We’ve been nerding out and getting pretty excited about our newest release: Hops Soap!
A friend of ours who does product testing told us he had “some” surplus dried hops, and wanted to know if we could do anything with them. Given that we all hate wasting things, and we had heard that people use hops to make soap...our Hops Soap was born!
We were expecting a few bag-fulls of hops. Instead, we got enough hops to infuse into oil to make hundreds of bars of soap. For the record: 50 pounds of hops are a lot of hops.
The hops themselves are Cascade hops, which are very common in beer making. The hops give the soap a light scent and beautiful earthy green color. That color is 100% from the hops. We never add additional colors or scents beyond what’s in our ingredient list.
The full ingredient list includes: Vegetable Soap [Sodium Cocoate, Sodium Sunflowerate, Glycerin, Water, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Organic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Humulus Lupulus (Hops)]
After we extracted the goodness outta ‘em, the remaining hop cones were put into our compost bin. This was a great opportunity for us to do something interesting with an ingredient we don’t usually get our hands on very readily and redirect some waste away from the landfill! We’re looking forward to your thoughts on this new soap.
These bars are available now and be in stock until we run out. We’re not sure when (or if) we’ll have these again. Don’t miss your chance to jump at such a great opportunity for a fun, new spring soap. You can see the updated Bath & Body Soap Scent Release Calendar on our website.
