Why would we include turmeric in our By the Sea Soap Shoppe Turmeric Soap?

     Turmeric reduces inflammation, helps to clear up breakouts and reduce scars from acne. The shea butter reduces inflammation and helps to repair and heal damaged skin. It will not clog your pores, also helping to reduce breakouts. 

     Avocado oil is moisturizing - and sorry, but I'm going to repeat myself - it also helps to reduce inflammation! The combination of the turmeric, shea butter and avocado oil makes this a very good choice for you if you have problem skin.  

     Lightly scented with sweet orange essential oil, this soap is vegan with all-natural ingredients.

     Because the bars are handmade, you can expect to see slight differences in the size and weight. After the soap is made, it needs to cure for at least one month. However, after it's cured, some of the moisture in the bar continues to evaporate out. The bar shrinks a little; enough that the label we've wrapped around the bar becomes a bit loose and the weight decreases a little. The bar gets harder, and this is actually better. There is nothing lost from the soap, and it will not dissolve as quickly when it does get wet in a shower or bath. 

     Each bar is approximately 2 1/2 in. x 2 1/2 in. x 1 in. - or 6 cm. x 6 cm. x 2 cm. Weight is between 3.5 and 4 oz., or between 99 and 113 grams. 

     Please note that because this soap is handmade, the appearance of the soap may not be exactly as pictured. 


     Some of you might be wondering, "Lye? Isn’t lye dangerous? Won’t it harm my skin?”

     First - all actual soap is made with lye. No lye, no soap. (A lot of "soap products" in the stores are actually detergent. If you look at the labels, they are not called "soap". They are called "hand wash" or "body cleanser" or some such thing.)

     This could become a chemistry lesson, but to make it short - soap is made from lye, fats and liquid. When the lye mixes with the fats and liquid, some kind of chemical reaction goes on, and the lye and fats change into soap and glycerin. In the process, the lye is all used up. Even though lye is used to make the soap, there is no lye left in the soap at all.

     This is why soap made with lye is not dangerous, and it definitely won’t hurt your skin.
