New Year....New Ideas!!!!!

We have been working hard in the Soapy Lab the past few weeks to get all of our soap restocked from our busy Holiday Season.

As we restock bestsellers like; Mountain Man, Stormy Ocean Seas, Sparkling Sea Glass, and Lavender Goat's Milk. We also have some big ideas for a few new fragrances and styles to work on.

We played with some wonderful new RUBY RED Glitter (a freebie from one of our suppliers).  We used a basic white soap with a simple cocoa line (chalk line) for the design with a beautifully bright Gardenia fragrance.

We ordered in 12 new Soap and Bath & Body fragrances to play with this year.  Some of my favorites right out of the bottle are:

  • Oatmeal Milk & Honey:  I have been meaning to order this one for I wish I hadn't waited so long.  It's absolutely incredible.
  • Bamboo & Lotus:  This one will replace our cucumber & aloe.  It's fresh and clean; with just a hint of brightness that makes it oh so good.
  • Cashmere & Silk:  This fragrance is a bit tricky to explain; it's soft, sensual, with just a touch of musk. 
  • DeLish: I am in LOVE with this fragrance.  I am not going to give it away...but I promise it will be worth the wait!

We also have some new colorants to play with as well as a few new design techniques we would like to try this year.  I am dying to try a peacock swirl, but that one will have to wait until I can get my new mold that I want.  (an 18 bar flat mold with dividers).  For now I do have a few ideas up my sleeve for my standard loaf mods.

More Stripes are in our plans this year as well as playing more with squirt bottles, spoon swirls, and cocoa powder chalk lines.  I would also love to try out a Mica Glycerin swirl this year as well.

We also have a few other new things we can't wait to play with.  We will be experimenting with liquid and cream soaps as well as bringing our newly updated lotion back as well as a few Facial items we can't wait to share with you.

And that is just the beginning...we have many wonderful new Candle Fragrances that are currently in testing as well as a brand new Line of candles coming this year!
