    Himalayan Salt Soap

    Natural soap with Himalayan salt, jojoba and almond oil

    Refreshing cold-stirred natural soap with Himalayan salt. The jojoba and almond oil contained in it provides the skin with moisture. Salt soaps are very popular as they can be used for a variety of skin problems. For example, those who suffer from impure skin can benefit from a salt soap. But also very dry skin, sensitive skin or in case of neurodermatitis salt soaps are recommended.

    Salt has wonderful properties: in a low concentration, it provides valuable minerals for our whole organism, but above all for the skin. In a different concentration, it ensures that pollutants are removed from our body. Furthermore, the "white gold" is promised further modes of action. It has a disinfecting and antiseptic effect and naturally strengthens our skin.

    Main components

    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.
    Almond oil makes the skin hydrated and smooth. It also soothes dry and irritated skin by regenerating damaged cells. Almond oil naturally contains plenty of nutrients, especially vitamin E, the so-called tocopherol, which is often added to "anti-aging" products
    Jojoba oil is rich in vitamin E and provitamin A, as well as vitamin B6 and various minerals. Jojoba oil has a favorable fat composition, so the fatty acids are non-fatty. This means that it is especially suitable for dry, stressed and itchy skin. The liquid wax combines with the skin sebum and thus helps to increase the moisture content of 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.

    Care instructions

    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.
