Yesterday I received my order of activated charcoal, so I decided to make a Black Tea Soap. I love this fragrance because it’s a dry tea scent that is slightly sweet and has just a touch of milk.
The swirls are from the added activated charcoal, rhassoul clay, and titanium dioxide. I really like using rhassoul clay (aka moroccan lava clay) because it adds a nice slip to the lather and is supposed to be great for the skin’s elasticity and texture. The activated charcoal I used is from bamboo and I love the deep rich black it adds to the soap.
I will be unmolding and cutting the soap in the next few days. Check back for photos of the cut bars :D
