Though often not talked about, there is a growing number of people that suffer from skin irritation; the level of irritation can be mild for most, though it has become quite severe for many. What most people don't realize is that dyes, colorants and perfumes run rampant in the soap and makeup industry. If you are suffering from irritated skin, consider looking into high probability sources such as laundry detergent, fabric softeners, make-up, shampoo and body soap.
As an example, I use less laundry detergent in my clothes while using an extra rinse cycle (to wash out as much soap from my clothes as possible). Further to this, I no longer use any form of fabric softener as I have personally found that it is a major irritant for my skin. I have found that nearly all commercially available bar soaps irritate my skin and for this reason I have decided to list MOKO RASA soaps on my shop. Moko Rasa soap is real soap - a soap with real ingredients, not cheap chemically manufactured ingredients that imitate the experience that real soap provides.
Raw Goats Milk is a fantastic ingredient that is both nourishing, replenishing and moisturizing as well as being full of vitamins and essential minerals which can help kill off nasty bacteria on the skin. Oh and it makes for a GREAT lather.
Essential Oil of Basil holds many interesting properties. The fresh scent is considered to energize the mind and repel insects.
Essential Oil Curcuma is an antioxidant that holds some anti-fungal properties and promotes clear, smooth, radiant skin. The Curcuma plant is also known as "wild tumeric" and the essential oil holds a spicy, forest-like woody aroma.
Pumice: Pumice stone forms when lava and water mix together. The perfect exfoliator for removing dead skin. Also great for removing grease and dirt.
Carrot Powder is made from dehydrated carrot which is ground into a powder. Great for repairing and toning the skin. Carrot powder may also help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and scars.
Aloe Vera Juice: The gel inside the Aloe Vera plant is well known for its medicinal and soothing qualities. It can assist in healing the skin from a various ailments including sunburn, minor cuts, or small abrasions.
Parsley Powder: Some consider this herb promotes clearer, healthy skin. Parsley powder is known to have disinfectant properties that can help reduce acne breakouts.
Activated Charcoal helps to cleanse the skin and unclog pores. It is often used as a cleanser ingredient to help remove deep impurities and dead skin cells.
Saponification is the official name for “soap-making” and describes the chemical reaction that takes place when you mix oils (triglycerides) and water with a strong alkali (naturally occurring potassium hydroxide - also called lye) or sodium under heat. This produces glycerol and a fatty acid salt (soap).
