Review: Sweet Cream Suds Barber Shop Soap


It is so difficult to break the inertia of not writing and get down to really writing a blog post, though I am chock block full of blog posts to write. Newton’s laws are true! I really tend to remain in its state of motion/non motion. Anyway, I decided to write a review of this soap as I had pictures with me right now. I got this soap as a gift, because I have not come across this company before. So, here we go!

What: Sweet Cream Suds Goats Milk Barber Shop Soap

Websitehttp://www.sweetcreamsuds.com

About the Company/Products: Conveniently from their website 🙂

Pure & Natural Goat Milk Soap Handmade in Crowell, Texas

Here at Sweet Cream Suds we make pure goat milk soap with 100% fresh goat milk from our own herd of Nubian dairy goats.

Each 4.5oz bar contains one and half ounces of creamy milk.

Each batch is handmade from scratch using the cold process method, which produces a mild and gentle bar of soap.

We use very high quality fragrance oils that are sulfate free. However, if you are  sensitive to fragrance, we do have fragrance free all natural soaps.

Ingedients include Fresh Goat Milk, Shea Butter, and Saponified Oils of Olive, Coconut, & Castor, pthalate free fragrance oils and some bars contain natural botanicals such as blueberry seeds, ground oatmeal, clay, or raw honey.

Paraben and Sulfate Free

This company is a one woman show, local business started in 2009 and photos of cute kids and goats on their website adds to their appeal in my eyes.

Ingredients: Fresh goats milk, Natural fats and saponified oils of olive, avocado,safflower and coconut, contains essential oils and fragrance. (This was written down from the wrapping on the soap).
Nothing I have problems with.

Notes of Italian Bergamot, Garden Basil, Oakmoss, Patchouli.

Price: 6.50 USD

For USA, the price is comparable to lot of other organic/natural soaps but it is still considered expensive for 1 soap by most people considering how cheap the mass manufactured chemical versions are. For someone interested in natural cosmetics, I believe it is a good deal because soaps last you for a decent period of time.

Packaging: Simple paper around the soap. No plastic wrapping. Eco friendly.

Smell: Lovely and awesome. Reminded uncle of his Grandma and home, so he got this soap but not before I managed to take pictures and try it twice for review 🙂

Feel: Rich, creamy feeling, not oily, not drying on skin, lathers very well (isn’t that a major complaint about natural soaps/shampoos? That they do not lather well). So feels great.

Overall: I love it but uncle loves it more, so he got to use it. I am glad we discovered this company by chance because of the gift and would love to try out the other flavors in the future.

Disclaimer: This review is entirely my own  and true opinion and was not sponsored by anybody including Sweet Cream Suds. It was a personal gift and not a gift for review purposes.
 

Edited to Add: This soap is really hard to obtain out of USA. Do take note that this is a one-woman store and  only small batches are made. Like many small scale US sellers,this store does not bother about international buyers  and I can’t get a response out of the shop when I am willing to pay for shipping. Also, a lot of the soaps are out of stock last time I checked. So a big minus for availability and service.
