This 100% natural soap was infused with organic Redbush. We use traditional cold pressed soap making methods with wood moulds to create this artisan bar made of seven quality oils and butter.
We have carefully selected an essential oil blend that has astringent and antiseptic properties. It also contributes to this soap’s masculine scent.
The herb is renowned for its remarkable high contents of iron, zinc, copper, magnesium, vitamins a natural alpha hydroxy acid (AHAs) & antioxidant. This contributes to its astounding benefits for your skin when applied both topically or taken as a beverage.
The high levels of flavonoids in rooibos help in preventing skin disorders such as eczema and acne. It also has surprising anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic properties. This fights a variety of bacterial infections on the skin and is also preventative in it occurring again.
A key factor in the production of healthy skin-producing cells is the enzyme called superoxide dismutase. This enzyme is found in abundance in Redbush and helps fights wrinkles by neutralizing the free radicals.
It is also good to know that published studies have shown that rooibos in skin products is effective in preventing precancerous skin cells from replicating.
This clay is able to bind to bacteria and toxins living on the surface of the skin and within the pores and extract it. This helps to reduce the outbreak of blemishes, alleviate redness, clear blackheads and purify your skin from environmental pollution, excess sebum, dirt, germs, and dead skin cells. It reduces inflammation and redness.
Cedarwood Essential Oil
This oil as an astringent is intensely antibacterial warding off infection, irritation, and blemishes caused by an overgrowth of bacteria. It is good at curing the inflammation that leads to irritating skin issues. It’s antiseptic properties that have a calming effect on bumps, pimples or wounds and are a great way to solve razor burns. It is also known to tighten the facial skin!
Bergamot Essential Oil
Bergamot is an astringent, has antibacterial properties and is a natural cleanser, its purpose in this soap is to help remove dirt and impurities. It also aids in healing scars, minimise marks and helps to unclog pores.
Sandalwood Essential Oil
Sandalwood oil is known to give you a bright, clean and flawless skin, it also prevents skin aging. Regular use of sandalwood reduces lines and scars and can also cure skin infections and itching. As in Cedarwood oil, it too contains antiseptic and antimicrobial properties that help destroy bacteria and germs.
As a well-known astringent, sandalwood essential oil is very useful in getting rid of overly oily skin by tightening large pores and controlling excess sebum secretion. It softens skin by increasing its ability to retain moisture.
Creamy with bentonite clay giving the bar a nice slip.
If you apply your soap to a natural sponge, cloth or loofah, it will last much longer.
