Tapir Skin Bastille Soap

There is always the first time for everything. So, today we made some bastille soaps. Well, it’s a term for barsoap containing 70% Olea europaea (olive) oil and 30% any hard oil. It should have a milder texture and longer curing time than other barsoap.

As inspired by tapir skin color, we made the batter into two parts, which we added charcoal powder in one part and nothing in other part. We didn’t use TiO₂ because it basically had no other use beside of color functionality.

Did you see some brown dots over there? Yes, they are some pieces of our previous experiment. 😆
