Our Purple SeaMoss Soap is a moisture-rich handmade vegan soap, made with wild-crafted Jamaican purple sea moss and gold irish sea moss harvested off the coast of Jamaica.
Sea moss is nature's collagen, with amazing emollient properties that hydrate and soothe the skin, promoting a healthy, youthful appearance. It rehydrates the skin because of its high mineral content, leaving the skin silky and smooth. Vitamin K present in sea moss deals with keeping skin’s elasticity intact, and promoting collagen production. This helps to plump your skin, smooth out wrinkles, diminish dark circles and bags under the eyes, tone and fight the signs of aging.
Sea moss also helps treat several other skin disorders like sunburns, rashes, eczema, psoriasis.
Yaga Purple Sea Moss Soap is EXCELLENT for all skin types, from your hair, to intimate areas, and all ages, from babies to adults. Each soap is approximately 4.5 ounces.
Handcrafted cold process soap is soap in its purest and true form. True soap is created from the chemical reaction that occurs when combining a lye (sodium hydroxide) with oils and water. This chemical reaction is called "saponification" and transforms these base ingredients into soap.
What is the difference between cold process and glycerin soap?
Glycerin is a byproduct of the "saponification" or soap making process and therefore exists in every bar of handcrafted soap. Soap labeled as glycerin soap is created from a premade base that has already gone through the saponification process. These glycerin soap bases allow soapmakers to create soaps in many shapes and styles allowing for a lot of creativity in the finished product. Both cold process and glycerin soaps contain glycerin which is a humectant that attracts and retains moisture on your skin.
Why buy handcrafted soap?
Commercial manufacturers remove the nourishing glycerin by product from soap to add to other products. This is why so many commercial soap products strip your skin of its natural oils and leave it dry. Handcrafted soaps also contains no harsh chemical detergents or lathering agents. Only products created through the saponification process of combining lye, water and oils can be labeled and sold as "Soap". It is always a good idea to read product labels and ingredient lists.
Why did the bar I receive look different from the product picture?
Each bar is unique and many are cut by hand. The images show a representation of what the bars in the finished batch look like, but there may be some variations as no two bars are identical.
How long will my soap last?
Cold process bars will last longer than glycerin bars. All bars will last longer if allowed to dry out between uses. Do not let your soap sit in water but allow it to drain in an appropriate soap dish.
Do you use animal products in your soap or other products?
Our soaps use all vegetable, fruit and nut based oils and butters.
