It has an earthy, sweet and citrusy scent and is ideal for use in the shower, bath or on the sink. Super bubbly and creamy, you won’t find it drying for your skin. Love to b’s natural chamomile and calendula soap is cured for a minimum of 6 weeks to ensure that it is hard, long-lasting and mild enough for sensitive skin.

Description

Who should use this product?

Love to b’s natural Chamomile and Calendula soap is super mild and cured for a long time to ensure it is suitable for sensitive skin.

 

How is this product made? 

We use a traditional way of soap-making called ‘cold process’, a method that has remained essentially unchanged for thousands of years. Firstly, hard oils and butters are gently melted and mixed with the soft liquid oils. Natural colours and botanicals are added at this point which gives each soap its unique, Love to b style. A lye solution (derived from sea water) is mixed in with the oils resulting in a gradual thickening of the mixture. This process is called saponification which completely neutralises the lye.

The mixture is poured into moulds and hardens over a couple of days until it is ready to be unmoulded, hand-cut and placed on a rack in our humidity controlled curing room. After one week, soaps are stamped with the Love to b logo and bevelled to make them easier to hold in your hand. Soaps are turned frequently to ensure that they stay the correct shape and dry in a uniform way.

 

Hero Ingredients

Shea butter: Shea butter is packed with vitamins and fatty acids. Because of this it is an excellent skin moisturiser. It adds moisture without feeling oily or greasy on the skin. Also, it has amazing healing and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Cocoa butter: Cocoa butter hydrates and moisturises while using its many antioxidants to fight off the signs of aging. It is thought to have healing properties and calms redness and irritation. It also smells wonderfully chocolaty!

Castor oil: Castor oil is highly moisturising and promotes overall skin health. As well as this, it has powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties making it a good choice for those with acne.

 

Essential Oils

May Chang: May chang essential oil has an almost lemony scent with a spicy, fruity undertone. It has mild astringent properties and is an excellent cleanser making it good for oily, acne prone skin.

 

Natural Botanical Colours

Turmeric root: We use powdered turmeric root to make this soap a vibrant yellow colour.

 

Calendula: We use calendula powder and petals throughout the soap which gives a mild exfoliating effect.

 

How to use this product

Rub our natural Chamomile and Calendula soap between your hands or onto a shower scrunchie to create a bubbly lather. Rinse well with fresh clean water. For your bar to last as long as possible, we recommend keeping it dry between uses. You can do this by using a slatted soap dish or by standing it up on its end.

We sell a beautiful bamboo soap dish that is designed to keep your soap dry and allow it to last for much longer.

When your soap gets too small, don’t throw it away! Why not use one of our exfoliating sisal soap bags to collect the pieces and make your soap last even longer.
