THE JOY OF SOAP REVIEW AND GIVE-A-WAY

I contacted the Joy of Soap a few weeks ago and asked them if I could do a review on a few of their products. They sent me 3 half-bar samples, in Gardenia Goosebumps, Feeling Frisky, and Kiss Me Kiwi.


( a picture only, not what I actually got)




First of all, the smells are awesome, but not overpowering. I love the smells, they are so very nice...


"Also, we will offer all of your readers a 15% discount in our online store through july 31st. To recieve this discount, just enter this coupon: 1277398451 in the Coupon Code box in the check out screen"




Gardenia Goosebumps smells like gardenia flowers. Kiss Me Kiwi smells like kiwi and a hint of sugar, and Feeling Frisky smells like oranges.

The ingredients for all the soaps are:


Water, Organic Olive Oil, Sodium Hydroxide (According to another website, Sodium Hydroxide is Lye, which reacts with something else. The reaction is called saponification, and that's what makes soap I think, hopefully I've read that right) Organic coconut oil, Organic palm oil, Castor oil.



The individual element particular to each bar is:



Feeling Frisky has Tangerine, Grapefruit, and Lime essential oils and canedula flower petals.









Gardenia Goosebumps has Gardenia fragrance and Soft Yellow Oxide.












Kiss Me Kiwi has Kiwi Fragrance Oil, and Chromium Oxide Green.





If you guys are worried about oxides, here is what one website had to say on the subject:


( The following article on soap coloring options was inspired by a reader's question concerning the differences between oxides, micas, ultramarines and colorants and when to use which one. The article was written by Anne-Marie Faiola.


Soap Coloring Options: Oxides, Micas, Ultramarines - What's the Difference?
by Anne-Marie Faiola
You're right, there are a lot of soap coloring options out there. I'll go over the most common and the pros and cons:

(1) Soap Pigments - oxides and ultramarines fall into this category. Pigments, like most colorants out there, do not fall into the natural category. They are manufactured in labs and have been since the 70s. Apparently, pigments (oxides and ultramarines) used to be mined but the FDA stepped in and demanded some purity so since then, those colorants have been manufactured in a lab - same molecular structure just a different way of processing. Some Iron Oxides are still extracted naturally; however, Iron oxides in nature (dirt) are often stuck with toxic metals like lead, arsenic, mercury, antimony and selenium (when they are in nature). This is why the FDA stepped in to regulate cosmetic colorants so the level of toxic metal present are present in such low concentrations that they are considered "safe." In fact, only synthetically prepared iron oxides are approved for use in cosmetics in this country. (Johnson, S.T. & Wordell, C.J. "Homeopathic and herbal medicine: Considerations for formulary evaluation," Formulary, 32, 1167, Nov. 1997. )
