At a Loss for Words

So I made a new soap recently. Special request from a repeat customer – it’s a lovely salt bar for people who are sensitive. It has no scent and no color, but I did add a touch of silk and some coconut milk. The lather is creamy and fluffy, and the bar itself is pure white – looks like whipped cream. I’m quite pleased!Except that I can’t think of a name!

Purity – no, a fellow soaper has a bar by that name. She’s a friend of mine, too.

Simply Soap – taken, trademarked, and another person I’m on good terms with.

Snow Angel – well, that implies cold, which makes a lot of people expect minty, and this isn’t minty. It isn’t anything.

Ether – sounded good until I wrote it down, now looks stupid. Besides, it makes me think of chloroform.

Seafoam? Sounds like it ought to be green.

Wahine – Hawaiian for young girl or maiden. Hubby says it sounds like “whiny” and is too obscure.

Angel – Lush makes a bar called Angels on Bare Skin. So, nope.

Mist – ha ha, gorillas in shower caps… crap, I ruined that one.

Orphan – I’m just grasping at straws, here.

I have beat my head against my desk all afternoon, so I’m throwing this one out to you guys. I have about another week before I need to have these all labeled for shipping. Either post to my thread on Etsy, send me an e-mail, or comment here on the blog with your ideas. I’ll pick the winner – just based on my own personal preferences. If you win, I’ll send you a free bar of the nameless wonder. Ready?

Go!

How about "plain perfection" or "plain and simple"? Might be too long.

This soap reminds me of fluffy white snow that has just fallen and is still "pure". How about NEIGE which means snow in French. I hope you like it!!

How about "Haven"? It might prove to be just that for people who are looking for a sensitive soap!

It reminds me of a beautiful, fluffy white cloud. Cumulus Cloud! :)

Lamb is nice, but it could be confused with Gwen Stefani's scent

White - why not?

I like Lisa's suggestion of Neige. It's very pretty, and simple!

Snowdrift - does that sound as icy? The bar looks like a snowdrift with the pretty swirls on top.

Sandbar

White Sands

Snow White - she brings to mind innocence

I don't think you realize you named it. Wonder! It is the nameless wonder after all. I don't suppose you can call it cool whip.

I like "Wonder" too.

How about "Driven"? As in pure as the driven snow? Or maybe "Driven Snow".
