Brewty Difference #1: Beer Soap and using beer in general for personal care (other than drinking it) is not a new thing. Look up "Beer Soap" on the internet and see how many hits you get. Often times though however, those that make Beer Soap will take an ordinary bottle off the shelf and put it in their soap recipe. But all beer is different and not all beer provides the best combination of ingredients to give the best nourishment and nutrients to your skin. That is where Brewty comes in. We brew the actual beer with a focus on its nourishing properties. We brew beer that is good for bathing and skin care and not like those who use some six pack off the shelf, made for drinking.
Brewty Difference #2: The founder of Brewty is an avid home brewer of beer. I have learned a thing or two about what grains, hops and yeast make beers malty vs bitter. Hops for starters is an amazing plant that is utilized in mostly all beers. There is an entire science behind what is in one of those little cones. That science along with the properties of the grain and yeast all come together to form the beer used in our Brewty Bars. Our lip balms or Brewty Balms utilizes a hop infusion technique to deliver concentrated and potent hop oils right to your lips. Pretty much anywhere we can infuse properties of our beer into our products, we will.
Brewty Difference #3: Well if #2 didn't hint that the guy who founded Brewty wasn't a nerd of sorts, you need to read it again. A Data Scientist and Engineer by trade one would understand his obsession with numbers and formulas trying to solve some non-linear problem. What? Let's get back to beer soap making. Making soap, the Cold Processed method that I follow, is the old-fashion way of soap making. CP soap as it is referred to requires a "recipe" and process. So does making beer. Manipulating either process impacts the final outcome. Optimizing each process produces a product that is truly Brewtyful.
Hop oils found in beer will soften and soothe irritated skin. The brewing process that creates the beer produces a natural anti-bacterial agent packed with nutrients like riboflavin, pantothenic acid, and lots of B vitamins. The malt in the soap has been known to help clear up acne, alleviating the symptoms of dermatitis and eczema, and maintaining balanced oil levels in your skin. And that is just the beer working here. We add several other natural oils to the mix to create a truly awesome bar.
We also use our specially made beer in our shaving products and are sure to infuse a generous amount of hop oils into our moisturizers like our lip balm.

None of our soaps contain Palm Oil which is typically farmed through tropical rainforest deforestation and whose source is hard to verify. Cold process soaps contain lye which is naturally removed during the soap making process. Our soaps also contain essential oils and sometimes fragrance oils that are gentle on the skin. We also use natural exfoliants such as spent grains (from beer brewing), oatmeal, coffee grounds and hop leafs.
Now some other natural product artisans use colorants like micas or pigments to add texture and dimension to their products. We really limit the use of such colorants since here at Brewty we are most focused with the beneficial properties of what we create. Plus, some colorants may taint the color of washcloths and towels which is another reason we limit their use.
ALLERGIES & SENSITIVITIES All ingredients used in all of our products are listed on the label. It is up to you to be aware of your own allergies and sensitivities. Do not use our products if you have allergic reactions or sensitivities to any of the ingredients listed. If you are a person with known sensitivities please test the product on a small patch of skin on your arm or leg first before using them on the face.
Many brand-name 'soaps' are not soaps at all. Instead they are made up of various detergents. Large companies create their 'soaps' by substituting the natural components with chemicals. Glycerin which is a main by-product of soap making gets removed by these large companies and substituted with another chemical. Glycerin is worth more to them in lotions and other products as it provides many of the soothing and moisturizing properties that are important in soap.
Here at Brewty we make soap the old-fashioned way through a method called Cold Processed. This process preserves all the benefits of soap including the naturally occurring glycerin which helps nourish and protect skin.
Now we also have smaller versions called Brewty Bits that are 1 inch cubed. These are perfect for the guest sink or for when you want to take Brewty on the road.
