Goat Milk Soapy Sachet as a Facial Scrub

Creating new products is part of the fun of working with soaps. Soap marketing and packaging is sooooo creative, the possibilities are as exciting as they are endless.

That's why we created our Soapy Sachet.
  • Each organza bag contains shredded soap that you leave in the bag.
  • Wet the bag then use it as a cloth for cleansing your skin.
  • It's perfect for facial scrubs (gently, please).

Currently we have our Goat Milk Olive Oil Soap shreds available. We wanted to start with our softest, most gentle soaps so you could see how it works for you.

When you're through washing your face, form the wet sachet the way you want to use it next time because it dries in the shape you leave it. I like the soft rounded shape but you can form any shape. That's another part of the fun!

The red sachet holds more than 4 ounces of shredded soap. It sells for $5.00 and will last longer than the average soap bar.

Happy sudz, Pat

Newest Soap Batch Aging Nicely

The newest soap batch is aging nicely. This morning they were firm enough to bevel the edges. Touching our new soaps is a pleasant experience. They're creamy and make my hands feel soft after working with soaps. Maybe that's why I handle them so much.

Anyway, they're back on the drying racks now. Just waiting ... and waiting ... waiting until they're just right. Then, as soon as they're dry enough, I'll take them to the packaging and labeling room where each bar is polished, shrink wrapped and labeled.

But this is a new batch so they’ll need naming. That’s a whole new process that I’ll talk about next time. I've blended three essentials oils: lavender, rosemary, and bergamot. In addition to the gentleness of goat milk, we'll have the effectiveness of these essential oils.

More later as this batch makes its way through the process.
