(well, at least in my opinion).
the first winter i experienced in central new york was horrific on my skin. it was red, irritated, & ended up cracking pretty bad. especially on my hands. my skin would feel like it was on fire whenever it came in contact with water & the lotion pretty much made it feel the same way. the next winter my sweet mother.in.law sent us a whole batch of soap to use... the difference was incredible. no redness. no irritation. no cracking. no burning. just smooth & soft skin. ah! i was in love.
my mother.in.law & her sister make this soap in small batches using all natural ingredients... olive oil, soybean oil, vegetable oil, coconut oil, & in the exfoliating bar, oatmeal. its incredibly moisturizing, its hypoallergenic, its vegan... its pretty dang great.
i just listed some in my shop. right now there are two different kinds available, the natural beauty bar, & the exfoliating oatmeal beauty bar. i also have 3 packs available in both kinds, but i would be more than happy to make a customized package for anyone who is interested.
