You can’t really see the granulated sugar on the top but this was totally unexpected. As of now (over six hours after unmoulding and slicing), the soap still hasn’t changed colour and I must say that I love its creamy appearance. Lets see if time will change that.

In the meantime, I’m awaiting the arrival of supplies for my next batch of soap – I’ll be redoing my chocolate marble soap but with some changes to it, namely the swirl factor. I’m also gravitating back and forth between an all-palm free line or having just one or two soaps with palm oil (certified bio, of course). I have to consider the cost as palm oil alternatives like shea, cocoa and mango butter are more expensive.

By the way, do you see anything different with the content and the site’s menu? Hehehe.

  1. I love your blog! I linked over here from SMF your soap is so lovely! And super cool that you love all the same things that I do 🙂 I started making soaps the end of last year and I am determined to not use palm oil, never have and hopefully never will. I enjoy using olive, coconut, shea, cocoa and castor, so far so good. I can’t wait to experiment with other oils. I look forward to seeing more of your soap. Oh and I had commented about loving the name Mabel, I get a smile on my face whenever I see you post, my late grandmother’s name was Mabel and I would of love to use that name for one of my children 🙂
