This French inspired sea salt soap is for all skin types and it's formulated to nourish the skin and provide a light exfoliation. It's unscented and naturally colored. It's known that artificial colors and scents (even natural ones) can be irritating to skin and we want to start off on the right foot with the first step of skin care, cleansing. We've added organic spinach powder for some color but it also helps nourish the skin with it's bounty of vitamins and minerals.
Now you may be asking about the coconut oil in this soap... "isn't coconut oil comedogenic? Won't it clog my pores?" Nope! And here is why. It is important to understand that the coconut oil in our soap is “saponified.” When an oil is saponified that means it is no longer an oil. The chemical reactions in cold process soap making turns oil molecules into soap molecules by combining it with potassium hydroxide. So rest assured our facial soaps are non-comedogenic!
French Green Clay has also been added. This clay adds a subtle texture and offers gentle cleansing and detoxifying benefits as well. The Mediterranean Sea Salt and French Green Clay work together to give a light exfoliation. This powerhouse duo will actually help those who struggle with acne prone skin.
Here are some of the key benefits to using a sea salt soap:
- they are beneficial for the skin in that they help to balance the natural oils in your skin and don't strip it like detergent SLS soaps
- most importantly it exfoliates as you use it
- sea salt soap bars are very hard so they last longer than regular bars of soap
- some say they pull toxins from the body because of the minerals in
- the sea salt produces a creamy lather rather than a bubbly one
As with all bar soaps, leave it to dry in a dish between uses, though due to the salt in the soap this will happen faster with this bar. Use after dates will be on the packaging because sometimes we sell out of fully cured soap before the next batch is fully cured. All cold process soaps need 4-6 weeks to cure.
