One of the main benefits of cold process soap making is having complete control over ingredients with no added detergents, which strip the skin of its natural oils.
There are so many natural ingredients that you can formulate for your soap recipes but here are our favourites for facial bars:
Rhassoul Clay has been used by several different cultures for over thousands of years and the word “rhassoul” comes from an Arabic word that means “to wash”.
Benefits of Rhassoul clay:
Rhassoul clay is full of metallic elements that carry a negative charge. This magnetic energy draws out positively charged toxins and bonds to them so that when you wash the clay away, the toxins purportedly go with it.
For this reason, rhassoul clay is used as a detoxifier for skin and for hair.
Precautions when using Rhassoul Clay:
Rhassoul clay is safe for most people to use, with some exception.
Avoid if you have allergy to metallic elements like aluminium or magnesium. Not suitable if you are prone to scalp, eczema or other chronic skin conditions.
Where to get Rhassoul Clay:
You can get Rhassoul Clay from Sugar & Spice studio.
Avocado oil is one of few edible oils not derived from seeds; it is pressed from the fleshy pulp surrounding the avocado pit.
The absorbent oil is thought to have numerous benefits for your skin, like moisturizing dry hands or acting as a natural sunblock. You can apply avocado oil directly to your skin or mix it with your favorite soap or skincare recipes.
