This soap is full of skin loving clay and invigorating lemongrass essential oil. Clay adds a really nice slip to the bar and the lemongrass is sure to awaken your senses. The essential minerals help to replenish and regenerate the epidermis of the skin to create soft and healthy glowing skin. Clay has been reported to help pull impurities from the skin. It acts as a gentle exfoliator leaving skin feeling more soft and supple. It can be beneficial in balancing sensitive or irritated skin.
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 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.
