This soap is one that I made for the Soap Challenge Club. Part of the challenge was to use all natural colorants. I chose uncolored soap batter, clays, and indigo powder. Then I used a pouring method to make the soap look like wood grain.
Scent: This smells a lot like a childhood orange drink. It is a bright, fruity, and strong orange scent.
Details: My soaps are handmade using a method called cold process. Coconut, olive, and castor oils are combined with a lye water solution. The resulting batter is then colored, fragranced, and poured into a wooden mold with a silicone liner. The loaf goes through a process called saponification overnight meaning that the lye and oils have become hard soap. There is no lye remaining once this process is finished. After I pull them out of the mold, I cut them into bars and let them cure for six weeks. Since this soap does not contain any synthetic detergents, it will not strip the skin of its natural oils while still cleansing. The castor oil is used to create a nice lather.
Ingredients: olive oil, organic coconut oil, water, sodium hydroxide, canola oil, castor oil, sodium lactate, fragrance oil, rose kaolin clay, indigo powder, Brazilian gold clay, Brazilian red clay
Notes: The recipe I use creates a very luscious but soft bar of soap. The bars may have been damaged during the packing and shipping process. Any dents are purely cosmetic and will not change the performance of the bar.
If any irritation occurs, please discontinue use immediately.
