The Benefits of Handmade Soap for Hormonal Skin

Discovering the Power of Persephone, Oatmilk, and Pine Tar Soaps

Hormonal skin can be a real challenge. Whether you're dealing with breakouts, dryness, or excessive oiliness, finding the right skincare products can feel like a never-ending quest. Enter handmade soap—a natural, effective solution that can help bring balance and relief to your skin. In this blog post, we’ll explore the benefits of using handmade soap for hormonal skin, focusing on three of our exceptional handmade soaps: Persephone, Oatmilk, and Woodsman our handmade Pine Tar Soap.

Why Handmade Soap?

Handmade soaps are crafted with care and contain natural ingredients that are gentle on your skin. Unlike commercial soaps, which often contain harsh chemicals and synthetic additives, handmade soaps are free from irritants that can aggravate skin issues. They are rich in glycerin (unlike commercial soaps this isn't added, it is created naturally during the saponification process), a natural moisturiser that helps keep your skin hydrated, and our handmade soaps include beneficial ingredients that cater to specific skin needs.

  • Chamomile Tea: Known for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, chamomile tea can help calm irritated skin and reduce redness, making it ideal for hormonal breakouts and sensitive skin.
  • Dried Nettles: Nettles are rich in vitamins and minerals, and they offer natural astringent properties that help tighten pores and reduce oiliness. They also have anti-inflammatory effects, which can help reduce the severity of hormonal acne.
  • Wheatgrass: Packed with antioxidants and nutrients, wheatgrass helps detoxify the skin and promote healing. Its high chlorophyll content can also assist in balancing the skin's oil production, leading to fewer breakouts and a more even complexion.
