Our standard mixture of organic coconut and sunflower oils make up this bath and body bar. This summer, we've added organic essential oil of lemongrass for a fresh scent.

Vegetable Soap [Sodium Cocoate, Sodium Sunflowerate, Glycerin, Water, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Organic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil], Organic Cymbopogon Flexuosus (Lemongrass) Essential Oil

Our Lemongrass Bath & Body Bar uses Coconut and Sunflower Seed Oils as the base vegetable oils for the soap. This combination gives us a firm bar that also lathers and cleans without drying your skin.

Sourced from Century Sun Oil out of Pulaski, WI, sunflower oil is a local alternative to the olive oil we've used for bath and body bars before.

Sodium Cocoate: This is the chemical name of saponified (that is, 'made into soap') coconut oil. It's the chemical that grabs onto both dirt and water to do the cleaning.

Sodium Sunflowerate: This is the chemical name of the saponified sunflower seed oil. 

Glycerin: This substance is chemically a type of alcohol and is naturally created when the oil is converted into soap. Glycerin is known for skin-softening abilities and is an effective solvent, meaning it can dissolve substances such as stains and dirts. 

Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil and Organic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil : There is always some coconut and sunflower seed oils left in the soap after conversion to sodium cocoate and sodium sunflowerate. This is because we use sodium hydroxide, or lye, in the conversion process. Leaving these excess oil in the soap not only ensures there is no remaining lye in the finished product, it also gives the soap its lather and moisturizing feel. Some soapmakers refer to this as 'superfatting' and more oil remaining results in a softer, more moisturizing bar.

Water: Water is used in the soapmaking process as a substance that dissolves lye and then is a medium so the lye can reach all of the oil to react. After being useful in this process, the water is allowed to evaporate from the soap over a period of several weeks, and the resulting dried bar has very little water. There is only about 5% water remaining in the finished bars, thus making them more shelf stable than a liquid soap that would require a preservative due to the high (about 60%) water. 

Each handmade bar is approximately 4 oz.

Lovely soap!

I have just about used up my first bar and have already re-ordered more! The lemongrass sent is so fresh. It's not overpowering either. Also, the lemongrass scent lasts to the very end. It doesn't wane at all. I appreciate how this bar lasts. I keep it on a soap saver so it doesn't sit in water. The bar doesn't get soft or mushy and keeps it shape until the end.

Smells so good!

I love their bath soaps! Good lather and nice for my skin. And the lemongrass smells SO GOOD!
Reminds me of my stepdad and the lemon drop candies he carried. He always gave me one at the start of every play, movie, or performance. The scent holds the memory of lovely things tug o come. Great way to start the day!

Love these lemongrass bars!

My husband bought me a six-pack of the lemongrass bars as a Mother's Day gift and I couldn't be more delighted with them. They smell so refreshing! It makes those rare occasions when I actually get to take a long shower all the more enjoyable. They work great either in hand or rubbed into a loofah - lots of bubbles either way :-)
