Clean Slate Hot Process Facial Soap - Charcoal, Tea Tree, Clary Sage, Peppermint Essential Oils... Coconut-Free Formula
Clean Slate Hot Process Soap
Do it clean! Activated charcoal & a blend of tea tree, clary sage, peppermint, lime & lavender essential oils
Prone to oily skin & breakouts? Tired of stripping your skin red & raw with harsh cleansers? Another in a series of spur-of-the-moment batches, Clean Slate is stuffed full of ingredients that will make your face happy! My nourishing, coconut-free formula gets all mixed up with activated charcoal & a green, herby blend of essential oils to gently but thoroughly clean even the oiliest of skin. A drizzle of hydrating agave nectar & jojoba oil ensure that you aren't left feeling like you got scraped with a wire brush. I formulated Clean Slate mainly as a facial bar, but it's mild enough to use on your whole body.
This listing is for one (1) enormous 5-ounce bar of hot process soap, made from scratch by me in my own workshop. If you find glycerin soaps a bit too drying, this is the bar for you. I've spent several months developing a coconut- & shea-free, vegan formula that lathers beautifully & is packed with nourishing vegetable oils & butters. I make my hot process soap in small batches, & allow each batch to cure for 3 weeks to ensure a firm, mild bar. Each hand-cut bar measures 3x3x1 inches, & weighs approximately 5 ounces. As always, your soap will arrive hand-wrapped, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Water, Olive Oil, Organic & Sustainable Palm Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Mango Seed Butter, Castor Oil, Organic Palm Kernel Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Avocado Oil, Jojoba Oil, Agave Nectar, Activated Charcoal, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Oil, Salvia sclarea (Clary Sage) Oil, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint), Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil
Since I work in small batches, you may notice slight variations in color from bar to bar. Hot process soap has a marbled, natural appearance. Streaks, swirls & blobs are all part of the charm, & in no way affect the quality of your soap :) What the heck is hot process soap, anyway?

I don't normally write reviews on any facial soaps earlier than two weeks into using them, but since I've tried out the Clean Slate Scrub previous to this, I'll cave. I've had acne issues since I hit puberty years ago, and coming into my adult life, the fact that my acne stuck around no matter what products I tried, well, it was frustrating and embarrassing, to say the least. I tried out Clean Slate on the recommendation of a friend, and I can honestly say that I haven't seen my skin this clear in a long time. I have combination skin, so I usually end up with dry skin on my forehead and nose, with acne coming in on my cheeks and chin. I have been using the soap every day for the past week, and every time it leaves my face feeling super clean, but not dried out at all, which has always been an issue with any other facial soap. The scent is fantastic, and lingers just long enough to be refreshing, but dissipates shortly after so that it's not bothersome. Definitely in love with this product.
Great sensory experience

I love the Clean Slate scrub, but I seem to fly through a jar, so I tried the bar for a long lasting product. I love it. Same wonderful smell. I use this is with a soft, dense facial brush. It foams nicely and leaves my skin feeling clean and toned. And helping clean up those pesky dirty pores. Highly recommended!

I was terrified of acne breakouts when I started hormone therapy, but this has kept my skin under control. I love how clean and fresh my face feels after I use it, too.

My husband raves about this one, too. Lathers nicely, feels great, smells minty and herbal but not overpoweringly so. Just perfect.
