We are waiting for our newest batch of soap bases to arrive next Wednesday.
Exactly 100 lbs of it! WOOHOO!!!
I believe that I have finally found the ALL NATURAL soap base that performs almost perfectly in our super-duper humid weather! This means no more fretting about glycerin dew forming on the surface of the soaps (little droplets like condensation) and having to wrap each piece of soap in cling wrap to minimise this issue. No more squeeshy-mushy soap!
For those who are not familiar with glycerin soaps, the formation of glycerin dew on glycerin soap is a very common phenomenon; only to be accentuated by the humid tropical weather here. Glycerin soaps contain, well, glycerin as a natural by-product of the soap-making process; or it has been added into the formula.
Gylcerin is a humectant, meaning it draws moisture to your skin. Due to the high glycerin content in handmade glycerin soaps, these soaps are very moisturising to the skin and are gentle enough for sensitive skin and for children.
Have you ever wondered why your skin feels dry after using commercially produced soaps? This is because today's manufacturers of soap remove the natural glycerin for use in their more profit producing lotions and creams.
Our newest soap bases contain all natural ingredients and the formula has been tweaked such that very little or no glycerin dew forms on the soap surface when exposed to air.
I have already planned our next batch of wedding favours with the new soap bases. Stay tuned!
ohh....so E-X-C-I-T-E-D !
