Shea butter creates a layer that seals in moisture. Castile Soap is used as the base ensuring a luxurious lather. Plus it’s much better for the environment as it is derived from natural ingredients that break down easily. Oatmeal and Dried Chamomile act as an exfoliator. Orange essential oil is an effective skin brightener and toner (it also smells fantastic!).
