Mountain Man Resurrection

Dark Winter

Back in the Summer you will remember that I made snowballs from a Mountain Man soap batch that did not quite go to plan. Recycling soap can be fun and a new Dark Winter soap was made 3 weeks ago.

A natural soap colourant was used, giving a wonderful dark black colour to the soap. This is obtained from activated charcoal sourced from coconut shells. This is a superior natural charcoal with much higher absorbancy compared to other activated charcoals.

The activated charcoal binds with environmental toxins and dirt that contribute to acne. It’s also good for spot treatments, rashes & bites. Added to aloe vera gel it makes a great poultice for problem skin.
