About Ahuto Natural Hand Made Bath Luxuries
The word Ahuto means Wellbeing in Twi, the language of Ghana
Ahuto is a veteran owned, ecologically responsible, cottage business. My products are made by hand, in small quantities, in my home. To assure exceptional quality, I use all natural ingredients and therapeutic quality certified organic essential oils. My priority is on your general health and wellbeing. I have hand-sown, and nurtured to maturity, most of the herbs and other botanicals used in my products. I am environmentally responsible, and I support free trade and sustainable agriculture.
My soaps are made the old fashioned way - with vegetable, fruit or nut oils and sodium hydroxide (lye). During the saponification process, glycerin, a natural emollient and humectant, is produced. I do not remove this from my soaps. Commercial soap manufacturers remove the glycerin to sell as a stand-alone product to increase their profits. They then replace it with chemicals and artificial ingredients like sulfates, solvents and surfactants.
These ingredients are toxic and can lead to serious health consequences! Please, for your health and that of your family, be sure that the cleansing products you buy do not contain sodium laurel sulfate or sodium laureth sulfate. Information about them can be found here:
My soaps contain none of these things. For those with allergies or sensitive skin, my products will be a welcomed blessing. After using my soaps for a time, you may find that your skin will be softer and you will need to use less, if any, lotion.
My soaps contain only the following ingredients:
(Not all soaps contain all of these ingredients)
Saponified oils of Palm, Coconut, Soy, Sunflower, Safflower, Castor and or Olive. It is then enriched with Clays, Flower Petals, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Goats Milk, Herbs, Essential or Fragrant Oils, and other healing ingredients, depending on the soap type. With the exception of Goatâ€™s (or other) Milk, I use no animal ingredients in any of the products I make.
In addition to soaps, I make bath salts and sugar and salt scrubs, using only the same quality ingredients that I use when making my soaps. If you are in need of something that I do not currently offer, please let me know. I will make special orders upon request.
