CCrafters Review- Soap Giveaway


CCrafters (a division of Karess Krafters) is a North Carolina bath and body company.  They specialize in handcrafting natural soaps in small batches using premium ingredients. 

CCrafters holds all the great qualities I look for in a company-
•To Never Test on Animals
•To use the best ingredients nature can provide
•To recycle and reuse items within the workings of our company
•To purchase as many ingredients directly from local farmers
•To use 100% recyclable packaging when possible
•To use a hosting company that relies solely on renewable energy
•To always use reliable suppliers who cares about our environment and the ingredients it offer

I was so happy to find such a great company for my bath product needs.  So many companies use ingredients that are far from natural-not something I want going on my body.  CCrafters states "We, at CCrafters a division of Karess Krafters, feel that what you put ON your body is just as important as to what you put IN your body. Therefore, we pride ourselves in offering you the best quality products that are formulated by us from the most pure and finest ingredients found around the globe."  Rochell was so nice to send me quite a few samples for the purpose of this review.

The first thing I tried was the soap which was amazing.  It has a silky creamy lather and the pomegranate jazz smelled delicious!  It left my skin feeling very soft.

Give your skin a soothing and moisturizing cleanse with our All That Jazz soap that has chunks of handmade soap blended with a sweet and irresistible aroma dripping with juicy Pomegranate. This bar has a delightful and sensual fragrance of pomegranate, black currant and sweet raspberry on a bed of musk. A true pleaser in any bath or shower!

I also got to try Hello Sunshine soap.  This smelled SO GOOD!  I love the coconut and shea butter smell and this was that with a hint of mango, a sweet smell. This soap does not have an overpowering scent either.

Get a thorough, yet gentle cleanse with this wonderful bar of soap. Loaded with a three exotic butter blend of Cocoa, Mango and Shea, Organic Aloe Vera, and moisturizing vegetable oils of Olive, Rice Bran and Sunflower that are anchored in a clean, crisp aroma derived from plant-base essential oils. An aroma of rich, fresh pink grapefruit peels blended with Lavender, Lemon and Sweet Orange.


Ingredients: Saponified Oils of Olive, Coconut, Palm, Sunflower, Rice Bran, Castor, Cocoa, Mango and Shea Butter, Organic Aloe Vera, Purified Water, Essential Oils of Pink Grapefruit, Lemon, Sweet Orange and Litsea Cuebeba, Kaolin Clay and Paprika

I also got to try the Almond, Milk & Honey Sugar Scrub.  This made my skin so smooth and once again I LOVED the smell!

If you want silky soft glowing skin from pure cane sugar crystals that exfoliate dead skin cells, while olive oil, cocoa and shea butters condition, moisturize and smooth you to perfection than our Body Glow is for you! We use only the finest ingredients and whip them together to create the ultimate sugar scrub! Beautifully scented and easy to apply, our Body Glow is an emulsified scrub that converts to a lotion consistency once in contact with water, leaving your skin moisturized and protected, without feeling greasy.

Fragrance: a sweet blend of Almond, Milk and Honey with a touch cherry, musk and hawthorn.

My favorite product I tried was the Shea Monoi.  My mom also tried and loved it and wants to place an order!  It is a wonderful moisturizer that has a thick buttery consistency.  It rubs right in and leaves your skin oh so soft without being greasy.
Our SheaMonoi Butter is the ultimate all over moisturizer. We took 70% of pure African Fair Trade Shea Butter from Togo blended it with nourishing oils of Monoi De Tahiti, Virgin Coconut, and Meadowfoam Seed and whipped them into a rich, thick moisturizing delight that melts into the skin on contact. Our pure butter delight can be used as a deep hair conditioner, to an all over treatment, leaving no heavy film behind.



We were also sent Lemon-Mint Foot balm which they say you can put on at night with socks for extra softness the next morning.  I go outside barefoot a lot and this product is something I need.  My moms feet are worse so she ended up with this one though (Told you we need to place an order!!). I did get to sample if first and it is great!!  It will really help out with dry and/or cracked feet!
Our Lemon-Mint Foot Balm is formulated for rough, dry, peeling or cracked feet. It contains the beneficial and healing oil of Emu, skin-loving Fair Trade African Shea Butter and moisture-binding Jojoba Oil. This foot balm is extremely rich and moisturizing. Due to the concentration of this product, a little goes a very long way. Size 2 oz


As you can see CCrafters has very attractive packaging.  They also include all ingredients on the labels and they are also listed online.  They have great customer service and fast shipping.  They sell a lot more products than I have listed including lip balms, cocoa butter, shampoo bars, deep hair conditioner and goats mild soaps.  Some more of their soaps include cranberry spice, triple avacado & lavendar oats with goats milk.
