Let the aromatic blend of spices envelop your senses as you lather up with our Pumpkin Spice & Chaga soap bar with warming ginger and cinnamon spices, and antioxidant-rich pumpkin puree and chaga mushroom powder.

Let's get science-y about some of our featured ingredients;

Tallow is a beef fat that closely resembles our own, making the vitamins and minerals in tallow more readily available and absorbed. Tallow has an approximate comedogenic rating of 2 out of 5 making it a moderately low likelihood of clogging pores. Everyone's skin is different however, so if you have any concerns a patch test is always recommended! Tallow is a saturated fat with a primary fatty acid profile consisting of palmitic, stearic, and oleic acids which help to deeply hydrate the skin, acting as an emollient (emollients aid skin barrier function that seal in moisture). Tallow is also packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits!

Chaga is a mushroom that has a wonderful array of benefits for the skin. Chaga contains antioxidants like polyphenols and melanin and they help neutralize free radicals. By reducing oxidative stress, chaga can promote healthy ageing and a glowing complexion. Like shiitake, chaga mushroom contains compounds like betulinic acid and beta-glucans, which have anti-inflammatory properties. These compounds can help soothe irritated skin, reduce redness, and help alleviate conditions such as acne, eczema, and rosacea.

Oat powder contains compounds like beta-glucans and avenanthramides that have anti-inflammatory properties. When applied topically, oats can help calm and soothe irritated or inflamed skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and sunburn. These properties can also help alleviate itching associated with various skin conditions, including dry skin, insect bites, and allergic reactions. Oats create a protective barrier on the skin, reducing irritation and discomfort.

Turmeric is prized for its potent anti-inflammatory properties, making it effective in soothing and calming various skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Its antioxidant content helps protect the skin from free radical damage, promoting a more youthful and radiant complexion while helping to reduce the appearance of dark spots and pigmentation. Turmeric's antibacterial qualities make it beneficial for treating acne by inhibiting the growth of acne-causing bacteria and reducing inflammation. Additionally, turmeric aids in wound healing and scar reduction, while also regulating oil production to prevent clogged pores and promote balanced skin.
