If you want a very simple, cleansing but moisturizing soap this bar is for you. With only coconut oil this soap is great for anyone with sensitivities. The peppermint essential oil dominates this basic yet moisturizing soap. Expect lots of big bubbly lather with this coconut oil soap. Nearly a quarter of the coconut oil in this bar remains unsaponified. What this means is that there is a lot of nourishing oils left in the soap so it will not be drying. You can't help but "inhale" when using this natural, healing and aromatic soap.
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. I super-fat my soaps which means a portion of the oils remain un-saponified resulting in a cleansing yet moisturizing bar.
