unM SOAP Lemongrass
Our 5 ounce Lemongrass Soap bar is our most luxurious formula, and is made from extra-virgin olive oil, organic coconut oil, locally produced tallow, organic goat milk, and pure essential oils of lemongrass and may chang.
This combination produces a long-lasting soap bar with a creamy nourishing lather that is highly moisturizing, naturally anti-microbial, and rich in antioxidants.
This formula combines the gentleness of of Colorado Castile, the creaminess of April’s Goat Milk, and the foaminess of Coconut Castile. Lemongrass and May Chang essential oils add an uplifting, calming scent as well as antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Olive oil – high in oleic, linoleic and palmitic acids. It is highly moisturizing and naturally anti-bacterial. Olive oil is also rich in antioxidants such as vitamins A and E, and contains chlorophyll.
Coconut oil – contains lauric acid which is naturally anti-viral. In addition, it gives soap a creamy fast-foaming lather and is beneficial for dry skin by reducing protein loss.
Tallow – is high in oleic, palmitic, and stearic acids. This gives a creamy lather and good conditioning properties. It also results in a harder bar, facilitating longer use. Glycerin from tallow is chemically closer to the naturally-occurring oils on your own skin, and thus can be less drying than soap made from 100% plant-based oils. We render our own tallow from beef fat obtained at local butchers. In addition to preventing a useful substance from otherwise being wasted, we are able to produce the purest, cleanest tallow possible.
Goat milk – especially high in vitamin A, which helps to repair damaged skin. It also contains capric/caprylic triglyceride which is an excellent moisturizer, and has anti-microbial properties. Lactic acid (an alpha-hydroxy acid) gently removes dead skin cells and stimulates collagen and elastin production. Our goat milk comes specifically from April the alpine goat courtesy of Laughing Buck Farm!
Lemongrass Essential Oil – contains citral, an antioxidant that is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal. It also reduces anxiety, helps insomnia, and fights yeast infections.
May Chang Essential Oil (litsea cubeba)- natural deodorant and astringent, and has antiseptic, antimicrobial, antifungal, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties. It has also been shown to reduce negative emotions and promote relaxation and restful sleep.
Our scented soaps are made with organic steam-distilled essential oils only: no artificial fragrances.
