Borderland Cats | Artisan Soap

Regular price $7.95 Sale

Shea & Cocoa Butter  

Known as tigres norteños along the Arizona-Sonora border, the jaguar has a long history in Mayan mythology and sadly, a short history as a native cat.

This beautiful animal has been hunted, treed and terrorized for years and now only a few remain, making their way between borders to remote watering holes.   

But those of us who dream of these powerful animals with "eyes of fire" making a comeback and once again ranging the borderlands is tantalizing. It speaks to both primal fears and childhood dreams.  

This soap may just feature a domestic cat touching the stars, but it's a cat that reminds us of deep chuffing noises in heavy brush and eerie calls echoing through the dark desert nights. 

Our selected scent for the soap is comprised of an incredible blend of delicate lavender, earthy rosemary, hints of lemon and lime, and spicy notes of juniper berry to represent the open Arizona desert ranges and Sonoran shadowlands.  

The moon glows in the dark! Simply allow the soap contact with natural light for a few minutes and it will glow for hours to make bathtime fun! 

Sunflower, olive and coconut oils, along with rich cocoa and shea butters will keep your skin hydrated and soft throughout the dry arid days.
