This recipe for this beautifully simple new soap has been designed by an experienced cosmetic chemist to boost it's ability to provide effective handwashing.
Soap is naturally antimicrobial - it is cleansing, by the physical action of washing and rinsing, thereby removing surface contamination, and it has surfactant properties that are chemically damaging to microbes.
ALL soaps exhibit these properties and are vital in terms of the increased hygiene requirements during the current outbreak of corona virus.
It makes sense, however, that the instant sanitising effect of soap can be enhanced by the further addition of ingredients, that stay on the skin, even after rinsing to provide additional protection between washing.
Our personal choice of additional antimicrobial agents is a combination of Lavender and Tea tree essential oils. So not only will your hands be left clean and soft, they will have the gentle scent of these refreshing oils as well.
Ingredients: sodium olivate (olive oil), sodium cocoate (coconut oil), sodium shea butterate (shea butter), sodium castorate (castor oil), aqua, glycerine, lavandula augustifolia (lavender) essential oil, melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) leaf oil, linalool*, limonene*, d-limonene*
*Occurs naturally in essential oils
