Black Bart Hot Process Soap

Raw black leather with a haze of smoke, sticky fir branches & bitter resins

He was a solid, blunt ox of a man, known around the woodsman's camp as much for his stubbornness as for his style. He was covered from wrists to elbows in a seething mass of black leather straps, cuffs, buckles & cords, & was prone to roaring as he set his shoulder to the great crosscuts of timber that were better suited to men twice his size. But beneath the soot & sap & sweat he harbored an uncommon grace, notable only on the rare chance he laid hands on a blade. Then he would leap & whirl with the grace of a cat as the sword danced in his hand & lay the challenger in tatters at his feet. He'd have made a cracking good pirate if it hadn't been for the seasickness...

This listing is for one (1) enormous 5-ounce bar of hot process soap, made from scratch by me in my own workshop. If you find glycerin soaps a bit too drying, this is the bar for you. I've spent several months developing a coconut- & shea-free, vegan formula that lathers beautifully & is packed with nourishing vegetable oils & butters. I make my hot process soap in small batches, & allow each batch to cure for 3 weeks to ensure a firm, mild bar. Each hand-cut bar measures 3x3x1 inches, & weighs approximately 5 ounces.

As always, your soap will arrive hand-wrapped, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind:

Water, Olive Oil, Palm Oil, Sodium Hydroxide (saponifying agent), Mango Seed Butter, Castor Oil, Palm Kernel Oil, Avocado Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Fragrance Oil, Sugar, Iron Oxide, Green Chromium Oxide, Mica

Since I work in small batches, you may notice slight variations in color from bar to bar. Hot process soap has a marbled, natural appearance. Streaks, swirls & blobs are all part of the charm, & in no way affect the quality of your soap :)

What the heck is hot process soap, anyway? Learn more at my blog: http://paintboxsoapworks.wordpress.com/2012/02/01/so-whats-this-hot-process-thing/
