Should you wash your face with soap?

There is a common misconception that you should not use soap on your face because it makes your skin dry and strips the skin on your face of natural oils. While this is true for many commercially available synthetic soaps, this is not true for natural soaps.

Most natural soap contains a moisturising ingredient - vegetable glycerin! In the manufacturing of cold-process soap, vegetable glycerin is a naturally occurring by-product of the saponification process.

Vegetable Glycerin is a humectant which helps keep moisture in the skin and absorbs moisture from the air to provide extra hydration.

Natural glycerin-rich soap is vegan-friendly, an excellent option for sensitive skin, and perfect for washing your face.

Our soaps are super moisturising, vegan, with all-natural ingredients, fragrance-free, plastic-free, cruelty-free, parabens free and SLS-free.

Currently, only one of our soap bars is palm-free, and we will launch a new collection of Palm-Free soaps this summer. For those soap bars that do contain palm oil, we can assure you that it is RSPO (ethically sourced) palm.

So, why does natural, botanical soap make the best face wash?

It contains no nasty skin-drying chemicals or additives, so it's kinder to the skin.

Mass-produced soaps can contain ingredients that dry out the skin leaving it sore and irritated – which is why many people have avoided using them on the face over the years.

If you've switched from commercial to natural soap, here are a few tips to help make your soap bars last longer:

To prevent soap from becoming soggy, use a good-quality draining deck/soap dish, and allow your soap to dry out completely between uses.

Using soap bars in the shower, you should store them on a slatted shower shelf and keep them away from shower spray.

Store all-natural soap bars out of direct sunlight.

Allow your soap bar to completely dry out between uses - fresh air circulating in the bathroom will allow the soap to dry and last longer.

To extend the life of your soap bar, use a cotton washcloth rather than rubbing the bar all over yourself.

Use your new soap within six months of purchase.

Store new and unused soap in a dry place at room temperature.

Place new soap bars in your lingerie or linen drawer to keep everything smelling divine.
