Botanical Defence Antibacterial Soap Round 3-Piece Set
THE SKIN BARRIER SOAP : Set of three soaps (3.5 Oz each) with very rich and extra-foaming formulation made with natural oils and infused with antibacterial extracts for a powerful and natural protection on your skin. To deliver a product that can guarantee the strongest results, we combined in significant quantities, four of the best antibacterial ingredients that nature provides.
- ECHINACEA (Echinacea angustifolia) extracts with strong antimicrobial activity, have been used traditionally as wound healing and to treat bacterial infections.
- UNCARIA (Uncaria tomentosa) is the most promising medicinal herbs from the Amazon Rainforest. It has anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antioxidant, and immunomodulatory properties.
- TEA TREE (Melaleuca Alternifolia) extract is obtained by distillation of the leaves of Melaleuca, a tree native to Australia reported to have strong antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral properties.
- GARLIC (Allium Sativum) garlic has proven itself since ancient times as an effective killer of bacteria and viruses. Garlic can prevent infection inside or outside the body.
The cauldron production process, or Marseilles method, used for our soap represents the artisan tradition by which man has created soap for centuries. It is the skill, experience and eyes of the maker and not the management of machines or mechanical processes that brings the soap to life.
In a first phase called saponification, the fats – mainly consisting of glycerides and fatty acids – are converted into sodium salt. This operation must be carried out so that the resulting product is of good quality and suitable to be subjected to further steps of processing. From this first phase, it is therefore necessary to obtain a soap mass generally containing 30% water, with the least possible amount of alkali and electrolytes, as well as glycerol whose recovery is an economic factor of this process.
That mass is then further cooked, washed and liquified before being poured into soap molds and left to cure until the bars are hand-cut in our workshop.
Just as in the tradition then, we still produce soap with this ancient and natural method, which ensures a final product of top quality with excellent cleaning power but also serves as a very gentle and soothing treatment that results in softer and more elastic skin with repeated usage over time.
