Green Mountain Soap
Green Mountain Soap
This soap is a tribute to our adopted home state of Vermont. Made with freshly fallen Vermont snow and locally sourced ingredients, the three layers of this cold processed soap resemble the landscape right outside our living room window.
The bottom layer is colored with organic chocolate powder - I told you I loved chocolate ;-). The next layer is colored with pure Vermont maple syrup and the top layer is colored with Vermont clover honey (the red clover is our state’s official flower) and bee pollen. I wanted the top to look like a honeycomb and so soda ash was allowed to develop (the white stuff you see on the sides) to resemble the snow-covered peaks of our local mountain ranges.
It's an incredibly mild, skin loving soap that's almost too pretty to use. It also makes a great gift!
In addition to tallow and lard, our Green Mountain Soap contains honey. While we're normally super happy to create a 100% vegan recipe for our vegan customers, this recipe unfortunately cannot be tweaked to be fully vegan friendly as the honey is a key ingredient in this soap.
Ingredients: Adeps Suillus (lard), Sodium Tallowate Adeps Bovis (beef tallow), Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Ricinus Communis Seed Oil, Vermont Maple Syrup, Vermont Red Clover Honey, Organic Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Powder
Every single one of our artisan soaps is handcrafted from scratch using our own recipes, made in small batches right here in the heart of Vermont's Green Mountains.
We use only natural, ethically sourced, skin-loving oils and butters, organic whenever possible. At North Country Soapworks we support fellow local businesses and try to source locally as much as we can. We only use pure essential oils, natural plant-based colorants, herbs and cosmetic grade clays. We never use premade soap bases, detergents, preservatives, sulfates, synthetic ingredients, mineral oils, micas, dioxides or any other synthetic garbage.
Each handmade bar may vary slightly in shape and color and vary in appearance from what you see on this page.
PLEASE NOTE: Handmade soap will last a long time if allowed to dry between uses. To extend your soap's life, use a draining soap dish and keep it away from direct streams of water.
*Lye is used to turn oils into soap - this process is called saponification. All soaps are made with lye (if they're not made with lye, they're not "soap" but technically a "detergent"). No lye remains in the final end product.
