Red bean and rice powders have been blended into cosmetics and luxury soaps for centuries, but this fun handmade soap is the first genuine Creole recipe. Blended with the squeaky clean fragrance of ya mama's laundry hanging out to dry. Red beans gently exfoliate and unclog pores while white rice soothes irritations and tightens your skin. The rich combination of vegetable based oils and cocoa butter produce a bubbly and moisturizing lather that will satisfy your skin Monday to Monday.
Here in New Orleans, Mondays have always traditionally been laundry day. Back in the days before modern washers & dryers, laundry was an ordeal that took all day! So NOLA ladies would put on a big pot of red beans & rice to slow cook all day while they did their laundry. Hence the reason why a fresh laundry scent and red beans & rice go hand in hand! This red beans & rice soap makes a great New Orleans gift idea!
