Perfect for itchy and sensitive skin, this soap uses the old calamine lotion of zinc, castor oil and olive oil. Zinc is incredibly calming on the skin and it is essential for maintaining healthy skin so really this soap is a must for those of us with problem skin.
Ingredients: Saponified castor oil, saponified olive oil and zinc oxide.
If you have a skin condition that causes irritation, chances are that zinc is a fantastic natural treatment with magical properties. Any aggravated skin conditions from acne to psoriasis to nappy rash, zinc is a fantastic ingredient.
As well as all its other benefits, zinc is a natural astringent. That means it absorbs excess oil and tightens tissues which is another reason zinc is fantastic as an acne treatment. It helps tighten pores and prevent the buildup of sebum, reducing the formation of blackheads and pimples.
Zinc is also a natural anti-inflammatory, which means that it can assist in reducing all kinds of skin inflammation. Since rosacea is mostly an inflammatory disease of the skin on the face, the use of our calamine soap is a great daily topical treatment to help reduce redness and gently cleanse. Similar to rosacea, psoriasis is also an inflammatory skin condition and therefore the calamine soap is fantastic if you suffer from this condition. Same goes if you suffer from eczema as this gentle soap helps soothe itchy skin.
Zinc is also extremely beneficial to aid the healing of the skin. Because it is a naturally occurring mineral in the body, this means that it is suitable for use on children and infants. Our calamine soap is unscented and gentle for the use on babies, especially when suffering from nappy rash.
