Silky Silky Soap

Hello again! So lately I have been back at the drawing board to refine my traditional soap recipe. In my last few batches of soap I have added a special "luxurious" ingredient, Raw Tussah Silk. Here is a pic of the silk that I have on hand. Doesn't it just "look" silky? It feels absolutely fabulous to the touch! 

To give you a little background on this ingredient, Raw Tussah Silk is wild crafted and gathered from the Tussah Silk worms that live naturally in the rain forest. Their silk is gathered after the moth emerges.

Silk protein is one of the most luxurious elements of products to impart silkiness and a luxurious feel to cosmetics, body care and soap products. Silk protein is easily absorbed by the skin and adds silkiness as well as conditions the skin.

So far I have made three soaps, which I will be adding to my Buy A Bar page soon! Both of these soaps will be available within the week!
"Figgy Pudding Bar" (Brown Sugar & Figs Dupe)
Love Potion #9 Bar (Lovespell Dupe)

I also made an essential oil Lemongrass/Eucalyptus loaf today that has silk in it too! The soap really feels "silky"! There is no other way to describe it. So needless to say that I will be adding this as a staple ingredient in many soap bars.

In the near future I am looking forward to making a 100% olive oil (or castile soap bar), and adding some more butters like mango & cocoa butter. 

So check back soon and see what I am serving up at the bar!

We Have a Winner!!!

Hi Folks! I am sorry that I got this posted so late in the day today, but I have been a busy little soap maker this week and all day today!! This is a good thing! :) 

I just want to extend my thanks and gratitude to all those who participated in my first soap giveaway. There were over 28 name ideas posted for my pumpkin spice soap. Needless to say picking the name that I feel is the best fit for this soap was a really tough decision. There were so many good ones to choose from! 

Anyway, enough with the pomp and circumstance. 

The winning name in the Give Me A Name Get You A Bar Giveaway is :
"Harvest Your Pumpkin Bar"
Harvest Your Pumpkin Bar

Thanks to CindyP for your entry, and I will be in contact with you via email in order to send you the Naked Bar of your choice. 

Thanks again to everyone who participated and please continue to follow my blog for more giveaways and more soap chat!! Hugs everyone!
