Yummy Mandarijn

If you browse every handmade soap in the market, you will always find only melt-and-pour, cold-processed, or hot-processed (or even rebatched) soap with many colors or shapes that could melt your heart. They could contain expensive, exclusive, or exotic oils, but they were saponified anyway.

Any nutrition contained in them were always consider as a very low concentration. Our idea was to fortify the soap, so the users could get the real nutrition onto their skin.
Inspired by yellow-brown Mandarijn cake from #Surakarta, we made some soaps with cocoa powder on top.

For preparation, we added vitamin B₃ solution to the mixed oil with half-and-half solution method. A quite fishy aroma then appeared while saponification was proceeding. We used fruity-type fragrance for the batter and put some green pieces of manufactured soap above. We wondered how it would affect my skin later on.
