I have been busy making soap and practicing my photography!
First up is a new beer soap! I love using beer soap as shampoo. The sucrose and maltose
sugars found in beer, tightens and strengthens hair cuticles for enhanced shine. I purposely tried to make this beer soap as appealing to your eyes as it is for your hair and skin. I used a dark stout beer for the base of the soap then added a whipped white soap to mimic the head of a mug of beer. This soap's scent is a spicy-sensuous sandlewood, reminiscent of a walk in the forest after a rain. I call this soap Manly Mug of Beer Soap and it's part of my new men's line that will be available soon.
Also part of this new line is my new Soothing Shave Bar. I've amped up the foaming lather oils and added a touch of oxide charcoal to pack this bar with skin soothing properties that make for a great shave.
Retro, yes. But this is one of those cases where the old methods are actually better. A lot better, in fact. Specially formulated shaving bars offer a better shave than modern creams and gels that have been popular since the 1960s. A fine shaving soap produces a lighter and slicker lather, facilitating a smooth and nick-free glide. This bar also has the spicy-sensuous sandlewood scent.
Finally, better photography shows off my handmade soap dishes. These dishes are always made from reclaimed wood and are specially designed to keep your skin care investment dry between uses. This dish prolongs your soap's life and makes each shower or shave as luxurious as the first!
