Soap Seconds

Soap Seconds

While there is very little waste in our soapmaking process, we always end up with Seconds (bars that are 'less than perfect') in the cutting process. We have the cutting process down to a science (I'm a measure twice cut once type of person) but there are always end pieces or areas where a bubble got trapped while the soap was hardening or got damaged in the process because, hey, we make everything by hand.

We call these bars 'Seconds' - this refers to the slight imperfections that can happen in the making process.

Examples of what these slight imperfections could look like

Live edge from an end cut

 

Too small to fit our standard 4oz bar weight

 

Bubbles, or trapped air during the saponification process

 

Uneven color throughout the bar

 

Small dent from handling while soft

 

These are the bars I use! I take these home usually a couple of pounds at a time and that’s my soap supply for a few months. We have a special rack on our curing station where our team knows we can grab soap from when we need a bar to take home.

While we still donate our tiny scraps to Clean the World (we donated over 250 lbs in 2023!), we wanted to share our secret stash with you, our community. Offering them to you through this Seconds Sale allows us to make our already very eco-friendly soap-making process nearly zero waste! The best part? Store these bars in a cool dry place and they’ll last up to a year!

 

Thank you once again for your support and I hope you enjoy!
