Spearmint Basil and Clove Exfoliating Natural Bar 150g

Regular price £9.00 On Sale

Description

Our Spearmint, Basil and Clove Exfoliating Natural Soap bar is traditionally made with 100% coconut oil and uses our Extra Virgin Fair Trade Organic Raw Coconut Oil.

It includes crushed coconut shell in the soap to naturally exfoliate (note this is different to the Coconut Shell Soap Dish) and we’ve chosen this particular blend of organic, pure essential oils for their refreshing scent.

  • SILVER Award from the 2019 Free From Skincare Awards
  • # 1 Ethical Best Buy, as voted by the Ethical Consumer Magazine - see here for details
  • No palm oil
  • Vegan
  • COSMOS organic
  • Cruelty Free
  • Fair Trade
  • Produced in the UK, by a company originally set up to provide employment and opportunity in an otherwise deprived area

Like all of our Soaps, this lathers really easily when rubbed between wet hands and can be used on the body as often as required. As with all soaps, avoid contact with eyes and if you should get some in your eyes, rinse thoroughly with clean water.

No Palm Oil

Many soaps list palm oil in their ingredients but we choose not to use it in ours, even sustainable palm oil, due to its negative impact on the environment, habitat, animals and eco-systems.

There’s hardly a day goes by without reading in the press about deforestation for palm oil production and the fact that the very existence of orangutans is threatened because of this. We're proud to confirm that no palm oil is used in our range of Natural Soaps.

How Soap is Made

The traditional way of making soap is by saponification – a chemical reaction between two natural ingredients: a fat (coconut oil) and a strong alkali (such as sodium hydroxide).

This ancient and original way of producing soap is exactly how Lucy Bee Soap is made. We use sustainable, natural ingredients rather than petroleum and synthetic and artificial ingredients, which is the way many beauty and cleansing bars are created.

The process involved in making our Soap is as follows:

  1. Coconut oil is mixed with sodium hydroxide, an alkali, during a process known as saponification which creates a stable soap base to form into pellet shapes, called soap noodles.

  2. The pure, organic, essential oils and crushed coconut shell are added, where applicable and mixed into the soap noodles.
  3. The soap noodles pass through a machine to form one continuous block, which is then cut into smaller, individual soap bars.
  4. Our logo is stamped into each bar and then checked to make sure each bar is perfect.
  5. The individual bars are now wrapped in recyclable flow wrap, to keep each bar fresh, before being placed into its own recyclable, biodegradable box, ready for you to choose.

Lucy Bee Soap is Free From:

  • Palm oil – has environmental issues and adversely affects local livelihoods
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) – man-made and can strip skin of its natural oils
  • Artificial fragrances – derived from products which can be potentially harmful to health
  • Preservatives – have been linked to health problems
  • Petroleum – can be carcinogenic

Packaging

To protect the unique formulation of our soaps and to prolong the scent of the essential oils (where applicable), these need to be wrapped in a recyclable PP plastic sachet/flow wrap, which we then pack in an FSC recyclable, compostable and biodegradable card carton.

Soaps are normally made from palm oil and a soap made wholly from coconut oil, as ours is, is uncommon.

With its better foaming and lathering qualities than soaps made with palm oil, this unique formula means the soap can sweat, which presents something of a challenge to us in storing it, hence the use of flow wrap. Please be assured that the packaging weight is minimised,

We always aim to avoid plastic and to be as environmentally-friendly as we can - this is an area that we passionately care about and, as a small business, we are doing our very best. We have recently finished successful trials using a new biodegradable flow wrap, which we will use for future productions.

FAQs

  1. Being made of coconut oil, will this soap clog the drains?

Our Soap manufacturer confirms, “The coconut oil in the soaps will not clog drains as it is carried away by the soap suds in rinsing."

2. Are Lucy Bee Soaps nut free?

Our range of soaps are nut and peanut free in their ingredients. However, they are produced in an environment which uses nut oils (such as almond oil and argan oil, for example) for other brands’ soaps and whilst the production line is cleaned thoroughly before our Soaps are made, this production line is not cleaned to food grade standard.

We would always advise to err on the side of caution and if in doubt, do a small patch test on skin before using our Soaps.

3. Is the glycerin in your Soaps from palm oil?

No, it isn’t. The glycerin in the Lucy Bee Soap isn’t actually added, it is created by the reaction of the base chemical on coconut oil.

Saponification is the process where a fat is treated with an alkali which is the traditional way to produce soap. Coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides, such as lauric acid, capric acid, caprylic acid and myristic acid, and these are converted to glycerin.

Rest assured, there is no palm oil in our Soap, and we would never use it in any Lucy Bee product.

4. Can I use this soap on my face?

We don’t recommend using our Soap on your face. The purpose of soap is to remove dirt, grime and oil from the skin. Though our Soaps are natural, if you were to use these on your face, over time it could be harsh on the face. The skin here is thinner than the rest of your body and can become sensitive.

We have a skincare range out which is dermatologically approved, and this is our recommended option for use on your face.

5. What is the significance of the essential oils being organic?

All the essential oils used in the Lucy Bee product range are Certified Organic oils sourced from all over the world. Being Organically Certified means, all of the plant raw materials required for oil production are sustainably cultivated and monitored by certifying bodies from seed all the way through to the oil. Being Certified will also mean that no nasty pesticides are being used and therefore there would be minimal impact on insects’ and bees’ life cycle and habitats.

