Raspberries don't produce a useful essential oil, but through the wonders of science, scent chemists (called "Perfumiers") are able to combine various naturally occurring scent compounds to produce scents that mimic those of some of our favorite fruits. The fragrance oil used to scent this soap contains nothing but natural ingredients! We find that fascinating! What's more, this handmade soap is wonderfully bubbly, mild and moisturizing, great for all skin types, and equally good as a facial soap, hand soap, or body soap. All natural ingredients at their finest!
