Did you know that soap can be made in any number of molds? Our longtime customers know that we love using unique molds—from cupcakes to flowers—for our facial soaps, but there's also a diversity of bar molds you can use, too.
We recently started using slab molds to create some of our vegan soaps, which allows us to make more bars at once than our old "loaf" molds. It's a wonderful way to save time, but it's also a delightful way to add even more intricate visual designs to our soaps.
Here is a peek at how we used a slab mold to create an upcoming addition to our spring soap collection: a sweet, pineapple-y summer soap we think you'll love. What's your favorite soap shape? Let us know!
