Spinster Sisters Patchouli Rose Handmade Organic Soap
The Maker: Spinster Sisters Co. was started by one Kelly Perkins, though not quite so spinstery as she would lead you to believe. She calls her shop a microsoapery, which we think is brilliant, and even though they’re not all that “micro” these days, each soap, scrub, and salve is still made with pure ingredients, tons of heart, and a thoughtful touch.
The Work: Handmade with giggles, I am sure, in Colorado in small batches using the cold process soap method. They use a base of olive, coconut, palm (sustainable/organic), castor, apricot kernel and argan oils, and combine that with cocoa butter and fair-trade shea butter for added moisturizing. Each bar retains the natural glycerin that is produced during the saponification process, for added moisturizing.
