A gentle cruelty-free, vegan and SLS/SLES-free facial soap using specially selected ingredients such as Glycolic Acid, Aloe Vera and Rosa Gallica to help refine pores, target uneven skin texture and boost radiance.
Organic Aloe Vera
The juice from the inner gel of Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis Millar) is one of the most fascinating of all the botanical plant extracts. Modern science has only recently started to unlock the secrets of this wondrous plant and although not all of them are yet known, the ability of Aloe Vera to maintain healthy skin and preserve its beauty has been harnessed by humans for thousands of years.
According to research published by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), aloe vera also has moisturising and anti-aging benefits that can help decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time. It also contains amino acids, which can help tighten pores.
ALPHA HYDROXY ACID
Glycolic acid is an incredibly effective ingredient for exfoliation and cleansing the skin because it is an alpha hydroxy acid with a smaller molecule, which means it can penetrate deeper into the pores to dissolve excess dirt, sebum, and pore-clogging skin cells.
Rosa Gallica can do much more than simply smell nice. It actually has a large portfolio of effects and has countless positive beneficial properties. Among other things, Rosa Gallica extract locks in moisture, has regenerative effects, helps combat skin irritation, smooths small lines and keeps skin soft and silky.
RED CLAY FROM Sardinia
Red Clay from Sardinia
This 100% natural clay from Sardinia is rich in iron oxide, which gives it its distinctive red colour. It is known as a Montmorillonite clay and formed over millennia from deposits of volcanic ash, minerals and weathering.
Red clay helps purify your skin by removing impurities and other toxins from it. It contains important minerals which help stimulate elastin production in skin, soften it and soothe it as well, thus leaving your skin soft and healthy!

Frequently Asked Questions
Glycolic acid is really good ingredient for your skin which is why we have formulated glycolic acid into several products including our Glycolic Face Wash, Blackhead Peel Away Mask and Glycolic Egg. We get asked a lot of questions about glycolic acid, here are the most frequenctly asked questions and answers.
Glycolic acid is a very popular water-soluble Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) derived from sugar cane. Glycolic Acid is one of the most well-known and widely used alpha-hydroxy acids in skincare products.
Glycolic acid is able to exfoliate the skin buffing away dead skin cells that can build-up on the surface of the face and lead to skin concern, such as blemishes, dry patches and a dull complexion. Glycolic is able to dissolve the “glue” that is holding these skin cells to the face resulting in the unveiling a new, vibrant, brighter skin underneath.
Just like many skincare ingredients, consistency is key. Ensuring you are applying a glycolic acid enriched product regularly will have marked improvement on the overall appearance of your complexion. The speed in which glycolic acid shows skin improvement is another of the many benefits of this AHA. It is thought that you will begin to see results in 2-3 weeks and complete skin transformation in 6-8 months.
This really boils down to which skin type you have and whether or not your skin has the tolerance to use a chemical exfoliant. For combination and oily skin types, you may find that using glycolic acid every morning and evening will help unclog your pores and leave you feeling clean, but not stripped of any vital oils and water to keep the skin healthy. As for dry skin types, if you are wanting to use glycolic acid to help slough away any flaky patches of skin, you can try introducing the product into your routine by using it once a week and recording how your skin is reacting to the formula.
This depends on which product contains glycolic acid in its formula, but whether it is in a cleanser, face wash or toner, following glycolic acid with a hydrating serum that has high concentrates of hyaluronic acid (learn more about the benefits of hyaluronic acid here) to help moisturise and settle the skin, followed by a moisturiser if you wish to use one, then finally an SPF if it is during your daytime routine. Exfoliating the skin can make it UV sensitive and so always ensure you are protecting the skin from any sun damage by applying an SPF of 30+ every day.
