"The Colonel" SUDZ - Lavandir Matcha

  • Sale
  • Regular price $4.50

Introducing "The Colonel" SUDZ, the more sophisticated and indulging cousins to our "SonSun" SUDZ!  Created in small batches from organic raw ingredients and infused with all-natural essential oils and botanicals, everything about these artisanal soaps feels expensive (except for the price tags).  The lather is more substantial and velvety, the scents are more complex and intense, and the botanicals add extra benefits for your skin while you cleanse.  These soaps are named "The Colonel" because they're truly upscale and demand attention, no matter which one you use.  

Scent:  Lavandir Matcha - That's no misspelling, this scent is largely thanks to a "false lavender" called Lavandin, a hybridized species of lavender with a richer scent and seemingly-lower risk* for skin irritation; so we've spelled 'lavender' with two 'A's and an 'I' to reflect the origin of this particular scent.  Immediately recognizable the moment you smell it, this simple blend of Lavandin Essential Oil and natural Matcha (Green Tea) Powder is surprisingly complex and long-lasting.  Aside from smelling amazing, this soap has anti-inflammatory properties thanks to the Matcha Powder; which also acts as a natural micro-exfoliant and gives the soap its distinct color.  PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO LAVENDER IN ANY FORM, YOU WILL LIKELY EXPERIENCE AN ALLERGIC REACTION TO LAVANDIN.  PLEASE TRY ONE OF OUR MANY OTHER TYPES OF SOAP OR CONSULT A DERMATOLOGIST PRIOR TO PURCHASING THIS SOAP.  

Ingredients:   Peach Kernel Oil, Palm Kernel Oil, Kokum Butter, Illipe Butter, Mango Butter, Stearic Acid, Water, Sodium Hydroxide; + Lavandin Essential Oil, Matcha Powder

Due to the fact that every soap is handmade from a small batch (<2 lbs. per batch), the exact weight of each soap will vary slightly.  We can only offer approximate weights, but each soap is within a margin of a few grams (or one-tenth of an ounce).

-All SUDZ soaps are great for daily cleaning on all areas of the skin, from your face to your feet and everything between. 

-SUDZ are also great shampoo bars for deep cleanses or when traditional shampoo just isn't cutting it; which also makes them great for bathing your furry friends! 

-The rich, luxurious lather produced by all SUDZ soaps is excellent for shaving; just wet the bar and swirl your shave brush across the surface until you get a nice lather built up, then apply to the area you plan to shave. 
"Don't have a shave brush?  If you have an old blush or face powder brush, you do. I have been using an old Real Techniques blush brush for about 2 years!" - Note from Drewby, The 'Son' in Son of Suzette

*There is very limited literature regarding the risk of skin irritation for lavandin, largely due to the lack of individual reports regarding irritation from skin exposure to lavandin.  Basically, there doesn't SEEM to be as much risk of skin irritation or adverse reaction to lavandin as opposed to lavender, and lavandin is routinely used as a replacement for lavender.  However, an individual's past reaction to any essential oil is the most important factor in determining whether a particular oil will be irritating for you.  If you have suffered an adverse reaction to ANY form of lavender in the past, whether in plant form or essential oil form, please be careful when trying any new products which contain natural lavender, synthetic lavender, or a lavender replacement like lavandin.  Most importantly, even though lavandin is considered a "false lavender", it is a hybrid species of two types of lavender and is itself scientifically categorized as a type of lavender; if you are allergic to lavender, it is likely that lavandin will trigger an allergic reaction as well.
