Soaps

HANDS, BODY, FACE, HAIR

ONE BAR FOR FULL BODY CARE

Painted Turtle Artisan Soap is mild and gentle tallow soap. It rinses easily, leaving skin and hair feeling clean and soft. The lather is soft, rich and dense, with very tiny bubbles that gently massage the skin and scalp clean. Tallow soaps make an excellent shampoo, and can be worked to produce the foamy lather associated with traditional shaving soap.

Tallow soaps form hard bars and cakes. Tallow soaps require a few seconds of agitation and work to produce a rich, dense lather.

Keep dry when not in use; Painted Turtle Artisan Soap is durable and long-lasting.

Felted Soap

Felted soaps are tallow soaps coated in wool. When activated with water, the wool helps to agitate the soap, quickly creating a light foamy lather. The agitation of soap and water causes the wool to felt around the soap, making it easier to grip. The felted wool is mildly abrasive, ideal for a gentle hand or body scrub.

The wool coating helps to protect the soap, works up a light foam quickly, and can help to conserve water. The felted wool coating lets you use the soap right up to the very last suds. When you’re done with your soap, the remaining felt can be used to line plant pots, composted, or enjoyed as a whimsical object of art.

WARNING: Do not let babies or dogs play with felted soap/remaining felt. A felted wool soap ball is VERY LIKELY to cause choking or internal blockages.

Soap Stones

Small cakes of soap, felted to look like colorful river stones. These soap stones will fit comfortably into small and medium sized hands. They are ideal soaps for hand washing, or travel.

WARNING: Do not let babies or dogs play with felted soap/remaining felt. A felted wool soap ball is VERY LIKELY to cause choking or internal blockages.

Soap Buddies

Cakes of soap, playfully felted to look like colorful shapes and animals. These soap buddies will fit comfortably into medium and large sized hands. They are ideal soaps for either hand washing or in the bath.

WARNING: Do not let babies or dogs play with felted soap/remaining felt. A felted wool soap ball is VERY LIKELY to cause choking or internal blockages.
