Do you use color dye or glitter in your soap?
That’s a great question and one we get all the time. We do not use dye in any of our products. We use a coloring powder called Mica. Mica is a naturally occurring skin safe mineral. Mica powder is sparkly and may resemble glitter but it’s not. Mica is safe for all skin types and does not dye your skin in any way.
Why is your website sold out?
Due to our high demand, products are only available during scheduled restocks. Every product is handmade and packaged by hand. Subscribe to our website to be updated on restocks.
Do you use Lye (Sodium Hydroxide) in your soap?
Of Course. No lye = No soap!
All REAL soap is made with lye. Any skin or hair cleansing product made without sodium hydroxide is not soap, it is a detergent. Lye, which is an alkali, is combined with vegetable oils to cause a chemical reaction. This reaction breaks down the fats or oils into fatty acid chains, and the lye is neutralized in the process. If the soap is made properly, the lye is used up in the saponification process to turn oil into soap. There is no lye present in the finished bars of soap or shampoo. While all real soap must be made with lye, no lye remains in our finished product.
Do you accept pre-orders?
I understand that at times it can be hard to catch our restocks. Unfortunately, we do not offer pre-orders. Follow us on IG:@GoddessoftheSeaBeauty for updates.

Store Hours Vary
What is the best way to contact you?
The best way to contact us is by email: firstname.lastname@example.org We do not respond to DM’s regarding orders.
Why do colors and designs vary?
All products are handmade with love. Because we love what we do, we allow our creative energy to take control. Thus, creating beautiful, colorful and amazing soap. We understand that at times you may wish to have a specific color. Due to our large customer base, that is something we cannot accommodate at this time. Allowing personal request would increase order processing time. Regardless of the color or design, the healing properties are the same.
I recently purchased a soap, and my skin is breaking out.
