Below are a few key active ingredients that offer beauty benefits for a variety of skin types found in our collection of soaps handmade in Urla, Turkey.
Cleopatra allegedly bathed in goat's milk for its moisturizing properties. Goat's milk is rich in vitamin A & D and antioxidant properties. Calcium and potassium in the lactic acid accelerate the healing process on damaged skin and nourish during the skin cell's rejuvenation process for brighter, more resilient skin.
Grapeseed oil is an anti-aging component that tightens and brightens skin appearance while moisturizing the skin through balancing both dry and oily patches. Extremely rich in beta-carotene and vitamins D, C, E, combined with polyphenols (an anti-inflammatory antioxidant), grapeseed oil is effective in minimizing the prominence of acne and reducing the appearance of scars.
Olive oil is a natural moisturizer that does not clog pores and contains three major antioxidants: vitamin E, polyphenols, and phytosterols – all which help slow signs of aging. A powerful natural ingredient, olive oil is excellent for nail and cuticle care. Use it as an eye makeup remover or a substitute for shaving cream.
Minerals found in volcanic clay have anti-aging properties through natural exfoliants that result in a revitalized complexion. Volcanic clay contains sodium bentonite – a component that not only fights against acne and cellulite, but also reduces the appearance of wrinkles, cellulite, stretch marks and help minimize pores. Best suited for oily skin, volcanic clay is highly absorbent, effective in trapping oil and surface debris.
Orange is rich in vitamin C, known to have beauty benefits. It provides a natural glow as it removes dark spots and blemishes overtime. Antioxidants slow the appearance of aging by combating skin oiliness, while restoring collagen and improving skin's texture and colour.
Cinnamon is a beauty super-power for both topical and internal consumption. Rich in calcium, magnesium and iron – essential for the appearance of youthful skin. When applied topically, its anti-inflammatory properties help treat pimples, eczema and other skin infections all while reducing natural odours. In some cases it has also been effective for reducing the appearance of cellulite and scars by promoting blood circulation through its natural exfoliant qualities.
