The beginning of the process of Saboneto soaps begins in the field. At dawn we go out to nature to carefully pick the fresh organic plants, affectionately gathering the all the special plants including: rue, rosemary, rose hips, sage, daphne, olive leaves, mint, melissa, nettle, thyme, lemon grass, hyssop, oregano, frankincense, lavender, lemon verbena, basil and more.
When our baskets are full, we head to the factory and sort out the plants, carefully guarding them, each one with its own unique qualities and benefits. The organic plants that we picked are then cooked in hot water, filling the entire factory with the smell of a new morning, straight from nature.
While the plants are turning into a wondrously fragrant liquid, we are already preparing the other oils that are part of the unique recipe at the Keshet family factory, including olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, castor oil, almond oil, sesame oil and Shea butter, which together make a pure and rich composition of choice oils that accompany all of our soaps and give them a texture that simultaneously lathers, stimulates, pampers and indulges.
Next comes the mud, taken straight from the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth. For thousands of years, the miraculous healing properties of Dead Sea mud have been used to make skin more healthy, beautiful, and youthful. This is also one of the main ingredients of Saboneto’s homemade recipe.
At this stage, every bar of soap is infused with its unique quality. There is soap that that is infused with fragrant cinnamon powder that creates a grainy texture to give your skin a deep cleanse. There is soap that is infused with original Spirulina algae that will dazzle with its powers and more, each one with its own most excellent health benefits. At the end, before the pouring of this wondrous mixture, it will be stirred with a loving hand.
After a few days, the “block” is cut and it is set aside to dry and age for about a month. This preserves the sweetness of the plant, its fragrance and taste, just like it is in nature and to give to you the joy that only nature knows how to give, without any unnecessary additions.
The high quality ingredients and cold pressing (until 38 degrees Celsius) preserve the healing properties that nature generously provides to us. At the same time, we do not use SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate), or any other harmful toxins in our soaps. Our guiding principle is to strive for a product full of blessing and goodness, for our customers and the environment too. The end result is a rich and healthy soap like you have never experienced.
The fusion of natural plants, pure oils and Dead Sea mud rejuvenates us anew every time, like children playing in morning sun. At Saboneto, we bring to you these fragrant soaps from the hills of Binyamin, Israel with love and joy!
