Bodhi Bars: Saponified olive, coconut, and palm oils, with shea butter and essential oils.
Olive,Coconut, and Palm oils provide a perfect balance of hardness, lather, cleansing, and conditioning properties. The addition of shea butter gives our soaps ultra-moisturizing qualities.
A bonus of the natural soap making process is the production of gylcerine. Glycerine is a natural by-product of soap. It is also incredibly good for your skin. Commercial soap companies remove the glycerine from their soaps, to be sold separately to the cosmetic industry. At Bodhi Handmade Soaps we keep the glycerine in, so each bar is loaded with all-natural goodness.
Coconut Oil: Coconut oil provides an abundant lather for natural soaps with natural cleansing properties.
Olive Oil: The most popular base oil for natural soap makers. Olive Oil prevents the loss of your skin's natural moisture, softens skin and attracts external moisture to your skin. It helps keeps your skin soft and supple.
Palm Oil: Palm oil creates a hard bar of soap that cleans well and is very mild.
Shea Butter: A natural fat obtained from the fruit of the Karite tree. Rich in Vitamins A, E, and F. Known as nature's ultimate moisturizer. It is nourishing, soothing, and healing while protecting the skin from other elements.
