We are in the middle of our square bar summer! Three great new Square Bars are coming back: Honey Kiwigranate and Honey Goatmeal Split (these have not been in production for over two years!) and Cool Cucumber (which hasn’t been in production for four years, which seems crazy!).
We’re big fans of the Honey Kiwigranate Square Bar, which is a fantastic bar to fight the signs of aging! Here’s why:
- Pomegranate has powerful antioxidants and reduces inflammation, which can be known to minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
- Kiwi is a rich source of vitamins A, C and E. The vitamin C in kiwi is important in collagen formation.
- Honey is one of nature’s most revered skin remedies. Thanks to its antibacterial and antiseptic abilities, it may benefit oily and blemish-prone skin. Honey helps skin naturally hold its moisture, so it helps keep the skin hydrated but not oily.
If you are looking for a good option for a cleansing facial bar, this might just be it! Glycerin soap is a great facial cleanser because so many are natural options that will not strip oils from your face. Glycerin can help lock in your skin’s natural moisture and prevent over-drying.
The next item for June is our classic Cool Cucumber Square Bar! We combine cucumber and aloe with our olive oil glycerin base to create a super-soothing, moisturizing bar. This bar’s cooling effect is the perfect remedy for skin that’s been in the sun too long, so you’ll definitely want to keep it on hand all summer long. When you need relief from too much fun in the sun, reach for Cool Cucumber.
Next up is a big favorite: say hello to the Honey Goatmeal Split Square Bar! This was HD Soap’s first layered soap, and we love getting to bring it back every year. We take a honey glycerin soap and add a thick layer of our goat’s milk soap that is enriched with ground oatmeal. Anyone dealing with dry, itchy skin is going to love this bar! The oatmeal is very soothing for dry skin, and the honey glycerin soap is a gentle cleanser. Your skin will feel moisturized and lightly exfoliated, which is a good combination!
Summer weather seems to be slow in coming, we will make it appear with our perfect summer scents! Welcome back to our Peach Pineapple season! Peach Pineapple is a delicious scent combination that we totally love! The From Scratch Peach Pineapple Soap is a bar that we designed socially in our Life of a Soapmaker group. It is predominantly made with shea butter, but it also includes goat’s milk, almond oil, and olive oil. The coloring comes from our favorite yellow and orange pigments. This was a fun and fruity recommendation from the members of our group! Fans of the scent should try our Peach Pineapple From Scratch Scrub (now formulated without coconut oil!), Peach Lip Balm or Peach Pineapple Mini Bath Bombs!
Last up is the new Linen Breeze Candle and Wax Melt! This scent captures the clean, calming scent of line-dried laundry gently billowing in the seaside breeze. This fresh, airy fragrance oil pairs linen and light florals, grounded by notes of soft powder and sandalwood. We love that our natural fragrance oils integrate real essential oils. In this blend, you will notice clove leaf, cananga flower, sweet orange, patchouli, and eucalyptus.
Next month will be our last chance to bring back our summer Square Bars, and we know you will love them all! We hope you enjoy these new releases! Tag us on social media with #HDSoap or #HDSoapVIPClub as you enjoy your new products; we love to see everyone’s HD Soap skincare routines!
