Rosehip Infusion

The antioxidants found in rosehips combat free radicals that cause sun damage. Vitamin A combined with rosehips’ essential fatty acids can help improve skin tone, texture and pigmentation. It is highly anti-aging due to the antioxidants and its ability to penetrate into deeper layers of skin. High levels of vitamin C antioxidants stimulate collagen production, and helps reduce fine lines & wrinkles. The essential fatty acids in rose hip seed oil can help reduce scarring and promote skin regeneration, and improve skin flexibility and permeability.

Lavender infusion can help with lowering anxiety & stress, as well as issues sleeping. It helps reduce inflammation, dry skin, eczema, and acne. It promotes quick healing on small wounds & blemishes, and fights infection. It is a great all-over health-promoting skin tonic.

Calendula

Calendula (the Marigold flower) can treat and disinfect minor wounds. The antibacterial and immunostimulant properties of the plant make it extremely useful in treating slow-healing cuts and cuts in people who have compromised immune systems. The herb stimulates the production of collagen at wound sites and minimizes scarring. It is also known to brighten skin and protect from blemishes.

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.

Aloe vera

Aloe vera is traditionally used to help soothe angry skin – burns, wounds, and sunburn. It also helps calm dry, flaky skin, eczema, psoriasis, and it’s good for acne. It’s very moisturizing, fights ageing, and reduces the look of stretch marks. For more detailed information, read this: The Benefits of Using Aloe Vera for Skin Care and More

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

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender essential oil is an excellent tonic to help relieve stress, anxiety, and nervous conditions. It is often recommended as a sleep-aid, as an alternative to insomnia treatment. It helps with headaches & depression, relieve pain, disinfects the skin, encourages blood circulation, & aids with respiratory issues.

 

Geranium Essential Oil

Geranium Essential Oil tightens and tones the skin, giving it a more youthful look while reducing fine lines, it also speeds up the healing process of small wounds and other skin issues. Geranium oil helps scars and other spots on the skin to fade and vanish. It facilitates blood circulation just below the surface of skin and also helps promote a uniform distribution of melanin. It promotes cell health, encourages the recycling of dead cells, and the regeneration of new cells.

Geranium Oil has a very pleasant and uplifting aroma, comparable to a combination of floral fragrances and mint. Surely you can imagine what an effective deodorant it would make. Its effects also last for a long time and it is not harsh on the skin. Furthermore, owing to its property as a mild antibacterial substance, it aids in eliminating body odour.

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.
