Sodium Palmate

It has several benefits that enhance your skincare routine. Sodium palmate „lifts“ oils, dirts and other impurities off of the skin so that they can be washed away. It’s known to be gentle and good for lots of different skin types. It is a type of sodium salt that is derived naturally from the fatty acids found in palm oil. It is made in a process called saponification and is used as one of the main ingredients in bar soaps. It has been used for skin hygiene for centuries.

Sodium Palm Kernelate

It is used as a natural skin cleanser. It can help to lock in the moisture of your skin and is suitable for even extremely sensitive skin types. Together with Sodium Palmate it is used as a main ingredient in bar soaps. Sodium palm kernelate is the sodium salt of palm kernel acid. It is also made using a saponification process with palm kernel oil, which is obtained by extracting oil from the kernel or seed of the palm, the same plant which provides palm oil.

Almond Oil

Almond oil is full of vitamin E, and it’s a great source of magnesium, phosphorus, and copper. The antioxidant-rich oil is known for its free radical fighting abilities. It’s also anti-inflammatory and boosts immunity. Almond oil soaks in quickly and is a powerful moisturizer, so it can be used on the face or body. To find it in our products, it appears in the list of ingredients on the packaging, under the name Prunus Amygdalus Sativa Kernel (Sweet Almond) Oil.


Glycerin, also known as glycerol, is a natural compound derived from vegetable oils or animal fats. It’s a clear, colorless, odorless, and syrupy liquid with a sweet taste. Glycerin is a humectant, a type of moisturizing agent that pulls water into the outer layer of the skin from deeper levels of your skin and the air. In skin care products, glycerin is commonly used with occlusives, another type of moisturizing agents, to trap the moisture it draws into the skin.

Citric Acid

Citric Acid is a naturally-occurring compound found especially in citrus fruits such as lime, lemons, oranges, and grapefruits. It is produced commercially for specific industrial applications within the food, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical sectors. Citric Acid is often used in cosmetic products formulations to stabilize the pH levels, ensuring optimal stability for a safe-to-use product and boosting the longevity of cosmetic products.


Water is a transparent, tasteless, odorless, and nearly colorless chemical substance, which is the main constituent of Earth’s hydrosphere and the fluids of all known living organisms. It is vital for all known forms of life, despite not providing food, energy or organic micronutrients. Water is an excellent solvent for a wide variety of substances both mineral and organic, as such it is widely used in industrial processes, and in cooking and washing. Water is used in almost all leave-on and rinse-off cosmetic products.


Talc is a naturally occurring mineral, mined from the earth, composed of magnesium, silicon, oxygen, and hydrogen. Talc has many uses in cosmetics – it may be used to absorb moisture, to prevent caking, to make products opaque, or to improve the feel of them.
