Mama® artisan soap is hand-crafted with olive, coconut and palm oils, using the cold process method of soap making. Our bars have an outstanding lather and leave your skin feeling soft and silky. Unlike commercial brands, our soap retains its glycerin, which makes for a naturally moisturizing soap.
This soap of the month was such a hit last year that we gave it an encore! Anise and spearmint essential oils may seem like unlikely allies, but they make wonderful bedfellows. Anise essential oil has notes of black licorice and is known for its calming properties. It has been around for a long time and in ancient days was thought to help insomnia. Uplifting spearmint is a milder member of the mint family that is refreshing and cleansing. There hasn't been a better pairing since Thelma and Louise.
Fun Fact: Anise is a key ingredient in Absinthe drinks and was purported to be an aphrodisiac by Pliny the Elder, so much so that he recommended it be used in wedding cakes.
We cut each bar a chunky 5 oz, and cure it for 3 weeks. The finished bars look splendidly natural, like the ingredients that they are made of. Please note: soap design will vary with each bar, as all our soaps are made by hand in small batches.
Our soaps are great in the shower! We use them with a nylon puff for a great lather.
Ingredients: Saponified oils of olive, palm & coconut, botanicals, & essential oils.
Product tip: For best use, we recommend cutting the bar into thirds before using. This not only creates a more ergonomic shape that fits in your hand, it also maximizes the life of your soap.
