This bar is scented only with natural essential oils--star anise essential oil and a touch of rich vanilla essential oil. It looks and smells like a wonderful licorice pastille! We have added activated charcoal to make this a super effective facial soap. It also works well to help alleviate the clogged pores that lead to bumps on arms and legs that can appear in the warmer summer months. Let the fluffy lather sit on your skin for a few seconds before rinsing off. The activated charcoal is believed to have a large adsorptive capacity, drawing toxins from your skin and rinsing away impurities. Because of the dark color, it may discolor light washcloths.We make soap the old fashioned way combining hand rendered tallow, olive oil, organic virgin coconut oil, and castor oil with sodium hydroxide, also known as lye. The sodium hydroxide reacts with the oils and the whole gooey mess turns into a rich, emollient soap. Pretty nifty, huh?
These are hefty hand-cut bars of soap, weighing between 5 and 7 oz (142-200 grams). Each is approximately 3 1/4" by 1 3/4". They are chunky in shape, so they won't thin out and break in the middle after continued use.Each has been cured for atleast 4 weeks to ensure a hard, long lasting bar. If they are kept in a proper soap dish and drained well between uses, they will hold up through many, many baths, showers, and hand washings—no messy, gooey, melting bars here!Our bars have abundant rich, moisturizing bubbles. We do not need to add any artificial foaming agents. The natural glycerin is retained in each bar, and the combination of rich oils and natural tallow, provides loads of fluffy lather.If you have tried natural soap before and found that it either dried your skin, or turned to mush, give one of our bars a try! We don’t sell anything that we don’t first enjoy bathing with ourselves! If you’ve never tried handmade soap before, you don’t even know what you are missing. Commercial “soap” is filled with detergents, hardening agents, and perfumes and is not really soap at all. Pamper yourself a bit and give one of our bars a try. Your skin will thank you for it!Our soaps are made with beef tallow sourced from small family farms that practice free grazing.
