I created this soap as a Christmas gift for my husband and daughters. I made a gift basket of sorts for each of them that included this soap, a new razor, and refills. This soap is smooth and wonderful and lovely. My husband raves about it. Though it doesn't look like much, it really functions amazingly well for its purpose. This was made with coconut, palm, sunflower, castor and olive oils, and the addition of cocoa butter and bentonite clay. There is no need for aftershave, and this … [Read more...] about Clean Shaving Soap
You may have heard that I have a thing for soap :) I spend a lot of time researching... just about everything pertaining to soap and soap crafting.
