Key Benefits & Features
The Chamomile Effect. Chamomile has been used since the time of Hippocrates, the father of medicine, in 500 BC. The ancient Greeks, Egyptians, and Romans regularly used chamomile flowers to treat skin redness and dry skin caused by dry weather. Our German Chamomile is grown and harvested in our herb gardens at the base of Mt Kenya, its dark blue colour is a testimony to the high chamazulene content and its 100% purity.
Handmade, Eco-friendly and Vegan. All our soaps are handmade in small batches to maintain authenticity and the human touch in every bar. The ingredients are sourced locally, and the oils, waxes, butters as well as essential oils and hydrosols are plant-derived and natural. They are not tested on animals, are chemical-fragrance free with no preservative. The ingredients are sourced from eco-friendly suppliers and manufactures, do not contain palm and the soap is totally biodegradable.
Triple Skin Moisturization. Our soaps have three types of natural moisturisers: natural fatty acids that remain in the final oil, glycerol from a variety of oils and shea butter after saponification, and the avocado wax. These together ensure that your body remains moisturized after bathing and helps prevent dry skin conditions.
Gentle Cleansing. Our soap cleanses naturally using vegetable oils that are gentle to your skin but effective against any dirt present. Additionally, the non-oil part of the virgin cold-pressed oils offer additional cleansing. The pH is closer to neutral.
The Natural Benefits. Our soap is made from cold saponification, without the introduction of external heat. This way, all the benefits of the ingredients – from coconut oil to the shea butter – are retained in the soap. Similarly, all the benefits of the essential oils and the hydrosol are retained.
Natural and Therapeutic Fragrance. The Pharaonic Frankincense is known to aid in healing of scars and wounds, the lemongrass is a tissue toner whilst the rosemary, petitgrain and thyme are excellent against many skin ailments, including eczema, scabies, dermatitis and varicose veins.
Rose Geranium Hydrosol. This is the co-product of steam distillation of our geranium essential oil. It has a rich, floral and sweet fragrance with wonderful rose-like afternote. It is anti-inflammatory and cooling, with a calming effect on sunburns, rash and insect bites.
