I love all things hand made. I have been making things my whole life. When it came to my latest obsession, soap making, selling my creations was the only viable solution to the overwhelming stock I was creating. Hence, Wenona Lake was born in 2010.
Wenona Lake has sparkling clean water and is where my parents bought our cottage - a happy place full of wonderful summer memories.
My mission is to clean your skin with handcrafted small batch, colourful glycerin-based artisan soap. Due to our harsh climate in the GTA, I also strive to moisturize.
All my soaps use colour to brighten your bathroom and your mood. Designs are vibrant, lively, and sparkly – colour combinations to suit everyone. Scents are not overpowering. I believe we should enjoy the scents in our lives without inflicting them on others.
My products are constantly evolving in design and style. Naming each soap after a song or band has been highly received and helps break the ice with customers at craft shows.
I invite you to try my bars. You can find me at craft sales all over the GTA around the holidays and I am always available by email at email@example.com
IS GENTLE ON YOUR SKIN!
Glycerin is an organic compound; a sugar produced from plant oils, typically palm oil, soy, or coconut. It is a clear, odourless liquid at room temperature and has a sweet taste. There is no animal fat in my soap so it is vegan friendly too.
Commercial soapmakers use glycerin in their more profit-producing lotions and creams, not their soap Their soaps are really just detergent bars - hard and drying on the skin. Wenona Lake soap has extra glycerin added to it to make it more moisturizing and gentle on sensitive skin.
The high glycerin content also means that the soap will dissolve more rapidly in water than harder, dryer soap with less glycerin. Keep it dry between uses. This downside, however, is more than compensated by the emollient, skin loving and gentle nature of the soap. Give it a try!
