The Farm Bar Blend: The Essence of the Finger Lakes
- by Jennifer Morrisey
My journey from content creator tp soap maker stemmed from a desire to create more than just a product; I yearned to craft a tangible embodiment of the Finger Lakes region and the heart and soul of our farm. The inspiration was clear: to use tallow from our own herd, rendered with care through traditional methods in small batches. But this new endeavor was not just about making soap; it was about honoring the rich agricultural heritage that our region proudly represents. Each ingredient in our "Farm Bar Blend" Soap has been meticulously chosen to pay homage to this legacy, weaving together a story of nature, nurture, and a deep connection to the land.
Tallow: Creamy Lather, Sustainable Care
At the heart of our Farm Bar Blend is tallow, an incredibly moisturizing ingredient. Tallow from our own Black Angus herd, here in the Finger Lakes, gives our soap a creamy lather and ensures it lasts longer. It's a sustainable choice, transforming what was once a waste product into something meaningful and beautiful.
Lard: Gentle and Moisturizing
Next, we add lard to our blend. Like tallow, lard enhances the soap's creamy texture and moisturizing benefits. It's perfect for all skin types, even sensitive skin, ensuring a gentle and soothing experience.
Grapeseed Oil: A Touch of the Vineyards
Grapeseed oil, a tribute to the Finger Lakes vineyards, is a light oil rich in Vitamin E.
Castor Oil: Hydrating Bubbles
Castor oil is known for its hydrating properties. It contributes to the soap's lathering capabilities, ensuring luxurious, big bubbles that delight washing.
Olive Oil: The Timeless Skin Nourisher
Olive oil, a skincare staple, brings nourishing vitamins and antioxidants to our blend. Gentle and deeply moisturizing, it cares for your skin, leaving it soft and supple.
Coconut Oil: Sturdy and Bubbly
Coconut oil gives our soap a hard, sturdy structure and a delightful, bubbly lather. Its fatty acids are known for their nourishing properties, making it an excellent choice for skin health.
Cocoa Butter: Moisturizing Richness
Finally, cocoa butter adds an extra layer of moisturizing richness. Its ability to hydrate and nourish the skin while creating a protective barrier to hold in moisture makes it another key ingredient in our Farm Bar Blend.
FLX Farmhouse Soap isn't just another bar of soap; it's a piece of the Finger Lakes, a part of our farm's soul, lovingly crafted to bring a slice of our world into yours. Each ingredient, chosen with purpose and care, represents our commitment to preserving the beauty and richness of our region. We invite you to experience not just the luxurious lather and nourishing properties of our soap but also to become a part of the story that each bar tells.
Thank you for embracing our vision and allowing us to share a part of our heart with you.
