All Natural Soap, Feel Good --Smell Good

I just finished using my ANGEL KISSED LUXURY HAND MADE SOAP in black raspberry vanilla. It was probably one of my favorite showers because the aroma in the shower was so amazing and my bathroom still smells amazing ! I was sent the soap from Anna Pereira who is the owner and creator of her own Natural Vegan Soap Line AND clothing line "Super Sexy" .

So back to the soap, it actually changed my mood and calmed me down and that takes a lot after a long day of work ! It is made from the finest ingredients such as :

Olive Oil - is high in oleic acid and is a good skin cell regenerator. It is traditionally included within soap, cream, balm, body butter, herbal infusion and hair care formulations. Olive Oil attracts external moisture to the skin and still permits the skin to properly release sweat, shed dead skin and release sebum. It is a good oil for inclusion in massage oil formulations and it helps to sooth inflamed skin.

Coconut Oil - To make this oil, coconuts are cut and dried until the moisture content of the meat is minimized. The dried copra is then grated and expeller pressed to remove the oil. Finally, the oil is refined to produce an oil suitable for consumption. Coconut oil is useful in formulations for dry, itchy, sensitive skin. It will not clog pores, and it absorbs readily into the skin. Coconut oil is a gift to the soap making industry because of its resistance to rancidity and contribution towards making a hard bar of soap with a wonderfully fluffy lather. Coconut oil is light and non-greasy. It can be incorporated well into balms and stick formulations. Herbal hair infusions are often infused in coconut oil.

Aloe Juice- Soothing, Calming and hydrating to the skin

Shea Butter African healers have used Shea Butter for thousands of years as the ideal treatment for dry or aging skin. Its high content of non-saponifiables and unique fatty acid profile gives Shea Butter the ability to moisturize and retain the elasticity of the skin. Shea Butter also helps to protect the skin against the damaging effects of the sun while repairing cellular degeneration. The Shea Butter is extracted and refined without the use of harsh chemicals.

Cocoa Butter This edible fat from the cocoa pod is a stable fat containing natural antioxidants that give it a long shelf life of over 3 years. Cocoa butter is a soothing emollient that has been used for centuries in Africa for skin care. It has been traditionally used to heal and moisturize skin that has been exposed to the elements. Cocoa butter helps reduce the formation of stretch marks during pregnancy by keeping the skin supple. It is a nourishing addition to lotion bar, lip balm, body butter, soap and belly balm formulations.

Avocado oil has been used in African skin treatments for centuries. This highly therapeutic oil is rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B5 (Panthothenic acid), Vitamin D, E, minerals, protein, lecithin and fatty acids. It is a useful, penetrating nutrient for dry skin and eczema. Avocado oil is said to have healing and regenerating qualities.

Apricot kernel oil is a light, yet emollient oil that is high in oleic and linoleic acids. It is similar in feel and properties to sweet almond oil and is readily absorbed into the skin. It is recommended for mature skin, sensitive skin and skin that is inflamed, irritated or dry. Apricot kernel oil makes a wonderful massage oil for babies and adults and is used extensively in aromatherapy.

Castor oil is rich in fatty acids and is soothing and lubricating. It is a humectant that attracts moisture to the skin. It is routinely used in hair oils, balms, and other thick emulsions for the skin and hair. In combination with other oils and as a superfatting agent, castor oil lends emollience to soap formulations.

So as you can tell by this impressive list of all natural ingredients these soaps are very hydrating and I must say my skin hasn't felt this smooth after a shower in a very long time. And it was only my first time using it so I'm sure the results will only get better. The soap smells to die for. I'm not joking I must have smelled the soap twenty times before I got in the shower. So it's safe to say you can have delicious smelling soap that is hydrating, natural, vegan and cruelty free. It's safe to say that this will replace my shower gel ! I'm Converted and you should definitely give it a shot !
