We all know that Someone who believes a pot of coffee should be brewed so strong that it practically marches up the stairs and hauls you out of bed in the morning, right? Well, this soap, fragranced with a mix of "Oatmeal Stout," "Oatmeal, Milk, & Honey," and "Chocolate Espresso," is that coffee's charming and magical cousin! Its fragrance is so irresistibly warm, sweet, and alluring that you'll actually look forward to rolling out of bed and washing up in the morning! Goat's milk, beer, and colloidal oatmeal boost the bubbles and skin soothing qualities of these luxurious bars. (*As the photos indicate, the coffee mug is only on one side of the bars.)
These cold processed soaps are made with saponified olive, organic coconut, sustainable palm, almond, and castor oils; shea butter; goat's milk; beer; colloidal oatmeal; tussah silk; and sugar, formulated to offer a rich, creamy lather with pleasantly bubbly foam. Each bar weighs at least 5.25 ounces.
The other ingredients, not related to lather, bubble type, and skin feel, are skin safe micas, 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.
