Ale

Ale has ingredients in it that are very beneficial to your skin and hair. Beer has hops which are known to soothe irritated skin, and contains skin softening amino acids as well.

Coffee Grounds

Coffee Grounds contain powerful anti-oxidant agents, protecting the skin against free radicals and reducing the risk of skin cancer. It tightens pores and removes dead skin cells, making the skin looking younger. Coffee also displays anti-wrinkle properties.

Cedarwood essential oil

Cedarwood essential oil is antiseborrhoeic (helps prevent a skin disorder by regulating sebum production and treating infection), antiseptic (heal wounds and defend against toxins), antispasmodic (relieving spasms), astringent (tightens and tones skin), expectorant (helps with symptoms of coughs and colds), insecticidal (insect repellent), sedative (relaxing and calming, aids with anxiety, and calms upset, inflamed skin), and fungicidal substance (helps prevent and cure fungal infection). Also helps with acne and oily skin.

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.
