Key Ingredients

Shea Butter is rich in vitamins, plant sterols, minerals and other nourishing compounds for the skin. The butter softens, protects against drying, and nourishes. High in vitamins E and A, shea butter locks in moisture, increases elasticity and evens out skin tone.

Coconut Oil is fantastic in soap, creating a big fluffy lather due to the high content of lauric acid. This enables it to cleanse without stripping your skin of its natural oils. It is also naturally anti-microbial and anti-fungal, making it perfect in a gardener’s soap.

Walnut Shell Powder is a great example of using the full raw ingredient. The shells would usually be discarded during food production, however they can be ground down to a fine powder the perfect size to be a great exfoliator. Fabulous at removing ingrained dirt and grime.

What is soap made from?

Traditional cold process soap is made from a mixture of fatty acids - in our case plant oils and butters - mixed with an alkaline solution. In a bar of solid soap, the alkali used is sodium hydroxide, which turns the fatty acids into sodium salts, or soap!

You can tell what the starting oils are in a soap by their Latin name. For example Sodium Olivate is the soap that is formed from Olive Oil, Sodium Cocoate is from Coconut Oil Butter and so on.

How do I look after my soap?

The best way to prolong the life of your Gardener's Scrub soap is to allow it to dry out between uses.

Using a freely draining soap dish is the best way to do this.

Lovely nicely scented soap but not as exfoliating as expected

This soap has a nice texture, gorgeous scent and lathered well but I bought it particularly for its exfoliating properties which I found lacking. Working as gardener my hands get pretty grubby as I don’t like wearing gloves and I was looking for something to help with the more ingrained dirt which unfortunately it didn’t, despite the pumice and Walnut kernels. But overall I liked this soap and would recommend it.
