All our Carrier Oils are plant-based. They are vegetable oils derived from the fatty sections of plants, usually from the seeds, kernels or nuts. Every carrier oil has its own unique combination of therapeutic properties and characteristics and, as the name implies, they ‘carry’ the benefits of essential oils and other natural additives to our skin.
One popular carrier oil that we do NOT use in any of our soaps, however, is palm oil because of the harm that palm oil is known to wreck on rainforests (https://www.rainforest-rescue.org/topics/palm-oil). We SAY NO TO PALM OIL and we believe that it would be better for our environment as a whole if we all Say NO to Palm Oil! (http://www.saynotopalmoil.com/Whats_the_issue.php).
Our Essential Oils are rich in vitamins, antiseptics, antibiotics and hormones that help skin cells to regenerate and wounds to heal. Their fragrance can be both a stimulant and a relaxant, and often just makes us plain happy. The positive vibrations generated by essential oils help us release energetic blocks in our emotional and mental systems; preventing disease and chronic illnesses from taking hold in our physical bodies.
The Herbs and Clays we use contain a wealth of antioxidants, beta carotene, gently-exfoliating enzymes and a medley of vitamins and minerals that help skin problems and are highly beneficial for our skin.
All the ingredients that we use for our soaps – carrier oils, essential oils, herbs and clays – are 100 % natural.
