Available as a 4 ounce soap bar containing the following:
Rosemary Essential Oil (Rosmarinus officinalis)
Rosemary, known as the “herb of remembrance”, has a long history of growing all around the Mediterranean. The leaves are used in seasoning and to steam distill the essential oil which is traditionally used in soap and shampoo for its herbal evergreen scent and as a natural preservative.*
African Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii)
Unrefined Shea Butter comes from the nuts of the Karite Tree which is native to West Africa. For centuries it has been obtained by boiling the dried cracked nuts and has a long history of use for skin care. Raw Shea Butter, high in vitamins A and E, is frequently used in soap.*
Burdock Root Powder (Arctium lappa)
This nutritious root is high in vitamins, minerals, mucilage, inulin and pectin. It has a history of use as a skin wash and external salve by Native Americans. Often found in soaps and shampoos, we incorporate this root powder for its special cleansing and emulsifying properties.*
Black Seed (Nigella sativa)
Nigella sativa, popularly known as Black Seed, has an ancient history of use for seasoning and skin care in the Middle East. Archaeologists have even found these seeds in tombs of the Pharaohs. We grow this delicate flower in our South Wedge gardens to harvest the seeds for this soap.*
Fantastic for cleansing all skin of all types, South Wedge Botanical Soap contains no animal by-products, no synthetic fragrance, and no detergents.
