Here is my new shaving soap, scented lightly with Frankincense and citrus essential oils. The Australian black clay and BC Glacial Marine clay add the necessary slip required for shaving and ample castor oil, lanolin, and vegetable shortening lend a very traditional, creamy, stable lather. Goat milk is used instead of water for extra skin conditioning and moisturizing.
I’ve been busy trying new things! If I had to make the same soap all the time I would get bored. I keep the most popular ones, drop ones that were slow sellers and replace them with something new. Goat milk soap connoisseurs will be happy. I now have three varieties of goat milk soap (so creamy and moisturizing), all of them still containing generous amounts of shea and cocoa butter. I have fallen in love with Australian Black Clay, which I’ve combined with BC Glacial Marine clay in a bath and body soap and a new shaving soap. With the black clay, the shaving soap looks something like a hockey puck and is made with the traditional shaving soap ingredients of lanolin and castor oil, and it is yet another of my goat milk soaps.
I am so pleased with how this soap turned out. So far, everyone who has tried it says it is the best soap I’ve ever made. I knew Australian Pink Clay had a fabulous reputation as a skin care clay; I didn’t expect it to result in a bar of soap quite this heavenly. It glides over the skin like silk without being slippery and lathers beautifully. Knowing the resulting bar would be a subtle, natural shade of pink, I decided to scent it with lavender and rose.
Ingredients: Saponified coconut, olive, soybean, palm, and castor oils, shea and cocoa butters, Australian pink clay, lavender and rose essential oils.
