Honey Lemon Marigold Hand Soap

Honey Lemon Marigold Hand Soap

$ 8.00

In 17th-century England, soaps were made from caustic lye, derived from ashes, and animal fat, such as tallow. These ingredients resulted in a relatively unattractive finished product, with no added fragrance or botanicals, but were quite functional. The soap that is made here at Plimoth Plantation, for sale in the museum shops, is a modern soap formula, made with glycerine and vegetable fats, but inspired by gardens and recipes of the past in its scents and additives.

Ingredients: Coconut oil, palm oil, safflower oil, glycerine (kosher, of vegetable origin), honey (100% pure natural grade A honey), purified water, sodium hydroxide (saponifying agent), sorbitol (moisturizer), propylene glycol (of vegetable origin), sorbitan oleate (emulsifier), oat protein (conditioner), calendula (pot marigold), lemon verbena oil.
