HERBAL & VEGETABLE-BASED SOAPS
Our sense of smell is closely linked to the receptors in the brain which regulate bodily functions. Of our five senses, "smell" is the one which has the closest link to our emotions. We kept this in mind when we designed our soaps.
Pure scents and gentle blends have been designed to invoke a pleasant bathing experience. Beyond the pleasantry of our senses, our soaps are made in such a way as to allow the natural glycerin to remain.
Our soaps contain 50% Olive oil - a very good moisturizer.
