Cyprus Hot Process Soap
Noble green cypress & rich moss, waxy olive blossom, ancient sandalwood & musk
Sometimes, you want to smell like a hero... Cyprus is the scent of blinding sun on turquoise seas, of windswept evergreens, of ancient olive groves & the golden thread of adventure. Deep cypress, moss, fresh air & flowering grass notes stand out against classic sandalwood & an undercurrent of gentle olive blossom. Strong but civilized, Cyprus leaves you smelling fresh, clean, & charmingly irresistible.
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 (saponifying agent), Mango Seed Butter, Castor Oil, Organic Palm Kernel Oil, Avocado Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Fragrance Oil, Sugar, Chromium Green Oxide, Mica
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.
