French: parfum) is a mixture of fragrant essential oils or aroma compounds, fixatives and solvents, used to give the human body, animals, food, objects, and living-spaces an agreeable scent.
Lavender essential oil and a beautiful purple pigment make for a rich lavender experience. Lavender essential oil is known to be analgesic, antidepressant, antiseptic, and antiviral as well as a bactericide, decongestant, deodorant, and fungicide. Lavender is also known to soothe minor burns and sunburn.
Olive Oil: A traditional emollient used in soap because it is mild and gives a "moisturized feel" to the soap. Olive oil is imported generally from Spain and the European region.
Pure soap made of olive oil is very mild; it is durable and can be used on any skin type to aid with retaining moisture and elasticity. Taking advantage of the natural moisturising properties of olive oil, the soap soothes and nourishes the skin. Olive oil can also improve the appearance of acne scars. Massage olive oil soaps over scarred skin.

Wrinkles, fine lines and scars repairing, Antioxidant, Anti-inflammatory, Deeply moisturizing, Stimulating for the superficial microcirculation, skin strengthening, Skin protecting, UV protecting, Skin regenerating, Collagen production stimulating (makes the skin stronger, more supple and younger), Minor cuts and burns healing, Muscle ache healing.
Organic Palm: When we use palm, we use organic "sustainable" palm, for the reasons of deforestation in tropical regions (see below for further explanation). Palm and similar, are pretty much necessary to make a harder, stable bar of soap that is appealing to the population majority.
"The Palm Oil" controversy and our thoughts... Over the past few years, "bio-diesel" (and the need for edible non-hydrogenated oils) has created a huge demand for oil... palm oil. Palm oil is only harvested significantly in tropical (rain forest) regions and thus... the problem. More demand for "palm oil" means more deforestation. When we became aware of this issue several years ago, we switched to an "organic palm oil" which is a renewable and sustainable resource. Our organic palm will not as likely contribute to the "palm thirsty" industry which ultimately demands more deforestation and is farmed organically thus not polluting the land. Much more could be said, but that is the brief explanation.
