I love a challenge and this was definitely one of those! Requested by a beautiful teenager, whose confidence was rudely hindered by Acne flare ups!
My mission was to create an all natural soap to help with acne prone skin. My research led to some of nature’s most amazing ingredients!
Turmeric is known for its acne reducing abilities. This is due to its anti-bacterial properties which work against anti- P. Acnes bacteria (the bacteria linked to acne).
Turmeric contains fatty acids which reduce excess skin oils.
Turmeric is an antioxidant helping to delay premature skin aging and sun damage and is also anti-inflammatory aiding in the reduction of redness from blemishes.
Bentonite Clay absorbs impurities and excess oils, unclogging and shrinking pores.
Bentonite clay contains many beneficial minerals one of which is Silica this trace mineral strengthens connective tissue making your skin tough and super soft at the same time!
Bentonite clay can help rebuild damaged skin tissue.
Antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties.
The glycoproteins in the gel provide wound healing benefits as it can help insulate and protects the skin from drying out.
Aloe Ferox contains malic acid which can help to break down dead skin cells, so they can be washed away clearing the pores.
Tea Tree has powerful antibacterial, antiseptic & antimicrobial protection and is a proven acne treatment.
Also Tea Tree Is great for reducing blemishes which improves your skins appearance.
Lemongrass has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties making it a very effective cleanser for all skin types.
As a natural astringent lemongrass tones and minimizes pores, without over drying the skin (no toner required!).
Although there is already a whole extra section all about the oils and butters that go into our Jojoba soap I still felt the need to give Jojoba another shout out here! The reason being, Authentic Jojoba Soap is designed to leave a thin protective layer on your skin, this is especially important to acne and oily prone skin. The reason its important is that completely stripping the skin of oil can prompt your body to overcompensate by creating too much sebum (oil) as a protective mechanism… back to square one! But as Jojoba oil is very like our own skins sebum, leaving a thin protective layer assures your body that overcompensation is not necessary, therefore down regulating sebum production.
IF THAT’S NOT ENOUGH….
COCONUT OIL – An ideal, deep and thorough cleanser.
MANGO BUTTER – has unique repairing and protecting properties.
SHEA BUTTER – helps the body produce more collagen.
RICE BRAN OIL – deeply penetrate the skin nourishing it from within. Helps to even out the skin tone.
OLIVE OIL – humectants properties increasing the water retention capacity of the skin.
CASTOR OIL – fades blemishes, scars and uneven skin tone.
JOJOBA OIL – readily accepted by our bodies, fully absorbing into the skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth and with a protective barrier.
Feed your skin with the nourishment required for it to glow with health and vitality, so it won’t merely be ‘healthy looking’ it will glow beautifully because it truly is healthy!
