Little Shaving Soaps
Well, here is a photo of the shaving soaps I made yesterday. This afternoon I got to wondering about Bentonite. I knew it was a clay that helps give shaving soap its "slip", but I wondered if it might have some other benefits for the skin.
You all may know this already, but it was a pleasant surprise to me.
"Up until recently because of the unique compound and the fact that it can only be found in certain areas the volcanic clay ash was only used in the most exclusive spas. One that only the wealthy and the famous could afford, now this secret has been opened to the masses in a number of beauty products that can make it possible for everyone to enjoy the wonders and benefits of this well kept skin purifying and beautifying secret.
Volcanic Ash clay can help to beautify and purify the skin. It draws away the toxins and poisons that every day life puts on your skin letting its natural beauty show through. It can also help to reduce the signs of aging, give the skin a youthful appearance, and glow. It also helps reduce the signs of sun damage and the appearance of cellulite and acne. It really is one of the best ways to treat your skin."
This is a partial quote from an article by Lori Matthews which can be found here:
After reading about the wonders of bentonite, and since I have a bag of the powdered wonder just sitting on my shelf, I decided to include it in a batch of my Oatmeal & Honey complexion soap. It will be ready to ship in four weeks, but you know I'll be using/testing it before then. I'm anxious for the "reducing the signs of aging" thing! Not to mention the cellulite thing! : )
I'll let you all know if I wake up someday suddenly sleek and beautiful! LOL
