Introducing Soap 6: Activated Charcoal and Turmeric Face and Body – Pure Olive oil soap infused with Almond and Arnica oil

This is why I love this one…

  • CHARCOAL is known for its ability to absorb and draw out oil from the skin. Activated charcoal is fantastic for oily skin. Its ability to absorb oil and dirt from pores leaves skin feeling balanced. Activated charcoal removes toxins, it can help reduce the instances of acne and other skin impurities you might suffer from. 
  • TURMERIC gets its health benefits primarily because of curcumin, a bioactive component since it possesses anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral power. Turmeric has been used for thousands of years to treat various skin diseases and heal wounds to keep your skin beautiful and healthy. It’s great for hasten healing, treating numerous skin conditions, anti-aging and also helps exfoliaton.  
  • ALMOND OIL – Almond oil is hypoallergenic and good for sensitive skin. It has anti-ageing properties helping skin regenerate naturally. It also contains vitamins A & E that protect skin from sun damage and stimulate skin cell generation.
  • ARNICA OIL – Derived from the arnica flower of the sunflower family, arnica oil helps to reduce inflammatory pain when applied topically. Typically it’s used for the pain and swelling associated with bruises, sprains, pulls, muscle aches, and even arthritis, since it helps to boost circulation and speed up the healing process. Arnica oil is a popular treatment for dandruff, caused by scalp irritation, dry skin, or a fungal infection.

The first in my line of facial soaps…

  • ACTIVATED CHARCOAL – Activated charcoal soap can pull the unwanted excess oils from your skin along with the dirt from the skin. This gives you an oil-free, smooth look. It works wonders on clearing the pores of the impurities which are responsible for blackheads. It also helps reduce acne. It reduces the pore size while gently exfoliating the skin.
  • SHEA BUTTER – Moisturizes and hydrates. It has anti-inflammatory properties reducing skin irritation.
  • ALMOND OIL – Almond oil is hypoallergenic and good for sensitive skin. It has anti-ageing properties helping skin regenerate naturally. It also contains vitamins A & E that protect skin from sun damage and stimulate skin cell generation.
  • TEA TREE OIL – is a popular choice for treating acne because of its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It’s thought to calm redness, swelling, and inflammation. It may even help to prevent and reduce acne scars, leaving you with smooth, clear skin.
  • LEMONGRASS OIL – As this herb is packed with vitamin A and C, it works hard to keep your skin glossy. Beyond that it also has astringent properties which helps to minimise your pores as well as keep your oil levels balanced.
