WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MINT SOAP?
MINT SOAP PROVIDES THE PERFECT MORNING WAKE-UP CALL
The fresh energising aroma of Mint Soap eradicates feelings of fatigue and invigorates the mind and body, providing a strong uplifting effect. It can eliminate ‘brain fog’, enhance mental clarity and calm feelings of stress and anxiety.
MINT SOAP SOOTHES RASHES AND INFLAMMATORY SKIN CONDITIONS
Peppermint cools and soothes the skin and acts in a similar way to antihistamines to calm allergy rashes such as nettle rash and contact dermatitis. It cleanses the skin, reduces swelling and redness and relieves itching. The menthol is responsible for the cooling sensation and is particularly beneficial for the relief of heat rash, sunburn and chicken pox. A small study showed the effectiveness of peppermint oil on the severity and duration of chronic itching, and it can provide relief for chronic pruritus. It also eases insect bites and is known as a natural remedy for bed bug bites and scabies. Furthermore, it is also effective against the herpes simplex virus that causes cold sores.
MINT SOAP CLEANSES AND PURIFIES THE SKIN
Mint Soap has an astringent affect, effectively cleansing and purifying the skin. It unclogs pores, effectively removing dirt, sebum and other impurities and also helps to minimise large or open pores. With its antibacterial and antiseptic properties it eliminates the acne causing bacteria, whilst the anti-inflammatory action reduces swelling and redness. The natural components of salicylic acid and vitamin A help to regulate sebum production, thus preventing the build-up which can result in acne or a breakout. Peppermint boosts healing and can help to minimise scarring.
MINT SOAP HYDRATES THE SKIN
Mint Soap effectively hydrates the skin, plus can help to lock in the moisture, as well as regulating sebum control to keep the skin adequately hydrated.
MINT SOAP IS ANTI-AGEING
Mint Soap contains antioxidants that can protect against free radical damage and improve blood circulation. It also helps to tone the skin, slowing the formation of fine lines and wrinkles and reducing their appearance.
MINT SOAP BRIGHTENS THE COMPLEXION
Mint Soap has an energising effect on the skin as well as on the mind, and can act as a pick-me-up to reduce dull tired skin and promote a brighter complexion.
MINT SOAP ENCOURAGES WOUND HEALING
The antibacterial, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties of Mint Soap are perfect for skin suffering from cuts and abrasions, skin complaints, minor household burns or sunburn, whilst the cooling property acts as an analgesic to reduce discomfort.
MINT SOAP IS IDEAL FOR SHAVING
Mint Soap naturally cools and tones the skin which, along with its anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antimicrobial and healing properties, makes it an ideal soap for shaving. It can also help to deter ingrown hairs, soothe skin irritation and protect against infection in the case of any nicks or cuts.
MINT SOAP CONDITIONS THE SCALP & HAIR
Mint Soap can cool and soothe the scalp to alleviate itching. It gently cleanses the scalp to remove impurities, dirt and clear blocked hair follicles, plus counteracts dryness, dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis. It stimulates the scalp and increases blood circulation, strengthening the hair roots, diminishing hair loss and improving hair growth and thickness. Mint is also a known deterrent for head lice.
