Friendly Soap Tea Tree Essential Oil Soap – 95g (£1.99)
If you’re new to Friendly Soap, let me give you a quick bit of background. This new brand is run by two men, Geoff and Rob, who make all their soaps by hand up in Yorkshire. Their entire range is Vegan Society Approved, Cruelty Free and they have chosen not to use any Palm Oil in any of their soaps.
So to this, their Tea Tree soap. Did you know that there are over 100 different varieties of Tea Tree oil. Only one variety, Melaleuca alternifolia, contains the complete list of properties making it naturally anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-septic, anti-viral, a fungicide and insecticide. Melaleuca alternifolia, native to New South Wales in Australia, is a species of tree or shrub from the myrtle family. So when you are buying any tea tree product, you must check the ingredients and know exactly what you’re buying.
The mix of olive oil, coconut oil and shea butter provides foaming white bubbles, cleansing and moisturising properties. The fourth biggest ingredient in the bar is the tea tree oil (Melaleuca alternifolia). The fifth and final ingredient is turmeric powder, an unusual ingredient commonly associated with cooking, but has been used on the skin in India for generations to treat fungal conditions, bruising, leech bites, inflammatory skin conditions and infected wounds.
This soap is good for all skin types, but with the added tea tree and turmeric, makes this particularly suitable for sporty, active people, sweaty teenagers with sweaty pits and feet (athlete’s foot). Anyone dealing with spots on the back, shoulders and chest, the tea tree will help fight bacteria on the skin. Also if you have any little cuts or wounds on the skin, washing with a tea tree soap, aids the healing process. A genuine pleasure to use and absolutely Del Brown Approved!
