Sorry it has been so long since my last blog post. The holidays are soooo hectic. There are some fun new items at SV.Soaps along with fun stocking stuffers and gift sets.

Always popular Apple Jack and Peel soap is back for the holiday season...
This smells just like the yummiest apple you have ever had the privilege of eating and then some. It has hot and spicy top notes of cinnamon and cloves rounding down to the mellow scent of red apples. Men love this one! It is especially popular during the fall and winter months when all anyone wants to do is cuddle up in front of the fire!

Blackberry Spice:
This juicy, ripe concoction smells absolutely incredible. The top notes are a juicy plum and blackberry mix accented with cinnamon & clove. The heart is a bouquet of blue violets sprinkled with love. The dry is a sugar coated vanilla cherry cordial. It's just one amazingly sweet, delicious blend that you won't want to miss out on.

Fun Summer Fruit Facial Recipes

Here are some fun summer fruit facials that you can make at home with under 5 ingredients. They will leave your skin looking smooth and radiant.


Fresh Strawberry Facial:

Strawberries make an excellent skin softening facial mask. Strawberries contain salicylic acid, which rids the skin of dead cells, allowing it to absorb moisture more efficiently, as well as help heal blemishes.



Ingredients:
1/2 cup fresh strawberries
1 tablespoon milk or plain yogurt
1 tablespoon cornstarch

Blend all the ingredients in the food processor to make a smooth paste. Spread mask over your face and neck and let sit for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat skin dry. You can refrigerate any leftover mask. Will last up to a week.


Papaya Facial:

The papaya's natural fruit acids and enzymes will remove dead skin cells which will leave your skin looking younger and smoother. Papaya contains a natural enzyme called papain. The greener the papaya the higher the enzyme content.

Caution: Do not leave mask on your face for more than 5 minutes and rinse well because if left on to long it can become drying.

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons mashed papaya
1 teaspoon aloe vera gel

Mix ingredients together and apply to face and neck. Let sit for 5 minutes and rinse with cool water and moisturize well.

The Benefits of Soy Candles



We have just added soy candles to our product line. I really like the way they turned out. I think customers are going to go crazy for them.


Our candles are made from 100% soy. They come in an adorable apothacary jar.

There are many benefits to burning soy candles as opposed to parafin based candles. Soy candles are made from natural oils from soybean plants so they burn cleaner and emit significantly less soot. That means more enjoyment and healthier air quality for you and your family.
One major distinction between waxes is where they were derived (what they are made of). Traditionally, candle waxes have mostly been paraffin based. Soy based waxes have grown in popularity in recent years due to their improvements in quality, as compared to earlier soy waxes. Many customers also prefer using a natural product which is produced by American farmers.

The Benefits of Soy candles:


  • Clean burning

  • Last Longer

  • Naturally fragrant

  • Made in America

  • Earth Friendly

  • Renewable Resource

    Approxiametly 3.5 oz

The difference between Commercial Soap and Handmade Soap

Commercial soap is usually manufactured using synthetic detergents and chemicals that can strip away the skin's protective oils. One of the most beneficial by-products of the soap making process is the production of glycerin, a humectant that draws moisture to the skin. Large amounts of glycerin is removed in the commercial production process and used to make other beauty products. Only a small quantity of glycerin remains in commercially produced soaps. Commercially produced soaps are made with artificial ingredients, chemicals and harsh detergents.

Handmade soap however, completely incorporates and retains all of this natural glycerin, a major benefit in handmade soap. Glycerin attracts moisture to your skin and each bar of handmade soap you use is thereby providing your skin with more moisturizing properties than commercial soap. Also, handmade soaps which are blended with nature's own pure vegetable oils and butters, pure essential oils and organic botanicals. These ingredients are a healthier alternative for cleansing your precious skin. No artificial ingredients or chemicals are included in 100% natural, handmade soap.

New Products:

Winter Grapefruit Handmade Vegan Soap:

Juniper and Grapefruit essential oils have long been used in spa detox programs. Enjoy this crisply innovative blend of Fresh Grapefruit, Juniper, and Italian Lemon. It smells just like fresh grapefruit whirled up in a blender with a spring of pine needle and a handful of red currents. Winter Grapefruit is fresh, delighting to the senses.

