The oils used in Laughing Rabbit handcrafted soap are carefully chosen
for the benefits they impart to the soap. Starting with the base, soy
shortening is an enriching substitute for the animal fats. Nobody had to
die for our soaps! Olive oil is used for it's moisturizing and
antioxidant effects. Coconut oil helps the bar to lather, palm kernel
oil aids in hardening and rice bran oil is an excellent skin softener. All that gets mixed together with water and the
catalyst that pulls it all together, sodium hydroxide--lye.
Now remember, although lye is used to make the
soap, there is no lye in the soap.
What you have now is a bar that is 3/4 soap and 1/4 glycerin. Glycerin is
a natural byproduct of the soap making process and a major moisturizing
element. Without the animal fats, what you've got, basically, is a
friendlier version of Grandma's lye soap.
One more very important additive is raw silk. Silk is actually the very first additive. In order for it to melt, it must be added to the lye water in the very beginning of the process. This adds a smoothness and feel that is truly exceptional.
These soaps are all very moisturizing and mild. They are long lasting and the fragrance stays with them throughout the life of the
My best friend Laura bought me the Emu Hand and Body Balm, and I
absolutely love it! I'm a baker and work with my hands, and spend a lot
of time washing, cleaning, and generally abusing my poor hands. Most
products either don't work, or really sting when I use them because my
hands are so dry and cracked. But this balm is wonderful. Plus, the
scents you combined remind me of the wonderful spa days Laura and I used
to share when we were roommates, and not living thousands of miles away.
Thank you for an amazing product, and for a happy memory!
Your elated customer,
Dear Dan and Charlotte,
On a recent visit to the OSU-OKC
Farmer's Market (Fall 2010), I was lured to your booth by the heavenly
aroma of your soaps! As if that wasn't enough to make a customer out of
me, the information you shared about the various combinations of
ingredients and benefits of handcrafted soaps convinced me to give it a
try. I selected Oklahoma Sunrise and Peppermint for myself, and my son
chose Dragon's Lair. What a life-changing decision this has been! My
skin has never softer -- or smelled better! I find I don't even need to
use lotion after a shower, as my skin just feels and smells so healthy!
Also, I have had a little patch of contact dermatitis on my hand which
is now improving with the use of your soaps.
Needless to say, I
returned this past Saturday to stock up on Laughing Rabbit soaps, as I
never, ever want to run out! Now, even my husband and son are using your
wonderful soaps. My goal is to make our house smell like your booth at
the Farmer's Market! I cannot thank you enough for your lovely soaps!
The only problem I have now is choosing which scent to use next!!!
I'll be seeing you soon ~

Hi Dan & Charlotte,
I've been buying Laughing Rabbit soaps for
almost two years, and I never want to use anything else! I have had
eczema and sensitive skin nearly all my life. Most soaps - even the
"dermatologist approved" ones or the "organic" soaps - irritated my
skin. After showers, my skin would turn red, dry out, and itch. For
years I searched for a soap that would cleanse without irritating.
Your soap is the only soap that does not cause breakouts or irritation.
Most people with eczema cannot use scented soaps; however, I have tried
several of your scented soaps and they do not irritate my skin. In fact,
the patchouli rose actually helps clear up
my eczema breakouts! My skin is noticeably softer and healthier since
I've started using your products.
Thank you for making a quality
product - and at such a great price! I'm a customer for life.

Just wanted to let you know that I ordered the
Oatmeal Honey Beauty Bar for the first time
last month and absolutely love it! I have super sensitive skin and
thought this sounded like something I could use. It is so soothing and
gentle on my skin. Thanks so much for the great product!
included an extra bar with my order last month because one was a
Thanks so much for your generosity. I will
definitely be ordering more this time around!
Dear Charlotte & Dan,
Just placed my order and I was trying to
remember how long I have been ordering your soaps....I met you both at
the Carol & Crumpets show in Tulsa some time ago (I owned a company that
made herbal vinegars & oils) and I have yet to use any other soap! I
have been very remiss in not saying thank you for recommending it. It is
simply the best soap and I love it. In fact I get nervous when I get
down to my last 2 bars...:-)!

Itís been a while since I placed an order, but please know that I
appreciate you and your soaps now more than ever! :) I recently made
friends with a lady who sells Arbonne, long story short she talked me
into buying some product. I liked it pretty well at first, but as
time went on I started realizing that it just wasn't as good as it
should be for the hefty price tag. Lesson learned- LRSoaps are the
best for my skin and my pocket book! So thanks for such a great product
and such wonderful customer service. I did get that note and extra
soaps in my last order (thanks so much) and it made me smile to know
that you were thinking of us still. I'm just not very good at
correspondence! :) Hope your spring is blessed!

