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 refreshingly herbal aroma of eucalyptus oil upon use. The color is achieved with a finely milled, cosmetic-grade sea clay mined right here in the US. Part of an ancient seabed, this clay imparts a light, earthy green tone to the soap that perfectly complements the crisp, minty-piney scent of eucalyptus.
INGREDIENTS: A gentle handcrafted soap, it is made with organic extra virgin olive oil, organic and sustainably sourced coconut oil, sodium hydroxide*, organic eucalyptus globulus essential oil, and sea clay. 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; the lye and oil molecules have broken each other apart and reformed into soap and glycerin, a soothing, natural humectant. Additionally, I add more oil than is needed for my recipe (called superfatting) to create a bar that is gentle and hydrating.
