Organic Colloidal Oatmeal gives this soap a slightly rough texture, making it a fantastic all-natural scrub that also sooth and protects irritated skin. The saponins also remove dirt from pores.

The herb is renowned for its remarkable high contents of iron, zinc, copper, magnesium, vitamins a natural alpha hydroxy acid (AHAs) & antioxidant. The high levels of flavonoids in rooibos help in preventing skin disorders such as eczema and acne. It also has surprising anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic properties. This fights a variety of bacterial infections on the skin and is also preventative in it occurring again.
A key factor in the production of healthy skin-producing cells is the enzyme called superoxide dismutase. This enzyme is found in abundance in Redbush and helps fights wrinkles by neutralizing the free radicals. It is also good to know that published studies have shown that rooibos in skin products is effective in preventing precancerous skin cells from replicating.
Cedarwood Essential Oil
This oil as an astringent is intensely antibacterial warding off infection, irritation, and blemishes caused by an overgrowth of bacteria. It is good at curing the inflammation that leads to irritating skin issues. It’s antiseptic properties that have a calming effect on bumps, pimples, or wounds and it is also known to tighten the skin!
Sandalwood Essential Oil
Sandalwood oil is known to give you a bright, clean, and flawless skin, it also prevents skin aging. Regular use of sandalwood reduces lines and scars and can also cure skin infections and itching. As in Cedarwood oil, it too contains antiseptic and antimicrobial properties that help destroy bacteria and germs.
As a well-known astringent, sandalwood essential oil is very useful in getting rid of overly oily skin by tightening large pores and controlling excess sebum secretion. It softens skin by increasing its ability to retain moisture.
Frankincense Essential Oil
This oil has traditionally been used to reduce acne blemishes, reduce the appearance of large pores, and to prevent wrinkles. It has even been attributed to the ability to help lift and tighten the skin to naturally slow the signs of aging! It is also used to reduces inflammation, skin discoloration, and imperfections. It is a powerful astringent; and therefore, helps protect skin cells.
Colloidal Oatmeal is very moisturising due to the high level of fat found in it and is also anti-inflammatory and an anti-oxidant.
If you apply your soap to a natural sponge, cloth or loofah, it will last much longer.
