Sometimes we like to experiment and develop new recipes that don’t end up looking too great, they are still safe to use nonetheless so we hope you like them!
You will receive 100g ± 5% of multiple pieces of soap. We will only send you usable soaps and not soap shavings.
Current imperfect candidates: activated charcoal soap (fragrance-free), essential oil thin/small bars, castile – 100% olive oil – soap (fragrance-free).
- Lots of soda ash (washing soda) – it is a white veil that covers the soap which forms when unsaponified lye comes into contact with carbon dioxide in the air. This is a common thing on cold-process soaps, especially on soaps made with cavity moulds. We sometimes unmould our soaps a bit too fast or used too high of a water ratio so those soaps become covered in soda ash. Rest assured! It is completely harmless as we cure our soaps for many weeks so all lye is neutralised without a doubt.
- Cracks – this happens when use too much of a water discount.
- Thin bars, small bars – these are essential oil soaps without imperfection but just don’t weigh up to our normal standards (literally).
- Other imperfections
Hair, hands, face, body, teeth, laundry, house… or maybe start an imperfect soap collection and play Jenga?
To increase the soap’s lifespan, always place on a soap rest and ensure that it dries after use. Travel and storage solutions see Accessories.
These are cold-process soaps. From the day it was made, they have gone through at least 4+ weeks of curing to help produce gentle, lye-fee and long-lasting hard bar of soaps.
Vegan, cruelty-free and biodegradable as always, never any nasty stuff (SLS, Parabens, petrochemicals, synthetics, fragrance oils, palm oil).
Every batch and every soap is different, they will not look exactly like the photos.
