I recently added this soap to my Current Range of Soaps album on my Facebook page and thought I would share it here with you as well.
This is a lovely cleansing & balancing soap full of antioxidants, especially created for troubled teen skin. Scented with a fresh and fruity scent combining mango, passionfruit, papaya, apple, citrus and sweetpea; teamed with fresh pureed mango and strawberries, herbal tea and a blend of oils and butters that contain anti-infammatory and calming properties. For normal to oily skin ~
You can see the strawberry seeds if you look closely. I included my favourite rice bran and macadamia nut oils in this blend along with mango butter. This recipe was developed with my daughter's help when I first began cold process soapmaking. I asked her what ingredients she would like me to add to a batch of soap just for her. "Mango and strawberries" she replied. I was surprised to say the least as I didn't even know if fruit would work in CP soap and envisioned my batch overheating or even erupting into a soapy volcano! All that fruit sugar had me worried, so I poured it into individual moulds and kept it cool.
The result made a lovely cleansing soap that my daughter found soothed and helped her facial skin by minimising the redness associated with blemishes. When I researched I found that the combination of oils and fruits we used are all known to have skincare benefits. I just love serendipity!
Have a wonderful day *smile*
