Exfoliating Coffee Soap

I did a distilled water pour over with some finely ground beans in the place of  plain distilled water for this one. Coffee does not smell pleasant when mixed with sodium hydroxide!

The espresso grounds were from the pour over, I then soaked and dried them out for a few hours before I started soaping. If you use fresh grounds it is going to discolor your soap much more.

With all of the coffee I added a bit of titanium dioxide so it wouldn’t come out too dark.

I’ve done another pencil line here for the divide and further tried to whiten the top with so pearly white mica. It is also the first time I am adding something to the top, I find that sort of thing to be annoying more often than not but I thought I’d give it a try.

This was made by request and since none of that coffee is going to give scent to this soap I used Leather and Sandalwood scents.
