Even the mushrooms are dancing at this garden party! This bright, light-hearted folk art style soap is scented with a fresh, green blend that starts with bamboo, lime, lemon, mint, and ozone and adds notes of French lavender, with a base of white musk. You will love it!
These cold processed soaps are made with saponified olive, organic coconut, sustainable palm, almond, and castor oils; shea and cocoa butters; lard; coconut milk; kaolin clay; tussah silk; and sugar, these bars are formulated to offer a rich, creamy lather with plentiful bubbles. Each bar weighs at least 6.75 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.
