This handcrafted, simple ingredient soap is so gentle and nourishing for your skin! Made from Coconut oil, palm oil, olive oil and kukui nut oil, it is unscented and free of any toxins, chemicals, parabens and phthalates. The true star of this healing soap is the kukui nut oil.
Each bar ways approx 3.6 oz.
Kukui nut oil considered to be a well-balanced oil good for both dry and oily skin. It is loaded with Oleic acid and Linoleic acids, both of which have high levels of fatty acids. It is also naturally full of vitamins A, C and E, antioxidants that are known to protect your skin from environmental effects and prevent free-radical damage to skin cells. It’s the oleic acid, so close to the makeup of your own sebum, which absorbs so nicely into your skin leaving it feeling smooth and silky, never greasy. Oleic acid is known to reduce inflammation, and helps to regenerate your skin. Almost equally balanced is Linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid. Our bodies do not produce this essential fatty acid so we must get it from outside sources. Kukui nut oil is the perfect source! In topically applied tests, Lanoleic acid has reduced clogged pores in a short time. And it also helps with water loss prevention.
Olive Oil contains three major antioxidants: vitamin E, polyphenols, and phytosterols. Antioxidants, when topically applied, may help protect the skin from premature skin aging. Vitamin E partly accounts for the anti-aging benefits of olive oil because it helps restore skin smoothness and protects against ultraviolet light. Hydroxytyrosol, a rather rare compound found in olive oil, also prevents free radical damage to the skin.
Coconut oil is predominantly made up of saturated fats which are medium chain fatty acids or triglycerides. When applied on the skin, they keep it smooth to the touch. Due to the presence of these fats, coconut oil also retains the moisture content of the skin, as the fats eliminate moisture loss through the pores on skin.
Palm oil is one of the richest edible oils known to man. The oil is full of many healthy fatty acids, as well as an assortment of vitamins, antioxidants, and other phytonutrients. Additionally, the oil has incredibly high levels of vitamin A and vitamin E. Palm oil is very moisturizing and never dries out your skin. Also, adding palm oil into any natural soap results in the soap having a pleasant lather with nice medium bubbles. Finally, palm oil increases the hardness of the bar and helps it last longer.
