Black Soap made with Activated Charcoal

$5.00

Black Soap's color comes from activated charcoal, and the scent comes from a pleasant, mild blend of fragrance and essential oils. The activated charcoal provides exfoliation and detoxification properties. It lets you know it’s there, but it’s not overpowering. And it doesn’t take anything away from the soap itself.

SoapArt’s soaps from scratch contain a combination of high quality oils that produce lots of big, fluffy bubbles along with great lather. There are no detergents in them. You may notice that sodium hydroxide (lye) is listed as an ingredient. Lye is what gives the soap its cleansing power. The cool thing is, the finished soap doesn’t contain any raw lye because the oils “eat up” the lye, in a process called saponification. 

My recipes are carefully designed to ensure that there are plenty of oils to eat up all the lye. I like to include a bit of extra oil to ensure that your skin will feel moisturized and soft after using my soap. I am careful to test all of my soaps to make sure there is no extra lye running around. So if you have heard stories about lye-heavy soaps, or if you have personally experienced some, have no fear of that happening with my soaps. However, like any soap, it will hurt if it gets in your eyes! And it is slippery when wet 

I make the soaps from scratch using the cold process method. I make small batches, and lovingly cut each individual bar. Because of the handmade nature of the soaps, each bar is unique. Your soap will look similar to, but my not look exactly like, the one shown in the photo. That’s part of the charm of homemade soaps made in small batches.

Soaps from scratch do best when placed in a soap dish that allows for some circulation of air around them. Or you can put them in a bag that allows the excess moisture to escape. If the soaps don’t have adequate ventilation, they may get soft or gooey and they won’t last as long. But don’t worry – they will still bubble, lather and clean even if they get a bit goopy.

I also offer complete loaves of soap (equivalent to about 8 bars). If you’re interested in purchasing one of those, please contact me and tell me what you’d like. Custom orders take up to a month because soaps from scratch require a one month to cure. Curing gives the soap time to get rid of excess moisture, resulting in a firmer, bubblier soap.
