This soap’s extraordinary smell comes only from its ingredients: you literally breathe in the plants and flowers used to make it.

MORE DETAILS ON R/3'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.
Sesamum indicum seed oil (sesame seed oil)
Sesame seed oil is rich in essential fatty acids. Known for its softening and skin-rejuvenating properties, it penetrates quickly without being greasy.
Pelargonium graveolens oil (geranium essential oil)
Geranium oil is used for its toning and balancing effect on the skin. It also gives a sweet, rose-like aroma to soaps. The oil is antiseptic and astringent, which helps to even out colour and oiliness by constricting the tissues to balance sebum production and circulation.
Anthemis nobilis flower (chamomile flowers)
Used directly as a flower in our soap, chamomile is commonly used to relieve inflammatory skin conditions and calm sensitive skin. It provides some antioxidant protection and can be used to soothe, moisturize and inhibit the growth of bacteria.
