Good for your health, Good for your skin!
Special occasions call for fun new treats. Celebrating Singapore’s 57 th National Day, you might be looking for ways to spice up your usual soap-making recipes.
One of the easiest ways to treat yourself, as well as your friends and family, is by
including new powders in your soaps. Some of the newest powders in our studio are perfect for this!
A popular plant used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), it offers highly beneficial properties as a powder that make it perfect for soap-makers.
It has been used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including eczema, hives, rashes, and psoriasis. The powder, when mixed and applied to the skin, works to soothe and repair irritated
and inflamed areas.
Gromwell powder also contains high antimicrobial properties, making it a great addition
to soaps. Being antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral, it works as a natural ingredient to fight
common viruses and protect the body.
Coptis Root Powder
Known for its bright yellow color, Coptis has been known to clear the effects of being in damp climates in Singapore.
Externally, it works similarly to Gromwell powder in soothing skin inflammations.
The brightness of Coptis powder makes it an easy way to add a pop of color to your
designs or create beautiful yellow soaps.
Often overlooked as a salad vegetable, cucumbers can be used for its hydration benefits in skincare. It is filled with antioxidants, including caffeic acid and folic acid, that help boost the
production of collagen and slow premature aging.
Cucumber can also soothe sunburns and reduce swelling or puffiness in the skin.
The cooling properties already make it a popular ingredient for skincare, but it works beautifully in soaps as well.
By using natural ingredients in your soaps, you’re not only able to customise them to fit
your wants and needs. Bar soaps are increasingly common as people search for more sustainable products. In co-working spaces like our studio, you get the chance to try many new things without needing to worry about buying equipment and storing ingredients.
