    A homemade soap that says, “Spring is Sprung!”

    A DIY soap that’s as pretty as a May meadow  Every year, it’s the same story. When winter first arrives, we gush over each fresh snowflake, but by February, the frosty season starts to feel like it’s dragging on. Especially here, with our famous Québec winters that last half the year. So, as soon as a ray of sunshine breaks through the clouds, a tiny bud appears, or the mercury inches above zero, we at Coop Coco joyfully cry out, “Spring is Sprung!” It’s our little way of passing the time patiently until spring really comes. And this cold process soap recipe is our homage to these exclamations we let…

    Get All Dolled Up with a DIY blush!

That recipe, Chic Cheeks, was such a hit that we also received a lot of messages asking us to create a recipe for a loose powder blush too.

    Travel across Ochre Oceans with this beautiful DIY soap!

    This soap recipe will take you places! Deserts: those starkly stunning arid expanses stretching as far as the eye can see. There are so many different kinds of these natural wonders, but our favourites are the warm-toned, windswept mounds of dune fields. These Ochre Oceans are what inspired our new homemade soap recipe; its captivating pattern recalls the beauty of repeating sandy terrain.   Does the desert remind you of dryness too? Rest assured, this cold process soap recipe gently cleanses your skin without drying it out. That’s in large part thanks to the apricot kernel oil, used here as our superfatting oil, which makes this soap protective, emollient, and softening.…
