|Ingredients List – olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, jasmine and ylang ylang EO|
Since I have started on the handmade soaps a couple of years back, I have been hooked on them and I love trying out every XYZ brand I come across. And, fortunately each one of them has been better than previous! And, then I came across the Goodseeds and I got many more brands to try out! (Oh yes, there are many other products coming up!)
Why I got into soap making is because my daughters aged 5 yrs and 1 yr have very sensitive skin and any soap I use caused dry flaky skin or dry patches with redness and itching on them.
Editor’s Note: This is so true. Read what I wrote about the difference between soaps and bathing bars.
Due to high glycerine content these soaps melt very easily and to keep it around longer you have to avoid holding it in the shower stream, and make sure that you store it on a well-draining soap dish, or else it can end up in a gloppy mess.
I make these soaps at home. Currently I have a batch that’s cured and ready to be used. You can check more pictures here. If you would like to buy them, let me know.
Editor’s Note: Thanks a lot Waseema for letting us know about the castile soaps. They are indeed really awesome!
Price: Rs 200
This was a brand which Roshni introduced to me and I got this soap from flipkart. Well, it did sound really exotic but unfortunately it fell flat during usage 🙁 No, its not that bad but its expensive.
Anyways, as you can see in the pic, it has a glycerin top part and is like a natural bar below it. And, one of its edges has a hard scrubbing side. And, it really is very harsh. I got scratches on my body after using it 🙁
Overall, the soap was fine. It did not moisturize my skin but it did not leave it dry either. But, overall, I did not fancy the soap much!
Olive Tree Virgin Olive Oil Soap
Price: Rs 99 (I guess!!)
|I didn’t know it could be used on hair as well, read it just now 🙂|
This product, I picked up from Ratandeep, a well-known supermarket in Hyderabad! It looks tempting, isn’t it?? Ok, its a solid white colored soap which doesn’t lather AT ALL. But, cleanses really well.
My guess is that it is probably the famed castile soap which is made of pure olive oil which lathers minimal and cleanses really well. Also, it lasts reallyyy long so the price justifies the product.
Yes, being used to lather, it was frustrating to use it in the beginning but now I like it a lot. I would definitely suggest you to pick up some if you stay in Hyderabad.
Since I am reviewing only handmade soaps, I shall keep it to Pros and Cons. So, lets start.
melts away easily so its better not to use it directly on body
