BABY BEE BUTTERMILK: A delicate fragrance cocktail reminiscent of Burt's Bees Baby Bee Buttermilk Lotion.
HONEY, TURMERIC & MILK: Honey is incredible for your skin. It is a natural humectant—it attracts and retains moisture from the air into the deepest layers of your skin for penetrating, long-lasting hydration. The enzymes in honey clarify skin and keep pores clear and clean. The antibacterial and antifungal properties of honey thwart bacteria that can lead to breakouts. Honey is loaded with antioxidants, enzymes and other nutrients that nourish, cleanse and hydrate your skin. Honey’s antioxidants will repair and protect your skin. The anti-inflammatory and antibacterial compounds calm redness and irritation, decrease the appearance of scars, and increase healing and tissue regeneration. Turmeric has been incorporated into this soap not only for a color boost and mild exfoliation, but for its antiseptic and healing properties. Lightly fragranced with a delicious honey smell.

COFFEE SOAP – Great for chefs, gardeners, mechanics and more!
Coffee can provide more than a caffeine jolt to energize you in the morning. I was surprised to learn that coffee is touted as the world’s greatest source of antioxidants, making it a great addition to skin care.
Anti-aging: The antioxidants in caffeine can attack and eliminate the free radicals that are responsible for causing premature aging of skin.
Helps fight wrinkles and fine lines: The caffeine present in coffee can firm the appearance of skin, helping to reduce signs of wrinkles and fine lines.
Soothes sensitive skin: The anti-inflammatory properties of caffeine help reduce redness and inflammation.
Absorbs odors: Coffee and their grounds are said to be one of nature’s best deodorizers, making coffee soap excellent for kitchen and other use to remove tough odors.
Detoxifying and cleansing: It is believed that the enzymes found in coffee can aid in detoxifying and cleansing skin, making it an excellent choice for gardeners, mechanics, and those with acne.
Exfoliation: Ground coffee beans exfoliate skin naturally to brighten and revive a dull complexion. Additionally, the acid in coffee gives you some chemical exfoliation on top of the mechanical exfoliation.
This soap also has pumice for an additional boost of cleansing and exfoliation.
My coffee soap has been made using my goat’s milk soap recipe. As such, it contributes extra moisturizing qualities, cleansing and other benefits. As with my other goat’s milk soaps, it has tussah silk for extra luxury, and kaolin clay to help stimulate circulation to the skin while gently cleansing, detoxifying, exfoliating and softening.
In addition to the natural fragrance provided by the coffee, it has been lightly fragranced with espresso.
