This is the rustic rendition of the Turmeric Tiger soap. It is made using the hot-process method where soap batter is cooked on low heat (using a double boiler or a slow cooker) for more than an hour.
Hot-process soap is softer than cold-process soaps and they have a special ‘rough around the edges’ look to them. They are nonetheless all-purpose and as effective!
Every bar of Rustic Turmeric soap weighs 110g ± 5%.
✼ Pure essential oils: frankincense & lime
✼ Organic Turmeric: rejuvenating, gives a deep orange-brown colour to soap
✼ Oils and Butters – a gentle and mild formula
- olive oil: makes mild and nourishing soap
- coconut oil: makes cleansing and lathering soap with big fluffy bubbles
- shea butter: makes conditioning and long-lasting soap
✼ Sodium Hydroxide: also known as lye, it turns all the oils into soap
✼ Water: helps to dissolve lye to make a solution usable in soap making
Hair, hands, face, body, teeth, laundry, house… you can also grate it, cut it, smell it, just don’t eat it!
To increase the soap’s lifespan, always place on a soap rest and ensure that it dries after use.
This is a hot-process soap. From the day it was made, it has gone through at least 3+ weeks of curing/drying to help produce a gentle and long-lasting hard bar of soap.

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. There may be some white patches on the soap called soda ash (a.k.a washing soda). It is natural and harmless – a normal part of handmade cold-process soap!
Take care: If you have sensitivities, do a patch test before use.
