Cucumber juice has long been used as an astringent face-wash, and iin cold pressed soap - it works as a mild cleansing agent and skin toner.
Avocado has many benefits for the skin, whether you eat it or use it topically. The oil contains pretty much the same benefits as the fruit, such as healthy fats (like omega 3), phytonutrients and vitamins A, D and E. Avocado oil is also rich in minerals (specially potassium), which helps it penetrate the skin evenly, quickly and deeper than other plant oils, making the skin smooth and moisturized.
Using avocado oil for soap making will increase the conditioning properties of your finished product and add creaminess to the soap’s lather.
We use Nettle powder to help give the soap a green swirl. The Cucumber is from a local produce farm.
