Tomato Festival Soap ~ A Tribute to Summer and Farmers!
This is my latest soap adventure! It’s a celebration of summer and our local farmers-nature’s bounty and fresh sunshine! This soap will make its debut at our Tomato Festival at the Harrisonburg, VA Farmers Market Saturday, August 10, 9AM to 12PM.
My Tomato Festival Soap is a cleansing bar of soap swirled with tomato with a little Moroccan clay and parsley enhanced with a tad bit of French green clay. I purchased the tomatoes and parsley from my fellow vendors who grow sustainably, no pesticides and without chemical fertilizers. Most of all, I know these guys and gals and I’m helping support local families and not some CEO’s island paradise.
The soap also has premium ingredients like sustainable organic palm oil from Brazil, olive oil, organic palm kernel oil, colloidal oatmeal, jojoba oil and kaolin white clay. The scent is made from sweet orange, bergamot, ginger and coriander essential oils. It’s a lovely light citrus scent.
Now, I will have to say, our namesake, Magellan never had soap like this, but you can bet he was familiar with outdoor markets. It was the heart of a community then and making a comeback in today’s world. As vendors we get to know our customer’s wishes and they in turn, see the passion with which we produce our products. Try that at your local big box store!
So, for those of you that are lucky enough to purchase this bar: remember the summer, the farmer, the community and all the local enterprises near you!
