PACKED WITH BENEFICIAL INGREDIENTS:
We start our Rosemary Mint Soap by naturally infusing rosemary leaves in olive oil over several weeks, then we add a small amount of finely ground rosemary leaves to act as a gentle exfoliant. Rosemary is a beneficial ingredient for skincare due to its astringent properties, which help to balance natural oils and boost skin circulation. It also has disinfectant and antiseptic properties, making it suitable for oily or acneic skin. The rosmarinic and carnosic acids in rosemary provide anti-inflammatory properties, helping to reduce redness and swelling.
Peppermint stimulates circulation in the skin, giving it a natural glow. Peppermint oil’s refreshing aroma helps reduce mental fatigue and stress.
Olive Oil is the primary oil we use in all our soaps for good reason. It has been used in soap for thousands of years, with evidence of it being used in ancient Egypt and the Mediterranean region. Due to olive oil's natural moisturizing properties and high content of antioxidants, olive oil-based soaps are believed to reduce skin inflammation, hydrate the skin, and keep it looking youthful.
Coconut oil is an excellent addition to any soap, as it creates a bubbly lather with superior cleansing power due to its high lauric acid content. Lauric acid is a naturally occurring fatty acid that acts as a powerful cleansing agent and has anti-bacterial properties. At AlpacaSoaps, we have carefully crafted our soap formula to ensure the superior cleansing of coconut oil is well balanced by including a high percentage of gently cleansing olive oil.
Unrefined shea butter is pure luxury. We love it for its ability to boost skin's cellular energy and regeneration. Raw organic shea butter has a luxurious consistency and deep nutty aroma. It's hard not to fall head over heels when opening up the latest shipment from Ghana. But, all swooning aside, shea butter is a lovely ingredient for your skin because of its fatty acid profile, and its complex alchemy of unsaponifiable phytochemicals makes it unsurpassed for boosting your skin's cellular energy and regeneration.
Castor oil is a unique ingredient in soap; its high concentration of ricinoleic acid creates a stable lather of large bubbles. Castor oil boasts numerous health benefits, including antimicrobial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties, which make it a perfect solution for those with sensitive or irritated skin.
