Red Barn Soap

Offering homemade, hand cut lye soap in a variety of fragrances! Red Barn Soap started as a hobby but blossomed a business as bars and bars of handmade soap accumulated!

Lye Soaps and Their Benefits Our soaps have no color added so they are a natural color. Lye Soap - Benefits of Lye Soap (All our soap is lye soap) General Skin Care : Daily pampering with lye soap cleanses and conditions skin, gets rid of dry and itchy skin, rashes and irritations. Acne Cure : Lye soap unclogs pores, reduces inflammation, and balances skin pH. Washing face with lye soap daily reduces acne and blackheads. It leaves skin silky and radiant. Balancing Dry or Oily Skin : Lye soap fends both dry skin and oily skin. The way it works is very simple and ingenious. Dry skin: Glycerin in the soap moisturizes dry skin. There is very little need or no need at all to use lotions any more. Oily skin: This is the type of skin that has overactive oil (sebaceous) glands. When harsh soaps are used on oily skin, they make skin overly dry, but just for a short period of time. Oily skin reacts to dryness by producing extra lubricants by the oil glands. Such skin becomes oily almost immediately after washing. Using lye soap on oily skin leaves the skin mildly moisturized by glycerin. Under these conditions, the oily skin doesn’t have to work overtime to produce oils any more. You must be patient though. This doesn’t happen overnight. You have to “train” your oily skin to slow down oil production by the hyperactive glands. It may take weeks to achieve noticeable results. Seborrheic Dermatitis & Dandruff Treatment : Lye soap is used in the treatment of seborrhea and dandruff. Simply washing your hair and affected areas with lye soap reduces the flaky skin and irritation. Some lye soaps prescribed by dermatologists are medicated with aspirin, coal tar, zinc, or other additives. Eczema, Psoriasis Relief : Because of the emollient qualities of lye soap, it is used by people with eczema and psoriasis to relief itching, irritation, and minimize the symptoms. Sun Burn Treatment and Prevention : Using lye soap on the bare skin before going out in the sun minimizes sunburns. Lye soap helps cure inflamed skin if the sunburns already happened. Lather lye soap on the sunburned area and leave it overnight. Repeat until sunburn is gone. Lye soap speeds up the healing process. Poison Ivy, Poison Oak, Poison Sumac Treatment : Washing the affected skin area with lye soap immediately after contact with the poisonous plants may help avoid the reaction altogether. If some time is passed after the contact, the reaction is very likely to happen. To minimize the reaction, wash the area with lye soap as soon as possible, and rinse with water. Repeat washing a few times. Lather lye soap on the affected skin and leave it on until the next wash. Skin reaction will disappear soon. Insect Bites Cure and Insect Repellent : Washing the bites with lye soap reliefs itching and swelling almost immediately. Lather lye soap on your bare skin to repel mosquitoes. A bar of lye soap in your kitchen cabinets will keep ants in check. Hunters’ Trick : Wash with unscented lye soap to become “invisible” when you go hunting. Lye soap removes human scent and animals become unaware of you presence. Happy hunting! Lye Soap Slows Down Skin Aging : Soothing, moisturizing, and antioxidant qualities of lye soap slows down formation of wrinkles and age spots when used daily. Specialty Soaps - In addition to the above benefits..... Tea Tree Oil Soap - Great for skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. Also good for poison ivy, poison oak, and plant related rashes. All around good for dry skin. Goats Milk Soap - Also wonderful for people with dry or sensitive skin, or conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. It is also perfect for healthy skin that wants to stay that way. Lavender Oil Soap - Lavender is a healing herb Lavender essential oil has strong antibacterial and antiseptic properties that make it a good agent for curing insect bites and sunburns. It's aroma is great for stress relief. Green Tea Soap (available Feb 20) - Green tea is anti-bacterial and has been found to posses antioxidants that are good for cellular health. Soap products that utilize green tea as an ingredient will have the benefit of not only cleaning but protecting your skin. It is an inexpensive way to get the anti-bacterial and skin-beautifying properties of green tea as part of your daily bathing ritual. Green tea soap is sweet smelling, non-toxic and leaves your skin fresh and clean. We will be adding Rosemary Oil Soap very soon!
