What’s in Pure Calendula Soap?
Calendula: is great for soothing irritated skin. It helps the skin to naturally develop collagen to help minor cuts and abrasions.
The calendula I use is freshly picked from my garden. I dry it in a low oven and then infuse the dried petals and flower heads in olive oil.
They stay in there for at least a month. That way all their goodness is extracted into the oil.
I then use calendula flower heads and petals to stir through the soap so that it gives it an extra boost of calendulary goodness.
Fairly traded, unrefined shea butter: This makes the soap extra luxurious. Plus shea butter is super moisturising and is great for reducing scarring!
Coconut Oil: is amazing for moisturising and is also a good base for a soap. It helps to harden the soap and creates loads of lovely bubbles.
Local Rapeseed Oil: Which is sourced from just over the border in Hertfordshire. Cold pressed rapeseed oil is deeply moisturising and high in vitamin E. It also contains omegas 3, 6 and 9 and these are all great for the skin.
Olive Oil: Is infused with calendula flowers from my garden. Olive oil makes a very gentle soap which leaves skin feeling soft and supple.
You’ll find that there’s no need to use hand cream or moisturiser after using the majority of my soaps but this one is particularly moisturising.
Pure calendula soap is unfragranced and it’s suitable for anyone with really dry, sensitive skin.
Each soap weighs approx 12og and is wrapped in handmade Himalayan lokta paper, a sustainable and fully compostable way of keeping your soap clean and fresh.
The paper even has calendula petals dried into it!