I am very pleased with what I purchased, and only wish I could have
I look forward to my next order, and I will let
Charlotte know which of the scents I liked, that way maybe she can
make me the lotion or at least sell me the scented oil and I can mix my

Hello. I am the lady you gave a sample of the
Above and Beyond soap. I have
extremely sensitive skin and at the time had a rash on my face a neck. I
using 2 types of medicine given to me by the dermatologist and was
relief. After 2 days of using the Above and Beyond bar the rash began to
and was completely gone in about 4 days. I am definitely going to order
I would like to know if you have a shampoo soap also. If so, please
which it is and then I will place my order.
Thanks so much.
--Ada P., Tulsa, Ok.
This is Faith from the food coop. I just wanted to let you know I
think the buffalo tallow soap is really neat. I love the name you
picked for the scent---Vision Quest. You have a real talent for
choosing just the right scent, colors, and name to make a soap very
special. Each one is really a work of art. They are a joy to use.
Oh, I also wanted to tell you the
Odor Be Gone soap is a life-saver
for moms with babies in diapers! I use cloth diapers and sometimes
after rinsing out a poopy diaper, I would thoroughly wash my hands and
nails two or three times and my hands would still stink. Needless to
say, this was gross and frustrating. Now that I use Odor be Gone, I
wash my hands thoroughly one time and they are completely free of
odor! I highly recommend it. It would make a great shower gift. :D
Hehe, I sound like a commercial! Well, I'm definitely sold on it. :)
Have a great day and thank you for the wonderful products.

Hi Charlotte: Great Product --
This is Gwen. I met you at the Farmer's Market this morning. I got a
chance to try Peppermint Plus today from my coop purchase and loved it.
I'll definitely buy from you again, in fact, I think my daughter has one
she wants to buy next week after smelling all your soaps.
--- Gwen H., Oklahoma City
Thanks for my prompt order. I received my order on Thursday and
wanted to thank you.
The soap lathers up nicely and has a great smell. I will be ordering
again, you can count on that. I want to try the lotion and balm as well as the lemongrass, that's one
favorites as well as the patchouli and etc.....This was my first order
I am glad I found you. My husband, son and myself use it and they love
it as well.

Hi, I just sent another order and included an additional
Sunrise (total of 3 for the two orders).
Thanks again for such great
products and service.

Thanks very much for including the 2 extra soaps. We
appreciate your personal and considerate service. I hope you have a

Just wanted to thank you for the prompt shipment, the package was
and opened (although I told her it was a Christmas present I guess she
couldn't wait) and she called me yesterday to thank me. She also said
there was a little jar of emu balm enclosed and I wanted to thank you
that added touch of Oklahoma. I don't remember when I have been treated
well as a customer and I will be placing more orders in the future for
family and friends.
--- Margaret P., Norman, OK.
Thank you for a really wonderful product. We love your soaps. It's the
I've found that takes care of my winter dry skin. This is our second
order and won't be our last.
--- Mary M., Choctaw, OK.
Thank you so much for the order, I'm just thrilled with the soaps.
They arrived today (Wednesday), which is great considering the distance.
I hurriedly opened the envelope and was surprised by the wonderful aroma
of patchouli. I've tried the Cheech first (not only am I a sucker for
patchouli, the hint of orange is marvelous!)
and am very pleased. Please keep up the great work, and I look forward
to ordering more in the future.
--- Diane B., Cranbrook, BC
I love your soap. The lemongrass is so strong and pure !! And the
soap doesn't leave me feeling as dried out, as others have.
---Pam T., Tulsa Ok.
Your products are wonderful. Thank you. Specifically, the
hand and body balm is the only product that
keeps my cuticles from being dry and sore. My first experience was a
gift and this time I purchased for myself along with some soaps, so
thank you for your wonderful products.
---Belinda M., Midwest City,
I received my order today and I am very pleased with the soaps. The
fragrance is fantastic, the lather is unbelievable. I love your soap and
the one thing I really love is the soap is just as now as it
was when I first opened it up!! It doesn't dry my skin out either. It's
an all around great soap. Thank you also for the quick delivery. I can't
wait to order more. I will be back.
---Becky S., Cleveland,
Thanks for the Hand & Body Balm. Itís really
made a big difference on my thumbs and fingers. They were so cracked and
painful I couldnít hardly stand it.
Remember how all my finger tips
were bandaged? Well that salve took care of my fingers in just a week
and the ends of my thumbs were greatly improved. Now Iím using it on my
Thanks, Charlotte, Iím glad the Farmerís Market goes year round.
