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 can Activated Charcoal do for ME??


As you know, Flatirons Soap Works has products containing activated Charcoal and you should know what these products can do for you!

Activated charcoal is carbon soot that’s been treated to give it a sponge-like structure, with lots of holes. If you enlarge an image of activated charcoal, you will see it’s very jagged and irregular, giving it a larger surface area  This enlarged surface area is particularly handy for soaking up substances.

In skin care, there isn’t anything on your skin that you want to stay on there when you’re ready to wash your face (except maybe good bacteria, but they multiply quickly), so it’s OK to use it regularly.   A normal cleanser removes surface dirt and oil through the use of surfactants like synthetic detergents, syndets (synthetic products) or soaps .  But these cleansers don’t really get into pores.  A side note here – yes, almost all commercial soaps and cleansers are synthetic detergents (imagine washing your face with Tide!)

Activated Charcoal Cleansers and masks are able to draw dirt and oil from the pores. Thus keeping the skin clear and healthy.
