Dandelion flowers are high in antioxidants, which are helpful with anti-ageing and detoxifying. They can help relieve pain, cramps, and depression. They are a very rich source of beta-carotene which we convert into vitamin A, and is also high in vitamin C, fibre, potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and phosphorus.

Dandelion roots help rid the skin of bad bacteria, and helps to balance the hormones which can cause issues with sebum production and lead to issues such as acne. It is detoxifying, cleansing, and rich in vitamins & minerals.

Here’s a great website to check out for more info on Dandelions and their benefits.

Grapeseed Oil is a light, easily absorbed oil that contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, both of which are great for fighting & healing acne & aging. The oil also contains linoleic acid, which is great for promoting skin health. It helps to tighten skin & moisturize – even the most sensitive of skin.

Ricebran Oil is rich in vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants. Rich in Vitamin E and fatty acids, rice bran oil is able to deeply penetrate into skin’s layers, nourishing it from within, making your skin soft. It improves skin’s elasticity, making it appear more youthful and plump, hydrates the skin and helps it to retain moisture, boosts skin’s natural regeneration process, doesn’t clog pores, and is an anti-inflammatory, soothing skin issues. It improves overall complexion and helps to even out the skin tone, helps to reduce & prevent the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and helps protect from harmful substances in your daily life (pollution, etc).

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

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba Oil is that it is packed with almost all of the vitamins and minerals essentially needed for healthy hair and skin, namely, vitamin E, B-complex, copper, zinc, selenium, iodine, and chromium. It normally does not have any harmful impact and can be used by even those who are having sensitive skin without worrying for any allergic reaction.

Jojoba oil has anti-microbial properties and contains iodine that prevent harmful bacteria growth, which otherwise would cause breakouts of acne.

It also lessons the appearance of wrinkles & fine lines.

The powerful antioxidants contained in the jojoba oil help in regenerating the skin cells.

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

Vitamin E Oil

Vitamin E prevents water loss from the skin, and helps it to retain its natural moisture. Thus, it makes dull, dry skin look healthy and well-moisturised. If it is used for the purpose of deep pore cleansing of dry skin on a regular basis, it restores the normal oil balance of the skin.

The Naked Chemist says that macadamia oil should be the most praised beautifying oil of all. It has a wonderful affinity with the skin, both topically and internally and is incredibly rich in essential fatty acids. It has a non greasy feel on the skin, which gives the oil a nice workable film, its Palmitoleic and Oleic Acid profile, makes it the perfect choice for a mature or dry skin, and its phytosterols are protective, aiding in skin recovery, working like cortisone on the skin helping to reduce itchiness and inflammation. The Linoleic Fatty Acid content of macadamia oil makes it great for a skin that has difficulty retaining moisture.

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.
