Toledo Soap Co. - small batch soap, handmade in the Glass City.
Firm and long-lasting, these bars create a delightfully bubbly lather. Softly scented, they will release the deep, smokey aroma of amyris oil upon use. The color for this batch is achieved with a small amount of activated charcoal. The color perfectly complements the scent of amyris and brings to mind the color of glowing, sunlit woodsmoke on golden summer evenings.
INGREDIENTS: A gentle handcrafted soap, it is made with organic extra virgin olive oil, organic and sustainably sourced coconut oil, sodium hydroxide*, amyris essential oil, and activated charcoal. Each bar is hand cut to approximately 3.5 ounces (100g).
As simple and sustainable as possible is the goal of Toledo Soap Co.
Hope you enjoy!
*sodium hydroxide (lye), is the magic that turns oils into soap. Through a process called saponification, the lye and oils mix to form an entirely new substance - soap! None of the lye is left after the saponification process is finished. In fact, I add additional amounts of oils to my recipe to create a bar that is gentle and hydrating.
