I want to share the new product line in my store - goats mik soaps!!!

I have been a busy bee lately. You know, its so awesome when you do something you love - you dont mind not knowing where your head is, you are actually happy!

Through this year since I have been selling online, people kept asking me if I do that time, I did not. I was a bit unsure if I ever wanted to offer soaps. That was out of my comfort zone.

Well, that changed! I finally plunged into it! My first dilemma (and it still is as I am still filling up the store) was wha
t scent should I make first? Would it be something for the season and the holiday or something that I actually enjoy smelling. I decided to mix them up and start with a small selection, while slowly adding more scent choices of soap.

The first one I made was a soap for my husband. He wanted something exfoliating so he would be able to use it as a scrubbing soap. I added some pumice stone and loofah and
voila! He loves it! This coming from a guy that is addicted to body wash and doesnt want to ever use a bar of soap. That actually gave me the encouragement to make more and add them to my store.

For now, I have these scents in my store:

Oakmoss Sandalwood, Iced Pumpkin, Birthday Cake, Lilac in Bloom, Nutcracker and a Cucumber Mint exfoliating Goats Milk Soap. I am in the process to add Pink Sugar, Violet Shea and Cupcake - for now.....way more to come in the upcoming days.

I really like having nice pictures of the products too and I have never in my life took a picture of soap - I am so used to photographing jars and bottles. I would really appreciate any input you got to share about my photos :-)

The ingredients are:

coconut oil, palm oil, castor oil, safflower oil, glycerin, water, goat milk, sorbitol, sorbitan oleate, fragrance oil, soybean protein, titanium dioxide

Castor oil adds moisturizing;

Safflower Oil is a highly moisturizing oil with an exceptionally high amount of Oleic acids, deeply soothing and one of the best choices for skin moisturizing;

Glycerin is a humectant, drawing moisture to your skin, allowing it to remain hydrated and soft. Beyond hydrating your skin, glycerin is also known to be a natural remedy for yeast and fungal infections, such as eczema and psoriasis. It is especially good for sensitive skin. Glycerin soap does not contain synthetic ingredients that will cause skin irritations. It keeps your skin looking AND feeling healthy and soft.

The low pH level of goat milk is close to our skin’s own pH. Goat milk also contains alpha-hydroxy acids, which are known for their restorative and rejuvenating qualities.

Well, you certainly have been busy! These soaps all look so good, I can just imagine what they must smell like. The 'scrubbing' soap for your husband sounds awesome!
