Lotusbtr handmade soap [review]

Enjoy your Labor Day weekend? For those of us on the East coast, we endured some wind, rain, and hurricane Hermine.

Good thing I've got soap for all the rain.

Lotusbtr Body Care is an Etsy shop run by Tanissa in Detroit, Michigan. Detroit is known for being the motor city, but did you know it's home to the only floating post office in the United States? The J.W. Westcott is a full-fledged post office and earned the world’s first floating zip code, 48222. Check it out in action below!

Back to Lotusbtr... Tanissa has always had a passion for helping others. With her 'Body Care for a Cause' movement, each purchase in her shop will contribute 20% to the Soul Project, book scholarships for inner city youth. With your help, we can change our communities!

Do you like cider? Pictured below is the Motor City Cider soap, made with locally-brewed hard cider. Yes, hard cider. Alcohol adds luxurious foaming properties, and foaming is obviously good for soap, and it also help break down bacteria in the skin.

To enhance the skin healing properties of the cider soap, raw organic honey is added. I love raw honey products, and it's a natural humectant. What's a humectant? It absorbs moisture from the air, so in this case honey helps retain moisture in your skin. You'll also see a little stripe of activated charcoal in each bar.

And then we have the Sweet Three Peat soap, an unscented handmade soap made with coconut milk and a triple butter, gentle and moisturizing. Cocoa, shea, and avocado butters come together to create a powerful team.

Where does the "sweet" part come in? Sweet potato puree is added, and you might be interested to know that sweet potatoes are a good source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene). They're also a good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid, and vitamin B6.

Explore the shop for handmade goodies for your skin. Tanissa hopes you enjoy her soaps as much as she loved making them!
