Face Wash is In!
You may have noticed that we have added new Face Wash to the site!
Before now, we’ve always just had body bars, but now we have specially formulated soaps for your facial needs! Our initial face washes include an Activated Charcoal wash, as well as a Avocado wash, both of which are 100% natural!
Our Activated Charcoal face wash is deep black (photo above), due to using finely powdered charcoal. The charcoal is not purely for color though, but instead acts as a detoxing agent. Charcoal is a very porous material, and is often used to pull impurities away. For example, the main component of a water filter is charcoal! It is not uncommon in Japan to put a simple stick of charcoal in a glass of water to pull out the impurities. Activated charcoal can even be used in the case of poisoning, and when ingested it can absorb many types of non-acidic toxins—so it is not a bad idea to keep some in your kitchen or medicine cabinet! Not only does this facial soap contain activated charcoal, it also has Bentonite clay. Bentonite clay is formed from volcanic ash and is also very porous, like charcoal, pulling out impurities. It is great for clarifying your skin and shrinking your pores as well. Other star ingredients in this bar include olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, cocoa butter, castor oil, and essential oils of May Chang, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, and Lavender!
Our Avocado face wash is completely different from the former, and is not quite as clarifying, although it does a great job at cleaning your face and leaving it feel soft and replenished. This bar is special because it contains the whole avocado, from pit to pulp. We use the rich avocado puree, as well as vitamin-packed finely ground avocado pit. We made sure that the ground avocado pit wouldn’t feel scratchy on your sensitive face, but rather it does the job so gently that you will hardly notice it. Like the Activated Charcoal wash, this wash also contains clay, but instead of Bentonite, we used French Green Clay, which helps give it the avocado green color. French Green Clay is also great for the face, helping to remove dead skin cells, making your face feel polished! Our other main ingredients of this soap include avocado oil, coconut oil, olive oil, mango butter, castor oil, and lemongrass essential oil.
In the future we intend to add a few more types of facial soaps to the line, so keep on the lookout for when we add some more!
