All of my soaps are glycerine based.Glycerine is composed of saponified vegtable oils. Glycerine is a humectant which means it brings moisture in and helps to retain it.I have added different herbs, and essential oils for their specific properties to create various healing soaps.All of them helps to heal the epidermal(skin) layers when used over time. The glycerine used is made with organic vegetable sources.The colorants are natural powdered plants.
This soap is made with calendula petals, geranium essential oil, and tumeric as a coloring.Calendula is a type of a marigold that is high in cartenoids like leutin.They are antioxidents.Calendula has been scientifically proven to heal skin afflictions.It is also antiseptic,antifungal, and anti-inflammatory.Geranium essential oil tones skin cells while bringing the blood flow up to the outer layers of the skin so that the calendula can do it's work.Tumeric is anti-inflammatory and antibacterial.
