This is no ordinary soap.
This soap is really beautiful. It looks like sculpture, smells divine and feels so good on your skin. Each bar is designed with love & passion, it's a piece of art for your bathroom.
Created by two young woman from Raglan, Casey and Ayla who believe that 'within nature resides extraordinary healing and therapeutic powers'. Their soaps are all-natural, palm oil free, vegan friendly and locally hand made in small batches in Raglan, New Zealand.
Casey is a trained naturopath and every bar contains beautiful and effective combinations of essential oils, clays and herbs.
Their soap is made by an ancient technique, the cold process, which is better for the environment and healthier for the skin. Only the very best natural products are used in each handmade soap bar so you know it's going to be good for you and the planet.
But as their soap bars are full of natural plant based oils, they do need a little extra care. Before you use your bars, keep them in a nice and dry place. Once in use, keep your soap on a well-drained surface or soap dish. The more it drys out between uses the more time it can spend with you.
The beautiful soaps available are -
Earth Creature - Native kawakawa & kānuka, fir needle, elemi and amyris synchronise with walnut shell flour to form this earthy, warm bar. It's stimulating and warming, encouraging blood flow and detoxification of the skin. Kawakawa and kānuka’s involvement means that it is also a protective, yet soothing warrior, with anti microbial, anti fungal and anti inflammatory actions.
