Terazzo – natural zero waste soap
Ever since the vision of this soap first came to our heads, we couldn’t wait to do it for the first time – we have been wondering if this concept would work out. We are not disappointed – Terrazzo is probably the most interesting (and certainly the most colourful) of all our soaps. By the way, it is also a zero waste product like no other – we have embedded scraps from the production of several other cubes you already know, thus creating a unique mosaic to which the soap owes its name. Unique, because each piece is a little bit different, and every subsequent soap will be slightly different from the previous one. For many of you Terrazzo brings associations with something sweet – and it’s hardly surprising – at first glance it can be mistaken for a piece of cheesecake with jelly, although you’d better not check the similarity on other fronts 😉
The bar is traditionally based on our favourite oils: coconut, shea butter and olive oil. Thanks to this, the soap is extremely pleasant to use – the skin is smoothed, soft and nourished afterwards. Castor oil, in turn, gives it a pleasant glide and a thick, stable foam. In addition, Terrazzo was lucky to get the best from other Starling soaps: Winter, Salty Lavender, Orange with Rosemary, Coal, Oaksnatcher and Mountaincrusher. So you will find red clay in it, which normalizes and stimulates microcirculation of the skin, and blue clay, which adds a touch of silkiness to the bar and has oxygenating and refreshing properties. Laurel oil from Oaksnatcher has a soothing and antiseptic effect, and activated carbon provides the soap with an antibacterial and cleansing effect. Scraps of soaps embedded in the bar also bring out their own aromas – but they are so delicate that they absolutely do not bite each other. Our nose tests have shown that everyone can feel there just what they personally like best.
In addition to its care properties, in our opinion, this soap simply looks beautifully and pleases the eye. And it perfectly matches current interior trends, so it will certainly decorate the bathroom 🙂

Our soaps are made by hand using the cold method. We don’t use machines and complicated algorithms – the whole process is pure craft. Each bar is therefore slightly different and doesn’t always look like the one in the picture. If you notice a slight white coating on the top edge of the soap – don’t worry – it’s just pure glycerine which precipitates during the saponification process.
