Sweet Pine Soaps Order Review
I finally got around to purchasing Cold Pressed (CP) soap off Etsy. I ordered from Sweet Pine Soaps. TAT was very fast. I was searching Etsy for unscented organic soap and came across this nice store. I ordered 3 soaps to try homemade soaps before making a bigger order in case I didn't like them.
It's official! I will no longer buy store bought soaps, other than the Dove Sensitive Skin soap bars for my husband. The lather and fragrance is amazing! I got unscented, Triple Lemon and Orange Grapefruit Clove. These are all cold pressed. She also included a small slice of Primrose Orange soap.
The Triple Lemon has three different lemon essential oils in it. I cut the bar into thirds. I used it in the shower and it has fantastic lather. It smells fantastic. I also used part of the bar as hand soap.
First sniff of Orange Grapefruit Clove is very strong of citrus and spice.
I cut the unscented bar into thirds as well and used it also in the shower on my sensitive skin on my upper arms. It moisturized my skin greatly and has a very organic scent to it.
Unscented soap ingredients: saponified oils of olive, *coconut, *palm, (sustainably harvested) & *castor; filtered water.
*denotes organic ingredient
Note: 'saponified' is a term to indicate sodium hydroxide (lye) has been used to turn the oils into soap, none left in the finished bar.
For the triple lemon, the base ingredients are the same, organic turmeric to color it and scent it with lemon, lemongrass & litsea cubeba essential oils.
For the pink grapefruit, the base ingredients are the same, rose clay to color it and scent it with orange, pink grapefruit and clove essential oils.
