WHY WE LOVE THIS
Tea Tree essential oil // Shown to have antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal, and immune stimulating properties. Studies have shown that topical application of Tea Tree essential oil may help alleviate acne by killing the bacteria that causes breakouts. This oil is made from organically grown tea tree in Australia.
Neem oil // Neem is a rich, fragrant, and potent solve for troubled and irritated skin. The anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties in neem oil are only a portion of what this miracle healer has been used for. In India, neem is considred a sacred tree and has been used as a go-to-remedy for a variety of ailments for thousands of years. The oil and other parts of the tree are popular ingredients to use in Ayurvedic practices for a multitude of ailments. This neem oil is virgin and cold-pressed from organically grown neem in India.
Dead Sea salt // Unlike regular sea salt which is simply sodium chloride, Dead Sea salt is rich in minerals like magnesium, calcium and bromide. These minerals can help address some of the root causes of problematic skin and when absorbed into the skin, can stimulate detoxification, reduce redness, and improve skin hydration.

We love multi-tasking skincare products because they keep our skincare routine simple and help reduce our environmental footprint - although formulated specifically as a facial cleanser, this soap is effective head-to-toe. Great as a face, body and hand soap - some customers have even reported it works great as a shampoo bar!
Pro Tip: When it comes to blackheads and breakouts, it's often believed that drying or scrubbing skin "squeaky clean" will help clear skin. Drying the skin can actually do the opposite - it can cause skin barrier damage and aggravate the issue. The best way to address congestion and breakouts is through nourishment that promotes healthy skin without clogging pores or decimating the skin microbiome. This soap will not dry the skin like conventional bar soap and is a great start to a nourishing routine. If your skin has a tendency to be dry or sensitive, we recommend only using this soap as an evening cleanser.
