    Help me out guys.

    Hey Guys, i think you have all heard me talk about my health problems and how they prevent me from working a normal job. Well i have decided to take control of my life, and start my own business. So here is what i am doing, being unemployed with horrible credit, getting funding around to start a small business is hard to say the least, i have found a site called Chip in, where you can put up a project, and people can donate to help you fund it.

    So here is my project.

    http://vancessoaps.chipin.com/start-...-soap-business

    Since I know your a great group of guys, Will make you the better offer than i made on face book, Since I am trying to raise the start up funds for a small business, Since i know that no one likes giving away their hard earned money, i am going to offer this as an incentive, For anyone who chips in 20 dollars, i will mail you 5 bars of Custom made Hand Crafted soap as a thank you for chipping in! 40 ill send you 10 bars, 60 ill send you 15 bars and so on, every 20 more gets you another 5 bars.This is Luxury quality soap, it is not like cheap made commercial soap at all! If you do decide to chip in, just Email me your name, shipping address, and how much you chipped in at Vancehanna@yahoo.com, and as soon as the soap is ready i will ship it out to you.


    Also take into consideration that the soap does require a 30 day aging period to ensure it is 100% safe to use, and each batch will be tested for pH and tested on my own skin BEFORE i ship it to anyone. So if it takes some time for your soap to arrive, please be patient, it is for quality control purposes.

    I am also working on a formulation for Shave soap, and have a supply company sending me samples of jars.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this, and if you do choose to chip in thank you so very much in advance!

    that will take you to the Chip In site, there will be a box come up on the right hand side with a button under it that says "Chip In" Click that, and follow the prompts to enter your chip in amount, credit card info, etc, its through pay pal so its secure.

    I don't get any boxes popping up.
    All I see is the progress box, nothing more.

    Well Mike as of now, 99% of the soaps i am making are Unscented, so no girly perfumery smell. I can do scented soaps, But due to zero funds right now, i cant order Essential or Fragrance Oils(they are all natural and most are plant based and yes there are some manly types lol) But the Bars I am sending out for the donations will be Unscented(unless we work out some sort of deal for fragrance) Hell I can make you Hop Aroma Oil Scented soap(that would be a custom order soap lol)

    Shave soap is also one that is in formulation, I have a good solid recipe to build off of for it, but again with lack of funds so i cant yet order the secret ingredient(dont worry its all natural and hypoallergenic lol) Basically is it a very Rich lathering Lubricating soap that helps the razor slide easily.

    I am working them up in their own glass mug, all you would need is your razor and a shave Brush. Those however will be a bit more expensive only because the cups hold around 1lb of soap so basically the same amount of soap in 3 bars!

    Yes Guys you heard me right i can make soap that smells like HOPS!

    http://www.hoptech.com/collections/h...tracts/hop-oil

    Any of the ones that say "Pure Hop Oil" I can use to make soap, 2 oz would be enough to do a 2lb batch, which using Hop Oil should be a light hop scent.

    Oh and to anyone considering ordering a custom batch, Much like a great beer, Great soap needs 30 days time to cure and age, This ensures that you get a hard bar(depending on oil choice) that lasts, it also ensures that the pH has had time to fully drop to soap range which is between 8.5 and 10. So if you donate or place an order, dont freak out thinking wow its taking forever to get my soap i think he robbed me, no its that the soap is till again and will be mailed as soon as it is fully cured!

    My next goal is to scrap together enough to get one of these and a roll of labels to go with it.

    I officially have a store locally that will carry my soap as soon as it is ready! So pretty stoked about that!
