With its active ingredients, such as sesquiterpenes, patchouli oil is a powerful ingredient to include in your skincare routine. Its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties make it effective in treating many minor skin issues. It also helps regenerate skin cells reducing the effects of aging and minimizing scarring wrinkles. Its calming scent can be used to reduce stress and anxiety.
African black soap, also known as Ose dudu, has been used for centuries to cleanse and nourish skin. It is made from a combination of natural ingredients such as shea butter, coconut or palm kernal oil, plantain peel extract, cocoa pod ash, and water. African black soap is renowned for its ability to treat numerous skin conditions. Additionally, it helps balance the skin's natural oils while gently exfoliating the surface to leave it feeling soft and smooth.
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.
