Savon Noir (Black Soap)
Upon opening my package received from MyPure this month I was impressed with the overall design of my Le Savonnier Marseillais Liquid Body Soap bottle – the black labelling with white/purple writing was simple yet elegant, a 500ml bottle with a dispenser pump cap making it easy to use.
I unscrewed the top to have a sniff, as I am all about smells, my nose tingled with delight from the wonderful natural lavender aroma. Now if you’re a lover of lavender like myself you will love this soap with its thick consistency. Le Savonnier Marseillais is 100% pure natural soap with pure essential oils, no added colours, synthetic fragrances, solvents or animal by products.
Aqua, Potassium Olivate, Potassium Cocate, Sodium Chloride, Glycerine, Parfum from Essential oils, Citric acid, Potassium hydroxide, D-Limonene, Linalool.
Le Savonnier Marseillais is a French company that manufactures and sells soaps of exceptional quality made with 72% pure olive oil and made by heating in a cauldron.
“This natural soap will remind you of frolicking in lavender fields during summer. It makes your skin soft with every use. A deep cleansing, exfoliating, nourishing, and foaming wash with added healing properties In its purest form. Ideal for all skin types”
I was eager to give it a try so that evening got my towel and headed to the bathroom to get my soap on. The rich soap lathered up very well, I wasn't sure if it was going to leave a horrible greasy slip on the skin with it having a high content of olive oil, so I was a bit apprehensive of the end result.
Well there was nothing to worry about, It was gorgeous, not oily at all, no residue left on the skin and a clean fresh feeling once rinsed off. The aroma filled the room; so perfect for a relaxing shower/bath before bed.
Benefits of lavender
The name lavender has been derived from the Latin word “lavare” which means “to wash”. This is due to the fact that it is commonly used in baths to purify the mind and spirit. Lavender is said to inhibit the bacteria that causes skin infection. Due to the antiseptic and antifungal properties found in lavender Essential Oil it can be used to treat and soothe various skin problems. It can also relieve nervous tension and promote restful sleep as well as other benefits.
Benefits of Olive for the skin
Olive oil contains Vitamins A & E providing necessary nourishment to thirsty cells while boosting the skin’s ability to fight infection & repair cell damage; natural humectants bind moisture that condition the skin’s surface.
