"Vanitas vanitatum omnia vanitas"
Vanity of vanities, all is vanity. What better way to remind yourself of the transient nature of earthly pleasures than with handmade soap? Symbolic of the brevity of life, these unique soaps are scented with the essence of citrus, earth, and sensual flowers.
I am an artist with a passion for the arcane, absurd, and morbid. Typically I sculpt, mold, and then cast my pieces in resin. In the last year I found that my sculpts lent themselves wonderfully to soapmaking, and so here we are! Tried and tested, these are bath products for the cynic.
Here's where you come in! Every pledge furthers my ability to create by providing me with much needed soapmaking reagents, and quality packaging.
Soaps are made with coconut oil, colored with natural clay/herb/flower, and formulated to moisturize without sacrificing lather. All but the white soaps are scented with a combination of essential oils. Solid lotions and unisex cologne are made with Shea butter, Beeswax/Candelilla Wax, and Calendula, Arnica flower, and Chamomile infused Almond oil (and scented with a blend of essential oils).
Each Vanitas bar is a generous 7-7.5oz, and each Memento Mori soap pack is upwards of 6oz. Solid lotions are 1.5oz each, and all are made in small batches to ensure quality.
STRETCH GOAL REACHED!
Wow, I am floored by the amount of support I've received in just a few days. Thank you!
The Astral Goat's Milk Soap bar will be added as an extra reward to tiers $30 and above, and available by itself as another $15 tier. The Astral soap will be available in the same colors and scents as the Vanitas and Memento Mori soaps. I have included an example of the soap below!
Risks and challenges
With 3 successful crowdfunding projects under my belt, I am confident in my ability to fulfill all pledges in a reasonable amount of time. While cold process soaps do take 4-6 weeks to be fully cured, I have allotted myself plenty of time for production and do not foresee any delays.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
