FAQ

Where do your products come from?
Everything we currently sell in the Whiskey Boat Goods store is hand crafted by us, right here in Austin, Texas.  We use all natural products and renewable resources as often as possible. 


What makes your candles different?
The production is kept small — candles are poured in batches of 4-8 in Austin, TX. Each candle, from placing the all-natural wick, to wax melting and pouring, to wick-cutting and labeling, is constructed by hand with the highest standards in mind. Under optimal conditions, our 9 oz candles will burn for 50+ hours and our 16oz will burn for 90+ hours.

Benefits of Soy Wax vs Paraffin Wax:
Eco-friendly, renewable, and sustainable
Helps support the American farmer
Cleans up easier using soap and hot water
Longer burn time
 
What makes your soap different?
1) Our handmade soap is made of vegetable oils and butters that are rich in antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients that are essential to healthy skin.  Handmade soaps in general have been shown to improve skin conditions such as itching, dryness and skin conditions such as excema, psoriasis and acne. Everyone wants healthy skin and switching to daily use of handmade soap is the best place to start.

2) In the local market you have an array of personal cleansers to choose from that are labeled as deodorant soap, body bars, and body washes. These are just chemical cocktails made of detergents and downright disturbing synthetic ingredients that dehydrate and age skin, cause allergic reactions and have been linked to various forms of cancer. Our handmade soap is free of all of these chemicals and are all natural.  

3) Glycerin is created when our soap is created, it is not added.  It maintains water balance by attracting moisture to your skin. It is proven to be so beneficial to your skin that it is extracted from commercial ‘soap’ and reserved for higher priced body care items such as lotion. Our handmade soap retains all of its natural glycerin and produces a rich lather that commercial "soaps" can't be compared to.
