How to choose my soap?

Skins are not created equal. They are unique to you. Your skin can change depending on your diet, age, hormone cycles, stress, weather and many other factors...

Our soaps are formulated to be gentle to all types of skin. Some skins like soaps high in olive oil or shea butter. Some skins are allergic to coconut. Some skins are sensitive. Others might be too dry and need increased hydration.

We make these recommendations to help you choose the right soap for you more easily. If you are curious about the soaps for other skin types, you still can give it try with a small trial-size sample. 

SENSITIVE SKIN 

Many people have sensitive skin but what kind of sensitive skin do they have? Sensitive skin is skin prone to inflammation. Some skins might relate to generic ailments such as rosacea, eczema... many things can cause sensitivity to the skin.

Some people truly have thin or fine-textured sensitive skin which react quickly to both heat and cold, sunburns and wind burns. Such skins are often dry. Our second daughter has thin skin in the family but she seems fine with all our soaps. 

Some people might have skin sensitive to weather and the environment. Seasonal temperature, humidity changes, synthetic fragrances, colours, preservatives, alcohol, artificial additives can also cause irritation, which leads to red, itchy skin.

Sensitive skin should avoid: 
- Long showers with hot water
- Synthetic fragrances or perfume soaps
- Artificially-coloured soaps
- Using exfoliants

As a skin-care company, we are not trying to treat the condition. We make soaps and other body products  only to try and help ease those allergic symptoms.

Might we recommend some soaps for you, if you have sensitive skin.

DRY SKIN 

Dry skin is not usually serious. It occurs when the skin doesn't retain sufficient moisture. Dry skin has a decreased oil barrier so water easily evaporates through the skin. Dry skin might be caused by using synthetic or artificial products, or products with alcohol. 

Dry skin looks dry, scale or flake, peel, feel rough, crack and bleed, red, and gets itchy. 

Dry skin doesn't need to avoid products with essential oils, just avoid synthetic fragrances and artificial colours. Use products with more oil and butter for soothing hydration.

Dry skin can use all the soaps recommended for sensitive skin. Might we suggest some more soaps for dry skin as below: 

 
Carrot Soap
Calendula Soap
Lavender Soap
Lavender butter Goat milk Soap
Lavender goat milk soap
Lemon myrtle butter goat milk soap

OILY SKIN

Oily skin tends to attract more dirt and dust than dry skin and may cause blackheads and acne. But oil helps preserve the skin, and people with oily skin tend to have thicker skin and fewer wrinkles. The key is to strike a balance between having too much oil and maintaining the skin's natural moisture. 

Goat-milk soap is the best-recommended soap for balancing the oil on the skin. So please choose any kind of soaps under Goat milk soap category. We also recommend some soap with essential oils for oily skin as below:
 
Lemongrass Lemon myrtle Poppyseed  Eucalyptus Peppermint Charcoal 
Lavender Tea Tree Lemongrass Lemon myrtle
