Black Cherry Soap #2. Small batch (2 bars) of soap made with black cherries for SCC Food & Drink challenge. Method described in this thread: https://www.soapmakingforum.com/threads/black-cherries-soap.75512/
Made for SCC June 2019 challenge, advanced category, using 1:8 ratio of food to oils. I puréed the cherries, prepared natural colorants, created the water replacement drinks from scratch & made this soap via CPOP. Smells divine, like baked goods, no added fragrance.

Another view of the same soap batch as the Pink Man Group soap that shows a male torso. 30% Soy wax, 30% OO, 15% Cocoa Butter, 15% Shea, 10% CO. 2% SF, [33% Lye] Fragrance: Dragon's Blood. Steph's M&M: Peacock Blue; Radically Reddish Neon; Cosmic Purple.
Made with Pull-Through method & mesh bag. A salvaged Cuties bag, chop sticks & gear ties kept it in shape at the bottom of mold, then pulled up & through the soap batter. The male torso is what gave me the name for this vegan 70% hard oils soap. Fragrance: Dragon's Blood.
