Fun with Beer Soap!

Here in Colorado, one of the most vital and innovative industries is the Craft Beer industry.  We at Flatirons Soap Works love to make beer soap because it is sooooo good for the skin and the process is challenging plus great fun.  Flatirons Soap Works has been selected to be one of the few vendors at May’s Bacon and Beer Classic in Denver.  We have teamed with Breckenridge Brewery to create a signature soap for the Classic.  We have combined Breckenridge’s Vanilla Porter with the bacon lard from the signature bacon and created a wondrously luxuriant bar of soap!  We also created a vegan version of this soap for those who don’t like bacon.  Although I can’t imagine who that would be!

To avoid confusion, we added a cute little pig to the top of the bar made with lard.

Beer Soap and More Beer Soap

new beer soap 1

Flatirons Soap Works makes the best beer soap.  This week we made more.

Using beer instead of water to make soap, beer will offer a light scent with all natural ingredients.  The beer in beer soap has some added health benefits. Beer soap has ingredients that moisturize, fight acne, repairs hair.  Beer is made up of hops, barley, malt and whatever herbs, fruits, spices and grains the brewer choose to include.  Hops contain polyphenols which are thought to account for its anti-bacterial and preservative effects. Hops also contain skin -softening amino acids and are known for their relaxing properties.  Beer soap has a much better lather than soaps made with water.

The taste of beer translates to a much lighter scent in the soap, so FSW adds a few fragrance oils or essential oils into the soap mix. For instance, if a chocolate stout is used for soap making, a touch of vanilla and or cocoa powder is added as a compliment to the chocolate undertones.

Why Use a Pre-Shave Oil?

Men's Shaving Set

FSW has developed a men’s kit for those men who do not have beards.  Everyone is aware of after shave but how many have heard of pre-shave oil?  FSW developed a super moisturizing pre-shave oil with jojoba oil, castor oil and vitamin E oil.

Using a pre-shave oil moisturizes the skin, softens whiskers, protects sensitive skin and best of all reduces razor burn.

Put a few drops of oil in your hand, gently rub hands together for a few seconds then massage oil into beard bristles for about 30 seconds.  Then let the oil work for another 30 seconds  before applying shaving lather.  Use this time to wash the oil from your hands.

What is Bubble Frosting?

Flatirons Soap Works makes bath bomb cupcakes because they are so easy to customize and to personalize.  Previously, we frosted our cupcake with whipped soap.  This past fall we found bubble frosting.  “What is bubble frosting?” you ask.  It is solid bubble bath.  When using your new FSW cupcake, remove decorations, lift bubble frosting from the cupcake and break frosting into a few pieces.  Hold these pieces under the faucet while filling the tub.  When the tub is full, drop in your cupcake bath bomb.  You will have bubbles AND a great smelling bath bomb and beautifully hued water.  We at FSW hope you enjoy your new and improved bath bomb cupcakes!
