Duane and Nancy, from Nature’s Best Soaps, live in Idaho. They are famous for their novelty Potato Soap called Spud Soap and, of course, the unique idea is selling all over Idaho. I even picked up a spud bar at the Boise airport a few years ago. It was thrilling to randomly see their soap in the airport and I’ll admit to a bit of maternal pride when I bought the soap.
The infamous and custom spud molds.Fresh out of the mold. The final products- aren’t they “spud-tacular”? Duane and Nancy’s number one selling Spud Soap is made with real potato that is soothing to the skin, molded into the shape of a potato and has actual “eyes”.
A note from Duane and Nancy:“After finally tweaking our recipe by reducing some of the Crisco and replacing it with the Palm Kernel Oil, we have achieved a soap that pops out of the mold with very little cleanup needed. We also have increased the temperatures from 120 to 140 degrees. That has helped to stabilize the purple color in our huckleberry spud soaps. We appreciate the time everyone took to give us suggestions and opinions as to what to try.”

OMG, those make me laugh so much! 😀 😀 😀 What a great product…
thanks! Fragrance is a whole world on it’s own. I have toyed with renaming everything, but then, who would really know what i am talking about when i barely know myself?
No problem, katw0man. You are more than welcome to use our fragrance descriptions as long as you are purchasing your fragrances from Bramble Berry!
Thank you so much for asking us! I can really tell you appreciate the hard work we’ve put into our descriptions =)
I don’t know how you make time for all you do, but I know you are a busy lady. I have been working really hard on my fragrance listing. It is not perfect but at least is is getting more current.
Can I have your permission to use your verbage on your fragrances? rather, that was not accurate. I used your verbages already and hope I was not amiss. This is because 1)you took considerable time framing your descriptions and I could not do better, and 2) i have very little understanding of tops,middles,drydowns,and this is too technical for me to try on my own, and lastly 3) your descriptions rock and make me wanna buy everything in stock so…..
just let me know.

Sudsing with a potatoe? That’s actually pretty neat.
