Coconut and Tea Tree Soap
Our handmade, small batch, cold process soap is pure old school luxury. Made using the time-honoured method with purified water, oil and lye, this process of soapmaking has been employed for thousands of years, and remains unchanged since the time of Babylon, in 2800BC.
This batch of just 20 bars of soap contains the following ingredients:
Saponified Coconut Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Cocoa Butter and Tea Tree Oil
Three reasons to switch to cold process soap.
• This soap is rich and creamy with approximately 35 grams of Cocoa Butter in each bar. The major oil is coconut which is the best lathering of all oils. It is the only vegetable oil which lathers in seawater, for example. Unlike supermarket soap, this will moisturise your skin, rather than dry it out.
• Supermarket soap is made from chemicals that you do not want on your skin or being absorbed into your body. They will only temporarily make your skin feel soft, and long-term use will cause dryness, itching and flaking. (1)
• Tea Tree oil is proven to combat various disease-causing bacteria, including E. Coli, Streptococcus, Mycobacterium avium, and crucially Streptococcus pneumonia. (2)

1) Many of these chemicals are carcinogenic and bio-accumulative, they never leave your body once absorbed. For example, nearly all commercial soap is made using melt and pour chemical process and contains Methylisothiazolinone, a chemical proven to cause neurodegenerative disorders and seizures. This is just one of the dodgy ingredients in your storebought soap, there are many more.
