LSF Soap Bar Thunder Ann Beer (Lemongrass Basil)
About: Thunder Ann Beer Soap is handmade at Little Seed Farm using Thunder Ann American Pale Ale from Jackalope Brewery and raw goat's milk from LSF's dairy herd. The beer itself is brewed to highlight beautiful citrusy American hops. Thunder Ann comes off almost tropical; people will find notes of apricot and mango in addition to the citrus bouquet. To enhance these characteristics, LSF adds organic lemongrass and basil essential oils. You may notice this soap has leaves in it. These aren't just any leaves, they are actually the flowers of the magnificent hop plant, which are used during the brewing process to give aroma and bitterness to the very beers you drink. LSF adds a sprinkle of ground hop leaves to each soap bar, a friendly reminder of where your beer (and your soap!) comes from to gently polish skin. What's up With the Name? Thunder Ann inherits its moniker from Davy Crockett's fictional wife, Sally Ann Thunder Ann Whirlwind Crockett. A women not to be reckoned with, and neither is this soap! Jackalope Brewery is named after a mythical creature, and so are it's brews!
Ingredients Benefits: Raw Goat's Milk- Milked fresh daily from LSF's sustainably raised micro herd! Goats spend their days in the sun and fresh air on Little Seed's pastures. They happily chomp on native grasses, herbs, and forages and give their thanks in the superior quality of milk they provide daily. Goat's milk is gentle, nourishing, and full of moisturizing butterfat that soothes dry or irritated skin. Because of its unique structure, in particular its short protein strands, the abundance of natural minerals and vitamins in our goat's milk is easily absorbed into your skin, helping to moisturize, protect, and heal. Thunder Ann Beer- Brewed locally by the legendary brewmasters at Jackalope Brewery in Nashville. Beer is rich in amino acids, minerals and vitamins. Most notably, beer contains B5 - pantothenic acid, which improves texture and luster of both skin and hair. Olive Oil (certified organic and cold pressed)- This oil has been used in skincare and health for centuries and its rich history isn't just a fluke. Olive Oil is full of antioxidants (such as vitamins A and E) that help neutralize free radicals that cause skin damage. The hydrophilic properties of these antioxidants help to form a protective barrier, trapping moisture on your skin and allowing for longer hydration. We use cold pressed, certified organic oils to ensure that only the good stuff comes through in our soap. Coconut Oil (certified organic)- Helps strengthen underlying tissues and removes excessive dead cells on the skin's surface, keeping skin soft.

Use: To reap the maximum moisturizing benefits from your Farmstead Milk Soap, after lathering only rinse until the suds have disappeared. This leaves a silky layer of milky goodness to protect and heal your skin.
Tips: All of LSF's Jackalope Beer soaps are great for shaving and can even be used as shampoo! Beer contributes to an aggressive lather, while goat's milk adds moisturizing characteristics that will leave you and your hair silky smooth. For ethical and environmental reasons, Little Seed Farm doesn't use palm oil (a hardening oil). As a result, their bars will soften if left in a pool of water. To help keep your bar at it's best (and get more for your money!), please keep it in a draining soap dish away from direct streams of water.
