Organic Oats – anti-inflammatory qualities that help to reduce itchiness. According to a 2012 study*, oatmeal can protect skin and soothe the itching and irritation from eczema as well as strengthen the outer barrier of your skin, making it an ideal ingredient in an everyday essential for anyone who is prone to skin issues such as eczema or acne.
Organic Unrefined Shea Butter - has been used for centuries to protect the skin from harsh weather conditions. Is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to soothe irritated skin. Unrefined shea butter has not been exposed to any chemicals or heat during processing, preserving its natural nutrients. A study conducted in 2009** concluded that Shea Butter is a more effective emollient for eczema than petroleum jelly. Meaning not only is it better for the planet, but Shea Butter is also safer for your skin than many synthetic emollients on the market.
Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil - When used in a soap, the medium-chain fatty acids within coconut oil have antimicrobial properties that helps reduce the presence of bacteria, fungi, and viruses on the skin. This helps to eliminate the risk of infection caused by scratching itchy skin. When combined with NaOH, the saponification of the oils, water and NaOH create an unrivalled, luxurious lather which leaves your skin feeling moisturised and clean.
Organic Cocoa Butter - has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which makes it effective in healing wounds and protecting against further tissue damage. Cocoa Butter adds firmness and moisture to the soap, perfect alternative to palm oil.
Organic Castor Oil – high in Ricinoleic Acid, a Monounsaturated Fatty Acid, Castor Oil is a natural moisturiser that offers great hydration to sore, dry skin. An effective humectant that adds a creamy texture to the soaps lather.
Organic Olive Oil and Organic Unrefined Cane Sugar – No particular benefits to the skin to shout about but when included in a soap formulation they produce sugar fatty acid esters, which are very gentle cleansing agents.
