Honey Beeswax Natural Soap

Made with local Arizona honey and beeswax, this natural soap is a moisturizing treat for your skin!

Living in Arizona USA, I've learned to appreciate any moisture my skin can get! I've formulated the recipe for this soap to be moisturizing and soothing with a great lather.

Beeswax: has emollient, or softening and soothing properties and helps the skin retain moisture.

Honey: A natural humectant, meaning it attracts moisture, keeping it locked inside, close to the skin.
Honey is known to aid in retaining elasticity without drying out your skin. A natural antioxidant with natural antimicrobial properties.

Coconut oil:  A beautiful natural emollient, moisturizer, conditioner and protector of our skin.

Castor oil: Great conditioner and moisturizer. It is unique in the fact that it is almost entirely composed of ricinoleic fatty acid found in no other oils and possesses an affinity for water molecules, which means that it attracts and holds moisture in the skin, a humectant.

Olive oil:  Keeps the skin soft and supple with its conditioning and moisturizing properties  as it attracts external moisture to the skin.

Soybean/Palm oil blend: lends a silky feel, cleans well and is mild, high in linoleic and oleic acid.

This was a fun soap to make, I used bubble wrap to create the honeycomb effect on top and bottom.

If you don't want to make this soap yourself, you may order from my etsy shop.

Enjoy,   Anna
