Scented with Black Opium, this bar, with its brown pony watching the moon through a gentle snowfall, feels rather magical. The fragrance, a dupe of Yves Saint Laurent's "Black Opium," is a really beautiful, sweet blend of coffee, vanilla, cream, orange blossom, cedarwood, and patchouli. Everything about this soap evokes a sense of sweetness and calm. We will note that the top of the bars have a slightly greenish-black tinge. This is actually a very thin film of soda ash, formed during the curing process. It's a minor cosmetic issue, and we could wipe it off with a wet cloth, but that would remove the sparkles! Also, we think it gives the soap a bit of other-worldly mystery.

These cold processed soaps are made with saponified olive, organic coconut, sustainable palm, almond, and castor oils; shea butter; goat’s 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 5.8 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.
