Mahalo! Pine and Bedford's first landscape soap is called: Sunset. It is a fun soap, reminiscent of the Hawaiian Sunsets that exist in my memory. It is made from a 6 oil blend that includes Macadamia Nut Oil, Avocado Oil, and Almond Oil, and is very mildly fragranced with a suntan lotion scent. It contains Carrot Powder and Rhassoul (a Magnesium-rich) Clay in the sand portion on the bottom, as well as Walnut Husks for mild exfoliation.
Caution: This product contains nut oils that can cause an allergic response. If you have nut allergies issues -- our Everyday Lather Collection is a better (nut-free*) option.
Spoiler Alert: (1) The tiny little sailboat bobbing on the horizon will magically disappear after the first use as it is added to the surface of the soap. (2) The small spherical sun spangles (on the top) made of clear glycerin soap are decorative and may also erode and fall off during use.
I was inspired by the many soap artists today who make the most beautiful soapy landscapes that I felt compelled to give it a try. I had so much fun, I think I am hooked. More to come.
*Did you know? Coconut is not a botanical nut; it is classified as a fruit, even though the Food and Drug Administration recognizes coconut as a tree nut. While allergic reactions to coconut have been documented, most people who are allergic to tree nuts can safely eat/use products with coconut oil.
