Soleseife or “sailors soap” is made from natural salt water. Sea salt of any kind can be beneficial for skin and is said to balance oil production and control bacteria. Both reasons make it a great addition to soap and skincare products for acne, but it’s great for any skin type! Most soaps don’t create lather in seawater. However, saltwater soaps do—and lather beautifully in seawater (and hard water). This makes it a perfect fit for your outdoor/beachy travels.
The seawater in this soap was collected from my beautiful local, Waipuka or Ocean beach (photo included). Hawkes Bay seawater is super clean, cold and refreshing (currents bring water from down Antarctica way) so this soap is complimented by an equally refreshing blend of spearmint and peppermint essential oils. Note: Please use this soap carefully in your lady-garden or manscaping areas as it the mint essential oils can be a little too ‘refreshing’ in sensitive areas for some people!
Each full 100g bar or “halfsies” 50g bar is made with: olive, coconut & rice bran oils, seawater, shea & cocoa butter, sodium hydroxide*, castor oil, zinc oxide, indigo, ground wild foraged nettle & activated charcoal, spearmint & peppermint essential oils & love. No nasties, just the good stuff.
* None remains in final product
To store handmade soap before using, please ensure you keep it somewhere dry. While using please store on a well drained soap dish or shelf and allow it to dry out between uses for maximum longevity. Ask for a free pumice stone at checkout, they make a perfect soap stand.
Please note: All my soap are handcrafted and cut in small batches so variations will occur in appearance. I am not making any medical claims regarding this product.
