  1. Thank-you for the speedy and informative reply…No, I wouldn’t mind a soap with lard in it…in fact it may be even more moisturizing. 🙂 And yes, it seems that palm oil is in just about everything but they are now…at least here in the US starting to label the product if is sourced from a sustainable plantation just as they are doing with wood products. In other words, it has to be certified. I’m sure there are other oil alternatives but probably not as easy to produce.
    Thanks again and I will order some of your coconut soap. 🙂 It says it is $15.00 for 4 bars to the US or $20.00. What is the difference in the price?

    1. Hi Chris, Gosia confirmed that the coconut would be the best and that it lasts well. I had to check the pricing and I see that the line break could be confusing, the $20 is for your Canadian friends 🙂 If you could fill in the contact form on the website http://winkos.co.uk/english/
      then we can exchange details.
      Many thanks, Eddy

  2. Fall Greetings Eddy from the Pacific Northwest region of the US. Washington state! I found your blog via Cecilia’s! 🙂
    I have a question about your soaps…I am looking for a moisturizing bar that won’t lather away too quickly and that doesn’t have palm oil in it. Not sure where you source your palm oil from but I’m sure you’ve heard of the devastation big ag palm plantations are having on the rain forests. Anyway, I’m trying to not use products with palm oil, so which of your soaps would you recommend? I like the sound of the coconut soap but does it last very long?
    Thank-you and I love that you are living a small footprint lifestyle! 🙂

    1. Hi Chris, thank you for stopping by. You have chosen well, the coconut bar would be my immediate recommendation. However I will ask my better half if there are any other alternatives. Would you be happy with a soap that had lard as an ingredient?
      We have noted that since our market has expanded outside of Poland more people ae aware of the problems with palm oil. As a result we have just started making a few soaps using lard in response to demand, so there may be something in the pipeline that is better suited.
      Palm oil is such a difficult product to avoid, and often disguised. I have wondered if it is something that should be tackled on a government level, by adding tariffs. Put the price up and it’s popularity would soon diminish, but then what would become the alternative?

    1. When we do markets we are often approached by people thinking that the bars are in fact slices of cake 🙂
      Any promotion is greatly appreciated, business in good in Poland but it would be noce to expand the market further afield. Like the look of your blog, look forward to reading more soon.

  3. I can personally vouch for the efficacy of these soaps. Not only do they leave your skin feeling smooth and refreshed, they also help combat itchiness, and soothe irritation.

    (High time you had a new theme. I can finally read my comments without a magnifying glass!)
    How about an order/payment option though? That seems to be elusive!
    Cheers mate, Pete.

    1. Hi Pete, thanks for commenting, I knew you would be the first to mention the new theme as I am following your advice from over a year ago.
      We have a contact form on the website http://www.winkos.co.uk (linked a few times in the post) which essentially sets up email communication to make arrangement. At the moment we are only taking payment by Paypal.

      1. Thank you Pete, I have just replied to your email and will forward further details soon.
        Thank you also for your testimonial, it’s always great to get positive feedback.

      2. I wouldn’t make it up mate. That soap really helped when my skin was bad. Perhaps you should add a ‘reviews’ section to the website, when you get a chance?
