R/8 Handcrafted Soap with Coffee Bean Powder & Cardamom Essential Oil - Body Scrub

13.00

The glycerine naturally produced by the cold-process soap-making (7 to 8%) combined with the (unheated) essential oils make this soap a product that truly cares for your skin.

Benefits
The transformation of shea butter and coconut oil by the soap-making reaction into glycerine ensures naturally strong moisturizing and softening benefits for your skin.
R/8 exfoliates your skin at the same time as it hydrates it.
The purifying and toning qualities of the cardamom combined with the abrasive properties of the coffee bean powder leave your skin soft and deeply nourished. The abrasiveness of the coffee bean powder is quite strong so we recommend it for your body rather than your face.
This soap’s extraordinary smell comes only from its ingredients: you literally breathe in the plants and flowers used to make it.

FULLY UNDERSTANDING R/8'S FORMULA:

  • Butyrospermum parkii butter (shea butter): recommended for its protective properties against skin dehydration. Readily and durably absorbed by the skin.

  • Cocos nucifera oil (coconut oil): coconut oil is obtained by expression from the dried inner flesh of the coconut, Cocos nucifera. Coconut oil is high in protective antioxidants and antibacterial fatty acids. It suits all skin types and is light, non-greasy and rapidly absorbed giving deep hydration and conditioning to skin, scalp and hair. Research shows it can improve skin elasticity helping prevent premature ageing and wrinkle formation.

  • Sodium hydroxide: also known as lye, is an essential ingredient in the soap making process. When sodium hydroxide beads or flakes are mixed with a liquid, a lye solution is created. This solution, when mixed with fats and oils, will cause a chemical reaction called saponification: the lye and oil molecules combine and chemically change into soap and glycerin - sodium hydroxide will have then completely disappeared.

  • Sesamum indicum seed oil (sesame seed oil): sesame seed oil is rich in essential fatty acids. Known for its softening and skin-rejuvenating properties, it penetrates quickly without being greasy.

  • Elettaria cardamomum seed oil (cardamom essential oil): known for its sweet, spicy and almost balsamic scent, cardamom is antiseptic and astringent and can therefore have a firming and toning effect on the skin.

  • Coffea arabica seed powder (coffee seed powder): is a finely ground, beautiful tan and light brown speckled powder that provides medium abrasion when incorporated into exfoliating products. It is chemically neutral, and 100% biodegradable.

  • Salvia sclarea oil (clary sage essential oil): Clary sage oil can help regulate oil production and reduce skin inflammation. Its scent is so appreciated it is actually the main component of Eau de Cologne.

  • Citral: used as a masking agent, citral is a major constituent of citronella oil and other plants of the Cymbopogon family. It is also present in the essential oils of verbena, orange, lemon, etc.

  • Geraniol: a fragrant oil component, geraniol is a natural compound of the essential oils of rose and palmarosa. Also present in essential oils of geranium, lemon and citronella.

  • Limonene: a fragrant oil component, limonene is naturally present in numerous essential oils (citrus rinds), pine oil and mint oil.

  • Linalool: an aromatic compound present in its natural state in the essential oils of lavender and lavandin, scots pine or peppermint, as well as many plant extracts.
