Saipua via Brooklyn

13 12 2010

It was love at first sight when Saipua soaps and new candles arrived at our shop.  We are addicted to these amazing handmade soaps from Brooklyn.  Evangelina always find us fantastic goodies.  We are very lucky to have their new soy wax candles as well.

Saipua has been making olive oil based soap since 1999.  They are a small family owned business located in Brooklyn.  Their soaps are carefully crafted in small batches using food-grade vegetable oils, butters, herbs and extracts. Each bar is hand cut, air dried and cured in their workshop.  The word Saipua is derived from the Finnish word for soap.

Winter citrus is a blend of sweet orange, neroli, lavender and fir needle. Orange peel adds the slightest texture.

Basil soap is scented with straight Hungarian pressed basil and sweetened with a bit of lime oil. The scent is deeply herbal; a bit on the masculine side.

Clary Sage is strangely intoxicating; the scent is bright but earthy with base notes of patchouli and the last minute addition of dill weed.

This rosemary-mint hand soap was designed for gardeners. The cornmeal is tough on dirt, while the addition of shea butter replenishes moisture in dry hands.

Hand soap for the cook or gardener, this bar is made with brewed coffee, coffee grounds and peppermint essential oil.

A simple, traditional combination.

Mango butter, silk protein, sweet almond oil and shea butter make for an intensely rich soap that produces a creamy fine lather.

100% soy wax candle with a 60 hour burn time. The wisteria & lilac is intensely floral and leaves a sweet heady aura in the room after burning.

The citrus and pepper is bright with sweet orange with an base note of hot chilies. Fantastic kitchen candle.

The Cedarmoss is deeply earthy, reminiscent of fresh moss and soil.

The cedar wood is a green, slightly sweet scent.

Wishing you a sweet Monday.
