Pure Hearts & Clean Hands Soap Co. is a humble, family owned and operated Christian business that believes in integrity and hard work. We want you, the customer, to know that whenever you purchase our products you aren't just sending your hard-earned money to some huge conglomerated corporation that supports who knows what.
We are the McPherson family: Adam, Heather, Toby, Mason, and Titus. We are proud to have been given this company by God to produce premium quality handmade natural soaps, cosmetics, and various other bath and body products. Our handmade soap is made using the cold-process method; each soap batch being made with vegetable based oils and ingredients. All of our soaps contain natural ingredients and absolutely no pre-manufactured soap products. You will not find any harmful chemicals, preservatives, or emulsifiers in any of our products.
As a family and a company, we feel that there are far too many chemically engineered products offered in our economy that are not properly tested to ensure that they are safe to use on our bodies. A frightening number of these products will never be tested to see if they are beneficial or damaging to God’s Creation. But, when you buy from Pure Hearts & Clean Hands, you can rest assured that every single product is carefully handmade and packaged with your health in mind. We are devoted to creating low-priced, natural, and environmentally friendly products just for you!
The current natural market and economy can be extremely confusing with buzz words like “Natural” and “Organic” being tossed onto any and every product with no real regulation. It is for these reasons that it is crucial to learn the basics of natural soap so you can better understand exactly what you are purchasing.
Handmade natural soaps
When evaluating a “handmade natural soap”, here are some guidelines for you to really determine what truly natural soap is and what is not. First things first, you do not want to see artificial or chemical colorants, hardeners, latherers or preservatives in the ingredients. Truly handmade natural soap will not contain any of the above chemicals. Thanks be to God that the average consumer is becoming more aware of the negative effects of synthetic additives in commercial soap, as well as, other bath & body products.
Our delightful natural soap bars are made with generous amounts of top quality vegetable oils and unqiue botanicals, herbs, essential oils and fragrances. We leave the wonderful naturally produced Glycerin in each soap bar to make each one that much more moisturizing.

It is understandable why most consumers are confused at what is natural and what is not. It is most likely because of all the multiple syllable words which the average person cannot even pronounce. There is no wonder why there is a fast growing interest in handmade natural soap and body products. So what should a natural soap ingredient list look like? The way a true handmade natural soap should look like:
- Saponified Vegetable Oils (including olive, palm, coconut, castor, and shea butter)
- Orange Peel Powder
- Rosehip Powder
- Essential Oil
- Natural Vitamin E
As consumers, we must become more contentious of the products we purchase and what those products contain.We must read the ingredients listed on all products and separate the truly natural from those claiming to be natural.
The addition of one or two natural ingredients does not make a product "all natural". Pure Hearts & Clean Hands natural soaps are made in small batches to ensure you receive the finest handmade natural soap possible. Our handmade natural soap is made using a cold process to create the perfect handmade natural soap by using a variety of natural oils, butters & botanicals.

Every variety of handmade natural soap is formulated with a high percentage of cold pressed olive oil to which we add organic coconut, palm, castor, canola and shea butter to create a wonderfully rich and creamy lather that nourishes skin as well as it moisturizes it.
What Can Be Considered Natural Scent?
There are two ways to scent a handmade soap - one way is completely natural and the other is not. If you truly want to select a completely natural soap, it is very important that you understand the following section and terms used.
Natural Essential Oil Soap
Essential oils are extracted scents directly from the flower, leaf or stem of a plant. An essential oil is a natural scent. Essential oil is what you are looking for in an ingredients listing if you are interested in a completely natural soap.
Handmade Fragrance Oil Soap is not exactly Natural Soap
Many of the scents we enjoy today cannot be collected naturally or may be too expensive to extract for the handmade soaps and bath products. A fragrance oil is created in a Perfumer's laboratory to simulate a desired scent. Anytime you see a fragrance oil or fragrance listed as an ingredient in a soap or skin care product, you should pause and consider because that means the ‘natural soap’ contains an artificial scent, not a natural scent.
Our natural handmade soaps are made in two categories:
- 100% natural essential oil soap & fragrance soap.
- Natural essential oil soaps are crafted using natural herbs, spices & clays with 100% pure essential oils. These completely handmade natural soaps contain no artificial colors or fragrances.
- Handmade soaps are formulated similar to our natural essential oil soaps with the exception of fragrance oils. We offer handmade soaps with fragrance oils for only one reason: our customer’s desire products scented with them.
Are our handmade soaps and bath products scented with fragrance oils completely natural? No.
Are they far better than the bottles of chemicals our commercial counterparts are offering? Yes, by far!
