We are pleased to announce a new feature of Darluck natural cosmetics.

Our history has been a constant search for quality. Quality that meets the needs of our customers and delight. Through innovations and solutions in the products have achieved the quality targets.

Our concern from the beginning, besides quality, was also to sustainability. A biodegradable natural product could not come wrapped in a synthetic packaging. Then chose the natural polymer cellulose and recycled paper to pack our soaps.

With the growth we saw the opportunity to be innovating in this craft sector in question that packaging, and we decided that Darluck would then be a pioneer, as in other respects, the use of a simpler packaging and more in line with sustainability.

We developed a charming box to pack our soaps!
Everything is done for us, we maximize the handmade concept with great taste and creativity. We do not use any graphic or cardboarder to make these packages. We prepare the layout, buy recycled paper, printed, cut and assemble one by one these boxes.
Minimize the number of materials, we decrease the disposal, we use less resources and energy – nature thanks!

Preparing medicinal plants and herbs extracts


We produce our own plant extracts and herbs that we use in soaps and phytocosmetic.

We do this because we want to have control over the quality of raw materials we use in our products and to be harmonized with the concept of natural and handcrafted product that advocate and practice.

Industrialized contains extracts derived from petrochemicals, such as propylene glycol solvent and synthetic antioxidant BHT products – ButylHidroxyToluene, and for this reason and also because the source is not always reliable, we do not use these inputs in our products.

We use an efficient extraction process that gives extracts produced quality and reliability.

Vanilla Extract


These vanilla beans provided by Ane Walsh are lush Grade A Madagascar Vanilla planifolia, the best there is.


Succulent, fleshy, aromatic, nothing like the stunted and droughts that are out there.


To make the alcoholic vanilla extract has been used grain alcohol in the proportion of 250 ml per 30g vanilla beans. This extract can be used for cosmetics and also for culinary purposes.



The beans are cut in half lengthwise to expose the seeds which concentrates the aroma of vanilla.



With the knife the seeds, called caviar, are scraped removing from the beans.


I prefer to chop the beans after removing seeds, but you can leave them whole.
Cutting the pods into small pieces you increase the surface area and the extraction is more effective.


t is placed in the bottle with grain alcohol and stirred vigorously. I used a bottle of clear glass for effect to photos, but the recommendation is using a dark colored bottle, green or amber to avoid contact with light.


P1040012Here, it is now only wait two months and vanilla extract will be ready. In the first week stirred daily and then at least once a week.


Natural cosmetics – release!

P1030836It is with great satisfaction that after six months of development and testing, I am launching an initial line of cosmetics – Cream Moisturizing Body, Moisturizing Cream for Hands and Face Lotion.

Are all natural vegetable products, free of any petrochemical derivative and that would surely be certified as natural by any cosmetics certifying bodies with global presence.

The difficulty of developing a line of products of this type here in Brazil, artisanal scale, the availability and quality of raw materials. It is very difficult to obtain the principal components and cosmetic actives for quality and reliability. Much time was spent in search of suitable raw materials and that would meet the development objective of cosmetic products. dimensoes cosmeticos verde tituloThe objectives established for product development were based on the dimensions that are used routinely to measure the efficiency and effectiveness of a cosmetic. This can be measured on 6 fundamental properties – nutrition, protection, penetration, slip application and oiliness. The goal is to achieve the maximum in the first five properties and the minimum in oily. I believe that I achieved this goal through careful choice of oils, cosmetic active and emulsifying system, developing three products 100% natural, free of any petroleum product. P1030823 P1030825 P1030827

Soap reuse/reprocessing – rebatch


Accumulated over time a lot of soaps that were leaning awaiting a destination, and now decided to make a reuse – rebatch and donate the soap for some institutions.

He had a box full of them, most packaged in cellophane made ​​in 2009 that ended up not trading at the time I was selling soap, because I changed the formula to a harder soap and they ended up getting.


The amazing thing is that these soaps with almost 5 years, were all perfect, even with a sharp aroma of essential oils. I gathered these samples retention of batches produced, some of the tests I ran, totaling 13 kg of soap.

First step is to break up the soap bars to facilitate melting. I tried with a electric meat grinder but did not work because most of this soap has a predominant, although very dry, composition of unsaturated oils (olive) and so sticky that does not flow through the grinder.


The alternative was to manually grate, a work bordering on insanity that took almost a whole day to grate bar for bars, 13kg of soap.


I used a slow-cooker (crock pot) to melt and fuse the soap into a single mass. I made 2,5 kg batch with addition of 10% water.


As the grated soap occupies too much volume each batch of 2.5 kg was born at three stages, taking approx. 3 hours each processing. The last load of shavings was allowed to melt partially to give this effect of colored chips.


Finally after almost a day scraping the soaps and another 15 hours of rebatching work, here are the 100 bars of soap 90g reprocessed.


Used oil soap – calcium carbonate


P1030287Rev Titulo EnI noticed that some initiatives of reusing used oil with the production of soap, both individual entrepreneurship as NGOs, using calcium carbonate or dolomite – ore of calcium carbonate and magnesium.

I was curious because the addition of such charges levied on the product costs and only justified if it had a very specific function. Ask information and how no one answered, I decided to do some tests.

used oil soap caco3 en

The formula used was this. The water based dye blue dye was used for better visualization of the test.P1030290titulo En To measure the difference in hardness of the soap was improvised device this mimics an apparatus for measuring impact. Consists of a driver tube, 1 meter high which is released by a steel rod with 15g weight. Gravity this rod goes through the driver tube and penetrates into soap. The hardness is measured by penetration depth (mm).


The soap was drying for 25 days before hardness test and both with and without carbonate, had the same hardness value of 6 mm.


The foaming test was done with a shaving brush rubbed in a standard way to develop the soap foam. Not noticed any difference. The behavior of the wet soap was also identical, forming the “gooey” feature of this type of soap.

To test the oxidation (rancidity) of soap, they were left next to a glass window exposed to direct sun in the morning for 10 days.

P1030453text En

Significant difference, the soap with calcium carbonate has much better oxidation resistance.

From what has been tested we can only say that calcium carbonate improves the oxidation resistance of this type of soap that is very prone to rancificar. I believe that this is not the main reason to use dolomite or calcium carbonate used in oil soap, but unfortunately was unable to have more elements that could justify its use. I also regret that the people who use this kind of load does not divulgem the merits of doing this, so that the costs justify the penalty, everyone would gain.
