The special ingredients of this soap include apricot fruit powder and calendula infusion, chosen for:
Apricot fruit powder is a natural, gentle exfoliant. Thanks to its fine round grain, it is unlikely to cause damage to the skin, it is great at sloughing away dead skin cells to reveal a brighter, more radiant complexion. It has a high content of fatty acids, minerals, and vitamins, and can help improve skin hydration levels.
Calendula infusion has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties and is said to be good for those with sensitive skin as it has soothing properties and offers antioxidant protection. It is said to also be able to help promote an even skin tone and boost radiance with continued use.
Handmade soaps naturally have a high glycerin content, which is great for your skin, but it also means the soap requires a place to dry out between uses. The glycerin attracts water and if left in standing water, the soap will break down quickly. To prolong the lifespan of your soap, do not allow it to sit in a dish that allows water to pool in the bottom. Instead, be sure to store your soap in a dry place on a draining soap dish. A slatted wooden dish is ideal because it wicks water away from the soap, allowing the soap to dry properly. Unused soaps need to be stored in a cool and dry place, ideally not the bathroom, an area such as a wardrobe can be really good. If you need to transport the soap and are concerned about the scent getting in to other items (such as food), simply wrap the soap snugly in greaseproof paper to block the scent transfer.
For external use only. Avoid direct eye contact. Not for application to the mucous membranes or on broken skin. If irritation occurs discontinue use. Not food, not to be eaten.
