Soaps in the making

Today is production day, which is the day we set aside time to restock products and formulate new ones. We made four new batches of soap which are scented with only premium essential oils and colored with either clays and/or herbs. These soaps will not have any fancy look to them like you can achieve using cosmetic coloring however they will have an eco-friendly appeal. Here is a brief look into what we have in the making:

Brighter Days will do just that brighten your day with its inclusion of Aloe Vera Juice, Kaolin Clay, Paprika and essential oils of Pink Grapefruit, Lemon, Sweet Orange and Litsea Cuebeba

Herbal Spice has an herbal water infusion of Hisbiscus, Marshmellow Root, Nettle and Burdock Root and an Essential oil blend of Cinnamon, Rosemary, Black Pepper and Clove

Pink Ginger has coconut milk, orange peel powder and essentials oils of Clove, Ginger, Sweet Orange and Pink Grapefruit

reneU has coconut milk and rice powder with pink grapefruit, peppermint, rosemary and spearmint essential oils.

We used a variety of different vegetable oils and exotic butters in each batch. Each batch contains Olive, Rice Bran, Palm, Coconut, Castor, Sunflower/Safflower and/or shea, cocoa and mango butters.

Sugar Scrubs

Sugar Scrub, what is it? And why bother to use it?

A Sugar Scrub is a body treatment designed to slough away dry, dead skin. Our sugar scrub is comprised of sugar, vegetable oils, exotic butters and vitamin E and come in an array of fragrances. We even offer our sugar scrubs in a sampler size.

How to use it?
Sugar scrubs are used on thoroughly wet skin and when used properly the skin’s appearance and texture is improved. To use simply rub the scrub on wet skin, particularly dry skin and apply a little pressure then rinse off.

Why bother to use it?
The sugar granules peel away dry, dead skin cells to reveal healthy skin with a glistening glow. The moisturizing ingredients found in our scrubs help retain moisture, thus keeping skin soft, hydrated and supple. This process will help retain the skin’s healthy appearance and texture. It is important to exfoliate the skin, especially during/ in dry and cold weather when the body easily loses moisture.

Why do you use sugar instead of sea salt?
Our main reason for using sugar is because of the size of the granules. Sea salt granules are larger than sugar granules, which makes a salt scrub much rougher on the skin than sugar. In addition sugar is gentler on the skin particularly if you have a small abrasion. Just imagine how it would feel if salt comes into contact with an open cut, it doesn’t leave a good feeling.
