How can Alegria Soap Shop & Factory help lessen the curve of the COVID-19?
We are taking every precaution to adhere to strict sanitization procedures, monitor our health, and practice social distancing at all times.
Do natural soaps work as well as something I might find in a grocery store or pharmacy?
All of our soaps will effectively remove germs, bacteria, and viruses from your hands and body. They are all natural, biodegradable, and work to keep your hands and body clean. We have been making soap since we first opened in 2002, 18 years ago! We carry over 15 scents of soap for all different skin types: dry, oily, or normal skin.
Our soaps do not contain an antibacterial agent, but you don’t need one to get your hands germ, bacteria and virus-free.
How do I wash my hands properly?
- Wet your hands with running water.
- Apply enough soap to cover hands
- Scrub all surfaces of hands, including the back of hands, between fingers and under nails.
- Rinse thoroughly with running water.
- Dry hands with a clean cloth or single-use towel.
You should wash your hands for at least 20-30 seconds. An easy way to time it is by singing the full happy birthday song, twice. 😉
Will you still be refilling candles?
You can drop off your candle pot that needs to be refilled at the factory location and we will send you a text or email when it is ready for pick up. Payment can be made when you come to pick it up as usual.
How are you giving back to the community?
We are accepting donations in $1.00 increments. For every dollar donated, we will donate one hand soap plus $0.25 cash to one of the organizations that are in our surrounding area that is offering relief efforts for families in need.
Thank you to everyone in our community who has been working to help the families who have lost their income due to the pandemic of the COVID-19 virus.
