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.
Winter is a time of rest and renewal, and it's also a time of dry skin and dormant plant life. As we were brainstorming our January soap of the month, the two words that kept coming to mind were moisturizing and green! Avocado oil is a beautiful green-colored oil that is deeply moisturizing and soothing. Combined with the healing powers of aloe (we used pureed organic leaves), this soap is gentle and deeply restorative. We scented it with sweet and slightly citrusy litsea cubeba essential oil to help give you a little lift form the winter doldrums.
Fun fact: Litsea Cubeba smells like it's a citrus fruit, but it's actually a pepper-like fruit from an evergreen shrub, aka May chang.
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.
