Coconut and Palm oils for our soap base. Olive oil is our main base oil. Coconut oil, produces a fluffy lather and helps to create a higher grade of soap. The third base oil is Palm oil, having some of the same qualities as tallow, produces a hard bar of soap and because it is less soluble in water it’s firmness holds up throughout use. Lastly, this is lye soap. Lye is the agent that turns oils into soap and no; it doesn’t make our soaps harsh. Our base oils and perfectly matched nutrient oils make a luxurious yet affordable bar of soap.
