With its warm spicy aroma and generous frothy lather, our spiced apple soap has already become a Soap Folk favourite.
Rippling through this soap is our star ingredient - organic pressed apple juice. Full of natural sugars, all that lovely juice helps make our bubbliest bar yet. Paired with lather boosting coconut oil and castor oil, this soap is truly versatile.
If you like to use soap in a bid to cut down on the plastic bottles in the bathroom, it might seem a bit counter-intuitive to have soaps for every purpose. We wanted to create a really good all rounder. Try it as body wash, shaving soap or even as a shampoo bar. This is a great choice if you are looking for just one soap to pop into your travel bag or gym kit.
We’ve used more of the bubble boosting oils of castor and coconut - not too much though, lots of coconut oil in soap can leave the skin feeling squeaky clean and a little dry, so this soap contains a careful balance of conditioning oils and butters, so you can enjoy a generous lather and soft skin.
Soap Folk is lucky enough to be based in Stroud where, every Saturday, it hosts one of the best farmers markets in the UK. On a cold winter’s day, there is often a queue for a hot spiced apple drink. More than a little inspiration has been taken for this soap. The spice oils of clove and cinnamon lend this soap a warm, earthy character. As base notes, they have a great sticking power in cold process soap.
We use the traditional cold process technique to make our soaps. It’s a very low energy method, which produces a soap rich in natural glycerine. We think our Spiced Apple soap bar is the perfect showcase for the cold process technique. Naturally coloured from the spiced apple, each soap is unique. Lined up on the curing shelves, they look like slices of gingerbread. They really are so rewarding to make and we hope you find them just as enjoyable to use.
