Testing Method:

We will test our project by having three different people use our soaps over a period of three days. At the beginning and end of each day, the test subjects will have to fill out a survey aobut the condition of their skin. On the first day, they will use our unscented soap. The second day we will ahve them use our soap with vanilla and peanut butter scent, and on the third and final day the subjects will use our soap with vanilla scent.

Results:

We found that the vanilla soap did not leave the soap as dry as the other soaps.

What we would do differently:
For our project, we could use different scents and see if different scents have different effects on the skin than the ones we chose to use.
