The soap process starts out on the milking stand.

Milk Cubes

The goat's milk is filtered and frozen

Soap Making

Lye is added to the frozen milk. The chemical reaction melts the milk and then oils and scents are added and hand beat until the mixture "traces".

Soap in Mold

The soap is poured into a wooden mold and refrigerated for 24 hours then allowed to rest for another 24 hours.

Soap Brick

Once the soap brick is removed from its mold it is cut into bars.

Soap Ready to Dry

The soap bars are placed on a parchment lined wire rack for the curing stage.

Soap Curing

The soap bars are allowed to cure in a ventilated area for 5 weeks. This allows the soap ample time to cure and will ensure that it lasts as long as possible.
