Store Policy & Considerations
Bougie Bars & Bubbles products are handmade with all natural ingredients. When creating our Bougie bars, each base oil (plant oils) or butter was chosen to provide for a stable soap bar with a great balance of hardness, moisture, lather, and soapiness. Other natural plant oils or butters are added based on their specific characteristics to make for a quality, stable and unique product. Sodium hydroxide (lye) is used to convert these natural oils into soap (saponification process). Glycerin, which is a natural humectant and moisturizer, is sometimes added to also enrich foam and lather. We also use quality essential and fragrance oils. Some of our soaps are vegan-friendly.
No chemical or synthetic preservatives, hence leaving our soaps to a ~11 month shelf life. A Sistal or mesh bag may be purchased (in future) or provided in larger orders (3 or more bars) to help extend the life of our soap. The bags can also be used for producing foam and lather of the soap as well as for storage. A soap dish will also be a great option.
Since our soaps to cure for 4-6 weeks, there may be times when orders are delayed. We have measures in place to help prevent possible delays, but depending on product demand, delays may be inevitable. We MUST ensure you receive a stable, quality bar, at all times. If this occurs, we will communicate this with you.
*Special/group orders may be delayed. Please allow 6-7 weeks for product to be produced, packaged and mailed to ensure stability.
**Some of our bars may consist of animal oils (beef tallow), in the future, or as a special order. However, most will consist of plant oils (VEGAN), predominately.
Absolutely NO RETURNS OR REFUNDS.
