Honey is life – Natural Handcrafted Soap Company

The Kattunayakan are tribal people who live deep in the forests of the Nilgiris ImageBiosphere Reserve in South India. They collect and sell wild honey. Today, settlers from the crowded plains and eviction from the forest reserve threaten both their land and their traditions. Mari Marcel Thekaekara accompanied a group of Kattunayakan on one of their forays into the jungle. -
Honey is a sweet treat for skin
   Honey is also a humectant, so it helps retain moisture on the skin in much the same way as glycerin.
Cleopatra is said to have ruled Egypt with an iron fist. Apparently, it was also a smooth fist, since she was one of the more famous people in history to use honey for its skin-enhancing properties. In fact, Cleopatra’s legendary milk and honey baths are just one of many historical examples of people using honey to pamper their complexions. While Cleopatra didn’t know why honey softened her skin, new research suggests the queen of the Nile was definitely onto something.
Manufacturers have used honey in everything from hand lotions and moisturizers to bar soaps and bubble baths.
One reason they use honey is for its wholesome, all-natural image; more and more consumers are demanding cosmetics and personal care products made from natural ingredients. In the case of honey, however, image is just the beginning.
First, honey is a humectant, which means it attracts and retains moisture.
This makes honey a natural fit in a variety of moisturizing products including cleaners, creams, shampoos and conditioners. Honey also acts as an anti-irritant, making it suitable for sensitive skin and baby care products.
Honey’s prospects in skincare are looking even sweeter; research is currently underway to develop a process using honey to create alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). AHAs are an important ingredient in many skin creams and moisturizers because they help exfoliate the skin. Increased exfoliation, or renewal of the skin cells, can give skin a younger, more vibrant look.

How to Select a Facial – Soap to Buy
Not all facial soaps are created equal! Many people have been using the same type of soap for many years but because our skin changes with time, that brand of soap might not be right for us anymore.
We are going to look at choosing a soap to buy according to skin type.

For anyone with dry or sensitive skin or a skin condition such as psoriasis or eczema, goats milk soap is a great choice.
Goat milk contains lactic acid which is a natural Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA). AHAs are used in expensive Beauty Salon treatments such as skin peels which remove the top layers of skin to reveal younger looking skin beneath.
The Best Soap for Dry Skin
The surface of dry skin has flakes of skin on the surface which make the skin uneven and it therefore looks dull because it does not reflect light evenly.
Older people are more likely to have dry skin and long for a dewy complexion, younger looking skin that looks almost luminous because of the way the smooth surface reflects light.

Olive soap is great for removing makeup too and can be beneficial in skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, skin rashes and acne.
In addition, if your skin is sensitive, it is good to know that olive oil is hypoallergenic so you are unlikely to get reaction problems from using it.

About the Benefits of Orange Essential Oil in Soaps

Orange essential oil is an ingredient commonly found in natural soap products to provide distinctive qualities and aroma to an everyday cleaning agent.
Essential oils can be pleasant, but also toxic when used at certain concentrations; however, consumer products typically dilute the strength of the oil and test it for safety before marketing it. Many advertisers may claim certain advantages, though you should be aware of the facts before purchasing or using any soaps made with orange essential oil.

The Facts

All essential oils are highly concentrated from their sources, so you receive every drop of benefit the original source has to offer. Orange essential oil is carefully distilled from the orange part of the peel using fine oils as the carrier. When orange essential oil is combined with natural soap ingredients, you have access to a cleaning product offering a pleasant scent.

She moved to Brazil in 1917 from hers home in Toscany where she had trained to make essential oils from the plants.



Handmade soap
Opened a small shop in the then fashionable residential area of Brazil, Sao Paulo, and attracted the custom of many wealthy families. She noticed that the Sao Paulo upper classes cultivated a delicate white complexion whereas a tanned face was associated with the working class who toiled in the outdoors.

Why Handcrafted Soap?
Why you may ask, should I buy handmade soap when I can get more soap for less money at the grocery store?
Generally, the commercial soaps carried at most chain stores, etc. are full of chemical additives, additives that not only dry out your *skin but can lead to rashes and other irritations.This is not only because of the synthetic additives in the handcrafted soap but also because most soap companies take the glycerin out of their *soap. The commercial soap bars that line most grocery stores€™ shelves are actually synthetic detergents. While that's great for your dishes, it's not very good for your skin.
Handmade Soap is soap in its true, pure form. It gently cleanses away excess oils and bacteria, but doesn't strip your skin of its natural oils.
If the commercial soap company does put in some natural ingredients along with its synthetic ones, they do so in such small quantities as for it to be inconspicuous in the soap. Its main purpose is to catch the eye of the consumer and give them the illusion that this soap is more natural. If you read the ingredient labels though, the soap is still primarily made with synthetic ingredients.
Using commercial soaps over time leave your skin dried out, or way to oily ,and feeling like its never clean. Natural handmade soap, that only uses natural ingredients, can restore the moisture to your skin, while still getting you clean. You will be amazed at the difference!
*Handmade soap is a cleanser made with simple ingredients that are good for your skin . In the handcrafted soap making process, oils and fats are combined with lye to produce soap and glycerin. Some people may question the use of lye in handmade soap. The fact is that all soap is made with lye. What needs to be made clear is that once the process of saponification is complete, the lye and oil molecules have combined and chemically changed into soap and glycerin. ALL bar soaps are made with lye, however, when made correctly, there is NO LYE remaining in the final bar of soap.
Whether your soap is manufactured by large corporations, or smaller handcrafted soap makers, the above rings true, regardless. Lye must be used to make the soap, but there should never be any remaining lye in the final bar to hurt the skin. Saponification is the chemical reaction created by combining these oils or fats with lye and water.
Glycerin is naturally produced during the soap making process. In fact, pound for pound, glycerin costs more than soap, which is why most soap companies remove the glycerin from the soap and sell it to manufacturers of lotion. We do not remove the glycerin from our handcrafted soap, so when you purchase soap made by us, it contains all of the naturally occurring glycerin. With our handcrafted soap you get a fabulous cleanser and a moisturizer all in one, which was created for top moisturizing ability.
*Usage and Storage Since handcrafted soap has no synthetic chemical preservatives but has natural preservatives such as , grape seed oil extract or Vitamin E, your bar of handcrafted soap needs more care and diligence to insure a long life. Handcrafted soap is best stored out of water so that it air dries. Rest your soap on a draining soap dish or stand it on its side, out of the spray range of the shower head . If left in water, handcrafted soap tends to dissolve due to the soap and glycerine molecules that wash clean with water.
