Now we all know that hygiene around food preparation is super vital. But we thought, why not make this an enjoyable experience, as well as a necessity? So many soaps out there draw the moisture, as well as the germs, out of your skin and leave your hands feeling dry and worn out. However, we have combined a mixture of hydrating elements and fresh-smelling essential oils, to bring you the finest skin-friendliest soap you could wish for; Introducing, our fairtrade certified Cooks Soap. With the delicious meals your hands help you make, we feel they deserved a bit of appreciation.
We have used Coconut Oil in all of our soap as it is an absolute showstopper when it comes to skin, and even hair (though in this case we are just talking about soap!). It is rich in the all-nourishing Vitamin E, which means it nourishes and moisturises your skin, and it’s natural foaming properties are stupendous, meaning that it is super powerful at lifting away germs and dirt from your hands. It is antimicrobial, antibacterial and antifungal, which means that it will effectively create barriers upon your skin to help keep the germs out, therefore leaving you with clean hands and free to get back to your food.
It may come as a surprise, but one of the ingredients within our Cooks Soap is Oatmeal, as it turns out it’s not just a tasty breakfast. Oatmeal works as a natural exfoliating agent to effectively remove dead skin cells from your skin which is super important when dealing with food and maintaining good hygiene in the kitchen. It is also helpful in absorbing bad odour! So say goodbye to any sign of garlic hands with this luxurious soap.
We have chosen Peppermint Essential Oil and Lime Essential Oil for this soap, that offers your hands a lovely minty fresh citrus scent – both aromas that remind us of tasty food! Both these oils have antiseptic and antibacterial properties so while giving off their refreshing smells, they also are helpful in cleansing the skin. Peppermint contains Menthol which is what creates that heavenly cooling effect that soothes the skin, an absolute must for hands that are on the go all the time, chopping and prepping.
Other ingredients include: Shea Butter, a natural emollient; Canola Oil, providing a lovely creamy lather; Olive Oil, helping to form the hard soap bar; Sodium Hydroxide, an essential ingredient in soap-making; Cocoa Butter, to add firmness and further moisture to the bar; Avocado Oil, rich in moisturising vitamins; Hemp Oil, great for the skin and helps to make a luxurious lather; and Grapefruit Seed Extract, a great antioxidant.
