Green Tea Bamboo Soap

I did a full water replacement with coconut milk, on this rustic looking soap. I used green tea butter from Brambleberry.com . I Added 1oz of bamboo powder to a total batch of 52 oz of batter. Bamboo powder has an exfoliating texture similar to a salt bar without having to change your recipe around to account for the salt. I added some titanium dioxide to hopefully offset the discoloring from the fragrance(NG Loving Spell) and the coconut milk (cures to an off white). I made this by hot process method so with limited time at the end of the cook I did a simple two color hangar swirl with spirulina powder.

Hot Process Carrot & Turmeric Soap

For this recipe I boiled some carrots in filtered water and then pureed them with a little bit of distilled water.

I am going to use 1.25 oz of carrot puree per lb.

I have decided to add my turmeric directly into the oils and heat them for several hours to infuse the oil with the turmeric before adding the lye. I will be adding 1 teaspoon per lb of turmeric.

Aside from the water I added to the carrots the rest of the water is substituted with Coconut milk.

I added an a superfat of 5% with Cocoa Butter after the cook.

No scents used here, no fancy design, just good carrot soap for sensitive skin.
