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.

We should first say that we believe unethical palm oil production is a significant problem and is not at all what we stand for as a company. When harvested correctly, palm oil is a powerful, natural, wonderful ingredient that many communities rely on for income.
