The Soliloquy in Blue is a ‘cold’ smelling soap, but not menthol – instead, a lime and eucalyptus bouquet with a touch of menthol. This soap creation contains various natural antiseptics and wound healing, and is appropriate for bathing and hand use.
Valloloko an artisan German soap making firm in the grand Euro tradition of cold-only processing. This is a small production company that keeps quality as job#1. Surfactants, mineral oils, paraffin waxes, and any other ‘bad’ cosmetics “necessities” are eschewed here. This does raise cost, of course, and the big high-end brands like to use them. But you get what you pay for in soap.
Each batch of Valloloko soap’s supremely tested by hyper-anal German master blenders that are part metrologist (hey, measuring stuff is fun), part parfumer. All labor is 100% by hand. Valloloko produces their own raw materials via cold press of raw oil seeds wherever possible! This provides a quite fragrant aroma without using fragrance oil. Lastly, by being exclusively loyal to cold-saponification, Valloloko hard soaps take time to age and fit in with the TSS ethos about just how superior cold-stir soap really is…why aren’t American artisans doing this??
