NEW GRAPE AND COCOA BUTTER SOAPS ARE CURING!
I've been a "soap making fool" these past two weeks. I have two new kinds of goat's milk soap coming in December, a Grape soap shown above left with our Winemaker Smoking Man. It is made with grapeseed oil and dried grape hulls. The second is a Cocoa Butter soap (right) which is made with cocoa butter, coconut and almond essential oils. Grapeseed oil is a by-product of winemaking. It is a vegetable oil that is pressed from the seeds of grapes. It is good for skin moisturization. Cocoa butter is a tropical rich soap that is moisturizing and soothing to your senses. Double recipes of Shepherd's Pride, Peaches and Creme and Honey Creme soap have also been made and are in the curing process. I'm making another double batch of soap on Thursday night.
