Fresh soap on the curing rack...

L - R
Bamboo Grapefruit, Sea Glass, Smiley Face
These three batches were just made about 10 days ago, and used in my recent photo shoot for Zaarly.  This photo was taken just after the pour, and then they were put to bed for saponification.  From top to bottom:  Smiley Face and Sea Glass (both contain whole cream!) and Bamboo Grapefruit (with coconut milk).  They all smell wonderful!

After cutting; at this stage of curing, Smiley Face (far right) has unfortunately changed from the bright yellow you see above to a rather dark caramel color. This can happen due to vanilla content in the fragrance oils used, and is not unusual or bad at all.  I wanted this to be original, so I did a scent blend of  Baby Bee Buttermilk, and Honeydew Pear.  The soap still smells just as sweet and happy as before, so the name is staying despite the color morph!   These bars will be fully cured and available in mid August.
