Why Add Wine To Your Soap?

Alyson Swihart Brewing Soap

I fell in love with red wine while camping in the Great Basin.  I was an archaeologist's intern (a story for a later time) this particular summer. One of the crew members had brought a case of Bordeaux Wine. Our day looked something like this: Wake-up at 5am, be in the field from 6am- 4pm, clean-up, make dinner and relax for the evening. Luckily for us, the people on our team preferred beer to wine, so we got to enjoy it all ourselves.  I had just turned 21 and had no idea what I was drinking. During that summer, I learned a great deal about wine and life. Fast forward to the present, I can gladly say that a wine from the Bordeaux Region of France will definitely bring back those fine memories.

I wanted to bring those memories to our soaps.  So, I created our Merlot Wine Soap in that image... think sandalwood meets vanilla.  Besides inspiration, wine adds other great properties to soap including antioxidants from the grapes as well as a lather that won't quit.   

So don't just bring a glass of vino into the tube with you, bring a whole bar... of soap that is!
