Hop To It - Grapefruit IPA All Natural Beer Soap, 4 oz
This beer soap is made using an IPA. We love this beer and were very excited to make a soap to complement the spicy hops with a bright citrus. The result is a bar of beer soap that has great lather, a wonderful aroma and leaves your skin, perfectly, naturally clean.
Why beer soap? Well, a better question would be why not!? Beer contains amino acids that help soften skin, hops which soothe skin and act as a natural preservative, polyphenols which give the soap a natural antibacterial quality and contains natural sugars that improve lather. The alcohol in the beer is flashed out of the product and therefore does not add any drying effect to the end product. All in all, beer is wonderful natural addition to soap.
A look at our key ingredients:
Olive Oil contributes to the hardness of the soap, promotes lather stability, and adds a high conditioning and moisturizing quality to the soap. Olive oil holds moisture close to the skin and forms a breathable film to prevent loss in internal moisture.
Palm Oil contributes to the hardness of the soap, helping to create a bar that lasts longer, promotes lather stability, and adds a silky feel to the soap.
Sunflower Oil adds a wealth of vitamins and minerals to the soap which is great for skin health. Sunflower Oil holds moisture close to the skin and forms a breathable film to prevent loss in internal moisture.
Coconut Oil contributes to the hardness of the soap, helping to create a bar that lasts longer, and provides a fluffy, bubbly lather to the soap, even in hard water conditions.
Castor Oil is used to contribute to stable lather and for its ability to draw moisture to your skin. High in ricinoleic fatty acid, it draws in water and holds it to your skin.
Shea Butter contributes to the hardness of the bar, lather stability and is wonderful for skin conditioning. Shea contains a large percentage of ingredients that do not react with lye, thus remaining in the soap to nourish your skin. Shea butter is said to be beneficial for treating dry skin, blemishes, skin discoloration, scars and wrinkles.
Beer - The skin-drying alcohol is removed in the soap making process and you are left with rich extracts of wheat, barley malt which promote healthy skin and hops, a natural anti-bacterial. Any natural sugars in the beer also act as a lather enhancer. This is a great addition to the soap and makes beer soap very special.
