In addition to carrying a line of its own carefully handcrafted soaps and other products, The Ponte Vedra Soap Shoppe provides high-quality supplies for soap makers and aromatherapists who want to create their own face scrubbers at home. With today’s deal, smart saponifiers can cook up a batch of 20 to 24 soap bars using Ponte Vedra’s Melt and Pour Glycerin Soap Kit ($39). Unlike the synthetic detergent concoctions of many commercial soap bars, this soap contains moisture-attracting glycerin, natural vegetable oils, and fine fragrances that combine to create a smooth, soft lather machine. The kid-friendly kit comes with 4 pounds of glycerin soap base (half white and half clear), molds, water-based liquid soap colorants (1 ounce each of red, blue, and gold-bar-impersonating yellow), instructions, and 2 ounces of your choice from nearly 100 fragrance-oil options, including almond, cinnamon, bananaroma, sweet grass, and more.
