Why Rooibos for a Shaving Bar?
Rooibos ‘Tea’ (Aspalathus Linearis Leaf) originating in South Africa, contains high levels of naturally occurring eugenol, a calming antiseptic. This works effectively to leave face and body feeling soothed, cool and cared-for after a razor shave,
Don’t let the few specks of rooibos in this soap confuse you for an exfoliating bar. Rooibos leaves are tiny, soft, gentle and help maintain the warm golden tones of the soap, You won’t even notice these as they fall away into the opulent lather. Meanwhile, other exfoliating scrub bars feature in Dhana’s collection.
How Against the Grain Combats Acne:
In addition to the healing effects of eugenol, found in rooibos tea, Against the Grain Shaving & Acne Bar is packed with ricinoleic acid. This active triglyceride compound makes up 95% of the composition of organic castor oil. Absorbing deep into the layers of your skin, it stops the production of excess sebum (skin oils) that block pores and create acne.
