The Nihilist Hot Process Soap - Unscented, Colorant-Free... Coconut-Free Formula
The Nihilist Hot Process Soap
Sweet, wonderful nothing. Zip. Zilch. Nada.
A beautifully plain, unadorned bar for the purists, the delicate-skinned, & those looking for a bar that's safe to use on the face. Pale ivory & delicately marbled, The Nihilist smells of nothing but the oils & butters used to make it - slightly warm & toasted, vaguely green & waxy, as plain & pure as you can get.
This listing is for one (1) enormous 5-ounce bar of *unscented* 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, Sugar,
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 :)

My holy grail bar soap!

The Nihilist is my absolute favorite bar soap ever. I have tried many different bar soaps, and have never met one that didn't dry out my skin or leave me feeling too squeaky after - until Paintbox's incredible hot process soaps. This one never feels too drying, yet cleans incredibly well with just a little bit, so one bar lasts for a very long time. I truly appreciate how it's coconut-free and has no added scent at all, which is rare to find. I've gone through several Paintbox hot process soaps now over the course of a year, and will absolutely continue ordering them. Thank you for making these wonderful soaps!! :)
