Love this scent of our By the Sea Soap Shoppe Kids "Country Apple" Soap and so does my 8-year-old granddaughter!
The scent of this Country Apple soap has a delightful mix of fruity floral and crisp green apple with a touch of citrus and a suggestion of berries and peach. It's really nice.
And it brings the same moisturizing, cleansing and healing combination from the coconut, olive and palm oils.
Great for your kids (and for you) and it's fun!

Some of you might be wondering, "Lye? Isn’t lye dangerous? Won’t it harm my skin?”
First - all actual soap is made with lye. No lye, no soap. (A lot of "soap products" in the stores are actually detergent. If you look at the labels, they are not called "soap". They are called "hand wash" or "body cleanser" or some such thing.)
This could become a chemistry lesson, but to make it short - soap is made from lye, fats and liquid. When the lye mixes with the fats and liquid, some kind of chemical reaction goes on, and the lye and fats change into soap and glycerin. In the process, the lye is all used up. Even though lye is used to make the soap, there is no lye left in the soap at all.
This is why soap made with lye is not dangerous, and it definitely won’t hurt your skin.
What about oxide powders? Oxides are natural substances; the result of natural minerals reacting with oxygen. An example of this is plain old rust - when iron reacts with oxygen, or a green roof you might see on an old building. Nothing unnatural here!
Because the bars are handmade, you can expect to see slight differences in the size and weight. After the soap is made, it needs to cure for at least one month. However, after it's cured, some of the moisture in the bar continues to evaporate out. The bar shrinks a little; enough that the label we've wrapped around the bar becomes a bit loose and the weight decreases a little. The bar gets harder, and this is actually better. There is nothing lost from the soap, and it will not dissolve as quickly when it does get wet in a shower or bath.
The bar is approximately 2 1/2 in. or 6 cm. in diameter. Weight is between 2.8 and 3 oz., or between 80 and 84 grams.
