Australia Orange & Poppyseed Soap with Australian Kaolin Clay
** Note: A word of warning to those with sensitive skin... I used a lot more organic sweet paprika than usual for this current batch, as was seeking this stronger, orange colour. Whilst paprika is known for its numerous benefits for the skin, given its high levels of antioxidants, it is also possible this level of spice may irritate your skin if you have sensitive skin. I have tested it on myself and my family and it is no problem for us but we don't have sensitive skin.
Uplift and energise the mind and cleanse the body with the scent of Australian oranges. Australian white kaolin clay draws impurities from the skin yet leaves it soft and smooth. Poppyseeds provide for gentle exfoliation and texture. Organic sweet paprika has been infused into olive oil for 8 weeks, and not only provides a natural, gorgeous orange colour but perhaps surprisingly, is loaded with antioxidants such as betacarotene, vitamins and minerals which help protect and support the skin’s collagen, boost circulation, and is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.
Ingredients: Olive oil, organic coconut oil, USDA certified organic sustainable palm oil from Colombia, filtered water, lye, Australian orange essential oil, Australian white kaolin clay, poppyseeds, organic sweet paprika.
*Lye, or sodium hydroxide, is a harsh, natural alkali which is used to make a gentle, mild soap plus naturally-created glycerin, when combined with oils (other 'soap' may have synthetic glycerin added in). The sodium hydroxide is completely used up in this process so that NO lye, or sodium hydroxide, remains in your bar of soap.
