Description

We hand craft our Lavender + Shea Butter Soap with moisturising certified organic unrefined Shea Butter, extra virgin olive oil, lavender, ylang ylang and orange essential oils and plant dyes.

Certified Organic Unrefined Shea Butter

Shea Butter comes from the nuts of the Karite tree which grows in the wild along the West African savannah region. We have sourced it from women’s co-operatives in Ghana where they receive fair-trade prices.

Shea Butter has a long history as a beauty product and has even been found in Cleopatra’s ancient Egypt. Shea butter is edible and is sometimes substituted for cocoa butter in chocolate. So if it’s good enough to eat it’s good enough to put on your skin.

Vitamins A, E and F and essential fatty acids nourish and repair the skin to leave it feeling soft and smooth.

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender essential oil is a natural oil extract from the steam distillation of lavender flowers. It’s scent is calming and said to ease anxiety and promote restful sleep. Topically, Lavender oil is soothing, antibacterial and anti-microbial.

No Palm Oil

We don’t use palm oil in our soap due to the devastating effect the palm oil industry is having on rainforest ecosystems in Asia. Instead we use a combination of organic virgin coconut oil, liquid oils such as extra virgin olive and sunflower, and cocoa and shea butters.

Natural Scent and Colour from Plants.

We only use essential oils distilled from fragrant plants to scent our soap. The many healing and therapeutic effects of essential oils have been studied widely. We are against putting anything synthetic on our skin because ultimately it will be absorbed. We only use natural and non-toxic Australian clays and plant extracts to colour our soap.

Ingredients: Purified water, organic extra virgin coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, tallow, organic unrefined shea butter, sodium hydroxide*, alkanna tinctoria extract, essential oils of lavender, ylang ylang and orange.

*none remains after saponification.

We recommend you use a well draining soap dish with your cold-process soap to keep the bar dry between uses. It will last 2x as long. Or try one of our coconut fibre soap rests for only $3!
