These delightfully spooky bars, scented with "Wizards & Wands," are certain to lift your spirits! The skull toppers will glow in the dark if you leave them in a lit room before turning out the lights. The fragrance is described by our vendor as having "top notes of bergamot, crisp citrusy orange, and rose... continues with woodsy notes of violet, patchouli, and oakmoss, and with... a base of cedar, tonka beans, and musk." It also has a sort of baby powder scent, which is surprising but nice. These are large soaps, each weighing at least 7 ounces.
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, formulated to offer a rich, creamy lather with pleasantly bubbly foam.
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). The skulls are made of melt and pour base (ingredients listed in our FAQ section). 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.
