Sweet Potato Soap



Sweet potatoes are a nutritionally rich food. They are loaded with
Vitamin C, High in Calcium, Potassium, and Beta-carotene
which converts to Vitamin A in your body.

 Because Sweet Potatoes have a high level of Vitamin A and beta-carotene it is a super food for your skin.


It got me thinking about making a Sweet Potato Soap!

For this soap I used:
Cocoa Butter
Coconut Oil
Grapeseed Oil
Olive Oil
Palm Oil
Sunflower Oil
Beeswax\
Lard
 Tallow
Sodium Hydroxide
Arizona rain water
Titanium Dioxide 
Pureed Sweet Potatoes
Greek Yogurt
and Rice Flower & Shea Type Fragrance Oil.


Cut the next day
