Organic Coconut Oil- A powerful moisturizer that is beneficial to restoring dry or flaking skin. Coconut oil contains antioxidant Vitamin E, known to protect skin cells from damage over time. The Vitamin E found in coconut oil soothes eczema, sunburn and psoriasis, and it has antiviral and anti fungal benefits Coconut oil contains 3 fatty acids: capric acid, lauric acid and caprylic acid.
Organic Olive Oil- Once referred to as liquid gold by Homer, Olive Oil has been used as a beauty and skin care remedy by the Phoenicians, Greeks, Egyptians and Romans. Today, it’s still prized for everything from erasing stretch marks and minimizing wrinkles to anti-aging therapy and deep hydration. One reason Olive Oil is so effective is that it’s rich in antioxidants, such as Vitamins A and E, polyphenols, phytoserols and the rare compound, Hydroxytyrosol, all of which help repair skin and neutralize the free radicals that cause skin damage. These antioxidants have a natural ability to stimulate cells and bring skin back to a firmer, healthier state.
Organic Sustainable Palm Oil- Palm oil is an edible vegetable oil derived from the mesocarp (reddish pulp) of the fruit of the oil palms, primarily the African oil palm. It is naturally reddish because of a high beta-carotene (Vitamin A) content. Palm oil is actually 15 times richer in Vitamin A than a carrot! Beta-Carotene (or Vitamin A) is a carotenoid, which is found in foods like carrots, tomatoes, and pumpkins. Carotenoids are well known for fighting the damage done to your skin due to UV ray exposure. This makes palm oil a wonderful ingredient that helps not only to prevent damage from sunburn, but to stop premature aging as well.Palm oil contains a high concentration of Vitamin E. This particular vitamin is very special because it contains tocotrienols. Tocotrienols are antioxidants within the Vitamin E family and are much rarer and much stronger than the common form of Vitamin E known as tocopherols. Tocotrienols are more effective in protecting the skin, for they are able to penetrate much deeper into the bottom most layers of your skin. Adding palm oil into any natural soap results in the soap having a pleasant lather with nice medium bubbles. Palm oil increases the hardness of the bar and helps it last longer.
Organic Shea Butter - A skin superfood that comes from the seeds of the fruit of the Shea (Karite) tree and that is naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F.

One compound in particular, lupeol cinnamate, has been found to reduce skin inflammation and even potentially help avoid skin mutations. This also makes it beneficial for some people with acne. Shea butter aids in the skinâ€™s natural collagen production and contains oleic, stearic, palmitic and linolenic acids that protect and nourish the skin to prevent drying. With long term use, many people report skin softening and strengthening as well as wrinkle reduction.
Organic Castor Oil - This pale-colored oil extracted from castor beans in highly therapeutic. In soap it acts as an emollient, humectant, and softener, adds and retains moisture and protects the skin. It is also used to treat dry, lacerated, and chapped skin, including psoriasis.

Activated Charcoal- Activated charcoal means the carbon is infused with oxygen and is prepared for human ingestion (in the case of poisoning or detox) and skincare products. This oxygenation creates a super porous surface, increasing its ability to absorb matter and toxins. Possibly the most absorbent cosmetic ingredient out there, activated charcoal is said to have the ability to absorb thousands of times its own weight.This super absorbency, plus antibacterial properties, makes activated charcoal an ideal ingredient for oily and acne prone skin types. It is used in acne products to draw out impurities, heal pimples, and prevent further breakouts. Also an anti-aging ingredient, activated charcoal is said to tighten pores and smooth the skin. It also reduces inflammation, which is significant in preventing premature aging.
