Homemade in small batches, this cold process soap Is scented with the tart bright notes of sparkling cranberry, currants and pink grapefruit. This is not your traditional seasonal cranberry soap scent! Ultra luxurious, this soap stands out with the addition of tussah silk and Himalayan pink salt. It is interesting to note, that during the soap making process, when the silk is added to the sodium hydroxide (lye) to dissolve, it creates an almost shimmery liquid. Liquid silk! Although the visual effect does not last in the final product, the liquified silk, in turn with the salt, adds a beautiful skin feel to the soap. Topped with cheerful red cranberry seeds for extra scrubbing power and seasonal appeal! (Although don’t be surprised if it makes the cut for year round availability!)
Many of my listed soaps contain different ingredients from one to the next, but that is what gives them their farmhouse charm by using whatever is on hand! If you are looking for a soap with a specific ingredient, let me know! I may have just what you're looking for in the works or on the curing rack! Keep in mind, it can take several weeks to cure (even more for some soaps!) I can ship about 6 soaps in my smallest shipping box option.

List of ingredients since it's nice to know what you're getting into...(The shower with!)
Ingredients: Coconut oil, water*, pink himalayan salt, sodium hydroxide**, apricot kernel oil, grapefruit essential oil, fragrance, bamboo extract, tussah silk, cranberry seeds, titanium dioxide
*Water will, or at least mostly evaporate out by the end of the curing process
**Keep in mind NO sodium hydroxide (lye) is present in the final product, but is necessary in the production of homemade soaps made from oils or animal fat. Because the labeling of clean, old fashioned soap is largely unregulated by the the U.S. FDA (as long as you're not making any claims as to it's healing or cosmetic properties etc) you may find others label their ingredients differently, using phrases such as "saponified oils of..." or the name for the end-product of the saponification process. For example:
Sodium Olivate (saponified form of olive oil)
All mean the same thing! A chemical reaction between lye and oils/fat has occurred! I prefer to label all the initial ingredients going in the soap batter. If you have any questions, let me know!
Since it's my motherly duty, I would also like to add, please don't get soap in your eyes. It will burn no matter what!
Also, please know I care about my customers, and do my best to label but cannot make guarantees for those with known sensitivities or allergies to any of the ingredients in any of my soap collection since all are made on the same equipment in the same facilities (cleaned between uses) and share close quarters on a curing rack.
