Soap is naturally antimicrobial by its nature of action - it is cleansing, mechanically, by the physical action of washing and rinsing, thereby removing surface contamination, and it has surfactant properties that are chemically damaging to microbes.
ALL soaps exhibit these properties and are vital in terms of the increased hygiene requirements during the current outbreak.
It makes sense, however, that the instant sanitising effect of soap can be augmented by the further addition of agents, synthetic or naturally derived, that stay on the skin, in part, even after rinsing to provide additional protection between washing.
The antimicrobial agents in this recipe are a combination of Lavender and Tea tree essential oils. 3% total - when we wash our hands, it's estimated that approximately 1% of the product stays on the skin - in terms of essential oils, the simple proof of this is to just smell you hands after washing.
Natural soaps need to breathe. Our soaps are packaged in as little as possible to promote hardening and prevent sweating.
