River Bar Soaps

Here Comes the Sun, doo doo doo doo, Here Comes the Sun . . .

Here Comes the Sun — such a happy Beatles song.  I wonder how many times it’s made me smile over the years?  Well, as promised yesterday, here are River Bar Soaps’ Sunscreen Bars.  I poured some into our normal “tin-shaped” bars and others into small twist-up containers.  The twist-up containers should be handy to toss into a beachbag or backpack. I’m waiting for an answer from a labeling expert about whether we can actually call these “sunscreen” or whether there is some prohibition against doing so.  As a soap and body products maker, you must be careful about making any claims about your product.  I’m not sure yet whether calling this “sunscreen” constitutes making a claim to its effectiveness or not. So, we’ll wait to finish labeling until we have a definitive answer on that question.

Last night as I was all trussed up in a respirator (use one when handling zinc oxide powder!) getting ready to mix the zinc oxide into the melted oils and butters, my phone rang and, though I couldn’t answer it, I could see that it was a friend I play Irish music with.  YIKES!!  I was so engrossed in making sunscreen bars that I completely forgot music practice last night!  I returned the call after I finished cleaning up and apologized profusely, and I think they’ll let me come back next week. Sure hope so!
