WHAT IS IT FOR?
WHAT MAKES THIS SOAP SO EFFECTIVE?
Activated Charcoal: The key ingredient in this soap is the ACTIVATED CHARCOAL. Activated charcoal is just like regular charcoal except it is heated with a gas that causes it to expand, creating a porous surface that traps toxins. You may more commonly know activated charcoal as the black powder inside your water filter. This magic ingredient works because it chemically binds substances to its surface and absorbs its own weight thousands of times over. Because it removes toxins, it can help reduce acne and other skin impurities. It can also remove makeup completely from your pores.
Sea Salt: Sea salt is made when water from the ocean evaporates and salt is formed. It is a natural detoxifier and the calcium content of sea salt can help in cleaning up clogged skin pores. Sea salt is packed full of vitamins and minerals that provide beneficial nourishment to the skin cells. This helps keep the tissues hydrated and boosts blood circulation throughout the skin surface and increases the strength of cell membranes. If you have acne prone skin, sea salt will help keep your skin clean and clear by reducing the chance of skin infections.
Aloe Vera: This soap has an ALOE VERA base, chosen because of the many benefits this plant can offer the skin. Historically labelled the 'plant of immortality', Aloe Vera should be in everyone's daily skin care routine. The Aloe Vera plant contains two hormones: Auxin and Gibberellins. These two hormones provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation, great for acne affected skin. Gibberellins in Aloe Vera act as a growth hormone, stimulating the growth of new cells. It allows the skin to heal quickly and naturally with minimal scarring. It also contains a plethora of antioxidants including beta carotene, vitamin C and E, which can help improve the skin's natural firmness and keep the skin hydrated.I chose two essential oils for this formulation. Frankincense Essential Oil and Bergamot Essential Oil.
Frankincense Essential Oil: is extracted from the gum or resin of the frankincense tree. It is known to promote regeneration of healthy cells, and also keep the existing cells and tissues healthy. It is also known for its anti-aging qualities and its ability to eliminate sun sports, remove micro-wrinkles and tone and tighten skin.
Bergamot Essential Oil: is from the citrus Bergamot fruit. Certain components of the oil are antibiotic and disinfectant in nature, and have been known to inhibit the growth of germs, viruses and fungi It is considered a cicatrisant, which is a property or an agent that helps scars and other marks on the skin to disappear. It also makes the distribution of pigments and melanin even and uniform, resulting in the fading away of marks and an even, attractive skin tone.
This soap can replace your regular cleanser! Use it as a daily cleanser to wash away dirt, remove toxins, clear your pores from oil and makeup, leaving your skin squeaky clean. So simple but so effective.
