Know about Ingredients
Shea Butter Soap Base: Shea butter soap base is used to nourish and strengthen hair and skin in various natural hair and skin care products and cures. Shea butter soap base lends a creamy, silky texture to handmade soap and an off-white tint. While doing so, add vitamins E, A, and F to create a powerful moisturising base.
Silicone Soap Mould: Due to their simplicity, silicone moulds are quite popular. Silicone moulds are durable but flexible, making it simple to unmold both cold-process and melt and pour soap. In case you face any difficulty removing the soap from the moulds, stop and let it sit for a few more hours in the mould. It's not worth it to rip your project's sides or bottom!
Cedarwood Essential Oil: Cedarwood essential oil has anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and antibacterial qualities, making it useful for treating irritated skin, as well as acne and eczema. It removes dullness from your skin and prevents indications of premature ageing because it is high in antioxidants. It lowers breakouts, pigmentation, and blemishes by balancing the skin's sebum oil production.
Bay Leaf Essential Oil: Spicy and masculine! Bay Leaf is a fragrant spice with a strong fragrance. It also has a bitter, somewhat herby flavour that idealises manly soaps. This flavour oil has a minty and menthol flavour with black pepper and pine traces that will leave you feeling refreshed.
Orange Essential Oil: It possesses antimicrobial and antioxidant characteristics that can help soothe irritated skin, redness, breakouts, and wounds, as well as heal wounds and bacterial infections. It also protects the skin from dangerous pollutants and enhances its defences against UV radiation. It works as a natural cleaner to purify and detoxify the skin.
Poppy Seeds: Poppy seeds are high in antioxidants and important nutrients, which help prevent skin inflammation and infections and improve general skin and hair health. Poppy's high linoleic acid content makes it an excellent treatment for dermatitis, burns, and itching. They also provide gentle exfoliation for the skin.
Rubbing Alcohol (optional): Alcohol is used in soap manufacture to eliminate bubbles from melting and pouring soaps, prevent soda ash from developing on the soap's surface, unite the layers of poured soaps, and create clear soaps. It is also used to spray the silicone mould to remove soaps easily.
