Soap is a beauty dirty word. We are told not to use it, as it will dry out our skin! Soap is seen as old fashioned and bad for us, and lots of people use shower gels and facial washes instead.
But here at Fragrant Earth, we want to re-invent the idea of beauty soaps.
Our soaps are natural, and have no nasty chemicals. And they are anything but drying!
Our Bio-Soap is our truly natural and organic soap, and uses natural ingredients, real fruit juices and mud! My favorite product from this range is Apple! It smells like you could bite into it; but don't as it is for washing with, not eating!
We also have a Natural Soap range which is made with natural fragrances, herbal extracts, seeds, seaweeds and natural/food grade colours. These are really good value, as they come in a large block. These soaps, and the Bio Soaps are both made in Poland, where they still use traditional herbs and manufacturing techniques.
Did you know that a lot of soaps that claim to be olive oil soaps actually don't contain much olive oil? Our Olivos soaps are made from 100% high quality olive oil, and are made with love in a Turkish factory which has been hand-making soaps for 300 years! Our Olivos soaps come in many different scents, including one For Men, one For Women, and lots of floral scents. They have lovely magical sounding names such as Rumi and Mystic Nile, and come in beautiful packages that make them great for gifting.
I have tried two Olivos soaps, Ottoman Bath Soap Lotus, and Olive Oil Soap With Rose.
The Olivos Ottoman Bath Soap is a beauty soap which comes in beautiful packaging, which makes it a perfect gift. The lotus scent is gorgeous, fresh yet exotic. I used it on my face and body, and it left my skin feeling soft, and smelling lovely.
The Olive Oil Soap with Rose is also amazing! I really love the scent of rose, and this soap has a really pretty natural rose smell. I really liked the packaging, and it was almost too pretty to rip off. I liked the delicate pink stripes, and the shiny image of a beautiful rose that adorns the wrapping.
When you do finally open it, you find a pretty image of a rose on the soap. I have used the soap quite a few times now, and the image is still there, so you will be able to enjoy it decorating your bathroom for some time.
I enjoy using this soap, it smells of beautiful roses, and it leaves the skin soft. I have mostly used it on my face, and I have found that it is not drying at all, in fact it is very mostiurising, because of the natural olive oil that was used to create it.
We also have a wonderful Amber Soap, which is organic, super mositurising and made from Polish Amber, which is the best in the world. Amber can provide your body with the negative irons that can neutralise the positive ones that electronic devices such as phones and computers emit. Positive ions are molecules that are largely responsible for the headache and fatigue that you can get while working at the computer, or using your phone all day! The Slavic and Baltic peoples saw Amber as trapped sunshine. What a lovely idea! Our ReviSun Amber soap is sure to add some sunshine to your day.
For all the men out there, we have an amazing For Him Plant Scrub Soap, which is made from organic palm oil, coconut oil, olive oil (extra virgin) jojoba oil, avocado, sweet almond and shea butter. It is nourishing and protecting, and is chip-based to gently remove dead skin, and dirt, paints, grease and oils.
If you want some extra luxury, why not try our gorgeous Argan & Goats soap? It comes in a lovely gold packaging, and has a gold glittery stamp on the actual soap. The Argan Oil and goats' milk that is used to make the soap makes it soothing, cleansing, brightening and moisturising on all skin types. Argan Oil and goats' milk are two beauty miracle ingredients that work wonders for skin, and now you can have them together in one beautiful beauty soap!
Our Baby Body soap has a comforting and relaxing smell, and is perfect for washing babies before sleep. It also contains our softening, natural olive oil.
So, what do you think? Will you be ditching your soap-free lotions and trying some lovely natural soap from Fragrant Earth?
