This soap contains many ingredients that are considered helpful in taming and preventing breakouts of the skin. One of the traditional Ayurvedic uses of neem oil includes the treatment of acne. A 1990 study published in the Medical Journal of Australia reported that a solution of 5% tea tree oil treated acne just as well as 5% benzoyl peroxide. According to naturopathic and homeopathic doctor Asa Hershoff, DC, of Los Angeles and San Francisco, though tea tree oil is slower to show benefits than benzoyl peroxide, it results in less itching, scaling, and irritation. Applying activated charcoal to your skin, it's claimed, will remove debris from skin's surface and can even extract toxins from beneath the skin, according to Health 911. The antibacterial properties of charcoal can also help alleviate infections, or keep them from happening. Both lavender and peppermint essential oils inhibit bacteria that cause skin infection and both are antiseptic, antifungal and antibacterial. Aloe helps the skin to heal naturally and with minimal scarring. Each bar weighs between 3.5 to 4 oz.

Not for use by pregnant women or women trying to conceive.

* Sodium hydroxide is a necessary ingredient to mix with oil to make natural and gentle soap. All soap is made with sodium hydroxide. However, once the soap begins to harden, sodium hydroxide levels reduce until they are no longer present. The soap you purchase from Vita Pulita will no longer contain sodium hydroxide.
