Using Our Custom Soap Stamp

Using our new soap stampWe decided to take the plunge and invest in a custom soap stamp to highlight our new line of products this year. I wanted to make sure the stamp would be here in time for our soap cutting day (leave it to me to get myself in a bind by making the decision to do this last minute – typical) and after receiving a lot of “sorry, we can’t get it there that fast” type responses from manufacturer after manufacturer, we finally found Steve who was able to deliver this stamp in just 4 days (one of which was a post office holiday). Thank you Steve!

Our new line of soap, which we are making with organic coconut and olive oils, now has an extra touch to make it that much more special!

You can find Steve on Etsy at Etsy.com/shop/CustomMadeStuff – thanks again Steve for making the impossible possible!

Soaping Update January 2014

Regular vs organic olive oil in soapWe created our first few batches of Castile soap using the new shipment of organic extra virgin olive oil we just received! The differences between the non-organic evoo (shown in the photo – the loaf on the left) we had been using and this new organic ingredient (the loaf on the right) are amazing, just look at the color difference! The organic evoo is a much richer and darker green. It also took at least three times longer to reach trace (this part was a bit disconcerting at first, but we reached trace eventually).  In the end though, we are extremely pleased with the outcome and the new soap should be a much richer experience for the skin once it has cured.

In the next few weeks, you will see a huge shift on our website as we move inventory around to showcase our new product lines. Stay tuned!

What is New in 2014?

Here at Liskabora, we are very excited about the upcoming year!  We have recently joined the Handcrafted Soapers Guild, and we have finally (yes, finally) made the decision to switch to using organic coconut and olive oils in our soaps.  We will also be adding an all natural fragrance line to our inventory in the coming months!  As always, we will remain steadfast in our dedication to using only gluten free ingredients.  Stay tuned for our upcoming product releases and for a huge sale and giveaways of our old inventory!
