As promised, here are the photos of my new Mint-Eucalyptus soap for oily & acne-prone skin. I have to tell you that I'm having a blast with the color and swirlling! Very exciting. ( Jen, I share your puzzlement with alkanet...please let me know if you get it figured out, and I will do the same!)
The white layer has Cornmint EO, while the dark layer (colored with Alkanet) has Eucalyptus EO and bentonite clay. This soap is VERY LIGHTLY superfatted with extra virgin olive oil so as not to clog pores.
I'll be looking for a few "testers" who have oily skin or acne, willing to try a bar and give me some honest feedback. Please either post if you're interested, or contact me through my website
http://www.heirloomsoapworks.com/ I'll plan on shipping the soap around August 10th or so.
I saw a lovely soap colored with yellow dock at The Soap Making Forum that I wanted you all to see...I love the color! I probably don't need to tell you that I'm steeping some in olive oil as we speak! : )
I'll post pics when the latest experiment is completed! I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July!
Happy Skin, everyone! ~Becky
