Alternative Liquid Soaps

It’s been a long time since I last made a challenge soap but when I saw that Amy is organizing a challenge concerning natural colorants, I immediately thought that this would be interesting to participate. The theme was something I love: alternative liquids. So bye-bye water and think of something different to make your soap….

The 3rd Week Challenge- Swirls Tops

I was really excited about this challenge, as it gave me the opportunity to try something I have never tried before. Looking at all those beautifully made soaps by Emily was an inspiration for me. My first soap is a Russian Cambrian Clay soap which contains coconut oil, palm oil, olive oil, sesame oil, avocado…

Green & white clay soap

This is one of my favourite soaps as it contains besides vegetable oils ( coconut oil, palm oil, olive oil, grapeseeds oil, safflower oil) green and white clay.

Graduate Colours Soaps

I believe this is my favourite challenge…because of its simplicity. I found the blue soap made by Amy so lovely that I couldn’t wait trying my own gradure colours soap. As for the previous technique I had to use colorants, this time I was content to use only natural ingredients. My first experience: red clay…

Faux funnel swirl

As I have never tried this technique before, I was really excited about it. I have watched some videos about this and according to me, the more colours you use, the nicer the result. Initially I was thinking about using carrotjuice with red clay and cacao but these would have accelerated the trace. So I…
