One way I like to reward myself is getting a new bar of soap. I know that sounds odd but it's no mystery that I love handmade soap, I made the switch to using handmade soaps only back in 2009. I have my list of local soapers that I support but that doesn't mean I can't add to it. While I know there are great soapers all over, I try to do what I can to support my fellow New Yorkers.
Today I want to share my latest soap obsession, Park Soap from Brooklyn. I purchased a 6 oz bar of Lavender Vanilla soap to start. Its ingredients include water, olive oil, *coconut oil, *sustainable palm oil, sodium hydroxide, *avocado oil, *sweet almond oil, *castor oil, *ground lavender flowers, *lavender essential oil, vanilla oleoresin (*certified organic)
I learned about this shop after seeing a rave review about them on Instagram. I am all about cold process soaps and you can't go wrong with 6 generous ounces! Have I mentioned they're vegan too? (except for their Oat & Honey soap). From their website....
I strive to use the highest quality, organic and sustainable oils and botanicals available. I do not use any synthetic fragrances, dyes, sodium laureth sulfates or parabens.
