Australian Natural Handmade Soap with Essential Oils - BALANCE & MOISTURISE
We'll be honest, we LOVE our Natural Handmade Soap range, and personally won't use any other soap. Why? Because it's a step above what you'll find in the majority of commercial or mass-produced soaps: each bar is handmade in Australia using only the finest natural & sustainable ingredients (see below for a complete ingredient list), with no fillers or harsh foaming chemicals, preservatives, phosphates, sodium lauryl sulphates or parabens. And instead of being scented with artificial 'fragrances', the only scents you'll find in our Handmade Soaps are from pure, natural essential oils. As well as being a premium product for everyday family use, our Natural Handmade Soap is also suitable for those who are looking for a more natural alternative because of skin problems such as dry skin, eczema or psorisis, or sensitivities to some of the ingredients found in commercially produced soap.
Each long-lasting bar is approx 95 - 100g and is made by hand using the age old cold process method in which all of the ingredients are mixed at a low temperature. This process retains all the natural goodness of the base oils and ingredients, and produces large quantities of natural glycerine which is left to remain in the final bar of soap. Glycerine is a 'humectant' in that it draws moisture to itself, thus acting as a moisturiser on the skin rather than stripping the skin of its natural oils. Commercial soaps generally skim the glycerine from their product (rather than leave it in), resulting in a much harsher product on the skin: the glycerine is instead used in other products such as moisturiser, which are needed to replace the moisture that the harsh soaps have removed, creating a vicious cycle of using one product that strips the skin, and another to replace the moisture. Natural soaps on the other hand contain pure and natural, sustainable vegetable oils that are gentle on the skin. And with no added fragrances, the only scent comes from beautiful natural pure essential oils, which each have their own therapeutic benefits. These are the soaps that we at AQ use exclusively ourselves - we cannot find a better quality soap.
Our BALANCE & MOISTURISE soap features red clay to help balance the skin and improve blood circulation. Clays have been used in skincare since ancient times to help clean, nourish and soften, and red clay is often used for its gentle absorbent action, making it also suitable for irritated or acne prone skin. Featuring an olive oil base and scented with a gorgeous blend of cedarwood and orange essential oils, along with naturally moisturising shea butter - NO synthetic scents, fragrances or fillers.
