FRESH FACE (Handmade Clay Soap)
This is my favorite face-soap recipe to-date! It's a formulation I began building upon over 3 years ago, and through tweaking the recipe over the years, my super-sensitive, combination skin loves it! It all starts the day before, when fresh rosemary powder & lavender buds meet the skin-loving oils of olive & avocado. By carefully creating an infusion with these ingredients, the foundation for a great recipe begins! This is a clay soap, so of course, the day of creation features loving heaps of French sea clay, also known as French green clay or illite clay. By carefully crafting this fine ingredient with other wonderful additives, a fantasticly fresh formula is born! Shea & cocoa butters add nourishing richness, while fresh aloe juice, raw cane sugar, tussah silk & whole calendula petals bring soothing goodness to the mix! The secret lies in the black seed oil included in this recipe... By carefully selecting when this wonder-oil is added during the soap making process, it's benefits can be thoroughly enjoyed! I use this handmade soap every single day, and hope its formulation benefits you as much as it has benefited me! Of course, no Squirrel & Scholar creation is complete without sending its user on a sensory escape too... Aromatic notes of soft, white florals dance upon lush auras of green, leafy ivy and refreshing ozone for the ultimate fresh-faced experience!
These handmade soaps are lovingly made from scratch in small, artisanal batches! Each & every batch of soap is poured, cut & beveled by hand, so actual weight may vary slightly. Bars weigh approximately 4.5oz each!
