Anne-Marie Faiola's new Soap Crafting book came out recently and I had to have a copy!
Anne-Marie is "The Soap Queen" and I love watching her videos on You Tube and browsing her blog for wonderful eye candy and learning all that I can about how to improve my soap making skills.
My soap today came from a recipe in her book on making Yogurt Soaps. Anne-Marie says yogurt soap makes a wonderful facial soap because yogurt has naturally occurring lactic acid and is a gentle exfoliant. She adds that its high zinc content is said to help fight acne, and its natural antibacterial qualities and high fat content are great for skin as well.
I made the first three pound batch of yogurt soap and everything went well so I made two more three pound soaps for a total of 9 pounds of Coconut Lime Yogurt Soap. It smells delightful and I can't wait to try it!
I used different swirling techniques in each batch of soap and this is the first three pound loaf cut into bars.
The second three pound loaf of Coconut Lime Yogurt soap cut into bars.
The final cut, all nine pounds of soap are cut into bars and on the curing racks.
Even right out of the molds and freshly cut these soaps feel nice and smell wonderful!
Their full cure date is October 9, 2013 and they will be available in my online store
