Available as a 4 ounce soap bar containing the following:
Aloe Vera Leaf Juice (Aloe barbadensis)
Aloe use for skin care goes back some 5000 years in Egypt where it was called the “plant of immortality”. The gel is high in vitamins, minerals and complex plant sugars. Today you find it in a great number of personal care product formulations including soap and shampoo.*
Lemon Balm Leaf (Melissa officinalis)
Grown in our South Wedge gardens, Lemon Balm has a delightful soft lemon scent and is frequently used as an herbal tea and flavoring agent in cooking. It is used in this soap both for its pleasing aroma and for its high concentration of poly-phenol antioxidants.*
Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia)
The Melaleuca Tree is native to Australia and has a long history of use there. The oil distilled from the leaves of the tree has a pungent smell due to the presence of terpenes. Often used topically for its alleged antiseptic properties, Tea Tree Oil is added to this soap as a natural preservative.*
Sweet Almond Oil (Prunus amygdalus dulcis)
The use of sweet almonds for skin care goes back several thousand years in the Mediterranean region. Almonds are rich in protein, calcium, magnesium, and vitamins A and E. Traditionally used in soaps and shampoos, this oil yields a bubbly lather.*
Fantastic for cleansing all skin of all types, South Wedge Botanical Soap contains no animal by-products, no synthetic fragrance, and no detergents. The base soap contains saponified food grade oils of Rice Bran (Oryza sativa), Palm (Elaeis guineensis) and Coconut (Cocos nucifera) for a full balanced lather. Only the purest grade of sodium hydroxide is used in our soap production. Essential oil content is less than 1.0%. This handcrafted soap is quality tested for consistency, aged, then packaged in biodegradable cellulose film.
