coming from the 5% Sea Buckthorn berry oil. We freeze our Goat's milk and then use the lye to defrost it. This method prevents the
cream from curdling, was we to otherwise let it defrost the day before. If the milk cream curdles, the pH becomes more acidic3 which
isn't good for your sensitive skin.
From left to right, we measure out the fine organic Oatmeal and Lavender essential oils. Next, once the soap

Oatmeal clumping. The essential oils go in during the trace stage. The next day, we take apart the mould to reveal
a smooth block of gorgeous soap. The cutter cuts into logs before they're cut into bars.
