Here are a few health benefits to those I mention above:
Activated charcoal in soap theoretically binds to dirt and oil on the skin and helps clear out pores and is a perfect antioxidant. Activated charcoal effectively cleanses the skin, unclogs pores, removes deeper impurities, and dead skin cells. The result is smooth, supple, and even-toned skin. Charcoal for men's skin has become one of the best men skin care methods. It has an obvious cool factor, and more importantly, it effectively absorbs bacteria, poisons, and dirt, leaving your skin clear and flawless.
Bergamot has several compounds in this oil to have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and when combined with Activated Charcoal they alleviate stress and lift the mood. You may be familiar with the particular scent and flavor of Earl Grey tea. Its notable taste is created by blending Bergamot essential oil with black tea. This calming and familiar scent is from a lesser-known member of the citrus family and has some amazing therapeutic benefits. Bergamot essential oil is responsible for increases in skin collagen content and more.
Lemongrass essential oil has anti-inflammatory and astringent properties which make it an excellent essential oil for use in skin care products. By calming inflammation and strengthening elastin, lemongrass can potentially assist in combating aging or sagging skin. It is also known to have antibacterial properties.
Orange. I just love the zesty smell of a freshly squeezed orange! This sweet citrus essential oil is harvested from the skin of the fruit and offers a variety of therapeutic properties. According to some studies, orange essential oil can provide effective relief from internal and external inflammation. This makes it a reliable agent in combating skin irritations. It has also been shown to help relax muscle spasms. In recent studies, just inhaling orange essential oil has been shown to relieve symptoms of those with stress related issues. While also invigorating, orange essential oil is a powerful relaxant.
Tea tree oil has long been recognized for its antibacterial, antifungal, and antiseptic qualities. It is now known to be an effective acne fighting agent with fewer toxic side effects than benzoyl peroxide. Tea tree essential oil also has the ability to fight off yeasts and fungi that commonly afflict the body. These unique qualities allow tea tree to foster healthy hair as well. In addition, tea tree oil contains anti-inflammatory properties that work to calm excess inflammation. Tea tree essential oil smells clean and fresh making it an invigorating additive for bath products.
Hemp. Full of omega-6 essential fatty acids which can be a powerful anti-inflammatory agent. Many people with conditions like psoriasis, eczema, and acne find some relief when using hemp soap. It may also be beneficial for those who do not have those conditions, but need some relief from sensitive or very dry skin. Hemps soap is great for washing and is especially good for the sensitive skin on your face. It will actually help moderate oil production in your skin so it isn't too dry or too oily.
Coffee. Using soaps originated from the heart of mother nature, like coffee soap, not only cleans your body without any lurking harmful ingredient but also because of its vast intrinsic benefits, it fulfills your need of many post-bath care products. Coffee is rich in antioxidants that help protect your skin from free radical damage and aging. Some studies have shown that coffee oil has similar effects on the skin as the anti-aging skin care ingredient hyaluronic acid because it can increase collagen and elastin, making the skin look and feel firmer. Did I mention it is a great Exfoliant scrub.
Honey is also a wonderful additive to soaps, and you don't have to be a beekeeper to use it. It imparts a light, warm, sweet scent, the added sugar content helps increase the lather, and acts as a humectant. Honey has antimicrobial qualities that allow cleansing of the skin without stripping the skin's natural oils.
Oatmeal. Other than its lavish foaming, it's great for treating skin problems, such as eczema. This little bar is very powerful when it comes to replacing missing nutrients back into your skin. If you’re someone who suffers from skin disorders or are just looking for the ultimate-soap to use in the shower.
Cinnamon helps rid the face and back of impurities that can cause acne. It dries the skin of its excessive oil and then brings blood and oxygen to the surface of the skin to give it a healthy glow. Because cinnamon brings blood and nutrients to the skins surface while also helping to dry the skin it is known to be used in soaps and skincare products to help with many skin conditions.
Lavender is a staple of the essential oil universe. Its ability to calm and relax has been known for centuries. The soothing scent of lavender can quickly ease stress, anxiety and even reduce headaches. It can almost guarantee a good night’s sleep. It is beneficial for the skin, too. According to one 2016 study, lavender essential oil is a collagen booster and aids in healing skin tissues. It also has antibacterial properties which make it helpful in fighting breakouts. Additionally, terpenoids, such as linalool and linalyl acetate, are present in lavender essential oil and have powerful antioxidant qualities.
Goats milk soap is a gentle cleanser rich in fatty acids that can help support a healthy skin barrier to keep skin nourished and moisturized. Moreover, its high lactic acid content may help exfoliate the skin. The sweet cream content of the goat milk is one of several contributors to the moisturizing properties of the soap. Soaps made with raw goat milk contains Vitamin A, C, E, several B vitamins, amino acids and natural enzymes.
Peppermint According to acupuncturist David Crowe in his book "The Pharmacy of Flowers," peppermint essential oil added to skin soaps works as an antiseptic skin cleanser used to treat urticaria and pruritis. It also relives itchiness and irritation when used with moderation; otherwise, it may cause skin irritation. Peppermint soap acts as a refreshing skin tonic and cools down inflammation cause by skin blemishes and acne.
Spruce essential oil helps to soothe a number of skin conditions. Traditionally, people have used the essential oil of spruce to treat infections as well as invigorate the immune system.
Cedarwood oil has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. This may make it beneficial for skin conditions that youngin's get. Who knew that the oil from a tree could be so beneficial to your health and wellness? Surprisingly, cedarwood essential oil has anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, antifungal, tonic, astringent, diuretic, sedative and insecticidal properties.
