Olive oil and laurel oil, clay and sea salt exfoliating soap paste.
History: Olive oil Black Soap has been used to cleanse and exfoliate in hammam (steam room) for centuries. Nowadays, Black soap is used in some of the most exclusive spas in Europe and America. A natural olive oil based emollient, black soap is heated in cauldrons and enriched with laurel oil (to disinfect), rassoul (a red clay that draws impurities out of the skin), and sea salt (to tone and exfoliate). This smooth, generous, ecological paste is 100% plant-based.
Use: Regular exfoliation reveals the natural light of a clean, soft and healthy skin. As a body scrub, apply the paste onto a wet mitt or loofah. Massage it in all over the body. Let it penetrate for 1 minute. Step under the shower and scrub the creamy lather away. Rinse well with warm water. For a soft and clear skin that glows.
