The main ingredient is the extra virgin olive oil, extracted from local olive trees that grow all around this area and give the Alentejo its characteristic landscape. To add to the moisturizing characteristics of the olive oil, the organic cold pressed coconut oil provides the cleansing and firming properties and creates a bubbly lather.
This soap is made without essential oils for a more sensitive skin. The olive oil is slowly infused in esteva (white cistus or rock rose) collected from our land, giving the soap a very mild sweet scent.
Esteva, also known as white cistus rose, has been used since ancient times for its ability to help heal wounds. Nowadays, it is widely used in aromatherapy to treat wounds, regulate acne-prone and oily skin, treat respiratory conditions, and balance the emotions. The leaves and stems of this beautiful plant release a sticky brown resin, known as labdanum, that is often used in the perfume industry for its ability to fixate the scents.
HOW TO USE
1.Wet the soap bar.
2.Rub the soap in the hands or directly on the body.
3.Always leave the soap on top of a sponge or a soap holder with holes for the water to go through, making sure that it dries well between uses. This is the most important step for the soap to last a longer time. If it doesn’t dry properly, it becomes soft and every time it comes off a lot more quantity than needed.
