One of the best things you can do for your skin (other than to use a quality soap) is to exfoliate. It helps rid your skin of dead cells and promote the growth of new ones. Many of you have tried using Natural Exfoliants in your soap already. One of the most popular (and easy) exfoliants to use in your soap is loofah. (It's also often spelled luffa or loofa...but it's all the same plant.)
Loofahs can be used in either cold process or melt and pour soap. You can use it in slices, ground up, or whole. This project uses melt and pour soap base and a 12" piece of loofah in a 3" pvc pipe mold.
This is not one of my soaps I am hoping to make some though!!!!!but you're skin will be so soft and so wonderful I wanted to show this soap.
you can find a bar of soap like this on etsy .com or on madeitmyself.com or on Handmade Fuzion.com
