I had almost forgotten about the two loaves of unscented goat's milk soap that I had promised to my sister for a friend of hers. It's a good thing I wrote it down on the calendar.
It's six weeks were up and it was time to give it a test. It passed. It's not my idea of a fun soap but for someone with severe sensitivities I suppose it's better than nothing. I got a lot of lather from them. It must be all that sugar in the milk.
The first one I made I called Plain Ole' Goat. It has nothing fancy in it. No butters, no clay or unusual exotic oils. If you can use it to make a cake or a pasta dish, I thought it would be safe.
The second one is my usual recipe of cocoa and shea butter with a little kaolin clay as a colorant and some fancy oils to see if she could tolerate something that was a bit more conditioning. Of course I like this one better but without any fragrance or color it's still just another big yawn.
No matter. In about three weeks I'll have plenty of fun stuff to test and wrap. Eleven loaves to be exact. Eleven loaves I had plenty of fun with. I can't wait to share them.
