This is a delightful soap that reminds you of a lovely summer day at the beach with a bonfire and a pleasant drink in your hand. I highly recommend purchasing this bar in advance of any winter cold fronts to remind yourself that SUMMER WILL COME AGAIN.
I bought a bar of this with a variety when I first ordered soaps from Tabula Rasa. When my mom and I went through and were sniffing them, this one stood out to both of us. I ordered a second one shortly after so we could both have one to use. It is a delightfully rich scent that is traditionally "masculine" and is quite comforting.
Avocado oil is traditionally used in soap making to increase the skin conditioning properties, and for a creamier lather. Avocado oil also has as a high content of vitamin A, D and E.
Coconut oil is a soapmaking favorite! It contributes an abundance of fluffy lather, even in the hardest of water.
Palm Oil has a slippery history, but RSPO certified palm oil helps protect the rainforests and farmer’s livelihoods, while also helping your bar last much longer in your shower.
Kaolin clay adds a little slip to your lather so your washcloth glides over your skin, while also helping the fragrance last longer in your bar.
Sodium hydroxide – often called lye – is the magic-maker in cold process soap. It’s what’s responsible for taking all those oils and turning them into soap. We formulate our soap so there’s no lye left in our bars.
Sodum Lactate is considered a humectant, which means it draws water to it, but in soap making, it helps firm up bars so they don’t crack and last longer in your shower. It’s made from fermenting corn and beets, which we think is pretty cool.
Sodium Citrate is one of two ingredients we use to counter hard water. Sodium Citrate helps balance the pH of our bars and softens the water a bit so the lather washes right off – taking the minerals that cause that hard water film on your skin with it.
Sodium Gluconate is one of two ingredients we use to counter hard water. Sodium Gluconate helps bind up some of the minerals that make water hard so the lather washes right off – taking the minerals that cause that hard water film on your skin with it. It does double duty as a gentle natural preservative, too.
Our fragrances are phthalate free and skin safe, always. We often blend our own with essential oils safe for skin. Our fragrance free bar is just that: no fragrance added at all.
We love color, but we understand that you don’t want to step out of the shower looking like a cartoon character. We use skin-safe, cosmetic-grade mica and pigments, activated charcoal. and natural clays in all our soaps.
