Double Rose & Goat Milk Soap
I'm not a soap maker, and yet...
Thus far, I have not found a local soap maker with whom to collaborate,
My family's need to have an unscented soap is challenging. Most of the soaps on the market contain long lists of chemicals, and most handmade soaps are beautiful and tempting, but choke me with their scents,whether "natural" or not, and definitely scare me with their colors. I'm lucky to have several friends who have tried their hand at making "naked" soaps for us, but I wanted to have soap for us with specific herbs and a pretty look as well.
It's been one of my core beliefs, and definite challenges, as I have journeyed through dietary and lifestyle changes, that allergic or sensitive folk should not have to compromise on quality- whether that be beauty of a product, scent, taste, feel, etc.
For this product, I used a melt and pour soap. Because, as I said, I am not really a soap maker. Perhaps I will learn.
The base consists of: Saponified Vegetable oils (primarily Coconut Oil), Glycerine (kosher, vegetable origin), Goat's Milk, Purified Water, Sorbitol (from berries, moisturizer), Sorbitan oleate (emulsifier), Oat protein (gluten free conditioner) and Titanium Dioxide (mineral whitener used in opaque soaps.) To this I have added (all organic): rosehip seed oil, avocado oil, rose petals, and (wildcrafted) horsetail, as well as an additional splash of goat milk.
It is creamy, rich, and has only the slightest of scents (my children could not smell it at all- I have a very sensitive schnoz.) Horsetail is full of silica and meant to be extremely nourishing for skin.
I poured these all willynilly into the molds, so they are approx 1 oz, some are a bit thicker.
Price is per bar. They come packaged in organza drawstring bags. You can use the soap right in the bag, if you prefer, and then hang in between bathing, so the soap is less melty in the shower.
