This soap was inspired by a galaxy since the challenge was a splash swirl. I absolutely love this color combination and I had to choose a fragrance to go with it. Black Raspberry Vanilla is the perfect scent for this beautiful night sky.
Scent: This ethereal fragrance has top notes of peach, coconut, wild berry, bergamot, and strawberry. Middle notes of jasmine, rose, and violet. Base notes of powdery raspberry, sugar, and white musk.
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.
Ingredients: olive oil, organic coconut oil, water, sodium hydroxide, canola oil, 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.
