Soothing, ultra-nourishing handmade soap / 3.5 oz
MyHavtorn's Sea Buckthorn Soap is one of its founders' favorite formulas, but they haven't made it since 2013: its production is a time-consuming process that involves 3-6 months of curing (and that's after hand-picking and drying each leaf of Happy Tea that goes into it).
When Robin and Ingrid told us that they were making their special soap again, we were beside ourselves with excitement — and not just because we love things that are hard to get. After seven years, we still remembered using the Sea Buckthorn Soap like it was yesterday: this is the most nourishing soap bar we've ever laid our hands on, a true savior for those with dry and sensitive skin.
The secret of this soap, as with all things MyHavtorn, lies in the sea buckthorn: in its production, Robin (who does the whole process, from start to finish, himself) adds the sea buckthorn oil later so that it isn't entirely saponified. This means that more of it is available to soothe and moisturize your skin, which makes it our favorite soap for dry hands and itchy, winter-dry legs.
The icing on the top is the fact that it includes a generous sprinkling of individual leaves of Happy Tea to give it a scrubby feel, along with a light scent of Juniper and Lemongrass to match the fragrance of their heavenly Body Oil.
We were so excited to get this soap back on our shelves that Robin prepared a special preview batch for us that he wrapped himself in charmingly rustic paper packaging to match the "wild soul" of the soap. A fancier boxed version will come later; until then, trust us — you'll want to snap up this preview version at its special price.
