The Soap Tribune, Issue #178--give the gift of suds
February 09, 2023

Bar Soap

Bar soap makes an excellent gift for a few reasons.

1. Good bar soap is very pleasant to use. 2. Sudsy bar soap is effective at killing germs. 3. Long lasting bar soap is cost effective. 4. Natural bar soap kills germs, leaves your skin soft, and removes excess dirt and grime all at the same time. 5. When a bar of soap has all of these qualities, your gift keeps giving and you are thought of with a smile over and over again.

Industry news

We did not win the Pitch Slam expo booth, but we have been entered into a private data base for international investors. I'm ok with that.

In the meantime, we had a nice meeting with some manufacturers to see if anyone wants to step into the future of liquid soap and join us on our eco friendly journey of liquid soap delivery.

If you know anyone in a related industry who may be interested, please forward them this e mail. Thanks!!


Live Kitchen Series

Did you know that celery is an herb??

I will be starting celery, celeriac, and cabbage this weekend, for the garden. I have 2 kinds of celery; pink and a leafy variety called Ventura.

The cauliflower and carrot micro greens are ready to clip. I started a new bath of micro greens, this time it's bristle sprouts. My onions have sent up shoots, despite my cats trying to dig them up during the below zero cold snap.

The comment section has been added to the Live Kitchen webpage, in case you'd like to ask a related question or share photos of your sprout and micro greens garden.

When your comment goes live you will receive a 25% off coupon.


Olive Oil Shampoo Bar technique

I have been using what I think is the best long hair conditioner for over a year now, and am still pleased with the results.

I have done one Moroccan Rhassoul red clay hair "wash" in between Olive Oil Shampoo Bar washings.. The results are great. My hair has a bit more volume and even more shine.

I will likely do this clay wash 1-2 times a year.

Coupons are always available for you

You can get a 25% off coupon when you write a review for a product you've purchased. The review e mail should arrive 2 weeks after your purchase. Check your e mail for the link.

All of the review, add your story, and comment submission coupons are different, so you can collect quite a few of them. They do not have expiration dates and you will receive a coupon with each of the story posts.


Since shipping is out of our hands, I have adjusted our free shipping offer to keep up with the changing times.

Because you are Soap Tribune Subscribers, you have a free shipping coupon for orders of $75.00 or more.

Simply copy and paste the coupon code in the shopping cart. This is the code "freeshippingtribune"

I apologize for this extra step in the checkout process.
