Mocha Coffee Bean Milkmade Soap...a gentle cleansing formula with a faint sweet cream aroma that gives a luxurious, creamy lather. The finely ground coffee beans are great for light exfoliation.
The botanical name for coffee essential oil is Coffea arabica L. No synthetic fragrances or colors are used. The silky conditioning lather from the raw butters (Shea & Cocoa), and rich creaminess from local raw goat milk from Belleville, PA (Amish Country) make this a great bar of soap for your skin and senses.
All of my handmade soaps are scented with organic or wild-crafted essential oils, so they're great for those who are sensitive to synthetic fragrances. Lightly scented, so they're not overpowering. Just a subtle, pleasant aroma while bathing or hand-washing, and the scent won't remain on your skin afterwards. This soap doesn't smell like coffee, even though there are finely ground coffee beans, fresh brewed coffee, and coffee essential oil included in this recipe. It has more of a very light sweet cream aroma.
Each large handmade bar of soap weighs approximately 5.5 - 6.5 oz. Each bar is hand cut and beveled, so the look and weight may vary slightly, and measures approximately 3" long x 2-1/8" wide x 1-1/2" thick.
SOAP CARE TIP:
Handcrafted soap bars will last longer if they are allowed to dry fully between uses. To prolong the life of your handmade soap, always store in a slotted or deeply ridged soap dish. Do not leave your soap in standing water.
Ingredients: olive oil, coconut oil, local raw goat milk, fresh brewed coffee, sodium hydroxide, shea butter, sustainable palm oil, cocoa butter, castor oil, essential oils of Brazilian coffee Arabica and balsam of Peru, organic cocoa powder, coffee beans (ground & whole), tussah silk

Warning: While all skin types and individuals react differently to skin care oils, please do not use if you are sensitive or allergic to certain essential oils or tree nut oils. Even though all of the ingredients I use are organic or minimally processed, it's still a good idea to do a patch test first. Pregnant or nursing women should always consult their physician before using any products containing essential oils.

Please read each listing and my shop policies carefully before completing your purchase. If you're interested in an item, I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have, or send additional photos before you complete your purchase.
If you are unhappy with your purchase, I'd be happy to provide an exchange for you (buyer pays for insured and trackable shipping both ways). Sorry - no returns, exchanges, or store credit for any perfumes, skincare products, or soap. Please read each listing carefully before making your purchase. Samples are available for purchase (depending on availability) before committing to a larger size for all of my botanical perfumes, skincare products, and handmade soap. Please contact me if you'd like a custom listing created for you for any samples, since not all samples are listed for sale in my shop.
If returning an item for exchange, buyer is responsible for return shipping charges with insurance and tracking information. Return items must be sent back, or postmarked, within 7 days of date of receipt. Original shipping charges will not be refunded. Buyer is also responsible for shipping charges to send exchange.

*Reworked boots - please contact me within 3 days of receiving your boots regarding fit issues, otherwise an exchange or store credit will not be issued. You may exchange them for another pair, or return them for a store credit (buyer is responsible for return shipping and shipping charges for the exchange). Original shipping charges will not be refunded. Please measure your foot before purchasing any of my reworked boots. Please make sure to contact me regarding any questions you may have as far as fit or sizing. If possible, I'll measure the sole length and ball of foot width of the boots you're interested in for a better idea of fit. I mostly use vintage boots with character that are well broken in and the sizing could be off. I try to list the sizes as accurately as possible, but there is a risk with buying online without being able to try them on first. If slightly too big, boot socks or insoles can be added for a better fit. I do offer exchanges or store credit if they don't fit. Also, buyer is responsible for return insured shipping. Once I receive the item back from you in original, unworn and undamaged condition, your exchange or store credit will be issued.

I will try to work with you. I will either try to fix the item for free, or offer store credit (buyer pays for insured shipping expenses both ways). Thank you for understanding.
If your item is lost in the post for more than 30 days or arrives damaged, please contact me and I'll file an insurance claim through Etsy. Once the claim is approved, I'll issue you a refund for the price of the item only. I do not issue refunds for any postage paid. I'm sorry for this but I cannot be held responsible for what happens to items once they are shipped.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

High quality soap. It is moisturizing and lightly exfoliating with a creamy lather. I have used it several times before reviewing and see that it will last well ( I keep my soaps in a slotted holder so they don't sit in water). Packaged nicely and shipped quickly. I will definitely buy here again.
