I am pleased to report that we have a new facial bar to add to our lineup of healthy, natural skincare products. Six weeks ago, we tried our new recipe for a shea butter-based facial bar. After all the mishaps with creating a new shave bar, which I have yet to succeed at, I was a bit apprehensive about creating a new facial bar. Fortunately, for my self-confidence sake, the facial bar was successful.
I am tickled to introduce to you our unscented, gentle, moisture-rich, shea butter facial bar. This bar is ideal for anyone with sensitive skin, dry skin, or combination dry/oily skin. I have been using this bar for almost two weeks, and I am very pleased with the results. The soap itself has a lovely, rich lather and leaves my face feeling soft, moisturized, and non-greasy. I believe it will be a popular choice with those who react to products, are sensitive to scent, or suffer from various skin issues.
There was a bit of back and forth between myself and The Bibbed Wonder over what we should name our new facial bar. Of course, The Bibbed Wonder being The Bibbed Wonder thought the new bar should be called Butter Face because it makes one's face as soft and smooth as butter, no. Because as a teenager, the term "Butter Face" came into being to describe someone who looked good on all physical points with the exception of one's face. For example, "She's a butter face. Everything looks good but her face." Insert hard eye-roll. I often feel as though I live with an oversized, bald adolescent boy. The conversation was finally put to bed with an exasperated, "Dammit, Eric! We will not be using the term Butter Face in any way, shape, or form!" To which he retorted, " I hate it when I'm funny, and you don't appreciate it. I give you gold, and you throw it away." Sigh. If wisecracks were gold, I would be as rich as Oprah.
We will be introducing our Shea Butter Facial Bar at The Ligonier Country Market this weekend. I only made 25 bars to see how it will be received. If you are as pleased with it as I am, there will be more to come on a year-round basis. As always, dear reader, stay safe, be smart, Happy July 4th, and keep washing your hands.
