Vegan Hemp Soap
Infused Castilian Soap Bars – Rose Fragrance & Wild Hemp
This vegan hemp soap bar was Handcrafted & Handcut in Annandale, N.J.
The Wild Hemp infused in this soap was gifted from our friends in Minnesota.
In honor of them I used Rose Fragrance Oil.
The Star Infusion though is Wild Minnesota Hemp Oil.
Hemp Oil moderates oil production making it perfect for most skin types as it can moisturize without clogging your pores.
It can even help to balance out oily skin, hydrating it and regulating the skin’s oil production.
Dryness can also cause your skin to overproduce oil, which in turn, can stimulate acne. Hemp oil can prevent dry skin without clogging pores.
This helps reduce acne that’s caused by excess oil. It also, moisturizes and soothes inflammation.
One of the omega-6 fatty acids that hemp oil contains is gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory while simultaneously encouraging skin growth and new cell generation.
This can help to calm inflammation and irritation on the skin, including acne and some conditions like psoriasis, while keeping the skin nourished and moisturized.
Part of what makes hempseed oil so beneficial to the skin is that it’s rich in omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids.
In addition to moisturizing and soothing the skin, hemp oil has anti-aging properties.
Hemp oil can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well as prevent signs of aging from developing.
Clearly, this makes Hemp Oil, a beautiful ingredient in this castile soap.
My Vegan Hemp Soap Bars are whole body focused.
It’s not enough to just clean your body. I want you to have a Whole Body Experience when you take a shower, wash your hair, or even just your hands. I want you to pause and allow the Passive diffusion of the soap to hit your Senses, ignite your brain receptors and alter your atmosphere.
Everything should be intentional. Even the simple soap bar we put on our body.
There are many myths on how personal care products effect and penetrate into our skin. A quick search on the matter will leave you confused and unsure of whos giving you the facts. Unfortunately, there aren’t many regulations in the beauty industry at all, especially around marketing language, so brands can kind of say whatever they want. So how can we be sure are products are safe?
Dr Chan Yung, a dermatologist at Apex Dermatology Institute in Tsim Sha Tsui, States:
” Since some chemicals can enter your bloodstream through topical application, its best to avoid products that contain harmful ingredients such as parabens, SLS, a preservative called methylisothiazolinone, and heavy metals, My advice is to read the label when buying your skin care products – even organic or ‘chemical-free’ ones. Such descriptions may sound appealing, but some of these products may contain harmful preservatives.”
Common Toxins Found in your everyday Soap Bars Are Sodium Laureth Sulfate-carcinogenic nitrosamine – SLS is linked to skin irritations and allergic reactions, like eczematous dermatitis, leaving sensitive skin damaged and irritated Triclosan -in low doses, can impact thyroid hormone concentrations, disrupting the endocrine system. It is also classified as a skin, eye, and lung irritant. 1,4 Dioxane– known eye and respiratory tract irritant that readily penetrates the skin. Parabens – they have a tendency to mimic hormones, which can be found to disrupt the function of hormones naturally found in your body. Ureas- releases formaldehyde – which is a known human carcinogen, human respiratory toxicant, skin irritant and an environmental toxin. With chemicals as toxic as these, I’d look twice at that soap label next time.
