1. What is a body bar?
A meticulously created solid soap that’s naturally nourishing and moisturizing leaving your skin healthy along with that supple glow.
2. Can the body bars be used on the face?
Yes, we don’t see any reason why not. in fact, we use it on our face all the time. it’s the mild nature of our soap that makes it as good a face bar as it is a body bar. however, our good ol’ charcoal has scrubbing granules so we recommend not to use it on your face on the regular.
3. Don’t germs accumulate on the bar?
Contrary to popular belief, a body bar is waaaay healthier than a liquid soap. liquid soaps are diluted with large amount of water which makes it the perfect breeding ground for bacteria.
4. What saponification agent is used in these bars?
We’ve used sodium hydroxide which is commonly known as lye. since the bars are made using ‘cold process’, they are left to cure for over 2-3 weeks. at the end of it, we get bars that are always mild and healthy, with no bad chemicals.
5. What does cold process mean?
Cold process enables us to have maximum control over ingredients to not only retain their natural goodness but also the byproduct of soap making; glycerin which is a moisturizing agent for your skin. meticulously crafted, given weeks to take form, we promise you mild, gentle and most importantly, a healthy experience.
6. If there are no detergents, how come the lather is so rich?
Detergents are such unimaginative way to create lather. different oils when saponified give different densities of lather. we have mixed oils in a proportion that the lather is always rich and creamy.
7. How long will the body bar last?
One body bar, when stored properly, would last you more than a month.
8. My skin is left feeling dry, what can i do?
Our body bars have natural glycerin which is highly moisturizing. unfortunately, winter tends to make our skin dry and so we recommend our ‘honey i’m oats’ bar during winters. if you’re still facing dryness, we recommend massaging a little bit of coconut oil at night before sleeping. not only will it keep your skin a little bit more moisturized, but also help your body relax.
9. Do i need to use a moisturiser after the body bar?
Our body bars are highly moisturizing and some of us have stopped using lotions completely. however, if your skin is prone to dryness, we recommend using a little bit of warm coconut oil massage before sleeping.
10. How are these body bars moisturising?
First thing first, they are made of all-natural ingredients. which means no harsh chemicals that leave your skin feeling dry. for someone with dry skin or during the winter season, we recommend using ‘honey, i’m oats!’ as the base oils give you a soft, moisturised feeling.
11. Do you use palm oil in your body bars?
It’s truly unfortunate how palm oil is sourced. that’s why we don’t use palm oil in our body bars.
12. You still have used tonnes of packaging, what about reducing some waste?
We are very aware of the consequences of unnecessary packaging. which is why, we have made our packaging from 100% recycled material. in addition, our packaging is shipping-ready. this means there are no additional cardboard wrapping used for shipping, they go as is. hence, no additional waste.
