Why our soaps? We don’t make a wide of variety of bath soaps, but the medley we do make is powerful, effective, and great to add to your skin care regime. When creating a product, we want it to be functional, practical, and purposeful. Ingredients are important to us and there is quite a bit of time spent in researching and formulating our products. Our bath soaps were created to help detox, cleanse, and promote overall healthy skin. Our nature medley of soaps was designed with care using only what nature herself, provides.
Read on to discover the main ingredients we have chosen for our Nature Medley soaps and the benefits each of these ingredients provide.
Coconut Oil: The fatty acids found in coconut oil, give it unique cleansing properties. It provides a great lather to the soap and has moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial (great for acne prone skin), antioxidant, and restoring properties. It’s an overall great addition to soap that will leave you feeling satisfied and clean!
Olive Oil: We choose to use extra virgin olive oil in our soap because it retains its state of natural antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins. Extra virgin olive oil contains vitamin E which is known for nourishing, cleansing, moisturizing, and hydrating skin of all ages and all skin types.
Shea Butter: Shea butter is full of vitamin A and E which promotes healthy skin. It has great moisturizing properties helping skin to feel soft and hydrated. Shea butter also contains cinnamic acid which has anti-inflammatory properties and aides in soothing skin irritations. Cinnamic acid also helps to fight bacteria and germs which makes it a great addition to soap!
Activated Charcoal: Activated charcoal has great absorbing properties which is why it is great for oily skin and acne prone skin. Activated charcoal draws out bacteria, chemicals, and dirt from deep within your pores to the surface of your skin. This is why it is a better choice to clean with than conventional face and body cleansers. It is also provides a nice, light exfoliation to your skin. When skin is exfoliated, it allows all the benefits of moisturizers to be effectively absorbed. Exfoliating the entire body leaves your skin fresh, smooth, and healthy.
Bentonite Clay: Did you know bentonite clay is actually derived from volcanic ash!? One of the great things about this ingredient in our soap is that it does more than just eliminate and detox impurities. It also infuses skin with minerals including calcium, potassium, and magnesium. Bentonite is great for skin that is easily irritated or affected by skin conditions such as Eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis.
Rhassoul Clay: This clay, also packed with minerals and vitamins for the skin, also has hydrating elements. Skin will feel softened from the silica content, and incredibly smooth because the pores have been deep-cleansed. Skin that is hydrated is balanced, brighter, and glows with health. Nourishing, hydrating, detoxifying, and moisturizing are all good reasons for us!
Our bar soaps were created, not just with the overall idea of getting clean, but with the purpose of treating your skin with health benefits that will make you feel good. Health is wealth and nature is just what your skin ordered.
