Natural & Handmade Skincare Products

Mainstream brands cut corners by:

• Adding carrier oils to "essential oil" blends

•Using chemical surfactants instead of natural oils & butters

•Using synthetic fragrance and dye compounds

•Using 1% natural ingredients but charging "natural product" prices

In the long run most mainstream brands will have your skin thirsty, you'll see tight skin with large pores and no amount of lotion keeps you moisturized for long. It's tragic we know but Her Oil Love is here to save you from the hamster wheel of big box skincare.

FAQs

Why is your soap so much more than brands I can get from Walmart or Target?

"big box brands" are able to mass produce their "soap" at low costs because they're not using natural ingredients, they're cutting corners by using surfactants (what makes the soap suds) found in kitchen & bathroom cleaner, hair dyes, dish soap and laundry detergents. these ingredients are harmful to your skin & hair and often the affects are not seen or experienced until many years have passed or a chronic condition arises.

Her Oil Love ONLY uses the highest quality ingredients! in order to make soap you need oil, water, & ash (salt) but larger brands use low grade oils that are not pure which results in highly fragranced, chemically enhanced suds that aren't actually cleaning your skin.

Is this witchcraft? I thought apothecary was for witches?

The short answer is no. We are not witches.

Apothecary is as much involved in the culture and heritage of the African diaspora as curly hair routines, our ancestors throughout history no matter what their circumstances used apothecary to help them through tough seasons of hunger, ailment and more. HOLC expands on this knowledge via the skin and hair care products created as well as via podcasting and blogging about the history of the African diaspora.
