Back to Scented Soaps

Bûche de Noël / Terra


This has a deep, smooth aroma that includes vetiver, grapefruit, frankincense and geranium essential oils as well as a subtle undertone courtesy of the organic cocoa powder that gives the soap its soft brown contrast. Organic coconut milk adds a delicious creaminess with shea and cocoa butters, olive oil and rice bran oils conditioning the skin.

There is a choice of packaging.  Please choose from:

Basic packaging:
The soap bar has a paper cigar band label with full ingredient details and is packed in a compostable glassine bag

Gift box packaging:
The soap bar is wrapped in a translucent vellum sleeve with a handmade paper band and tied with a fine satin ribbon.  It nestles in fine ivory shredded paper in our bespoke ivory ribbon-pull matchbox-style gift box.  Except for the ribbon, all packaging is recyclable.

All mineral pigments we use are laboratory-purified, nature-identical oxides, hydroxides and ultramarines.  Legislation now prohibits (thankfully) the use of mined sources of these minerals as they may contain harmful contaminants such as arsenic and toxic heavy metals.  The mineral pigments we use have exactly the same chemical formula as the mined version, but are 100% pure, non-irritating and thus totally safe for cosmetic use; EU labelling directives requires that each one be listed according to a specific universally acknowledged code number, the ‘ci number’.
We do NOT use any synthetic colours or pigments such as F&DC lab colours.
Our supplier for mica has assured us that it is not mined using child labour.

Price is for one bar, 93g approx / naked bar.

Please note: as this is a handmade product there will be variations between individual bars; the product images displayed are only examples of the design although the overall theme will be the same.  Generally speaking, no two bars are exactly the same and may have slightly different dimensions owing to their hand-cut nature.
