Wild Sage and Co – Three flowers and Clay Soap – 100g (£3.95)
The Wild Sage and Co is a small, family run business, who make their soaps by hand in Herefordshire. The ingredients used are suitable for Vegans and all of the oils are cold pressed, to help preserve the quality and properties of the oils.
The base ingredients in this soap are a mix of olive oil, coconut oil and sunflower oil. They have then added three essential oils of Lavender, Geranium and Palmarosa. Finally, the most dominant and interesting ingredient in this particular soap, the superfine Australian Reef Red clay.
Now on the east coast of Australia where the red clay is naturally found, locals and tourists cover their entire body in the stuff. The clay is naturally high in iron and rich in essential minerals, making an excellent, skin benefiting, clay mask.
This combined with the Lavender, Geranium and Palmarosa, create a cocktail of balancing, calming and anti-inflammatory oils that will aid calming angry skin and re balancing sebum. If you suffer from spots on the back, shoulders or chest, then washing with a soap containing these ingredients, could be particularly beneficial.
This soap lathers up to an unusual naturally red coloured foam, thanks to the clay. Don’t worry, the red clay might leave a red residue on your white bath, but it rinses away leaving without staining. The all-natural ingredients are gentle on the skin and the fragrance is mild. A pleasure to use.
