So in a “what’s in my shower this week” report – I got out one of the last remaining bars of this batch of oatmeal/goat’s milk soap. After unmolding, it continued to turn an even deeper brown due to the vanilla-containing fragrance oil. The oatmeal gives a wonderful light scrub. Much gentler than other natural exfoliants. This week, I’m getting back into the soap kitchen with two “food-inspired” batches – one cold process and the other melt and pour. Stay tuned!
Soaps that contain goat’s milk and oatmeal are good for your skin. The goat’s milk contains extra fat, vitamins, alpha-hydroxy acids and minerals; the oatmeal is a great natural exfoliant. This recipe uses them both, but uses them in two layers, along with a vanilla-containing fragrance oil to make a soap that’s visually cool, and wonderful in the shower.
