Organic Unscented Baby Soap
Organic unscented soap filled with amazing ingredients to gently clean baby’s sensitive skin. Local coconut milk kefir adds nutrients and good bacteria which is important for keeping dry skin conditions away, while raw local honey moisturizes and fights bad bacteria. Please note, while raw honey is not safe for baby to eat, but it’s perfectly safe for their skin – honey speeds up healing and prevents moisture loss.
I recommend only using soap on baby every 1-2 weeks, washing baby with oil every other bath time (and after using the soap as well). My Baby Bath Oil is an excellent simple blend of oils for that, but just olive oil straight out of your own cupboard works too.
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
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.
