The effect of our most important ingredients
You do not need high-tech additives or chemical cocktails to care for your skin optimally. See for yourself what vegetable oils, goat's milk and more can do:
Vegetable oils and fats:
Cocoa butter (Theobroma cacao seed butter)
The valuable ingredients such as Cocoheal support wound healing, promote growth of our skin cells and help to prevent wrinkles. Soaps with cocoa butter are particularly hard, are very skin-friendly and last a long time with good care!
Olive oil (Olea Europea Fruit Oil)
Consists of up to 85 percent of unsaturated fatty acids that protect the skin from drying out. In addition to the contained vitamin E especially so-called polyphenols are cosmetically effective. Polyphenols are strong free radical scavengers, protect tissue and skin and stimulate cell renewal. In addition, olive oil contains the enzyme elastase, which is responsible for maintaining the resilience of the skin.
Palm oil (Elaeis guineensis oil)
is the supplier of palmitic acid, a fatty acid that strengthens the skin's natural barrier and protects it from harmful environmental influences. It has a regenerating, antioxidant and skin smoothing effect. In addition, it can repair cell damage caused by UV light.We only buy our palm oil for sustainable cultivation and not from burn-slash areas in Indoniesen or South America!
Shea butter (Butyrospermum Parkii Butter)
Karité or shea butter is obtained from the seed of the shea tree, the shea nut. It is laboriously harvested in the savannahs of Africa by squeezing out the fruit and is often the only way for women to make money there. The main constituents of shea butter are the fatty acids, of which oleic acid, stearic acid, linolenic acid and palmitic acid are particularly noteworthy. A very important ingredient is the allantoin, because it has anti-inflammatory, cell-regenerating and wound-healing properties that provide very good help and support, especially in skin irritations.
Sunflower oil (Helianthus annus)
is characterized by a high content of unsaturated fatty acids (linoleic acid). It is a light, mildly nourishing oil that is particularly well absorbed by the skin. The contained vitamin E has an anti-inflammatory effect and protects the skin against the harmful effects of free radicals.
Beeswax (Cera flava, Cera alba)
Beeswax is characterized by skin-protecting and moisturizing properties. Beeswax forms a light protective film on the skin, which has a pleasant and soothing effect on skin irritation and dryness.
Honey provides a soft and supple feel to the skin as it has moisturizing properties and gives dry and stressed skin what it needs to soothe, regenerate and smooth out. The many mild acids in honey are very similar to those in the acid mantle of the skin and help rebuild it. Honey is especially good for mature and stressed skin. But even with young skin honey is an ideal additional product. It benefits from the antibacterial effect of honey, is gently cleansed and maintains a radiant complexion.
Coffee (Coffea arrabica)
The coffee soap is mainly used in the kitchen. Coffee is known for neutralizing odors and therefore predestined for use after kitchen work. Whether garlic, onions or fish, many foods leave unpleasant odors on the hands and our coffee soap neutralizes them reliably. In addition, caffeine is known as an excellent anti-cellulite ingredient!
Marigold flowers (Calendula officinalis flowers)
Thanks to their anti-inflammatory, circulation-promoting and wound-healing properties not only useful for injured skin, but also protect the sensitive skin from dehydration. Even with impure skin, marigold blossoms provide relief and make pimples heal faster.
