We’re finally able to watch Season 3 of the Netflix Original series Orange Is the New Black, and thanks to Chivas Skin Care, we’ll have some soap to go with it.
Ever felt gross and itchy when watching OITNB? I have. No need to worry though, there’s a solution!
LA-based Chivas Skin Care has partnered with Lionsgate to create a limited-edition, artisanal bar soap collection based on Piper Chapman’s soap company in “Orange is the New Black” (OITNB). This product will be on shelves this spring to coincide with the Season 3 premiere of OITNB, set for June 12th.
In Season 1, Piper and her best friend Polly’s soap business named POPI (“poppy”) was short-lived due to Piper’s abrupt arrest, thus the finished product was never seen. While watching the show from her then Los Angeles home, Chivas Skin Care co-founder, Lauren Johanson, was inspired to pick up where the show left off and bring the fictional soap company to life.
“Watching Polly and Piper make soap in their kitchen brought back memories of how my Mom and I first got started ,” said Johanson. “So when I saw this similar story play out in in the show, I thought it would be fun to bring their story to life.”
POPI by Chivas Skin Care is available in four exclusive scents including: Cucumber & Mint, Grapefruit & Basil, Lavender & Sage and Vanilla & Verbena. The soaps are handmade in small batches utilizing high quality ingredients such as pure essential oils, natural colorants and fair trade shea butter.
The limited edition POPI by Chivas Skin Care collection is available at www.popisoap.com and retails for $12 each.
So after spending every waking hour on the couch, with a glass of wine stuck to my hand this weekend, I predict that by Sunday, I’ll need to use this soap. Can’t wait to watch, and can’t wait to take a bath! LOL
