  • What salt soap?

    Ihoa hellivät suolasaippuat

    We put salt soaps on sale in the summer, maybe half by accident, as we always wanted handmade natural soaps in our selection. We didn't know much about the effects of salt soap beforehand. With Kirsi's guidance, we chose Rose salt soap , Mineral salt soap and Aloe vera sea salt soap from Soap & Balsam's selection.

    Some time passed and my neighbor happened to ask in the fall if we have salt soap for sale. I then told him what was available and he was excited to try it. My neighbor has previously had good experiences with the balancing, skin-moisturizing effect of salt soap. Especially in winter, when the skin dries out from the cold and moisturizer is used daily.

    My neighbor chose the Mineral salt soap, which is especially suitable for sensitive skin, and after a couple of showers he stated that "This is a particularly good product!" I remembered how my skin gets dry in the winter and sometimes I feel that even moisturizer doesn't help anymore (little problems brought by age, I guess). I was immediately excited to try the Aloe vera sea salt soap.

    The first positive note was that this bar of soap is incredibly solid in use. The skin can be easily soaped, but the piece remains firm and the soap does not come off on a wet surface at all. Another observation was that for a moment, now the skin is really clean. Is it Palmolive's shower soap half water, when it doesn't get the skin nearly as clean. A third note with time, a bar of soap is more than I imagined. The fourth and most important note, the skin does not really dry out as much as with regular soap. Only a little moisturizer is used now.

    It seems to be the case that when you're young, you endure it with the 'cheap' products of the cosmetics industry and junk food from fast food restaurants. With age, the body starts to react, in this case the skin and the stomach, and then you have to start making better choices at the latest.

    The magic of salt soap lies in the fact that the salt disinfects, treats, exfoliates and helps the skin to moisturize itself, naturally. When you add all the natural glycerin that is in Soap & Balsam's soaps, you get a great natural product.

    Luckily we came across Kirsi's handmade salt soaps and luckily I have neighbors who give good tips. Now there is one less problem, so the winter dry skin dilemma has been solved.

    I recommend trying it, Pauliina

    Ps. You can find more information about ingredients, etc. in the product descriptions of our store's soaps.
