KOHA Beauty Soaps (part II)
In last week’s blog post, we introduced you to two of our gorgeous new cold-process soaps, our Activated Charcoal, Tea Tree & Lemongrass soap and our Shea Butter, Kaolin Clay & Ylang Ylang soap. Have you been tempted to try them yet? We couldn’t possibly choose a favourite!
Next up in our roster of sumptuous silky soaps, we’d love to introduce you to two more in our collection – the Green Clay, Dead Sea Mud & Eucalyptus soap, and the Lemon, Poppyseed & Turmeric soap. Both are wildly Instagrammable, and both have been carefully created to nourish and balance oily or acne-prone complexions. If you have one of these slightly more problematic skin types, you might be nervous about soaps, or of introducing new products into your skincare regime at all, but our completely natural and extra-gentle soaps are ideal for everyday use, without irritating delicate skins.
So, allow us to talk you through our most intensively cleansing soap: Green Clay, Dead Sea Mud & Eucalyptus. If you experience a slightly more congested complexion, an oily skin type or feel that your skin is more blemish-prone than most, we think this soap is for you.
Packed with deep-cleansing ingredients like French green clay and Dead Sea mud, we like to think of this soap as more of a treatment, although you can use it everyday to keep your complexion under control. Dead Sea mud is known for its wonderfully effective cleansing properties, which refresh the skin without leaving it feeling stripped or dry, whilst the green clay and calendula will work together to help your skin feel luxuriously nourished post-cleanse. This soap is made using the traditional cold-process method with a base of olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter, rapeseed oil, castor oil, coconut milk and kaolin clay, and scented with spearmint and eucalyptus essential oils, for a seriously invigorating scent that makes this soap ideal for a morning cleanse. Just one sniff and you’ll feel energised and ready for the day ahead, we promise you!
Let’s talk about the look of this soap, as we think it’s got serious Scandi-chic vibes (yes, we know appearance isn’t the most important thing, but it helps!). This triple threat block has a layer of deep-cleansing Dead Sea mud, a layer of shea butter sprinkled with calendula petals, and a top layer of French green clay, with our signature scalloped finishing. Super-stylish and minimalistic, if you’re into that kind of thing.
Next up, allow us to introduce you to our exfoliating soap: Lemon, Poppyseed & Turmeric. A vibrant block of rich sunflower yellow, with a creamy top section sprinkled with seeds, we think this soap starts your day sunny side-up. Enhanced with kaolin clay, turmeric and lemongrass, this soap offers a refreshing cleansing experience, and the addition of poppyseeds provide gentle exfoliation. Kaolin clay makes this soap extra-silky, making it ideal for use not only on the face but in the shower too, and as we’ve explained before, this amazing ingredient has fantastic razor slip, so that you can use the soap as a natural alternative to a shaving gel or cream. Turmeric is known for its fiery yellow hue, but it’s also a fantastic ant-inflammatory; it contains antioxidants that can help to protect and soothe your skin, whilst enhancing your natural glow. The inclusion of poppyseeds offers a light and non-abrasive exfoliating experience too, to gently buff the surface of the skin and leave the texture looking smooth and bright, and the vibrant lemongrass scent is the perfect way to perk up your cleansing regime.
Created with a rich, nourishing base of olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter, rapeseed oil, castor oil, coconut milk powder and kaolin clay, scented with sweet, citrusy lemongrass and may chang essential oils. We think this summery soap is perfect for use all over the body, to cleanse and polish the skin without giving you a dry or tight feeling, or being too gritty on the surface of your skin.
We’re delighted to say that all of our soaps are 100% natural, cruelty-free and vegan friendly, scented with natural clays and botanicals to give beautiful colours and fragrances. Our soaps are packaged in 100% plastic-free and completely recyclable cardboard sleeves, making them totally ethical, recyclable and sustainable. Thanks to the exclusion of hardening agents within our formulas, your KOHA Beauty soap will be extra-soft, but all you need to remember to do in order to maintain its texture is to leave it to dry on a slotted soap dish after each use, so it can drain effectively.
Next up in our weekly soap series, we’ll be talking you through the last two of our fabulous soaps, featuring incredible natural ingredients such as French pink clay, rose geranium, rhassoul clay and indigo root. Intrigued? We think you will be!
You can buy our soaps now on our website, they’re priced at £8 each. We can’t wait to hear your thoughts!
