Egg White Soap:
Egg white soap has been loved by people all over the world for more than a century. Swedish soapmakers created the original egg white soap in the early 1900s. Egg whites are known for tightening skin, creating a healthy glow, and diminishing fine lines. Lecithin, found naturally in egg whites, may actually help heal skin conditions and is recommended by some experts in the treatment of psoriasis. The egg whites in my soap are fresh, not powdered.
This wonderful soap is now formulated with kaolin clay, which is rich in minerals and is one of the mildest of all clays. It is suitable for all skin types, even those with sensitive skin. Kaolin clay helps stimulate circulation to the skin while gently cleansing, detoxifying, exfoliating and softening. Since kaolin clay does not draw oils from the skin, it can be used on dry skin without negative results. It also brings silkiness to soap, and helps retain the soap’s fragrance.
This egg white soap is an essential oils only soap, with orange, lemon, tangerine and ylang ylang essential oils (see below for more information about those essential oils). The lather in this soap is rich and has a light, delicious fragrance.
You can use it as a facial and body soap. It can also be used for a facial mask by allowing a generous application of lather to rest on your skin for a few minutes before rinsing.

I wanted to give a few words of thanks and praise to you! I've enjoyed hand-crafted soap for a long time, and I have tried many kinds. I must say that so far, I just love yours best! I hadn't mentioned to my husband anything about having any new soap but just set out the Woodland Splendor goat's milk bar. He made a point of raving about it when he came out of his bath! He really liked the fragrance, and usually he just uses whatever is out, and no comments. I had already fallen in love with it, not only for its beautiful woodsy fragrance, but the touch of gold was so beautiful and unexpected!
You included a few samples in my package, one of which was the egg white/rose water soap. It is so creamy, and right now I'm having a flare-up of dyshidrotic eczema. I've suffered with this condition on and off for many years. Your soap seems to calm it, so I ordered two bars. I used it in the middle of the night and truly experienced some comfort. Later, I tried a thin layer of castor oil, followed by washing with the egg white soap again, rinsing with cool water, and just patting dry. I couldn't get over how good my face felt. I think this soap is very healing for me. Thank you!
