    Flaky – Iceland sea salt soap with honey

    Salt soap with "Flaky Sea Salt", a mineral-fresh sea salt that is produced only with energy from geothermal hot springs in the northwest of Iceland. This salt production method is based on the old method from the 17th century, which is also practiced in Reykjanes. Geothermal energy is the only source of energy that is used. This means that we leave no CO2 emissions in the environment throughout our process.

    My Iceländische Salzseife contains plenty of sea salt, which provides the skin with valuable minerals from the sea. The hand-boiled vegetable oil soap is recommended for sensitive or impure skin. You can also use the soap as a gentle scrub. Due to its high salt content, the salt soap foams a little less.

    The sea salt can not only maintain a beautiful skin and help against small pimples and annoying impurities, it also has a medicinal effectiveness. Thus, people with neurodermatitis can benefit from regular use. Salt soaps are generally more overgreased. Overgreased means that the fat has not been completely saponified. So there is still fat left over in the manufacturing process, which is nourishing.

    Salt soaps regulate the moisture and fat balance due to the over-greasing and give the skin the opportunity to normalize. Salt purifies the skin and has a positive effect on the metabolism. Due to a high salt content, salt soaps are well tolerated even by very sensitive skin.

    When are sea salt soaps often used?

    Main components

    Sea salt has a disinfecting and antibacterial effect.
    Especially with inflamed pimples, sea salt is a true miracle cure, as reddened skin areas gently subside due to the additional anti-inflammatory effect. In addition, sea salt has a balancing effect on our skin and strengthens the acid mantle.
    Shea Butter is an excellent, rich and nourishing moisturizer that reduces the appearance of fine lines and makes the skin silky smooth.
    Olive oil reduces the signs of aging due to its antioxidant properties. The skin is moisturized and cell renewal is stimulated. It is rich in vitamin E, linoleic acid and chlorophyll.
    Coconut oil is rich in minerals, antioxidants and vitamins. It has an antibacterial effect. In addition, coconut oil moisturizes, relieves inflammation on the face and softens the skin.

    Tips for extending the life of your soap
    Place your soap in a bowl that drains (not flat on the tile or in a non-emptying bowl!) and make sure it doesn't get wet between applications. This is optional, but it will definitely help your soap last longer.

    About me
    All my products are handmade by me in very small batches in my studio in St. Gallen. My soap is cold process soap, which means I make the recipe from scratch with full control over all the ingredients. Each bar of soap matures for 4 to 6 weeks. This ensures that all the water has evaporated and results in a harder soap bar that lasts longer.

    Tips to extend the life of your soap

    Place your soap in a bowl that will drain (not flat on the tile or in a non-draining bowl!) And make sure it doesn't get wet between uses. This is optional, but it will definitely help your soap last longer

    How long do your soaps mature?

    My soaps mature 4 to 6 weeks open on the shelf so that they can dry well. My pure olive oil soap needs to mature for at least 6 months or more.

    What do you use titanium dioxide for?

    I use titanium dioxide to lighten the soap, depending on the raw materials, the natural soap can be green, yellow or brown. In nature, titanium dioxide is widespread in the form of the minerals rutile and ilmenite (together with iron). Titanium dioxide is non-toxic and not harmful to water.

    Which soap for extremely dry skin?

    All of my natural soaps are suitable for dry skin. Milk soaps in particular are ideal for dry skin.

    PH of soaps, don't they dry out the skin?

    Definitely no. Natural soaps (please do not confuse them with industrial soaps) are always basic. The pH value is 8.5 - 10. This is absolutely harmless to our skin. Amniotic fluid. E.g. has a pH value of 8.5 and let's be honest, is there a more beautiful and softer skin than baby skin?

    What is NaOH?

    NaOH aka caustic soda or sodium hydroxide is an essential ingredient in soap production. Our lye is made from common table salt dissolved in water, and electrodes add electricity to the mixture, creating chloride, hydrogen and lye. This material has been used in natural soap production for centuries. When used correctly, it can help make safe natural products. However, according to European cosmetic laws, you will not find sodium hydroxide on our labels as it is not included in the end products.

    Can children use natural soaps?

    Yeah sure! Children in particular benefit from the mild cleaning and natural care

    Custom and personalized orders

    Yes, of course I can. Just contact me directly, then we can discuss it.

    Versendest du auch ausserhalb der Schweiz?

    Ja ich versende auch in andere Länder. Leider kann ich dies nicht kostenlos anbieten!

    Es können Zölle und Einfuhrgebühren fällig werden. Bitte informiert euch über die gesetzlichen Bedienungen in eurem Land.

    Where do your raw materials come from?

    It is very different. Raw materials such as rapeseed oil, sunflower oil, hemp oil, goat and sheep milk, honey, herbs and plants come from Switzerland.
    Well-known raw materials such as coconut oil, shea butter, babassu oil, olive oil, grape seed oil etc. are often very transparent and easily traceable (fair trade etc.) available from wholesalers in the respective country. I don't use palm oil.

    I try to avoid other raw materials or to reduce their consumption. Often I have to rely on my feelings. Transparency is important to me so that I and my customers can decide yes or no.
