So, I'm changing the shape and orientation of my soap.
Ahhhhh! Don't panic.
The bars will still be 5 ounces(or more). There will still be over 1 ounce of pure goats milk from our farm. Scents and colors will be consistent with what you know and love.
You may be asking why?
Technically speaking, I am now using a slab mold instead of a loaf mold. A loaf mold is like what you would bake bread in. A slab mold is closer to a 9 by 13 pan: think brownies(you're welcome).
The slab mold that I have transferred to is easier to give you a better product. My husband made me a divider that allows me to have the soap poured and cut in one feel swoop. Cutting soap without leaving wire or knife cutting marks was always difficult with my goats milk soap.
It also allows me to keep the temperature cool enough for a beautiful, consistent soap. Heat is the enemy with soaps that contain milks or fruit purees, and this mold allows for a more steady result.
I will also be offering smaller, "guest room" sized bars and am able to do so with this new mold. I'm thinking approximately 2 1/2 ounce bars- perfect for your half bath or a guest room.
All the soaps will be perfect hand size. I have very large hands for a woman and it was, ahem, mentioned to me that my loaf mold soaps were a bit large for "normal" sized hands(tee hee). All joking aside, I appreciate the customer help and reminder that we all come in different shapes and sizes and our soap can, too!
So why am I telling you this?
As a heads up.
If you get soaps that look a bit different, one from another, it's not a mistake or a quality control issue. It's the changeover that I'm making.
Let me know what you think?
