Handmade, Heartfelt Soap
By Marci Robin, Senior Online Editor |
If you ask the folks at SunFeather what they think about their own natural soap, they'll proudly tell you that it's "the creamiest, most moisturizing soap on the planet." And at first, I thought I'd just have to take their word for it.
See, when I received their handcrafted Goats Milk Soap, it was so prettily, preciously packaged in boho-pattern fabric that I almost couldn't bear to unwrap it. I displayed it on my shelf for about a day until I finally gave in and decided to see if SunFeather's not-so-humble opinion is an accurate one.
I delicately disrobed the soap like a tiny present, and found a smooth, simple brick of cleansing yumminess. One washing later, it was confirmed: the combination of fresh goat milk and olive, palm and coconut oils does, indeed, make this soap outrageously emollient and very gentle on sensitive skin. The subtly sweet scent adds to how enjoyable it is to use.
Luckily, SunFeather soaps are available in bulk, so I can buy a big batch and split them up-half for the shower, and half for the shelf!
