Body Soap - New Zealand

Our enthusiasm for bar soap is unwavering as we champion its return from being considered an outdated household item. Beyond the nostalgic appeal, bar soap offers numerous benefits. Let’s celebrate the humble bar soap for its dependable efficiency, simple charm, and practical effectiveness. In today's complex world, its timeless relevance remains significant.

Benefits of using bar soap

Bar soaps are excellent for thoroughly cleaning the skin, effectively removing dirt, oil, and impurities. They tend to be more eco-friendly due to their minimal packaging and are often made with natural, moisturising ingredients.

Proper usage of bar soap

To use bar soap correctly, wet the soap and your body first. Rub the soap between your hands or onto a washcloth or loofah to create a rich lather. Apply the lather to your body, gently scrubbing in circular motions. Rinse thoroughly with water.

Can bar soap be used on the face?

Some bar soaps are specially formulated for facial use and are gentle enough for the delicate skin on your face. Always check the label to ensure the soap is designed for facial use to prevent irritation.

How to store bar soap to prolong its lifespan

Store bar soap in a well-drained soap dish to keep it from sitting in water. Letting the soap dry between uses helps it last longer and reduces the risk of bacterial growth.

Types of bar soap

Clay and charcoal soaps: These soaps are excellent for deep cleansing as they draw out excess oils, dirt, and impurities. The absorbent properties of clay and activated charcoal help unclog pores, promoting clear and radiant skin. Check out FZOTIC’s range of French clay soaps for these benefits.

Glycerine soaps: Known for their translucent appearance, glycerine soaps are humectants that attract and lock in moisture. They are mild and gentle on the skin, preventing excessive dryness. Triumph & Disaster’s A+R Soap is a perfect example, so gentle it can even be used on the face.

Milk soaps: Enriched with high fat content, milk soaps are incredibly moisturising. Santa Maria Novella offers exceptional products in this category, providing rich hydration and nourishment for the skin.

Mitchell’s Wool Fat Soap: This soap deserves a special mention for its central ingredient, sodium tallowate, derived from animal fats. It is highly moisturising and enhanced with lanolin, a natural emollient found in wool that softens and hydrates the skin. It’s our most nostalgic soap, beloved for its classic scent and rich, creamy sensation.
