Beer soaps are a lather lovers delight and our Oatmeal Black Lager does not disappoint. The sugars in the beer give a boost to the lather in any handmade soap. Great suds is not the only reason for adding beer to a soap recipe. Adding beer also adds to the moisturizing qualities of a bar of soap because of vitamin B and other essential vitamins it contains.
Hops, an ingredient in beer, contains skin softening amino acids which can soothe irritated and inflamed skin. The brewer’s yeast in beer acts as an antibacterial agent, great for combating acne and maintaining balanced oil levels in your skin.
With all the choices in beer on the market, we decided to use a local brewing company as the source of our beer. Some other brands may be more well known around the country, but we support local when we can. Shiner beer has been produced in Shiner Texas since 1909 by the Spoetzl Brewing Company. We chose to use their Black Lager for this bar of soap.
We complement this beer soap with a delightful fragrance good enough to eat!! This scent has Creamy Oatmeal, Orange Peel, Butterscotch, Farm-fresh Milk, Nutty Almond and Rich Vanilla. People ask if it smells like beer and the answer is no. The beer does enhances and adds to the fragrance notes.
Though first thought is this soap would be great for the men in your life.. don’t be surprised if the women in your life love it too. It is purely decadent in the shower with its great scent and abundant suds.
