Detoxifying & Toning handmade soap with Lemongrass + Nettle
Detox and tone your skin with our steam-distilled lemongrass essential oil soap and organic nettle powder. We source our lemongrass essential oil directly from the farmers in Himachal Pradesh to ensure the best quality produce.
Lemongrass to Detox your skin
Lemongrass is rich in brilliant antibacterial properties, thanks to its two important constituents: citral and geranial. This means lemongrass has the power to instantly clear your skin pores of dirt, germs and acne-triggering bacteria. Over time, it can also heal your skin of acne scars and dark spots, leaving your skin radiant and blemish-free. After a refreshing shower, apply our Lavender and Shea Butter Natural Moisturizer.
Minimise your skin pores
The refreshing herb is also rich in vitamin A and C, keeping your skin and hair glossy. It also has astringent properties which helps to minimise your pores as well as keep your oil levels balanced – which means, no pimples. If you’re specifically looking for a handmade soap for acne, then consider trying our Black Magic Charcoal and Tea Tree soap.
Impact on COVID-19 on Skin care
Lemongrass contains a treasure trove of antiseptic compounds, which effectively combat microbial agents. This keeps your skin protected against fungal infections and other germs. Our Detoxifying and Toning handmade soap can keep your skin healthy, refreshed and toned.
Soothes Skin Rashes
Thanks to its brilliant anti-inflammatory and emollient characteristics, lemongrass calms skin irritation due to dry weather. Winters can be particularly harsh for dry and sensitive skin. Using our handmade lemongrass and nettle soap can help make your skin soft, hydrated and calm. If you have very dry skin or if you suffer from eczema, then consider using our Lavender and French Clay handmade Soap for Eczema and Dry Skin.
Using Nettle powder in our Handmade Soap
The stinging nettle is an unpleasant weed that grows in plenty in Himachal Pradesh. But this prickly herb is packed with skin-loving properties. Nettle is rich in vitamins A, B, C, D, and K — all staples for a healthy skin. It is known for its tightening and firming qualities and helps in achieving even-toned skin. According to this report, many herbalists have found nettle to be a reliable herb in the treatment of dermatologic inflammatory conditions.
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.
