One of the first things I looked to change when I started cleaning up my household products was soap. Because when you love to cook, dig in the garden, and cuddle animals as much as I do, you end up washing your hands about twenty times a day, which can mean a lot of exposure to harsh surfactants and skin irritants. I tried some good block soaps but while they look fancy by the sink for the first day, with use they lose their shape and start collecting dust and hair and seem just generally unhygienic. But no-one was making an effective, clean, organic liquid hand soap. Until now.
Made from a blend of sunflower seed oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, potassium citrate, glycerin, citric acid, sodium chloride and cold-pressed essential oils, Nathalie Bond's Liquid Soap is vegan-friendly and free from sulfates, parabens, synthetic fragrances and preservatives. There are currently three scent options – Peppermint & Eucalyptus, Rose Geranium & Patchouli, Ylang Ylang & Bergamot – each with its own set of healing properties due to the varying oils.
Despite being oil-based, the soap does not feel greasy and the leaves hands feeling clean, soft and lightly fragranced. The ingredients are so gentle that it can be used on even the most sensitive skin and I dare say it could double as a body wash in the shower.
