BirdProject Soap, Beau Ciel Bleu Edition
We hope that you love our Beau Ciel Bleu edition, which mean Beautiful Blue Skies in French. A beautiful sculpture for your home, a fantastic soap, and a meaningful gift which gives to many.
Each black, bird shaped soap contains a beautiful, blue ceramic bird, handmade from Louisiana Clay, which remains as a keepsake once the outer soap has washed away.
Through the daily act of washing, you will eventually free the clean, white, ceramic birds inside - potent symbols of restoration and recovery. The soap is shaped to be cradled in your hand and is a powerful representation of all creatures affected by the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Disaster.
The soaps are made with natural, locally sourced ingredients: biodiesel glycerin, fair trade olive oil, aloe, activated black charcoal, and a light cypress scent - reminiscent of Louisianan bayous. They are made by Emily Manger Davis of Sweet Olive Soaps, a third generation soapmaker from New Orleans.
10% of profits go to environmental cleanup and care for affected animals of the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Disaster. We are proud to have donated $23,250 thus far to Gulf Restoration Network & International Bird Rescue.
+ If in New Orleans, happy to arrange pickup at one of our shops & refund shipping!
+ More details about the soaps! They are all natural (they contain no shea butter or animal products - I've received many thank you's for that for those that are allergic) and are so wonderful for your skin. The lovely soap is great for all skin types and is not drying for daily use. The heavenly Rigaud Cypress scent has a rich history which began in Paris in 1850 and is delightful for both women and men.
~ To prolong the life of handmade soap please keep in a soap dish and allow to dry between uses. Store in a cool and dry place until ready for use.
