Not only does the Cucumber Mint From Scratch Soap smell good, but it is good for your skin, too!
We have mentioned how calming and soothing this soap is for sunburn, but it is also calming and soothing for skin issues like blemishes, flaky skin, itchy skin, dry skin, and more.
This soap has amazing ingredients (and is actually free of coconut oil for those with allergies!). We have previously talked about the amazing skin benefits of olive oil, apricot oil, and shea butter, all of which are in this soap. In addition to water and lye, this soap also contains sunflower oil, cucumber puree, mint leaves, cucumber fragrance oil, and peppermint essential oil.
Sunflower oil is packed with nutrients, antioxidants, and is also high in vitamin E. These antioxidants help protect your skin from UV damage and help you keep that youthful glow! This oil is also known to help with redness and inflammation, blemishes, and skin irritations. And, as you may have guessed, it is great at moisturizing and helping your skin stay moisturized.
Cucumber has long been used in skincare, so it might not surprise you to learn that it tightens and tones the skin and is cooling and calming on sunburn. It also helps protect your skin from the sun and can also help rejuvenate the skin when it has been burned. Cucumber also can help with red, puffy skin and fight the signs of aging. This is a great all-around ingredient for your skin!
Our fragrance oils are made with natural, plant-based oils. This is important because it means this soap will smell like REAL cucumbers instead of a chemical, fake cucumber scent. We love that we are able to enhance the yummy cucumber smell of this soap.
Since peppermint essential oil is going to have very similar properties to mint leaves, let’s talk about both of them together! Peppermint has astringent properties that help tone and tighten your skin, and the mint leaves also help unclog pores and clean out dead skin cells. Peppermint has antibacterial properties, which is great news for those with blemishes. Both the essential oil and the leaves are excellent at fighting inflammation, which helps with cuts, bug bites, dry skin, itchy skin, and more! They also have amazing benefits to fight aging: lightening dark circles, brightening your complexion, and they are loaded with antioxidants.
There are so many great reasons to try this bar of soap, and we hope you drop one in your cart today! Just make sure you list your consultant upon checkout!
