Black Licorice Soap Bar
Our signature blend of oils with black walnut hull powder and anise star essential oil to make a wonderful licorice bar of soap. Anise has been used by fishermen for years to mask their scent from the fish. Many soap makers have called anise soap "fisherman's soap" for this reason, but we want our soap to appeal to more than fishermen. Since licorice has been popular for years because of it's anise scent, we thought it would be appropriate to name our handmade anise soap "Black Licorice". Best For Skin Type: Moderate/Most Skin Types (Moderately Oily to Moderately Dry) Ingredients are now listed on the "Ingredients..." page. Bars are approximately 4 oz but will vary from approx 4-5 oz.
Black Licorice (Vegan, All Natural)
Ingredients: Vegetable Oil Blend (Olive Oil, Organic Sustainable Palm Oil, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter), Water, Sodium Hydroxide, Anise Star Essential Oil, Black Walnut Powder.
Why do we use the oils we use in soaps? What are the benefits?
Olive Oil: A traditional emollient used in soap because it is mild and gives a "moisturized feel" to the soap.
Sunflower Oil: Very similar to olive with a lighter/cleaner feel to it. The skin feels oh so nice when sunflower is used.
Shea Butter: Makes a creamier bar with a more "moisturized feel". With sensitive skin, reduced lather can be a good thing, so shea butter can be a real assistant, but in the end this has to be "in balance" with the rest of the soap.
Organic Palm: When we use palm, we use organic "sustainable" palm, for the reasons of deforestation in tropical regions (see below for further explanation). Palm and similar, are pretty much necessary to make a harder, stable bar of soap that is appealing to the population majority.
Coconut: One word... Lather. Coconut adds to hardness and creates "big bubbles" in soap. A little goes a long way, too much can be "too effective".
Hemp: We use unrefined hemp to avoid chemical contamination possible in the refining process. It also gives a nice natural aroma to the soap. Hemp oil adds a unique skin feel and moisturizing effect.
