Kismet is another redesign of a big favourite of our customers - I decided to kick it up a notch though, from last time, so, this time round, this Pure Silk soap contains our ever loving blend of Sweet Almond & Golden Olive oil along with lashings of creamy Cocoa Butter .. then we added our new Triple Milks formula which is lots of Buttermilk, Goatsmilk & Coconut Milk ... natural sources of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and a natural source of AHA's plus all those milk fats are sooooooooo good for your skin.
Then I added White Kaolin Clay to give the soap more slip and glide plus it helps remove dirt and excess oils, Colloidal Oatmeal which gives a silky feel and helps to condition and soften your skin. It's also said to be excellent for dry, itchy, sensitive skin. I added, of course, our pure wild tussah silk for extra luxury and silkiness.. you can't have a Pure Silk soap without actual real silk in it.
The fragrance is a stunning blend of Patchouli, Orange, Lemongrass, Lavendin, Pine, Gardenia, Sandalwood & Musk and oh boy, does it smell SO GOOD!! It's a VERY popular fragrance for us and I suspect that this soap will be running off the shelves once cured!
The technique that I used here is one I laughingly call "The Celine Swirl"... I'm sure there's another name for it and someone else has done it before (there's very little new under the sun after all) but I don't know what it's called so I just called it The Celine Swirl. Funny thing now is other soapers are trying it out and calling it that - hilarious!
Here is the Making Of video and it shows you just how to do The Celine Swirl (I laugh everytime I write that you know!):
Here is the Cutting video so you can see just how the swirls worked out:
