Brown Sugar Honey Fig Shea Butter Goats Milk Soap is back

This soap is seasonal  since I usually only get two yearly harvests from my fig tree.  The bars weigh approximately 5 oz. each and are 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" x 1" thick.

These were made with goatsmilk from my own goats, figs from my own fig tree (pesticide free), honey, brown sugar and a blend of proprietary oils including coconut and shea butter.

Between the goats milk, brown sugar, honey and figs these soaps are a dark brown.  These also have a pleasant warm brown sugar scent.  I have added a small amount scent oil to this batch to boost that wonderful natural fig and brown sugar scent.

The honey acts as a natural disinfectant and antifungal, a humectant to hold in moisture and also  boosts the lather, the brown sugar also boosts the lather and also adds a nice warm scent along with the figs. The honey, figs, shea butter, and goats milk are all great for your skin. These lather up nicely also and smell wonderful!

Figs are supposed to contain enzymes called (ficin) which is antioxidant-rich and revitalizes the skin by fighting the damaging effects of the sun and environment.
