Castor oil is an oil pressed from castor beans. It is highly concentrated with ricinoleic acid, which is extremely useful in treating skin rashes and infections. Castor oil provides an amazing, creamy lather and provides a high level of conditioning and moisturization.
Cocoa butter is made from the roasted seeds of the cocoa tree. Like many other oils and butters, it is high in vitamin E and antioxidants. We use a pure cocoa butter that is unrefined and not deodorized, which leaves it with a beautiful cocoa aroma. Cocoa butter makes a hard bar of soap and is an excellent moisturizer.
Coconut oil is extracted from the kernel or meat of mature coconuts harvested from the coconut palm. It is a staple ingredient in our soap making because of its many amazing properties for your skin. Because of its highly cleansing properties, we use coconut oil in smaller amounts to eliminate drying out the skin. Coconut oil also creates an amazing, creamy lather, and creates voluminous bubbles.
Olive oil is a staple in many of our soaps, and for good reason—it has been used for thousands of years in soap. In fact, soap made solely with olive oil has its own name: Castile soap, named for a region in Spain where many olives are grown. Olive oil is gentle on skin of all ages, from babies to the elderly, because of its gentle cleansing properties. It is also high in antioxidants like vitamin E and polyphenols.
Shea butter is a fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree, and is a soft, creamy butter that gives a silky and luxurious feeling to soap. It is high in vitamins A and E, as well as many fatty acids and minerals. Since it does not fully saponify during the soap making process, it is an amazing ingredient to increase the nourishing properties absorbed into your skin.
An essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. Essential oils are extracted using numerous methods, but we exclusively use essential oils extracted via steam distillation because it does not include alcohol or solvents as part of the process. We also exclusively use pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils and require a Certificate of Analysis on every oil to prove it is a pure essential oil and not mixed with another liquid.
Activated charcoal draws bacteria, poisons, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of skin, helping you to achieve a flawless complexion and fight acne. Charcoal is not metabolized, adsorbed or absorbed by the body, but it can be used to treat some poisonous bites and disinfect some wounds.