This bar has layers of creamy yellow and mauve layers. The mauve layers contain pink jojoba beads for exfoliation. The top is sprinkled with mauve chunks of soap and pink jojoba beads.



Dead Sea Salt Scrub:

My salt scrubs contain a wonderfully moisturizing blend of dead sea salt and oils that will leave your skin healthy and soft!!

Rubbing your skin with a good salt scrub, full of minerals essential for a healthy body, allows the texture of the scrub paste to exfoliate and polish the skin, leaving it clean and refreshed.


How Does Salt Scrub Benefit Your Skin?

Exfoliates dead skin cells - The salt rubs away the layer of dead skin cells to reveal a younger skin layer.

Cleans your pores- As the salt gently abrades your skin, it picks up oils and dirt from your pores.
Stimulates blood circulation- The gentle abrasion stimulates blood flow to the area.
Removes toxins- Those toxins released through your skin are removed when you wash off the salt.

Strengthens and firms skin tissues-Keeping your skin looking younger and feeling healthier

Many great scents to choose from....

Woo Hoo It's Finally Done

I have finally completed my new site. I will have to tweek a few things here and there but so far I love the way the site turned out. The design is vibrant and colorful. The site is easy to navigate and customers have many payment options. I hope that everyone likes it. I would love to hear your feedback. I am also starting a monthly newsletter. Customers will be updated on new products, upcoming specials, and receive monthly coupons. If you would like to sign up for the newsletter you can email me at silvia@svsoaps.com.

New Products this Month....

Black Licorice Handmade Vegan Soap
This sweet smelling essential oil smells just like black licorice. This is a wonderful soap for both Men and Women. Not only is this soap ideal for black licorice lovers, scientific research has shown that the scent of black licorice can increase arousal in men and women. Even those who aren't crazy about black licorice flavor find these sensuous suds irresistible. ( I used it in the shower this morning and I loved it. The smell is so refreshing and I love the exfoliation that the apricot meal and ground fennel seeds add).


Brown Sugar Scrubs
My sugar scrubs contain a wonderfully moisturizing blend of sugars and oils that will leave your skin healthy and soft!! Using a sugar scrub is good for keeping skin healthy and soft. It is important to exfoliate skin, especially in dry and cold weather when the body easily loses moisture. ( I love this sugar scrub. It leaves your skin super soft)



To Scrub or Not to Scrub? I personally say Scrub.....

How Does Sugar Scrub Work?
The rough texture of the sugar peels away the dry and dead skin cells on the surface layer of the skin, revealing the smooth and healthy skin underneath. The moisturizing ingredients in most sugar scrubs is an added benefit that helps retain moisture, keeping skin soft and hydrated. This process of exfoliating keeps skin healthy and supple.


Stay tuned for new product updates and blog giveaway.....

New Online Store

Just let me start by saying that I love Etsy!!! They have been good to me the last few years. I will not be leaving Etsy but I am trying to expand so I have started my own online store for my soaps and other goodies. I am so excited about my new store. If you would like to check it out you can go to http://www.svsoaps.com/ But please remember it is still a work in progress. My site should be up and running by the end of the month.

I will be adding so many new goodies in the upcoming months such as Whipped Body Butters, Cream Soaps, Soy Candles, Mens Products, Sugar and Salt Scrubs. Coming in February will be sugar and salt scrubs...

I have also added some new soaps in the last two weeks. New to my shop are...


Almond: A very real smelling almond - smooth and crisp. This scent is wonderful for both men and women.

Malachite: This scent is complex, layered, and inviting. This is a floral scent with key notes of Water Hyacinth, Imperial Peony, and Sandalwood.



Red Apple: This scent is actually a blend of a few varieties of Red Apple scents, along with some notes of Green Apple to temper the sweetness. The Green Apple notes add some wonderful depth and tartness to the scent.


Stay tuned for all the new and exciting upcoming products.....
