Salty Lemon Apothecary
Tobacco & Bay Leaf Soap
Tobacco & Bay Leaf is a bastille bar, which means that it is 70% olive oil. This makes an extremely gentle soap perfect for those with sensitive skin. This fragrance has top notes of bay leaf mixed with fir, cedarwood, and bergamot, blended together with a warm tobacco base note, which gives this bar a wonderful clean aroma.
This listing is for one bar approximately 4.5 oz in weight.
Ingredients: Olive Oil, Distilled Water, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Castor Oil, Sodium Hydroxide (Lye), Fragrance Oil, Sodium Lactate
Each Salty Lemon Apothecary soap bar is made in small batches using the old fashioned way to make soap, the cold process method. Each bar is cured for at least 4 weeks to ensure a long lasting and mild soap. In the cold process method sodium hydroxide (lye) is used to turn oils into soap. When fats in the oils and the lye go through a process called saponification glycerin is formed. In the final product lye is no longer present.
Each bar is packed full of skin loving ingredients and luxury butters. We never use palm oil, which has been linked to massive deforestation, habitat degradation, climate change, and contributing to the loss of Orangutans and Sumatran tigers. Many traditional soaps use this ingredient. We believe in making the most ethical choices for our planet to keep Earth and those we share it with healthy.
Our soaps are intended to be used on your body and hands. Handmade soap will not leave your skin feeling dry or itchy after a shower. No residue will be left on your skin. You can even use it to shave with! You will be amazed at the difference from commercial soaps!
You can swipe the bar on a shower pouf or washcloth for about 10 seconds to get a rich creamy lather. Using this method will make your soap last longer.
CARING FOR YOUR SOAP
Be sure to keep your soap dry in between use. Make sure it sits in a dish that has proper drainage and is not directly under your shower stream.
