Lump of Coal Soap
Have they been naughty or nice? Either way, a lump of coal is as fun to put into a stocking as it is to receive, especially if it is as useful as a bar of soap! It is jet black due to the activated carbon but will not stain a tub or shower, and rinses off as easily as any soap. It has a bit of a deep, earthy, smokey scent due to the essential oils used.
Ingredients: sodium tallowate, water, sodium sunflowerate, sodium cocoate, sodium olivate, sodium castorate, sodium beeswaxate, activated charcoal, Juniperus mexicana (Cedarwood) oil, Boswellia serrata (Frankincense) oil
In English, this means that we turn triple-washed tallow, sunflower oil, coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil, and beeswax into soap using sodium hydroxide. Activated charcoal, and essential oils of cedarwood and frankincense were added.
Pumpkins and Peanuts is proud to make soap that is not only natural, but also uses mostly local ingredients, which supports our farmers and our local economy. Our local ingredients can make beautiful, long lasting, gentle soap with a low carbon footprint! All our soaps are Made in Canada which means that less than 50% of the ingredients are imported. All of our soaps are palm free.
To keep your soap lasting longer, do not let it sit in water. It is best to use a soap dish that lets the soap drain well so that it drys between use.
