This morning I took a bar of White Sage to the shower.
The ingredients -
Olive Oil, Distilled Water, Coconut Oil, Sodium Hydroxide (Lye), Cocoa Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Castor Oil, Fragrance Oil, White Kaolin Clay
Oh, I LIKE this soap! First of all, the scent is such a clean scent! Not flowery, not powdery, not grassy, not medicinal. Just a clean sage scent, without being too herbaceous. This is scented with a fragrance oil (high quality, skin safe, phthalate free). I love the way it left my skin smelling so clean!
The lather is wonderful! The recipe utilizes cocoa butter, sweet almond oil, coconut oil, and castor oil, all which help to produce a good, stable lather. And I also included a bit of white kaolin clay. This soap actually makes a good shaving soap, with the creamy lather and the slip from the castor oil and clay. Cause you know, girls, you're gonna be wearing shorts soon!
Getting out of the shower, my skin did not feel dry or tight. The amount of olive oil I use in my soaps guarantee a mild and conditioning bar. And the cocoa butter always adds a good amount of conditioning to a soap!
All in all, I give this soap a big thumbs up, and I'll be using it again! :)
