We handcraft most of our products as they are ordered so that you have the full expected shelf life expectancy to enjoy them. We use 12 months as a guide but with proper care they may last beyond that. Avoid exposure to full sunlight or harsh temperatures. Allow all handcrafted soaps to dry between uses on a soap dish or rack that allows water drainage.
Please use items only as intended. All of our products are for external use only. Do not ingest, allow direct contact with your eyes or broken skin. If you have an allergic reaction, please discontinue use. Take necessary precautions if you are pregnant or nursing. Essential oils are wonderful but not intended for children and some are not recommended during the gestation period. Consult your physician to discuss your specific situation.
Understand that with any personal use product water has the ability to introduce and breed bacteria and the potency of essential oils break down when exposed air. Prolong the life of your products by keeping the containers free of moisture and tightly closed when not in use.
Regulations set forth by the FDA prohibit bath and body companies from making health-related claims about beauty products. We are not medical or healthcare professionals and do not claim that the use of LACo products will have a positive effect on pre-existing physical and/or mental health conditions. The information in our listings pertain to the properties of specific ingredients used in the product.
GENERAL PRODUCT WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS:
It is the responsibility of the user of the products to use properly and only as directed. Always be aware of personal allergies and irritations. Spot test all skin products prior to full use. If any products cause irritation, discontinue use immediately and consult a physician. LUNA ALCHEMY Co LLC is not responsible for injuries or accidents.
We use a variety of ingredients in our products. At some point, one ingredient may have been in contact with another ingredient. This would be similar to a warning that says "This product has been processed in a facility that also processes ______". Please contact us if you have more questions.
We use only the best quality oils, organic oils and butters in our soap recipes. Please review ingredients for each product listed to understand exactly what is in the product you are purchasing. ALL soaps contain sodium hydroxide (lye). However, the sodium hydroxide is neutralized in the saponification process. Soap cannot be made without sodium hydroxide. We scent our soaps with fragrance oils or essential oils. Please use caution when using a body product containing essential oils. Be informed and know what essential oils may affect your body and any personal medical issues. We use essential oils for scent only and follow the IFRA for the safe usage of fragrance and essential oils in our recipes.
Not all soaps are created equally. Our soaps are handcrafted and hand cut. Weights will vary from bar to bar and batch to batch. That is the nature of a handmade product. Most of our soaps will range from 5 ounces to 6 ounces. For simplicity, our prices are based upon lowest bar weight per batch and any soap weighing more is merely a bonus for the price paid. Handcrafted soap will continue to evaporate water and will continually lose weight. However, this makes for a finer, longer lasting soap bar despite the weight. Our soap bars are rather large - feel free to cut them in half for easier handling as well as the opportunity to switch scents sooner or share!
The images are for reference only. These are handcrafted items and although we try to duplicate batches - it is not always possible so please allow for slight variations.

YOUR SKINCARE RITUAL:
It can take time to train your skin especially after years of products containing harsh chemicals and preservatives. Be patient and gentle with your skin. If it has grown accustomed to chemicals it may have created a way to defend against them. It will take time and consistency bring your skin back into balance with the new products. During this time your skin may go through a period of cleaning out or purging that may appear as slight breakouts that should clear up shortly thereafter. However, use your best judgement and discontinue use if this becomes severe or irritating.
