What’s in Calendula & Oat Soap?

Calendula: is great for soothing irritated skin.  It helps the skin to naturally develop collagen to help minor cuts and abrasions.

I pick calendula flowers directly from my garden.  Once picked I leave them for a while (for any little bugs to escape) then I dry them in a low oven. Once dry I infuse them in olive oil for around 3 months.  This is to ensure that every bit of goodness has infused into the oil.

I also stir through calendula petals in the soap to give it an extra boost of calendula goodness.

Here’s a blog I wrote about Calendula and how I use it in my products.

Organic, gluten free oats: they soothe skin, calm redness and in this soap they provide a gentle scrubbing action to get rid of dead skin.
Fairly traded, unrefined shea butter: gives this lovely soap an extra touch of luxury.  The organic shea butter I use is super moisturising and great for reducing scarring!
Coconut Oil: is an incredible moisturiser and is great as a soap base as it hardens the bar and makes it last longer.  It also helps to create a really bubbly bar of soap.
Local Rapeseed Oil: sourced from just over the border in Hertfordshire.  Cold pressed rapeseed oil deeply moisturises and is high in vitamin E.  It also contains omegas 3, 6 and 9.  These are all great for helping your skin.
Olive Oil: I infuse this organic extra virgin olive oil with the calendula flowers from my garden. Olive oil makes a very gentle soap which leaves skin feeling soft and supple.

    What a beautiful soap! Not only does it smell fabulous it also leaves your skin feeling soft and fragrant and not tight like other soaps i have used. A firm favourite of mine.

  2. Pamela

    By now ( February ) my hands are normally very sore and I go through loads of hand cream, but since discovering these wonderful soaps I have used hand cream very rarely.
    This soap is fantastic, my hands are not suffering like they normally do.

  3. Janette

    Within 2 days of using antibacterial handwash, the backs of my hands looked scalded red and were dry and peeling. I bought the calendula soap a week later after seekign advice from the maker and started using it as soon as it arrived. It feels like a real treat, smells beautiful and produces plenty of gentle foaming bubbles so I know I’m cleaning my hands properly. I didn’t need to use any moisturiser after and the redness and has subsided and my skin feels soft again. I absolutely love this soap and it’s perfect for this current period of handwashing as often as twice an hour. (April 2020)

    This soap is lovely, I use it in the shower and for hand washing, leaves skin feeling so soft and lovely and is lasting ages. A firm favourite.

    This is my absolute favourite product. The soap is gorgeous to use and has been a real boon for my dry, sensitive skin. I love the extra “scrubbiness” from the oats. I wouldn’t be without it.
