Handmade soap for Blemish-free and Glowing skin with Green Tea + Calamine
Enrich your bath time ritual with our handmade soap for blemish-free and glowing skin. It is made with pure Japanese Matcha Green Tea (food grade) and Calamine powder. Let’s take a look at the science behind the ingredients used in the making of this handmade soap.
Matcha Green Tea relieves skin inflammation
Matcha contains high levels of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). This EGCG antioxidant has strong anti-carcinogenic, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory properties. The EGCG and catechins in matcha absorb into the skin to fight the sebum and bacteria that cause acne. You can follow up by applying our Lavender and Shea Butter Paraben-free Natural Moisturizer.
Green Tea reduces acne causing bacteria
One of the causes of acne is the presence of P.acnes bacteria on the skin. When matcha green tea powder is applied topically, its powerful anti-bacterial property gets to work. One study showed matcha reduced inflammation and acne by 89% over eight weeks. However, if you’re specifically looking for a handmade soap for acne, then consider trying our Black Magic Charcoal and Tea Tree soap.
Evens the skin-tone and improves elasticity
Matcha is anti-bacterial and thanks to high levels of EGCG, it reduces skin inflammation and evens the skin tone. The antioxidants are also known for increasing skin elasticity.
Impact on COVID-19 on Skin care
At The Good Routine, we are trying to formulate handmade soaps and skin care products with natural herbs that are anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. Our natural handmade soap recipes are formed around natural ingredients that offer the best protection to your skin without harsh chemicals.
Calamine Powder prevents skin infections
Zinc Oxide is the most active ingredient in Calamine Powder. This dries out the layer of the skin that has been affected by acne – this property is known as an antipruritic. Calamine Powder also reduces redness and swelling, and is also used as a mild antiseptic to prevent skin infections.
No Mineral Oils or Foaming Agents
Many commercial moisturizers and soaps are full of fillers like water, fatty alcohols, foaming agents and mineral oil. These products may increase the volume of the product and boost lathering. But they are without discernible long-term benefits for the skin. At The Good Routine, we consciously steer away from these artificial, cheap, toxic ingredients. Instead we turn to natural butters while formulating our handmade soap recipes.
Avoiding Mineral Oils & Alcohol in your skin care routine
Ingredients like alcohol will either evaporate away or remain sitting on the skin without penetration. This is not the case with natural butters like Shea Butter and Avocado Butter. They are absorbed in the skin easily. Mineral oil can actually clog pores and result in acne breakouts. There are also rising concerns among conscious consumers that mineral oil may be carcinogenic after long-term use. Choose your skin care products wisely.
