As with bees, these soaps are small but mighty! Unlike bees, however, our honey soaps will leave your skin feeling smooth and comfortable. Made with gold Brazilian clay as a colorant, bee pollen powder, honey, and coconut milk, these little bars are packed with skin-soothing goodness, and they are delightfully scented with "Honey Almond" fragrance.
Other ingredients in these cold processed soaps are: saponified olive, organic coconut, sustainable palm, almond, and castor oils; shea butter; and tussah silk. These bars are formulated to offer a rich, creamy lather with plentiful bubbles. Each bar weighs at least 2 ounces.
Ingredients not related to lather, bubble type, and skin feel, are phthalate free fragrance oils, and sodium lactate (the salt component of lactic acid, used for hardening soap). Sodium hydroxide (lye) is added to oils early in the soap making process. Lye and oils combine in the saponification process, chemically transforming into soap and glycerin, leaving no remaining lye. Our soaps, along with many (most?) cold processed soaps, are "superfatted," which means that we add slightly more oils than are necessary to saponify the lye. This ensures that no lye will remain when saponification is complete, and the remaining oils contribute to producing an emollient bar of soap.
