unM SOAP Lavender
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!
Lavender Essential Oil – this scent has a calming effect which may aid in relaxation and the reduction of anxiety and stress. Lavender also has antibacterial and antiseptic properties, and can aid healing of insect bites, sunburns, or skin infections.
Our scented soaps are made with organic steam-distilled essential oils only: no artificial fragrances.
