Tennessee Handmade Rose Petal Shea Goat Milk Soap
Rose Petal Shea
First, we macerate our own organically grown rose hips and petals, and infuse them in olive oil for 16 weeks. The infused oil is used for the entire olive oil portion of the recipe. We also add shea butter to create these special bars. The scent is soft natural rose with a hint of green, exactly like a freshly cut rose. This is not a rose perfume scent, this is the scent of a fresh cut floral.
$5.00 per 4.5+oz bar


Honeysuckle Parham Farms Goat Milk Soap
Honeysuckle
Our place is covered in wild honeysuckle. The oil used in this soap was infused with the first wild honeysuckle blossoms of spring. The scent is lovely, like taking a springtime stroll down by our creek.

Parham Farms Pumpkin and Spice Goat Milk Soap
Pumpkin and Spice
No colorants used to create these dark, glycerine rich bars. The deep brown color is the result of using real pumpkin puree and vanilla oleoresin.

$5.00 per 4.5+oz bar

Chamomile
Made with a combination of essential oils and fragrance oils, this bar smells like someone dried a whole field of fresh chamomile to make it. It's got that dried, slight powdery, soft note to it. No green notes in this one. As soothing as a cup of chamomile tea. $5.00 per 5+oz bar
Oatmeal Milk & Honey Parham Farms Goat Milk Soap
Oatmeal Milk and Honey
An all time favorite, these bars include and are topped with a gluten-free collodial oatmeal.> The scent is classic oatmeal milk and honey fragrance oil but I think it includes a sweet note that reminds me more of an almond oil scent than of honey. $5.00 per 4.5+oz bar

Parham Farms Essential Beach Goat Milk Soap
Essential Beach
Essential Oil Goat Milk Soap
This seemless blend smells like an afternoon on the Caribbean.

FROZEN MILK AVAILABLE FOR SOAPMAKING
SOLD OUT. We won't have more 16oz bags until the
does freshen again in 2021. Frozen goat milk is usually
available in 16oz bags for those who want to try their
hand at soapmaking. Bags are $1.00 each and must be
picked up at the farm. We do not share our exact soap
recipe, but we can recommend some basic starter recipes.
Email soap at parhamfarms.com or
message us on Facebook for more information.

OUR SOAPS ARE MADE WITH:
COCONUT OIL, sustainably-farmed and fair trade PALM OIL,
OLIVE OIL, CASTOR OIL, and occasionally
special ingredients like shea butter, cocoa butter,
avocado oil, aloe vera, green tea, vegetable puree,
dead sea salt, or clay, are added to some bars and
these products will appear in each product
listing and on the label. Our oils are always food
grade and of organic quality whenever available
(most are). If you have concerns about an allergy,
please feel free to contact us. We will NEVER use
soybean oil, wheat germ oil corn oil, peanut oil,
canola oil or hydrogenated oils. Any colors/tints
used are FDA approved, and cosmetic safe. We like
using mineral mica, it doesn't tint the lather,
stain the tub or leave behind any color on the skin.

ABOUT LYE:
Sodium or Potassium hydroxide (lye) is required in the
chemical reaction called saponification, which is
the process of making soap. You can't convert fatty
acids to soap without the use of a lye. Detergent bars
not require lye, but they aren't natural soaps, they are
synthetic detergents. You can purchase pre-made soap base,
but if it is soap, lye was used to make it. There simply
isn't another alternative. Lye may or may not appear on a
label because there are options for labeling soap in the
States. First, soap may be labeled as "soap" and no ingredient
list is required. Secondly, you can list the ingredients used
to make the soap (what went in), or you can list the resulting
end products after saponification (what's left after the chemical
reaction has occurred). For example: Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Olive oil,
Water and Sodium Hydroxide might go in the pot to make a soap,
but after the chemical reaction of those ingredients balanced to
consume all of the lye and convert all of the fatty acid to soap,
you'd have Sodium Cocoate, Sodium Palmate, Sodium Olivate and water
- no lye, just the fully saponified fats. The important
issue is whether there is any lye remaining in the soap after
the reaction between fatty acids and the alkali is complete.
Our own recipe is carefully calculated so that there is never
the possibility of lye remaining, but rather we have an excess
of fatty acids (butterfat and other oils that are not converted to soap.
Our ingredients for every batch are weighed using a digital scale
to insure precision and consistency from batch to batch.

