Cucumber

Cucumber is highly anti-ageing with loads of antioxidants. It can help reduce wrinkles and puffiness, specifically around the eyes. The most important skin benefit of cucumber is that it helps in revitalizing and tightening the skin. It can give you a youthful and glowing look.

Avocado oil

Avocado Oil enhances the skin’s ability to generate collagen, which keeps your skin firm, smooth and rejuvenated, and shields the skins against age-related wrinkles, fine lines and other aging signs. It soothes dry, itchy skin as it is easily absorbed. Avocado oil can be used as a natural treatment for a multiplicity of skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, and hastens the healing of small wounds.

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

Bergamot essential oil

Bergamot essential oil is an antidepressant & stimulant, antibiotic & disinfectant, analgesic (reduces pain), relaxant & sedative (calming), cicatrisant (reduces the look of scars and other skin marks, and evens skin tone), deodorant, relaxes muscles, promotes fast healing, helps eczema, and tones the skin.

Tea tree Essential Oil

Tea tree Essential Oil has powerful antibacterial & antiseptic properties, helping to heal bacterial infections, combat acne, and heal wounds. It reduces scarring, helps flush toxins, and cleans out pores.

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.
