SPOT LIGHT ON INGREDIENTS

Made with coconut oil!

Coconut oil is an important ingredient in natural soap, as it helps to create and maintain a stable lather.

Coconut oil is high in fatty acids that are well known to have anti-microbial properties effective against bacteria and fungi. Studies have shown coconut oil to have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.

Coconut oil has been found to be almost too good at cleansing possibly resulting in dry skin, this is why we combine coconut oil with a selection of other nourishing oils. Striking a balance between cleansing and nourishing results in a cleansing soap bar with a good lather, that doesn’t dry the skin & is nutrient rich.

Contains RSPO Certified Segregated Sustainable Palm Oil

Palm oil is an ingredient which has been in the spot light recently. 

It is so important to us that every ingredient choice we make is done so with a clear understanding of the facts. 

100% of the palm oil we use is RSPO certified sustainable, not just that but the supply chain is totally traceable as we use only segregated sustainable palm oil. Substituting palm oil for any other oil would require between 4 and 10 times the land currently used, damaging many more habitats (source WWF 2021). 

Palm oil is a fantastic oil in bar soap, helping to create a hard bar, with a good level of creamy foam. It makes a great cleanser, almost too good, so it can be drying without other oils.

Switching to natural deodorant

 

Conventional deodorant and especially antiperspirants are known to block pores, in the case of antiperspirants aluminum is typically used to block the sweat ducts.
Initially when moving to a natural deodorant, you can find for the first few days that you seem to sweat more, this is due to the pores slowly unclogging from the commercial antiperspirants.

 

Once the detox period is completed you should find that your body adjusts and our natural deodorant keeps your underarm dry and fresh. The great news is that in our experience our natural deodorant works better the longer you use it.

 

Using the natural deodorant

 

Ensure that your under arm is clean and dry.
The deodorant applys best when warm, apply the stick to your under arm, allow to warm for a few seconds then apply a small amount with a single glide, repeat just once more if needed.
Applying too much will reduce effectiveness, and possibly result in staining on clothing. Trying to apply without warming can causing irritation due to the drag.

Reed Diffuser Usage

If scent needs increasing remember to flip the reeds, and swirl the liquid around.
Usage Option A:
  1. Pour 80ml of fractionated coconut into your container.
  2. Add 15 to 20 ml of your choice of essential oils (Check scent strength and increase as needed at this stage).
  3. Stir until the carrier oil and the essential oils are completely mixed.
  4. If you notice any separation, periodically swill around liquid.
  5. You can add 1 to 2 table spoons of everclear or vodka to increase diffusion.
