Natural Soap with Anti-Inflammatory Effect by Flora Secret

Natural Soap with Anti-Inflammatory Effect by Flora Secret Soap is one of the earliest surfactants made by man. Although modern cosmetic manufacturers offer an impressive selection of face and body cleansers, soap still remains a popular skincare product because it is effective and affordable. If you have oily, combination or problem skin, you should check out natural soap with anti-inflammatory effect.

In chemistry, the term “soap” refers to a salt of a fatty acid. In a domestic setting, “soap” usually refers to what is technically called a toilet soap, used for household and personal cleaning. High-quality toilet soap is usually made from vegetable oils such as olive oil, coconut oil, palm kernel oil and others, but cheaper variations may also contain tallow (a rendered form of animal fat).

Many manufacturers infuse their soaps with additional ingredients (essential oils, herbal extracts, herbs and spices, clay, etc.) for a more pronounced cosmetic effect. For example, toilet soaps for oily and combination skin contain antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory ingredients that help to solve the most common oily skin problems.

Oily and combination skin is prone to enlarged and clogged pores due to increased sebum secretion. Large pores easily get clogged with oils, dirt and make-up, which leads to blackheads, breakouts, inflammation and acne scars. That’s why soaps for this skin type contain antiseptic and antibacterial ingredients that help to unclog pores and prevent inflammation.

In addition, such soaps are free of ingredients that may dry the skin out. People with oily skin often use harsh skincare products to reduce sebum secretion and prevent their skin from looking oily and shiny, but this usually has the opposite effect. Dehydrated skin stripped of its natural oils begins to produce even more sebum than usual to compensate for it, so oily appearance quickly returns and becomes even worse. That’s why quality soap for oily skin should cleanse it without stripping the skin of moisture and natural oils.

Ukrainian beauty brand Flora Secret presents a line of natural soaps for all skin types, including oily and combination skin. The brand originally produced essential and carrier oils, but in 2012 it expanded its product line to include handmade soaps. Flora secret soaps are based on high-quality vegetable oils (palm oil, coconut oil, sunflower seed oil, olive oil) and are free of animal fat or synthetic surfactants such as SLS/SLES.

The brand’s soaps with anti-inflammatory effect are infused with natural ingredients with antiseptic and antibacterial properties such as eucalyptus oil, white clay (kaolin) and birch tar. These ingredients effectively unclog pores, prevent inflammation and soothe the skin, all while helping to keep the skin soft and hydrated. Let us take a closer look at two Flora Secret soaps with an anti-inflammatory effect, Handmade Antibacterial Soap and Handmade Tar Soap.

Handmade Tar Soap is based on a blend of palm oil, coconut oil, sunflower seed oil and olive oil, and enriched with avocado oil, grapeseed oil and castor oil. Its key ingredient is birch tar, also known as birch pitch. Birch tar is a substance derived from the dry distillation of the bark of the birch tree. It is mainly composed of phenols. Birch tar is a strong natural antiseptic that reduces inflammation and helps to normalise sebum secretion. Handmade Tar Soap by Flora Secret contains just enough tar to make the skin healthy and prevent oily shine but not enough to make it feel dry or tight. It helps to get rid of blackheads, prevents acne and tightens pores. The product is suitable for all skin types.

Antibacterial Tar Soap by Flora Secret is based on a similar carrier oil blend (palm oil, coconut oil, sunflower seed oil, almond oil, avocado oil, grapeseed oil and castor oil) and enriched with kaolin and tea tree essential oil. Kaolin (white clay) helps to unclog pores and absorbs excess sebum, making the skin soft and smooth. Tea tree oil is an essential oil with a strong antiseptic effect. It is widely used to treat acne, skin infections, dandruff, and some other skin conditions. Together, white clay and tea tree oil effectively eliminate oily skin problems and make the skin look and feel healthy and glowing.
