Cashmere is a soap I've had in the range since the beginning, the second I smelt the fragrance I knew I had to have it and I love it as much now as I did then. I got the idea for the colours from an image on Google images which was of a cashmere scarf and it looked so luxurious, so rich, so utterly lovely and almost decadent that I knew I had my colours decided!
The soap is one of our Pure Silk cold process soap range and is made with Sweet Almond & Olive Oils with lashings creamy Cocoa Butter. I've also added Aloe Vera, and what I'm calling our new triple milk formula - Buttermilk, Goatsmilk & Coconut Milk along with White Kaolin Clay & Colloidal Oatmeal.
The benefits of milk for the skin has been known for centuries, they're a natural source of AHA's and protein along with natural fats that help to condition your skin to the highest degree. Aloe Vera has also been used for centuries as a rich source of vitamins and antioxidants, amongst other things, as have clays and oatmeal. Basically I take the best that nature provides and combine them in such a way that you have a luxurious, stunning, skin loving, beautifully perfumed piece of art that is not only a beauty to look at but a beauty to use.
Cashmere is fragranced with a blend of essences of Moroccan jasmine, lily of the valley and bergamot with warm undertones of sandalwood, amber and musk. It is one of my favourites, warm and sexy and simply divine.
