Organic Coconut Soap Bar 100g
We love this pure and simple soap bar. It is ideal for the most sensitive skin and perfect for delicate dry skin. Formulated for its purity and goodness, this unscented recipe includes generous amounts of organic coconut oil and fair trade, organic shea butter for moisturising bubbles.
Fairtrade Coconuts The beautiful organic coconut oil used in our soap, is fairly traded with Indonesian island communities throughout the Pacific Ocean. All the oil comes from family farms only, where individual families work together to collect and process small amounts of coconuts on a daily basis. An integral part of tropical island life, coconut production forms a pivotal role in the lives of coastal communities, of which many are now endangered. By purchasing this fair trade coconut oil we support not only the livelihoods of island communities, but their language and cultures, their forests and reefs.
This natural soap bar is kind and gentle and is suitable for sensitive skin. Made with 100% natural and organic vegetable oils, it is completely unscented. Free from SLS, artificial fragrances and foaming agents, this is a great choice for sensitive skin types. Our short but sweet ingredient list will keep your skin happy from top to toe, with natural bubbles!
Coconut oil can be used as an excellent all over body moisturiser. It helps to reduce chronic skin dryness and aids the removal of the outer layer of dead skin cells, making the skin smoother. The small molecular structure of coconut oil allows for easy absorption through the skin, giving it a soft, smooth texture. While doing this the coconut oil strengthens and maintains skin health.
Palm Free Soap
Most soaps are made with palm oil because it is cheap and readily available. According to the World Wildlife Fund, an area the equivalent size of 300 football fields of rainforest is cleared each hour to make way for palm oil production. The demand for cheap palm oil results in vast deforestation – trees are cleared to make way for mass palm tree plantations to fulfil the requirements of the palm oil industry. Many baby Orangutans are left orphaned and suffer burns and skin problems as a result of the forest fires (the fires are started to destroy forest to make way for palm plantations). Choosing palm free soaps is a forest and orangutan friendly alternative.
