When I was looking to improve my Gardeners & Mechanic's soap, I was looking to create a bar that not only did not dry out the hands, but was also deodorizing and sufficiently abrasive to get off the dirt and grime. With regular soap bars, when I cleaned up, I often I liked to use a plastic mesh dish scrubbie. I was seeking to achieve the same effect in this soap bar and am very happy with the results. I hope you are as well.

For most skin types used as a hand soap bar. Due to abrasiveness, this is not recommended as a body bar.
Scent: Light fragrance blend of herb and cucumber
Used for: cleansing
Weight: at least 4 oz.
Lasts: about 4-6 weeks or longer with proper care.

Ingredients: Cocos Nucifera (coconut) oil, Olea Europaea (olive) oil, Lard, sodium hydroxide, Elaeis Guineensis (palm) oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Ricinus Communis (castor) oil, cornmeal, coffee grounds, ground walnut shells, Kosher Activated Charcoal, fragrance, Tetrasodium EDTA, Sodium Citrate

For my beauty products, I try to keep it as simple as possible. I believe that the closer we keep our beauty products to its natural state, the better it is for our skin. Most of my items are either naturally scented or scented with essential oils. A minority are scented with fragrance oils and are labeled appropriately. Some have preservatives that are necessary to keep the organic additives from spoiling. The Tetrasodium EDTA (in soap) helps it to not only to be used with hard water, but also helps keep the oil ingredients from clogging some drains. I do keep all chemical additives in the smallest amount necessary to do the job, in order to not interfere with the goodness that the soap has to offer the skin.

The simplicity of nature in each and every item!

To keep soap from getting gummy in a standard soap dish, try my wood soap saver! Comes in two sizes:
