Making his debut - the story of a new soap

More about me later but for now read on...

Once upon a time I made a soap called Venus
She looks like this this


She quickly became one of the most popular of Old Pit soaps being made with sweet almond and extra virgin olive oil, organic oatmeal, fragranced with nutmeg and Orange with a touch of Ylang Ylang.

Shortly after she made her debut she was joined by her sister Vegan Venus
Venus and Vegan Venus
A soap made with coconut oil, green tea infusion, green clay and ground almonds scented with patchouli and Ylang Ylang and as the name suggests suitable for vegans. She quickly became as popular as her sister and started appearing in many bathrooms.
Then I got a message from a friend, Could I possibly make Vegan Venus in a more, shall we say - bar shaped -bar? Her friend who is a vegan man really liked the soap could I oblige?

No sooner said than done and I set to work making the recipe into oval bars and put them away to cure. Four weeks hence there's a new bar in town and here he is next to his sister

Vegan Venus and her brother
