MORE DETAILS ON R/4'S BOTANICAL ORGANIC FORMULA
Recommended for its protective properties against skin dehydration. Readily and durably absorbed by the skin.
Cocos nucifera oil (coconut oil)
Coconut oil is obtained by expression from the dried inner flesh of the coconut, Cocos nucifera. Coconut oil is high in protective antioxidants and antibacterial fatty acids. It suits all skin types and is light, non-greasy and rapidly absorbed giving deep hydration and conditioning to skin, scalp and hair. Research shows it can improve skin elasticity helping prevent premature ageing and wrinkle formation.
Also known as lye, is an essential ingredient in the soap making process. When sodium hydroxide beads or flakes are mixed with a liquid, a lye solution is created. This solution, when mixed with fats and oils, will cause a chemical reaction called saponification: the lye and oil molecules combine and chemically change into soap and glycerin - sodium hydroxide will have then completely disappeared.
Bellis perennis flower (daisy flower)
Used directly in its flower form in our soap, daisy flower is considered a gentle, yet highly efficient natural skin lightener. Its uses can be traced back to ancient Rome when it was used by surgeons for its astringent properties.
Elettaria cardamomum seed oil (cardamom essential oil)
Known for its sweet, spicy and almost balsamic scent, cardamom is antiseptic and astringent and can therefore have a firming and toning effect on the skin.
A fragrant oil component, limonene is naturally present in numerous essential oils (citrus rinds), pine oil and mint oil.
An aromatic compound present in its natural state in the essential oils of lavender and lavandin, scots pine or peppermint, as well as many plant extracts.