ABOUT GLUTEN:
Many people, including my own daughter can not afford to risk
gluten exposure. She has celiac disease but doesn't only react digestively.
Even topical gluten exposure makes her symptomatic. Our soaps are
always GLUTEN FREE.

ABOUT GLYCERIN:
Handcrafted soaps are rich in the naturally occuring glycerin
that is formed during saponification (the process of natural soap-making).
We don't choose to separate or clarify the glycerin in our soap using
alcohol but we do encourage the formation of glycerin by insulating our
molds to take advantage of the naturally exothermic reaction.

ABOUT FRAGRANCE:
We use either pure essential oils or bath and body certified safe fragrance
oils to scent our bars. We have segregated the 100% pure essential oil soaps
into a section of their own.

ABOUT THERAPEUTIC CLAIMS:
We will not make claims about our products treating or curing any disease.
The FDA simply does not allow that because to do such would classify
our products as drugs and and subject them to all of the same applications,
testing and clinical trials (at our cost) as any new drug. You may see other
sites list their soap and lotions as being good for various skin conditions or
even stiff joints despite the fact that these claims are not in compliance with
FDA regulations. Natural soaps and lotions may or may not be easier tolerated
by those with problem skin, scents and essential oils may contribute to reactions
and sensitivity. Our only recommendation to people with troubled skin is to
ask your dermatologist or physician if a natural goat milk product might be helpful.

WHY OUR BARS AREN'T WHITE:
You may notice that we don't have bright white bars of soap,
and that's due to the fact that we don't use water, only milk
for the liquid portion of our bars and when milk is heated in
the process of soapmaking, it changes from a white to a beige color.
Our oils are also in part responsible as we don't choose to use
highly refined oils. The organic olive oil, palm and castor oils
that we use are of a golden hue. Only the organic coconut oil is
pure white. When natural colorants, clay or mineral mica is added
to soap batter, the golden hues combine with the natural colorants
to create subtle tones of color. Also, anytime a fragrance containing
natural vanillin or vanilla oleoresin is used, the soap browns naturally.
We choose not to use color stabilizers to prevent the natural
golden and brown tones from appearing.

WHY ARE TWO EQUALLY PRICED BARS SOMETIMES DIFFERENT SHAPES OR SIZES?
We cut and sell our soaps based on weight. Sometimes when pouring thicker
soap batters, small air pockets, or voids can develop inside the bar.
Though our customers may never notice, we want everyone to get what they
paid for -- so we cut our soap based on the weight of the bars as they
come out of the mold, not for size or shape.

ABOUT BAR WEIGHT:
Each 20 bar batch initially weighs over 150 ounces when the slab is
first released for cutting,but as they dry/harden, they become about
33% lighter by weight. Hard bars, dry bars last longer, even if they
are a lighter weight. Natural soap is full of glycerin, and will
naturally seek to attract moisture, so it is important to use a soap
dish that allows drainage and to place the bar in an area where there
is good air-flow to prolong the life of the bars when not in use.

ABOUT RESPONBSIBILITY and COMMON SENSE:
We believe that each of us is responsible for the earth around us.
How we select and use products has a big impact on the resources of
the earth both in our time and for future generations. We are dedicated to
using products and packaging of minimal environmental impact. We purchase
products with minimal packaging, we choose biodegradeable and recyclable
packaging where possible and we reuse everything that we can. We
ship our products either wrapped in paper or with recycled bubble packs,
and we encourage our customers to recycle these items as well. Our
lotion products are packaged in plastic bottles. We did originally
try glass, but the glass bottles were heavy, expensive and breakable
and our customers stated that they would prefer the safety, and the
savings of plastic bottles. We do have customers who have paid shipping
to return plastic bottles that we have sterilized and refilled, but
this effort also leaves a substantial carbon footprint due to the
energy required to return and sterilize the bottles for reuse. Usually
our customers use 'local to them' recycling options.
We don't test our products on animals. We test our products on ourselves.
We never put our products in our eyes or our animals eyes to determine a
level of irritation. Our products are not supposed to go in the eyes or
on mucous membranes, so common sense tells us not to put it there.
Natural soap is not tear free.
