It’s an amazing feeling when you know your skin care products are 100% pure, natural and completely toxin-free. On my very first day of using Tropical Traditions skin care line from head to toe (soap, lotion, hair care), I literally felt different. It was such a great, invigorating feeling that I kept wanting to repeat the process daily. My 9 month old teething daughter constantly chews on my skin, mainly my shoulder and arms, so it’s an added bonus to be absolutely confident that what she may be consuming isn’t harmful to her tiny, susceptible body.
Tropical Traditions, my one and only coconut oil source, sent me an assortment of their handmade bar soaps to review, and boy are they addicting. All of their unscented soaps are made from a saponified version of their Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and nothing else. Add high-quality organic essential oils like lavender (my favorite), lemon, and tea tree oil to their scented varieties or natural patchouli for healthy hair in their Shampoo Bars and you have the entire ingredient list. That’s it. Simple, pure, and perfect for sensitive skin types.
Other than the minimalist ingredient list, how do these soaps compare to other commercialized soaps? In my opinion, they:
- produce a much richer and thicker lather (a little bit goes a very long way)
- rinse easily
- are moisturizing
- last longer
- leave your skin feeling truly clean, healthy and soft
I am still having some trouble adjusting to the Shampoo Bar. The idea of shampoo in a bar form is just strange for me as a woman. My husband, on the other hand, commented on how easy, convenient and fast it was to use a bar soap rather than a bottle of shampoo. It must be a “guy thing!” Patchouli is not my favorite scent, but these bars are so lightly scented that I had to double-check if my particular bar contained any at all.
From Tropical Traditions…
There are very few soaps made from 100% coconut oil, and most soaps on the market today that are made from coconut oil are made from highly refined versions of these oils, and may contain chemical solvents that were used in the refining process. Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil is traditionally made from fresh organic coconuts, and independent laboratory tests show that it has a higher level of antioxidants than other coconut oils. While other coconut oil soaps may exist in the market place containing refined coconut oil, few if any will be made with high quality Organic Virgin Coconut Oil.
All of Tropical Traditions products are fabulous (my favorites are still the coconut oil and soaps), so why haven’t you tried them yet?
