SOAPS THAT PACK A PUNCH
Certain ingredients can give your soap extra oomph. Look out for these if you want a soap that does more than just clean.
It’s said the Egyptian queen Cleopatra bathed in milk as part of her beauty routine. Filling your tub with milk is a little over the top, so rather opt for soap that contains this ingredient. Milk soaps such as goat’s milk can be good for your skin. It soothes it and gives you a luxurious feel.
Oatmeal isn’t just a healthy breakfast food, it also has wonderful beauty benefits. Oatmeal soap is great for people with dry skin as it gets rid of excess oil without drying out the skin.
Tea tree oil is a natural antiseptic that can also help reduce oily skin. This ingredient is perfect for people with acne, shiny or oily skin.
Almond oil contains vitamin E and people with dry or irritated skin can benefit from its soothing and moisturising properties. Soaps that contain ground almond shells are perfect for exfoliating and removing dead skin cells.
Aloe vera gel is fantastic for your skin. When used in soap it gets rid of oil and dirt, but it’s also calming and soothing, making it great for sensitive skin.
