Red beans and rice powders have been blended into cosmetics and luxury soaps for centuries, but this fun handmade soap is the first genuine Creole recipe. And it’s blended with the squeaky-clean fragrance of ya mama’s laundry hanging out to dry.
Feed your skin! Red beans gently exfoliate and unclog pores while white rice soothes irritations and tightens your skin. The rich combination of vegetable-based oils and cocoa butter produce a bubbly moisturizing lather that will satisfy your skin Monday to Monday.
Here in New Orleans, Mondays have always traditionally been laundry day. Back in the days before modern washers and dryers, laundry was an ordeal that took all day, so NOLA ladies would put on a big pot of red beans and rice to slow cook all day while they did their laundry. Hence the reason why a fresh laundry scent and red beans and rice go hand in hand!
Red Beans & Rice soap makes a great New Orleans gift idea for guys and girls.
