Original Spice - Cream Shave Soap
with Cocoa Butter
A rendition of the original Old Spice fragrance. This fabulous masculine scent begins with top notes of lemon, orange, and aldehydes, followed by middle notes of carnation, jasmine, and geranium, sitting on base notes of ambergris, tonka bean, and musk.
Ingredients: Distilled Water, Stearic Acid, Coconut Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Cocoa Butter, Glycerin, Castor Oil, Sodium Lactate, Original Spice FO.
**No potassium hydroxide remains after the soap is mixed with the oils/fats and the soap has finished curing after 4-8 weeks.
-Allow to dry between uses.
-Keep soap away from direct shower stream or running water as much as possible to avoid soap getting overly saturated.
Cream Shave Soap can be used in 2 ways:
1 - Directly out of the jar: thoroughly wet shave brush & remove excess dripping water, place brush in jar, swirl brush around top of soap to make lather, the more swirling = the more lather, use lather on brush to shave. Leave remaining lather in jar & close lid - you can reuse this lather for next time.
2 - Remove a dollop from jar: the cream soap is soft & pliable so you can remove a dollop from the jar & use in a shave cup.
*If you experience any irritation, stop use immediately.*
About My Soap:
I make, create, test, design, package, & ship all my soaps. I have full control of the process and ingredients. All of my soaps are made with the traditional 'cold process' method.
I make all soaps from scratch, using Oils & Sodium Hydroxide (lye). This process allows the oils & lye to combine to become soap (through Saponification). The end result is TRUE & PURE soap like it has been made for hundreds of years. The saponification process completely changes the molecular structure of the oils & lye, so there is only pure soap with no chemicals.
I choose oils based on their properties, for example: coconut oil is very cleansing, shea & cocoa butter is very conditioning, etc. I choose additives based on their functions. Some additives can be omitted, so some are purely to make a soap more luxurious, bubbly, or just smell & look great!
