Sea waves soap

This soap was supposed to be something totally different... 😲...anyway, it didn't turn out to be so ugly, did it? 😢


...the day after... 

I had plenty of soda ashes, but I think that this time they came in handy! The top looks foamy and the white and blue curls look like sea waves 🌊🌊🌊







Recipe:
Olive oil (pomace) 30%
Coconut oil 30%
Palm oil (organic) 30%
Canola oil 10%

Note that the palm oil I buy from The Soap Kitchen 
'carries Organic Certification and comes from Columbia. It is not produced on land that has been taken from the Rain Forests, nor are there any Orangutangs made homeless. Our suppliers do use 'ethical' methods in their production (we have actually visited the site). Our Columbian suppliers are members of the RSPO (Round Table for Sustainable Production of PalmOil).'

Colours: orange and violet liquid soap dyes. Liquid dyes can be a bit of a pain because they tend to give spots.

Decorations: star anise and red cosmetic glitters.

Scent: no fragrances or essential oils added.


1 day in the mould + 1 day as whole bar outside the mould before cutting!
