What makes this bar of soap stand out is the combination of seaweed, shea butter, rose geranium and yes a little bit of activated charcoal as well. Seaweed is bio-available which means that the beneficial nutrients in seaweed are easily and readily absorbed by our bodies.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Seaweed has been proven to tighten loose skin, minimize the appearance of pores, has the highest concentration of anti-oxidants than any other plant and improves collagen production by 200% in aging skin. It also can moisturize and calm the skin. Seaweed sinks into your skin deeper, because of its bioavailability, where it really can make a difference. Pure shea butter is effective in reducing inflammation and redness. Shea butter contains important nutrients such as vitamins A and E and other valuable phytonutrients vital to the skin’s healing process. In fact, many people report that using shea butter after surgeries helps with quick healing of incisions – more so than any other method. Rose geranium is wonderful at balancing the skin’s natural oil production. It also joins forces with seaweed in that it minimizes the appearance of enlarged pores. It also enhances circulation, promotes faster fading of scars and blemishes as well as soothes uncomfortable skin ailments.
