Pina Colada (Goat's Milk Soap)

This soap was inspired by a good friend, Bern who can't get enough of the beach. He loves the smell of coconut, from the suntan lotion to Pina Colada.
I was apprehensive at first but one whiff of the soap certainly brings back fond memories of great time with friends on holidays.
It is a beautiful soap, with gentle goat's milk and the coconut fragrance is gorgeous without being overpowering. This is definitely a fun soap for people who are loves and knows how to have fun,
Ingredients: Fresh Goat's Milk, coconut oil, palm oil, safflower oil, glycerin, purified water, sodium hydroxide, sorbitol, sorbitan oleate, soybean protein and Coconut Island fragrance oil.

Cocoa butter Mocha Soap

This cocoa butter based soap has ground coffee in it. It smells heavenly, exactly like tiaramisu and the wonderful thing about this soap is it removes the smell off garlic and onion. It is a wonderful kitchen soap. My hubby, who loves his nasi briyani claims that it removes the smell of the curry off his fingers but not under his nails. The nail brush should do the trick.

This soap is also great for those who loves gardening. The grounded coffee acts as and exfoliant and removes all the stubborn dirt. You might need the nail brush for dirt under the nails.

Try this soap in the shower, first thing in it the morning. I have a client who swears by it, gives him an instant wake up fresh feeling. This sounds like an unusually combination but you seriously need to try it to believe it. The cocoa butter is an excellent moisturiser.

Ingredients: Cocoa butter, coconut oil, palm oil, safflower oil, glycerin, purified water, sodium hydroxide, sorbitol, sorbitan oleate, soybean protein, grounded coffee and Turkish Mocha fragrance oil.

Big Block of Soap

I was really excited when I made these blocks of soap. I had planned to do a Deli style of selling, cutting and weighing out the soap. The blocks can be made so each slice is about 150 gms or 100 gms.

I think this will be a fun way to interact with your clients, have a bit of time to discuss about the soap. The important message about these soaps are that they are bio-degradable and do not contain any petrolleum by products. This would be fun thing to sell on a school carnival, cart selling or anywhere you want to sell something different. The cutter is also included for loan if anyone is interested in selling block soaps. Ingredient listing of the soap will also be provided.

Block Soap Types

Oatmeal and Lavender Soap. Lavender is an old time favourite for everyone. It is a wonderful oil which heals and one of the very few essential oils that you can actually apply on the skin directly. The finely ground oatmeal and the whole lavender bud makes it a wonderful gentle exfoliating soap. Ingredients: Oatmeal, coconut oil, palm oil, safflower oil, glycerin, purified water, sodium hydroxide, sorbitol, sorbitan oleate and soybean protein. I have added extra lavender buds to the whole oatmeal soap that I carry and used lavender essential oil and lavender and amber fragrance oil to make this soothing soap bar.

This is an aloe vera soap, with cubes of green tea honey soap added with Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Rosemary Extract and Grapefruit Seed Extract. It comes in three fragrances, lemongrass essential oil (block on top with slices of lime), tea-tree and blue eucalyptus and green tea.
