AGED Soaps - There are so many personal hygiene products to choose from, we tend to forget the natural alternatives that humanity has relied on for hundreds and even thousands of years. While your regular shower gel or soap may have an amazing fragrance, an irresistible creamy consistency and produce lots of foam, it’s also full of chemicals and usually made with cheap oils that provide little or no benefits to your skin.
Our soap is a natural hard soap made using an old traditional method and obviously no colorants, preservatives or cheap fillers. During the aging process, any alkaline content that didn’t react during saponification slowly breaks down in contact with air and water content gradually decreases, making the soap bars harder, less scent and much healthier for the skin as all the oils concentrate, it transforms into a wonderful healthy face and body soap. All our soap bars can be used by anyone looking for a natural, chemical-free soap, but it can also help in a variety of skin problems. The olive oil used to make this soap gives it a creamy consistency and makes it especially gentle and moisturizing. Virgin olive oil contains valuable antioxidants, helps restore your skin’s natural balance, it has a mild anti-inflammatory effect reducing redness and irritation and it is usually well tolerated even by the most sensitive skin types. Our aged soaps over time will lose most of their scent, BUT the benefits of a aged soap are much greater than a scent. Over time all the water evaporates and the essential oils along with the carrier oils all concentrate. Much more CREAM lather not foam.
