Quality Ingredients/Skin Benefits
* All our soaps are suitable for Vegan and Vegetarians (with the exception of Natural Honey Soap).
We use simple, excellent quality nourishing ingredients, that cleanse, moisturize, and help maintain a healthier youthful looking skin that's high in glycerin content, vital for moisturizing and cleansing effectively.
Forms a luxurious rich, creamy lather – Packed full of antioxidant properties for nourishing and fighting the signs of aging – Gentle on sensitive skin – can assist with dry skin complaints such as psoriasis, eczema and acne. Gently exfoliates – removing dead skin cells, preventing your skin from looking dull and rough, hence you have smoother softer skin. Each bar is lightly scented with variety of therapeutic essential oils, leaving you feeling fresh, and revitalized.
When it comes to skin care and what we put on our skin, we know its important to use only the finest natural ingredients. We like to use extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil and a variety of therapeutic essential oils, combined with natural botanical additives such as hand-harvested Irish seaweed because of its high nutrient content and its benefits to your skin.
W e use variety of homegrown botanicals, herbs, and other natural additives e.g. poppy seed, flax seed, Irish oats, natural honey, caraway seed, to name but a few for exfoliating, adding color and natural scent.
Although a lot of soap makers tend to use less expensive oils, we feel its worth the extra price when it comes to quality. We refuse to load our soaps with nasty chemicals because of the impact on our skin and the environment. More and more people are becoming aware of the negative effects synthetic additives have in commercial soap, and for this reason are using natural handmade soap.
Our soaps are handmade totally from scratch, in small batches by the traditional, old fashioned, cold process soap making method taking approximately six weeks to cure. This process retains the natural glycerin which is extremely beneficial to our skin.
The end result is a unique, moisturizing, gentle cleansing natural soap, with a lovely silky lather, rich in natural glycerin, perfect for all skins types. Many commercial soap makers tend to remove the glycerin and use it in other cosmetics.
Switching to natural handmade soap maybe the answer to your dry or sensitive skin complaints. So why not experience the difference, and pamper yourself to a yummy bar of your choice, kick start your morning or unwind after a long stressful day with one of Ireland’s luxurious natural soaps.
