Better Bars

When I started to make Magic Hands soaps, I used the original formula which included canola oil.  I recently switched it out to add more olive oil and add rice bran oil.  I also superfatted the soaps to create a more moisturizing soap that we all could use.

I reformulated the Sherpa Sherpa and even added goat's milk because it makes every bar a better more moisturizing soap, and as our inventory gets low, we will be offering Jackie's soaps with a new and better formula.  The Sherpa Sherpa will be ready on July 25th.

In addition to Magic Hands remakes, I decided to keep Thai Sticky Rice around, superfat it and add goat's milk.  So now we have a goat's milk, shea butter, cocoa butter bar that smells so scrumptious to me.  We still have some of the older formula, and these bars must cure.  The cure date for the new bars will also be July 25th.  MMMMM.

Newest batch of Thai Sticky Rice.

Just a side bar:  If you love Sherpa Sherpa and don't want to spend the money, I have imperfect soap listed in the Absolute Soap Etsy Shop for only $3 each.  The reasoning behind dropping canola oil was because I made a batch of 50 soaps and got tiny brown spots which are only cosmetically unappealing (but really, they are just minor....only 2 or three tiny spots per bar).  There is nothing wrong with the soap at all, I have some in my shower and am loving it.

As we move forward, we get better and hone in on excellence.  Thank you for your undying support and love.
