Goats Milk and Activated Charcoal Complexion Soap - an update

Following on from my blog post last week, here are my now two-tone soaps curing on the drying racks.  I think I like this style better than the previous style - somehow they seem more polished-looking to me.

There's also the added advantage that you can choose to use either the slightly scrubby Activated Charcoal side, or the smooth and silky Goats Milk side of the soap when you wash with it.

There's still a couple of the three-tone beauties available, so I'll keep the image on the website the same until these have cured and are ready for sale.  Lovely!

Chocolate Mint Slice Soap

A pretty picture to start the day - my Chocolate Mint Slice Soap.  It was unmoulded last night, and I'm going to give it another day or two before I slice it up for curing.  This soap smells amazing, and every time I make it I get the biggest craving for Mint Slice biscuits - yum!



(In the background you can see my Cinnamon, Oatmeal and Honey Soaps - sliced and starting to cure).

Makeover time!

I've been unhappy with the packaging for my Bath Salts for quite some time now. I always felt that the cellophane bags detracted from the pretty Bath Salts inside, and didn't really show the product to be as lovely as it really is. An added issue was that the bags weren't very strong, so I had to double bag them when I sent them to customers in the mail, crossing my fingers that they would arrive safely.  Definitely a drama I could have done without!

I've recently invested in some stand-up pouches for my bath salts, and I must say I just love them!  They're sturdy, protect the product really nicely, and they're resealable - great for a bag that contains at least 5 baths worth of salts.

Here's some pictures of the evolution of my Bath Salts packaging, in reverse chronological order:



A work in progress: Goats Milk and Activated Charcoal Complexion Soap

I've just finished making a fresh batch of my Activated Charcoal and Goats Milk Complexion Soaps, so I thought I'd show you how pretty the soap looks when being poured.

This soap contains Goats Milk for it's mild, gentle qualities; and Activated Charcoal for it's ability to deep cleanse and exfoliate the skin.  Essential Oils of Rosemary, Sweet Orange and Tea Tree are included for their antibacterial attributes - great for warding off pesky spots and blemishes on your face!

This batch is slightly different to those on the website as this time I have made this soap two layer, rather than three layer.  I'm looking forward to seeing what they look like once they're out of the moulds, and seeing which design I prefer!
