This soap was made from the leftovers of Peninsula of Wine and Cherries that I made for the Soap Challenge Club. It may not be the prettiest soap, but it still smells amazing and is great for traveling.
Scent: Bold, fragrant dark cherries and tangy black raspberries float in a boozy glass of French merlot wine. Smooth vanilla notes complete this sophisticated blend. It's not a strong fruit scent. The vanilla definitely shines through.
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, cocoa butter, canola oil, shea butter, castor oil, sodium lactate, fragrance oil, mica and titanium dioxide for color.
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.
