OLIVE OIL SOAPS

Beautiful hand crafted Olive Oil based soap. These soaps are made with blended oils, including Coconut and Olive, and made from only the finest ingredients. Each slice looks and smells wonderful as well as being a range of soaps that are great for the skin.

Olive Oil soaps were one of the first vegetable soaps that man ever made. These are hand made using the age old traditional cold process making method. WE DO NOT USE PALM OIL IN OUR SOAPS>

Soaps made with vegetable oils have many beneficial properties for skin. The best news of all is that they are also SLS and paraben free.

The natural fat provides protection, improves skin tone, softness and youth of skin through restructuring oil action.  See details of each individual soap for its own  special properties relating to essential oils and other natural ingredients in them. 

Beautiful, aromatic and GREAT for the skin ! 

 After unmoulding these soaps are hand cut then air dried and turned EVERY DAY for SIX WEEKS.  A labour of love - but the end result is well worth it.

SOLID SHAMPOO BARS

Solid Shampoo - the bar you take into the shower to wash your hair... 

 These solid, long lasting shampoo bars can be used frequently without any drying effects.  Its simplicity itself to use these solid bars, first get your hair really wet.  Then, make a few passes with the bar until you get a rich lather.  Massage into your scalp and leave for a few minutes before rinsing out.  It is that simple and because our shampoos do not contain sodium lauryl sulphate, they don’t strip away any of the natural oils from your own hair and can be used without a conditioner. But don't stop there...our shampoo bars can also be used as soaps for face and body - making them a single product for the shower instead of all those different bottles.....no more spilled or leaking bottles in the suitcase either - GREAT for weekends away or for that sunshine break. Now available in a variety of colours and fragrances.Argan oil is often used as a hair treatment. It is extremely beneficial for hair and scalp, and is commonly used as a conditioner.

Vitamin E is extremely beneficial for hair, and is found in argan oil in high quantities. Vitamin E promotes healthy hair growth as it contains antioxidants, which help boost cells and encourage them to produce healthy hair – it has even been used for hair regrowth. Argan oil has a number of benefits when used on hair. It can act as a moisturiser for the scalp to fight dandruff and dry scalp. It can also promote the growth of healthy, strong hair as opposed to thin, brittle hair. It can even undo some of the damage done through chemical treatments and dyes, and can be used to treat split ends. Immediate benefits can also be seen in people who use argan oil on their hair. It is an excellent agent for taming frizz and promoting shine and gloss, as well as softer, more manageable hair.

Argan oil is non-irritating and actually reverses much of the damage done by artificial chemicals and treatments on hair. It is often used in its pure form for healthy, soft and shiny hair. Below are a few of the best ways to use argan oil on hair. Argan oil is often used as a key ingredient in shampoos due to its ability to restore softness, strength and shine to hair. It is an ideal ingredient to search for in a shampoo for anyone suffering from dry, brittle hair or hair damaged by chemicals and coloring. The benefit of using argan oil as an ingredient in shampoo is that you can apply it just as a normal shampoo without adding an extra step in your routine or worrying about using the correct quantity of argan oil. It is the ideal method for ensuring strong, nourished hair with an improved appearance on a day-to-day basis.
