Local Raw Honey hasn’t been processed and will give your skin the healing benefits that it needs. Not all honey is created equal. Most of the honey found in grocery stores has been processed with heat, which kills off healing enzymes and destroys a lot of the nutrient-rich content. Raw Honey helps with sensitive, mature, and dull & lifeless skin. It is naturally antibacterial so it also helps fight & prevent acne. Depending on where the honey is collected from, it contains many nutrients and minerals excellent for skin health such as vitamin B, iron, manganese, copper, potassium and calcium. It also acts as a humectant drawing moisture to the skin and is perfect as a gentle cleansing solution for even very sensitive skin.

Kaolin Clay has been traditionally used  in caring, nourishing, and soothing different skin types. The clay contains high content of silica that helps in removing dead skin cells and gives it remarkable regenerative powers. It purifies, detoxes and moisturizes the skin. In addition, kaolin clay has unique minerals and phyto-nutrients present, which help in eliminating toxin and oil from the skin.

Bentonite Clay is a unique clay due to its ability to produce an “electrical charge” when hydrated. Upon contact with fluid, its electrical components change, giving it the ability to absorb toxins. Bentonite is known for its ability to absorb and remove toxins, heavy metals, impurities, and chemicals. It also helps get oxygen to cells as it pulls excess hydrogen and allows the cells to replace it with oxygen instead.

Castor Oil is detoxifying and helps to break up oils on the face that clog glands and pores. It contains a compound called undercylenic acid, which can help to disinfect the skin and even kill bacteria that cause skin conditions such as acne. Castor oil can be very moisturizing and can even soften dry skin and rough age spots. It even helps with skin conditions like dermatitis, which can cause severely rough, dry skin. Using castor oil on a nightly basis can be especially helpful in the winter months when skin is at its driest.

Cedarwood Essential Oil helps the skin to heal itself, from small cuts & minor wounds, to excessive sebum production & inflammatory issues. It tightens and tones the skin, and helps to fight & prevent acne.

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.

 

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.
