Mandinka Hot Process Soap - Spiced Honey, Incense, Saffron... Coconut-Free Formula
Mandinka Hot Process Soap
I'm dancing the Seven Veils... A heady & exotic blend of spiced honey, carnation, sandalwood & rich saffron
Deep burgundy shot with veins of gold, Mandinka is a deep, sexy blend reminiscent of sticky incense & shifting sands. Spicy & almost edible, it lingers on the skin as a rich honeyed floral, cut through with dry sandalwood and saffron. It's heady, languid & decidedly feminine...
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, 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 :)

Sweet & Spicy

This scent is beautiful! Very classic-femme, with spicy honey and warm woods. It makes showering feel like a luxury experience, and the scent clings for a little while after you get out. I plan on purchasing the perfume oil to layer.
The hot process soap is HUGE (I cut mine into thirds since I'm clumsy), and makes a great lather that feels really creamy and moisturizing. My skin feels really smooth after rather than dry and tight like I get with some storebought soap bars. Love them!

I love your products. Love giving them as gifts too. I've been using Mandika soap and lotion for several years. It's my signature sent now.
Beautiful and Exotic!

I absolutely love this soap. I have yet to use it, but the smell is amazing. It's sweet but heady, and indeed almost edible. It's not extremely floral, but just enough to balance the sweetness from the honey.
I LOVE this scent!

This was a gift to my daughter and she loves it. You have to smell this to believe it!
