Ultra Violet - New Soap & New Style

I've had this Ultra Violet fragrance for a while and it was sort of in the back of my mind that I wanted to do a really funky, mega purple soap.  I thought it'd look really good against a really white soap, it'd help to accentuate the swirls and colours.  Of course, Ultra Violet couldn't be any other colour than purple really could it? Well, yes violet but that's purple!

Ultra Violet is made using our new Triple Milk formula of Buttermilk, Goatsmilk & Coconut Milk (regular readers will know how much I love to use milks in my soaps and why use one when you can use three?!) along with Aloe Vera, White Clay, Colloidal Oatmeal & my absolute favourite Wild Silk.

The fragrance is described as a rich and enticing, exotic floral accord where cool notes of summer orange and tingling lemon made slightly cooler by and hint of fresh ozone and dewy summer fruits. The heart of this fragrance is vibrant and floral with warm notes of lily, ginger and nutmeg, alongside geranium blooms and sweet summer rose. The base continues in this rich and complex theme with warming notes of vetivert, musks, amber and patchouli.  It smells divine and is very unisex, both my hubs and Titch love it! My hubs even said "it smells purple" LOL.  It's just really really lovely and I'm so happy how well it worked out.

This soap was made with what I'm laughingly calling The Celine Swirl.. as I explained in another post, I just thought it was really funny to call it this but I'm quite sure that it actually has another name or something, I can't imagine I just invented it by myself?!

Check out our Making Of video to check out how we made this and The Celine Swirl in action:

And here is our Cutting video which shows you the reveal of how the soap swirl worked out:

Here are the still photos for the soap, I really adore it! Photos are courtesy of Titch Holland of Taken By Titch (make sure to check out her Facebook page):

I really hope you like the videos and photos of this fantastic soap ... it really is a stunner.  Check out the website for details of this soap and all our other products.



  1. Your swirls are always jaw dropping gorgeous. I can only aspire to be as great of a soapmaker as you! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Beautiful soap with your new camera! You gals are wonderful entertainment in the morning...Thanks!

  3. Gorgeous, Celine! Such a nice purple, and the scent sounds amazing. The "Celine Swirl" is officially a thing, I think - I hear soapers refer to it often and the first time I heard it, I knew it was named for you! I want to try the Celine Swirl soon myself - the results are stunning!

  4. I agree with Head 2 Toe, your swirls are absolutely amazing...and I'm so digging the glitter!

  5. Sooooo beautyful!!! Love your soaps.

  6. WoW ! Soooo purple! Lov it ;)

  7. Oh Celine thank you, the vídeos are so good, as your personal swirl. I love that purple soaps.

  8. Absolutely amazing! I have watched your videos on youtube before finding you on the new Soapy Pinsters boards! Very inspirational stuff :) I notice that you added your milk mixture to your oils before adding the lye water. Do you need to leave out some of the water in your lye mixture to accommodate the liquid milks added? When I make my milk soaps, I usually end up using milk in place of the water when creating the lye water. It works ok but I have to be so careful to make sure the milks don't discolor. I would like to try your technique but I was curious if I should leave out some of the water in my lye mixture? Thanks for your creativity and your lilting Irish humor!

  9. Woohoo!!! Another stunner Celine - truly gorgeous <3

  10. Beautiful! I can't believe you make CP soap WITHOUT gloves!!!
