A nourishing treat for skin. Calendula is highly valued in the treatment of skin issues. It is known to promote wound healing, relieve dry itchy skin and calm skin inflammation. For this soap I use infused calendula oil as well as calendula petals.
All of my soaps are made from scratch, all natural, chemical free, SLS free, dye and fragrance free. Most skincare and soap uses synthetic fragrance oils and micas, oxides and dyes as colorants. In the spirit of keeping my bars as close to nature as possible I only use essential oils and botanicals or clay for colorants. I find this to be of great benefit to the body because while micas, oxides, dyes and synthetic fragrances offer no skin healing properties, essential oils and botanicals/clays are well known to be nourishing to the skin and emotionally balancing to the user. While most commercial soaps rely on sulfates to create their lather, cold-process soap gets its creamy lather from the saponins in the oils that are released during the reaction of lye and oil. No lye remains in the finished bar of soap. While most commercial soaps rely on sulfates to create their lather, cold-process soap get its creamy lather from the saponins in the oils that are released during the reaction of lye and oil. I super-fat my soaps which means a portion of the oils remain un-saponified resulting in a cleansing yet moisturizing bar.
This bar weighs approx. 5oz and will last quite awhile if kept dry between uses. Ingredients include calendula infused olive oil, coconut oil, RSPO palm oil, calendula petals, Orange essential oil, Lemon essential oil, Litsea cubeba essential oil. Each item is handmade and may vary slightly from the pictures.
