Facial Soap

It’s finally ready for testing! Back in early April I made up a small batch of what I hope will prove to be the final version of my long awaited facial soap.  I’ve been using it myself for the last week, and I have to say I’m really really happy with it.   It has a light, creamy lather and leaves my face feeling clean but so soft and not at all tight.

It’s unscented, uncoloured, and alongside the more commonplace ingredients, it also contains argan oil, jojoba oil, evening primrose oil and sweet almond oil.  My feeling is it’s suitable for most skin types, but I’m no skincare expert, so I’ve asked for some volunteer testers via my Facebook page.  I’m hoping to send out some samples this week:

This isn’t the final shape, and I have some work to do on packaging still, but hopefully I’ll be able to offer them for sale soon, together with a charcoal version for oilier skins.

      1. Ahh, okay. No problem, bet you have a list of testers as long as your arm. I know I have people wanting to test out my goodies and I’m only in training. I don’t understand the soap making process so if I’m asking a daft question about PH, I’m sorry.

  2. Thanks. I know I have to PH test my skincare lotions etc, as much for ensuring the preservative in those with waters actually works. Soaps don’t need a preservative adding I guess. Must try and make soap, I have bought a book, its finding the time.

  3. […] also made up a big batch of my facial soap.  I’ve had a lot of positive feedback from the trial bars that went out, and many more […]
