So tomorrow my co-worker Hazel is supposed to be coming over to see how the whole soapmaking process is done from top to bottom. She wants to make a soap that is ideal for the face. This is good because I suffer from extremely dry skin on my face all year round. I have been using the castile soap on my face (a sample from the soap conference), which seemed to be helping with the dryness, but I'm thinking that tomorrow we should make a soap that's also good for acne too. Why not, right? Plus I had a few requests for facial soap too, so the timing is juuuusst right.
So for the past 2 hours or so I've been milling over this recipe for us to use and I think I've finally got it. Right now I'm infusing some special herbs into the olive oil. In this soap there will also be different clays and special oils such as neem and babassu, which your skin will absolutely LOVE!! Neem oil is known for its anti-bacterial properties and is commonly used for eczema, acne, and psoriasis, while babassu oil is known for its protective and conditioning properties and is known to be good for itchy skin.
With all the stuff that's going into this soap it may not be as pretty as the others, but the benefits will far outdo the rest. If we have time we'll make a soap that's good for oily skin too.
