In 2018, we had a surplus of cucumbers from our backyard garden that we lovingly call Alexander Farm and Orchard. We grow okra, tomatoes, collard greens, and of course cucumber. We have a few citrus trees and we plant enough to sustain our family, share with our local food pantry, and sell to neighbors and friends. Well, I planted way too many cucumber plants and had more than we could ever eat. So I decided to make soap out of them. My goal was to give them to our clients as thank you gifts. Well, once I posted the picture, orders started coming in! Our soaps are all handmade, hand-cut and are always free of palm oil.
Our soaps come scented and unscented (we love the naked versions!) and are great for people with sensitive skin. Because each batch is homemade and ingredient sources vary, variations will happen from batch-to-batch. One batch of Golden Girl Soap may be darker than another because darker honey was used. A partial list of ingredients includes: Distilled Water, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Castor Oil, Cocoa Butter, Cucumber Puree, Mint, Honey, Sweet potato, Ground cinnamon, Lemon zest, Coffee, Cocoa Powder, Sodium Hydroxide, Essential Oils
