The special ingredients in this soap include red clay and a St. John’s Wort infusion chosen for:
Red clay takes care of the skin by absorbing dirt, oil, as well as toxins, while exfoliating dead skin cells, reducing pore sizes, tightening and rejuvenating the skin while improving the overall skin quality in return.
St. John’s Wort has antioxidants and interleukins known to decrease inflammation, making it a practical option for those suffering with aches and pains as well as skin conditions that cause inflammation. Topical application of St. John’s Wort has been shown to hydrate skin with it’s natural oils. Consistent application have been said to firm up the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and may also help decrease the appearance of scars when used topically.
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, 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.
