Today I am showcasing vanilla scented goat milk soap and lotion.
Many of the products that I talk about in my Product Monday series are part of my “base soap and lotion” group, products that I keep in stock at all times. Vanilla scented products were added to the base list in September 2009.
Natural vanilla fragrance fades in cold processed soap, so, a man-made vanilla fragrance is called to the rescue!
Guess what vanilla fragrance does as it ages in many types of products? Depending upon the percentage of vanilla in the product, the product color darkens from tan to chocolate brown. There are additives on the market that stop (or slow) the browning effects of vanilla fragrance. I choose to not use them. I honestly like the color.
Vanilla soap does produce a tan lather…but never fear, no staining of wash clothes occur!
Looks like a chocolate bar, don’t you think? Smells luscious. Clean. Not at all a sickening sweet vanilla scent. The same holds true for the lotion.
Lynnanne, a friend and blog reader, requested the vanilla soap. She loves the lotion as well. Her words are, “I think I could almost drink the lotion!” After Lynnanne offered a sniff of her lotioned arm to her aunt, her aunt became a fan as well.
Let me know if there is a product that you would like to see covered in the Product Monday series.
On a side note…I hope you had a wonderful weekend! We relaxed, visited with friends, and met new (friends of friends). It was great! I feel totally refreshed.
