Black and Tan Soap
This soap is named not only for it’s two distinct colors but also for it’s ingredients. Beer lovers may get the reference to a popular Irish beer cocktail known as the Black and Tan. The tan color is a result of the combination of stout beer, cocoa and coffee butters. By adding activated charcoal* to a portion of the soap batter, a deep dark black color is created. Activated charcoal has long been used for skin irritations or breakouts, such as acne, because it appears to have the ability to draw out excess oils and impurities. Historically, beer, and more specifically hops, has been shown to have antibacterial properties, and may also have calming and soothing benefits for the skin. The addition of coffee butter may help restore moisture. We strive to create all natural soaps that are healthful and we realize some essential oils impart natural scents. We think such aromas may have mental health benefits too. For this soap we add a smoky blend of cedar wood and fir needle essential oils which impart an invigorating aroma.

*Activated charcoal due to its dark nature may stain your washcloth, but a good wash in hot water should remove the stain.
