Lighthouse Food Farm & Backwoods Country Soaps


This is our new endeavor to support our nonprofit farm called Lighthouse Food Farm. We hope to support our farm with the materials needed to sustain growth and pay the bills with our new soap making capabilities. The name of our soap business is Backwoods Country Soaps, this is where we make 100% natural soap that is not only better for your skin but much more healthy to your skin than most so called soap on the market today. Actually the so called soap that is on the market today is detergent rather than soap.

Not only that but the beneficial glycerin is mostly removed from their soap now days. The companies sell the glycerin to use in shampoos and lotions rather than allow you to have the benefits from it being in their so called soap they market.

Glycerin is a good re hydrant which helps in moisturizing skin. It is a natural cooling liquid which soothes our skin. Glycerin has many applications for the skin and hair. It is considered a miracle liquid which is sweet tasting, colorless and thick.

  • Lightening – Glycerin is beneficial for lightening of skin. Glycerin can protect the skin from tanning. It also helps to remove clogged impurities from the skin cells. The skin becomes clearer and fairer. Glycerin is a major constituent of many skin toner and cleanser. The cleaning properties help glycerin to lighten skin shade.
  • Moisturizing – Along with the application of glycerin for lightning of skin, we can also use glycerin as a moisturizer. Glycerin has a tendency to attract water on the skin. It also helps to circulate oxygen in skin cells. The oxygen circulation increases blood flow, which in turn makes the skin glow. Therefore, glycerin is used in many moisturizers and lotions. Glycerin is used in soaps as well.
  • Anti Aging – One important application of glycerin for skin is the anti aging effect. Glycerin fills in cracked skin formed by wrinkles. Glycerin thus reduces wrinkles and fine lines. Therefore, it can be used in anti aging face packs and face peels. Glycerin reduces aging signs and makes the skin look much younger and beautiful. Glycerin based anti aging creams are also beneficial for the skin.
  • Toner – Glycerin has cleaning properties as mentioned above. It also helps to tone the skin color. It is safe to use glycerin got lightening skin. Glycerin evens the skin tone making the skin look brighter and better. Glycerin reduces spots and blemishes. A glycerin based toner with lemon is also good for lightening skin. The lemon has bleaching effects which lightens the shade of the skin.
  • Smoother and Softer Skin – Glycerin is a good moisturizer as mentioned above. It also helps to cover up rough and dry patches. It repairs the dry skin and makes it smooth. Therefore, glycerin is used on rough skin patches on elbows, knees, etc. Thus glycerin is good for skin. It should be applied on regular basis for overall improvement of skin.

This means with the glycerin we leave in our soap and even sometimes add more will benefit your skin. Not to mention the other great qualities in our handmade soaps. In some of our soaps we add essential oils which can benefit your skin as well. Visit here to learn more about the Skin and Health Benefits of Essential Oils.

Essential Oils are sometimes very expensive so therefore it could effect the prices of our soap bars. However this depends on the amount and expense of essential oils that we use in each bar. We always keep the quality of our soap to a maximum, giving you the best product possible at a fair price.

Try our soap here at Backwoods Country Soaps, and then if you like it please consider leaving a testimonial on our Customer Testimonial page. We also would like it very much if you would tell your friends and family about our Quality Soap.
