Coffee Goat's Milk Soap

Thank God for rebatching!  As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I had a major mishap while making coffee soap.  It overheated in the mold actually boiling out!  I could hear it boiling as I stood behind a closed door, slightly freaking out.   I've never had this happen before and it made for quite a mess and was a little scary.  All I could picture was me opening the mold and all the soap exploding out!  I'm happy to report, this didn't happen.

In fact, through rebatching (grating and remelting the soap) I was able to save the batch and make  a very beautiful bar of soap.

Adding coffee (caffeine) to skincare products has many benefits.  First, caffeine has been shown to reduce redness.  Because caffeine is a vasodilator, which means that it constricts blood cells, it can firm and tighten skin.

Because this is a rebatched bar of soap and I'll never be able to replicate (thankfully) the process again, it's being offered as a one-time special for only $3.  Order at Lora's Beauty while supplies last.
