SPECIFIC TO THIS PRODUCT:
We purchase Seaweed from Bali's' southern tip; Nusa Dua. The local harvesters of the region plant the quick-regenerating seaweed in the tidal pools of the Indian Ocean. Many nutrients that people need to survive are found in seaweed. Richer than any land plant, seaweed is recognized as a complex source of vital minerals, trace elements, proteins and vitamins. The vitamins and minerals nourish the skin helping to "soften" rough, dry skin and help to remove dead skin cells. When included in skin treatments, it has been reported that seaweed assists in the emulsification of fat cells & tissues. Massaging the soap lather on the fatty areas of the body promotes blood circulation and increases the body's metabolic rate. When the pores open during a warm bath or shower, the active ingredients penetrate into the dermis and help to dilate the blood vessels. This contributes to enhanced blood circulation which promotes the breakdown of fats and lipids. Seaweed will soothe damaged or irritated skin, heal minor skin infections, detoxify and cleanse, to help you maintain smooth, firm textured and radiant skin.
Additionally we add nutrient-rich Chlorophyll made from Alfalfa grass. Chlorophyll being rich in many vitamins and minerals works to nourish tired, exposed skin. Chlorophyll's strongest attribute is its ability to accelerate the formation of granulation tissue that forms the base for new tissue growth.
Our essential oil blend compliments this soaps healing properties making it an excellent choice for normal to oily-combination, acne-prone skin. Lime essential oil is astringent, antibacterial, and antiseptic; Lime oil balances overactive sebaceous glands that lead to oily or blemished skin, and helps clear acne. It revitalizes under-active and mature skin and helps with cellulite by improving circulation and encouraging the elimination of wastes. Lime oil exfoliates dead skin with a slight peeling action enlivening the complexion. Long-term treatment with lime oil reduces broken capillaries and varicose veins, softens scar tissue and minimizes warts and corns. Lime oil can also strengthen brittle nails and hair.
French lavender oil relieves nervousness, anxiety, insomnia, it is suitable for all complexion types and aids in the healing of skin cells. It is used on burns, sun-damaged skin, wounds, and rashes. It can be used to treat acne, prevents scarring and stretch marks and reputedly slows the development of wrinkles. Of several fragrances tested by aromatherapy researchers, lavender was most effective at relaxing brain waves and reducing stress. Lavender oil has a soothing and calming effect on the nerves, relieving tension, depression, panic, hysteria and nervous exhaustion in general. Lavender tones the skin and is useful for all types of skin problems: abscesses, acne, oily skin, boils, burns, sunburn, wounds, psoriasis, lice, insect bites, stings and as an insect repellent. Lavender promotes skin healing and eases inflammation. Lavender is one of the few essentials oils that can be used neat on the skin, and is especially useful when treating a minor burn wound.
Cucumber Seed Oil is rich in both oleic and linoleic acids (two very important essential fatty acids) helping the skin prevent moisture loss and promoting the skin's elasticity.
