Mint Soap Box 2
Refreshing soap with the pungent fragrance of peppermint. Box of two soap bars.
Soaps produced by Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella are obtained through a particular process which starts in a kneading machine in which the soap is placed in the form of shavings and scented oils. All is amalgamated until it becomes a homogeneous paste. Afterwards the soap is left to season in a ventilated cabinet for about 1 month. This lets the soap mature dispelling excess moisture. At this point the soap is ready for packaging. Each soap bar, after being carefully checked, is wrapped by hand.
