Local goats milk from Abberton near Mersea: Goats milks PH is similar to human skin so it is less irritating and more easily absorbed. As with other milks, goats milk contains lactic acid, which is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). It helps to gently exfoliate dead skin cells and helps to brighten the skin.
Camellia oil: Used by the Japanese in their beauty regimes, camellia oil has incredible moisturising properties, which is why I use it in this soap and in the Camellia and Rose face cream. Camellia oil penetrates the skin as fast as water, leaving it feeling supple and hydrated.
This soap is fragranced with pure lavender essential oil because lavender is very balancing for the skin. There’s also tea tree, thyme and blue chamomile in there. These oils are helpful to sensitive or spot prone skin. The soap has a delicate herby fragrance which is similar to the Sea Salt Face Cleanser and Dead Sea Mud Mask.
