The Lather Project: 30 Soaps in 30 Days - Day 26, Soap 26

Day #26!

I wanted to try something creatively different and totally cool!

Hot-process soap can be a real bear to work with when it comes to design. The consistency of the raw soap is… well, ‘gloppy‘.

Remember the kid’s gimmicky toy (if you could call it that) ‘Slime’ from back in the ‘70‘s & ‘80‘s? It came in a little garbage bucket and it was basically green goop - it was gross, smelled funny and had virtually no purpose whatsoever. I was trying to explain it last night to my 10 year old step-daughter after a trip to Cracker Barrel Restaurant. My husband and I were reminiscing about all the retro toys and candy they had for sale and Slime just came up.

Well, anyway, raw soap is kind of the consistency of Slime - but really hot!

So it’s pretty difficult to work with, and once it starts to cool off and you add fragrance and colorants, it begins to harden into more of a play-dough texture. So you can imagine how tricky it is to try and get it into a mold and then have it come out looking gorgeous!

Well, I wanted to try to represent sort of a floral bouquet - pinks, yellows, purples and greens - since the fragrance I blended is Flowers & Ferns. It kind of ended up looking more like scooped sherbet, but I’m okay with that! It was fun!

Here’s the description for Soap #26:

Bellissima Handmade Triple Milk Blend Bath Soap in Flowers & Ferns

Our amazing Triple Milk Blend Soap in Flowers & Ferns is incredibly creamy and full of lather with our triple blend of protein-rich milk (goat, cow & organic coconut) and luxurious all-veggie oils like olive, high-oleic sunflower seed and rice bran to leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated.

Flowers & Ferns delivers a bouquet of sweet, bright flowers and earthy, herbal greens. Morning Lily, Jasmine, Geranium, Hyacinth and Violet blend beautifully with green mosses, clover, rosemary, patchouli and cedar. A touch of zesty lemon adds an element of surprise to this clean, floral, ultimately fresh scent!