    I love this soap! I have purchased the 4 pack a few times and this is my favourite. I am prone to eczema and dry skin and used to find it hard to find decent soaps that don’t cause a flair up but since using this range my skin is so much better. The lather in all the soaps is incredible and they last such a long time too! Definitely recommend and will definitely buy again.

    Hi Sharon, Thank you so much for sharing this and it's great to hear that our Soap has helped relieve your skin. Like you, I love the Spearmint Exfoliating too - it smells good enough to eat (but don't of course!) and we were thrilled to receive a Silver of this bar at the 2019 Free From Skincare Awards, where our Fragrance Free won Gold. Being free from palm oil is a plus for me, too, as well as being certified Vega, Cruelty Free, COSOMS Organic and Fair Trade. Thanks again, Petrina

    Love love love this soap,been converted from a shower gel user to soap instead,fantastic product.

    Thank you for your great review! I'm glad to hear that you've been converted to bar soap instead of shower gels, they're much better for the environment and we find that our bar soap is much more nourishing on the skin throughout the day. I hope you keep enjoying the range! Tom

    I just love this soap so much. I tried the 4 pack and loved this one the best even though they’re all lovely. It smells really fresh, lathers beautifully and the coconut shell gives a lovely exfoliation. I can’t get enough of it and the fact it has no palm oil truly makes it a must buy. Love love love.

    Hi Catherine, Thank you for your lovely review. The exfoliating Soap is my favourite so i'm happy to hear you also feel the same way! It is particularly good when you have applied suncream as the coconut shell really works in getting all the cream off. - Tom

    Nancy B

    Especially like taking this on holiday with me for exfoliating the skin. It’s my fave Lucy bee soap!

    HI Nancy, I agree, our Spearmint, Basil & Clove Exfoliating Soap is perfect to take on holiday and is really effective at getting off sun cream. Also, if you're only taking hand luggage with its restrictions on liquids, then this soap bar is ideal. It smells divine too and leaves your skin feeling clean, refreshed and moisturised. This particular Soap recently won Silver at the 2019 Free From Skincare Awards (our Fragrance Free won Gold) and all of our Soaps are palm oil free and certified Vega, Cruelty Free, COSMOS Organic and Fair Trade.

    Love these soaps! They don’t dry out your skin and there is no irritation. Would definitely recommend!

    Anneke

    I LOVE this soap. I bought it a while ago but was waiting until I finished my shower gel before I started, I wish I hadn’t waited so long. This soap lathers up like nothing I’ve tried before. I can feel it exfoliating my skin as I use it and moisturising it at the same time. My skin feels so soft after using, none of that dry & tight feeling. Another plus is it’s making my bathroom smell great. Don’t hesitate to buy this, you won’t be disappointed.

    Hi Anneke, thank you for such a great review! Our Spearmint Exfoliating Soap won Silver in the 2019 Free From Skincare Awards (and our Fragrance Free won Gold), for how well it lathered, the quality of it, and how it smelt and left the skin feeling. All of our soaps are also #1 Ethical Best Buy in the UK for soaps. It is incredible how amazing it leaves the bathroom smelling as well. Thank you again for your review. Daisy

    Eleanor W

    This is one of my favorites.took on holiday ( firstly made suitcase and clothes smell lovely ) added bonus, but importantly it was great for taking of the suncream each day. I think it prolongs the tan as it's so gentle but does exfoilate. The smell too is so fresh and lasting , so whilst on holiday ordered three more. X

    Lovely smell! Felt very cleansed during although it did feel a bit weird and almost drying BUT once rinsed and dried, my skin definitely felt softer and this was just after one use so looking forward to seeing how it performs after continuous use!

    This soap is the best. It cleans and partly feels like it exfoliates. It makes me happy when washing as I know it’s not stripping my skin of any goodness. It’s a great buy. Lasts a long time as it foams up generously and smells yummy!!

    Karen P

    This is a beautiful, luxurious and creamy soap. My skin was silky and soft after one use. Knowing the ingredients are natural, pure and organic, it is a pleasure to use. Exfoliating products can be harsh but I found this soap gentle enough for facial use.

    Thank you for your feedback Karen, we are pleased to hear how much you are enjoying the Exfoliating bar soap. This is my favourite fragrance! The lather is heavenly, and it's great to know no Palm Oil is used. I have not used shower gel in months now, and only use Lucy Bee bar soaps. I hope you enjoy trying the other fragrances! Rian.

    My favourite soap to use in the bath, the scent is amazing and leaves skin feeling great. Also the recyclable box is beautiful.

    as above review. Love the smell, the freshness and mostly the feel of the shell and knowing that I’m not rinsing off harmful plastics and chemicals down the drain.

    Thanks for your review, Eaman. We're pleased to hear you are enjoying your exfoliating soap, the crushed coconut shell definitely does add something a little bit more to the bar and we're glad you think so too. Enjoy! Georgia

    I ordered the peppermint exfoliating soap and can honestly say it's the best soap ever! So creamy and lathers up lovely and it smells amazing and leaves my skin so soft. The fact that it's completely ethical is another factor why I will definitely be buying this soap again. 100% recommend.

    Thank you for your brilliant review, Kirsty. The exfoliating soap is my favourite too, I love the crushed coconut shell in it. Enjoy! Georgia
