New Exfoliants at Bramble Berry!

Ginger Root
Apricot Seed Powder

Almond Meal

I love using exfoliants because they vary the texture and look of soap. Plus, exfoliating helps to expose new skin and new skin is pink, dewy and fresh looking. Who doesn't like line-free, fresh skin?

I start at 1 tsp of exfoliants per pound of soap (melt and pour or cold process). You can always add more but you can't take it out. So, be prudent and conservative on your addition rate.

I can think of a bunch of yummy theme soaps using these exfoliants - Ginger with the Orange Ginger fragrance. Almond Meal with our Almond Biscotti Fragrance. Apricot Seed Powder with Summer Fling. Yum!
