Cucumbers have long been used in skin care for their soothing, astringent properties. For this soap recipe we are going to use the whole cucumber – flesh, seeds, skin and all! Cucumbers are mostly water, so for this recipe, we will be substituting all the water with pureed whole cucumber. We will also add in plenty of super skin loving, antioxidant rich oils like olive & avocado oil. Rich, creamy shea butter and hard working coconut, palm, & castor oils will round out this awesome spa quality soap.
