A note from our soap maker...

Dear Diary, September 6th 2011...

Just started working at the BOSI factory on 15 Jones Rd in New Minas. I will be their new soap maker. I'm a bit nervous but was told " if you can bake, you can make". My basic Training began with 4 pots and a two burner stove and oil everywhere.

Measuring oils is the easy part, maintaining proper temperature well...that's a different story...then there's leveling off the top..I'll get the hang of it, I hope.

Sorry I haven't been around lately but I've been elbow deep in oils. I'm having a blast. Some of the soaps look good enough to eat.. but I wouldn't try it.

Where has this month gone? It has been busy. There has been talk about a new product list...exciting.

Dear Diary May 8th 2012...

Dear Diary Sept 20th 2012...

You arrive home, and the first thing you want to do is grab a shower and a rugged soap to clean up - but many people don’t realize that cleansing with cheap, harsh, skin care products can actually create further damage to your biggest organ – your skin.

Sure, you want to cleanse off the dirt, bacteria, and pollutants your skin comes into contact with - but you don't want to replace that dirt with chemicals that can be absorbed into the body.
