  1. Mmm looking forward to trying this! Does it keep or do you need to use straight away? Or I was thinking about gifting if it will last awhile?

    • Hi Amy. This scrub is more for using up reasonably quickly, within a week, or two, if refrigerated. If you were going to give it as a gift, it would be best to add a preservative. You could use a commercial blend such as optiphen, which is a paraben-free preservative that’s freely available over the internet. It’s also scent free, so it won’t destroy the delicious coffee/vanilla fragrance. Alternatively, you can add natural preservatives, such as Vitamin E, grapeseed extract, or ascorbic acid, etc, but these are not broad spectrum preservatives, and with the introduction of water constantly (putting your hands in the tub is one way to introduce water – and bacterial and fungi need water to grow), shelf life will still be reduced. You can read a bit more about preservatives, including natural ones, over at Soap Craft.
