Enriched with Aloe Vera and Coconut Milk, this one is a treat! The scent is a Sunflowers type fragrance. It’s a very nice, not-so-toxic fragrance. Raw organic Cacao butter, Sunflower seed oil, jojoba oil, shea butter, castor oil and mango butter all contribute their beauty-preserving ingredients to this 8% super-fatted soap. Olive oil infused with calendula and calendula flowers – Calendula is said to promote cell repair and growth, is anti-inflammatory and very soothing.
The brilliant yellow comes from Organic Red Palm Oil (sustainably obtained) which I happened to get on sale – and we did eat some. However, my family didn’t really seem to be crazy about it and it sat. I decided to incorporate it into a soap formulation before it went bad. The color of this oil is due to the carotenes (vitamin A), tocotrienols / tocopherols (Vitamin E) and lycopene. The skin will reap the benefits of these nutrients.
Kombucha? In Soap? Yep! As mentioned in a couple of my previous posts (click the ‘Probiotics’ tag below and they will pop up), I am a Kombucha and Jun brewer and consumer. While a lot of people think it’s a terrible waste to put booch in soap – I don’t know that it is. I’ve seen ferments live through some pretty extreme conditions – freezing, cooking, etc. The way this soap was made, the kombucha was never subjected to extreme heat, nor did it come in direct contact with the lye. It was added to the soap after the oils and lye were well blended.
