I was really happy with this soap, it didn't leave my skin feeling dry and the fragrance is amazing! Much better than any mass-produced bar soap you'll find at the grocery store and I like that I get to support a small business. And I can't stress enough how good is smells!
I've been wanting to try this soap out for a while now, so when I got my stimulus check I decided to go for it. SO WORTH THE WAIT. This soap is seriously silky, with just the right amount of scent. It rinses nice and clean, and doesn't dry my skin out. The scent that remains is light and subtle, and it's wonderful. This is like going to the spa level soap. Definitely recommend. :D
I'm not quite sure what I was expecting when I ordered the black amber and lavender soap other than, "I hope it smells good." I was certainly NOT disappointed! The black amber and lavender blend together to create a soft but spicy smell that I absolutely adore. It's probably THE best smelling soap I've ordered from Tabula Rasa Farm so far.
I love the texture and feel of this soap. There are few nicely fragranced bars on the market that don't leave my skin feeling stripped of all moisture, but these are perfect for my dry skin. Most products marketed for dry skin have no fragrance, so this is a welcome change. The fragrances are lovely and complex, and linger faintly all day. I also appreciate the creativity that goes into presentation. The perfect bar soap.
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.
