Our base soap recipe is blended with pure grapefruit and lime essential oils to help create an aroma to encourage balance. Grapefruit oil is a nutrient rich oil that can help aid oily and acne prone skin. Lime essential oil is known to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, astringent and antiseptic properties helping to promote skin rejuvenation. Grapefruit and Lime combined provides a deep cleansing effect, removing excess oils without drying the skin.
The bar produces a soft lather to cleanse, nourish and moisturize the skin.

Not suitable for children under 3 years. If pregnant or breastfeeding, please seek advice before using soap containing essential oils.
Handmade soap naturally has a high glycerine content, which is great for your skin – but is also means the soap attracts water. If left standing in water your soap will break down quickly.
To prolong the lifespan of your bar, we suggest it’s placed on a self-draining soap dish and away from the stream of water and allowed to dry (we stock a selection of suitable soap dishes).
Unused soaps need to be stored in a cool, dry place – preferably not the bathroom. A linen cupboard is great (plus, the soap will make your linens smell good.
As with any soap, keep it out of your eyes or it will sting (rinse thoroughly with plain water if this occurs) and discontinue use if irritation develops.
Please check the ingredients if you have allergies.
Be aware that some soaps have ingredients that could irritate sensitive skin (citrus etc).
Soap is slippery when wet, so take care not to step on a bar while in the shower.
