Available as a 4 ounce soap bar containing the following:
Damask Rose Oil (Rosa damascena)
Originally found growing in Persia thousands of years ago, this aromatic “old rose” is used primarily for rose oil production. It takes 30 roses to distill one drop of this precious oil. Most rose scented soaps contain only synthetic fragrance. With this soap you can readily smell the difference.*
Rose Geranium Essential Oil (Pelargonium graveolens)
Native to South Africa, this plant is grown for its scented leaves which are steam distilled. The fragrance is so lovely that it is commonly used in perfumery, soaps and shampoos. We use the fine quality oil from Reunion Island off the southeast coast of Africa.*
Chamomile Flower Extract (Matricaria recutita)
Chamomile use in Europe goes back to the Middle Ages. The water infusion was used as a tea and as a skin wash. Also referred to as “ground apple” for its fruity scent, its extract is frequently incorporated in soap. We grow abundant chamomile in our South Wedge gardens.*
Macadamia Oil (Macadamia ternifolia)
The Macadamia Nut was discovered by native Australians and used for its high oil content. More recently the oil is found in premium soaps for its skin permeable properties. It contains a large amount of Palmitoleic fatty acid which has a similar consistency to human skin oil.*
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.
