The Licorice Swirl soap & shampoo bar is made with pure Anise Seed (licorice) essential oil and coloured with alkanet powder (plant based).
Anise Seed has been used in traditional herbal medicine to reduce wrinkles and tighten pores. Great to fight acne and use as a deep cleanser. It's anti-microbial and anti-fungal.
Alkanet Root naturally soothes irritated, itchy skin and scalp and such skin issues as eczema. Great for sensitive skin as are most of Barefoot Daughter's soaps.
Base Ingredients: Olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter, castor oil, pure essential oil. All soap & shampoo bars are sulphate & palm free. To read why Barefoot Daughter switched from sustainable palm oil to shea butter read the blog entry here.
Olive Oil is used in most cold process soaps because of its deeply moisturizing and nourishing properties. It is a suitable natural body wash for those with sensitive or dry skin as it has a lower pH than most 'mainstream' soaps that can be made from foaming agents (SLS), petroleum oil or animal fats which can be drying and irritate the skin.
Coconut oil helps the skin and the hair. The properties of the coconut oil also help remove dead skin cells and dirt away from the body. The oils also help prevent or reduce acne. It also helps firm up your skin helps you look younger as the soap is rich in antioxidants.
