Organic Basil

Organic basil from Italian Market is high in antioxidants which help with anti-aging & help relieve stress. Basil helps with scars & marks, fights & prevents acne, and gives skin a younger, fresher appearance, improving skin tone. It adds a glow to the skin & tightens pores.

Ground Pumice Stone

Fine ground pumice stone exfoliates the skin, removing excess dirt & dead skin cells more thoroughly & easier than soap alone. This gives you cleaner, fresher, softer, smoother skin.

Organic Unrefined Shea Butter

Organic Unrefined Shea Butter “is a skin superfood that comes from the seeds of the fruit of the Shea (Karite) tree and that is naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F. It offers UV protection (it is SPF ~6) and provides the skin with essential fatty acids and the nutrients necessary for collagen production. Shea butter has been used in Africa and other countries for years to improve skin and hair.” Read More: 21 Shea Butter Benefits and Uses

What Does "Saponified" Mean?

What Does “Saponified” Mean?

Saponification is the chemical reaction used in the soap making process. When the oils and fats are combined with lye (a strong alkali) they are called saponified. At the end of the process the lye is all gone, and you are left with just soap. To learn more about this, have a look at my blog post on the subject.

 

About “Filler” Oils

About “Filler” Oils

Cheaper oils are often used as a “filler” but I don’t use them because they don’t add much nutrient value to the soap.

I don’t use palm oil in any of my products, since its production is harmful to the environment, destroying critical habitat for many endangered species, as well as being linked with the eviction of forest-dwelling peoples. Find out more here.

I only use high quality oils and butters that are filled with beneficial nutrients for the skin. Learn more about this on my blog.
