Let’s talk soap.
For many, soap falls under the umbrella of scarcely considered personal care products, along with dental floss - although we're fiercely loyal to the latter! But it’s time to reconsider.
Many guys complain about body odour and misguidedly blame it on genes. However this is generally not the reason; offensive body odour is primarily caused by bacteria on skin and clothes. In short, most people with BO issues are not washing themselves properly. While body washes, scrubs and shower oils can mask odour, nothing beats the all-over cleansing experience of a great bar of soap.
Benefits of using an antibacterial soap
The strong antimicrobial properties of a good Tea Tree Oil soap can work wonders. Look no further than Christian Acuña Tea Tree Oil Exfoliating Face and Body Bar. Bathing regularly with this soap will help eradicate bacteria that cause body odour. The natural healing properties of Tea Tree Oil soothe the skin whilst luxurious virgin oils of Mandarin, Geranium, Tea Tree, Spearmint and Menthe produce an invigorating, yet ever-so-slightly zesty scent. This soap oozes happy energy every time you hop in the shower.
This soap leaves dry skin quenched and supple thanks to a high concentration of Shea, Coconut, Macadamia, Olive, Almond organic oils and butters. The 100% natural, vegetable-based ingredients produce a very gentle lather and makes it ideal for daily use.
But best of all, you can use this soap all over your face, head and body.
It’s manufactured and formulated in Australia and contains the finest natural ingredients. Organic oils are carefully infused with Tea Tree Powder, Seaweed Powder, Olive Green Clay, Sandalwood Powder and crushed Olive Seed to help scrub away dirt and grime. Your face and body will feel clean, smooth and refreshed. Hydrating ingredients wash away impurities without stripping the skin’s moisture. The result is a clear, healthy skin, free of excessive oils, ready to properly absorb the nutritious ingredients of a Christian Acuña oil-free moisturiser.
Can soap treat my acne?
Christian Acuña Tea Tree Oil Exfoliating Face and Body Bar contains a variety of exfoliating agents to help remove dead skin cells and debris. It also contains specific ingredients to alleviate acne: Fucoidan extracted from Fucus Vesiculosus Seaweed, Nirgundi Oil and Salicylic Acid. Fucoidan has a range of beneficial properties useful for the treatment of inflammation. Nirgundi Oil is also useful as an anti-inflammatory agent and is a great exfoliator.
Salicylic Acid is one of the gold-standard ingredients for treating acne-prone skin. It exfoliates skin both on the surface and deep within the pores and is also a potent anti-inflammatory agent. This soap bar also regulates sebum production and dermal oil secretions. It is your ally in the fight against bacteria which cause acne. If you are prone to oily skin, enlarged pores or acne this soap is for you.
How are Christian Acuña soap bars made?
Christian Acuña skincare is bringing artisanship back to the ancient craft of soap-making. This is not your average mass-produced supermarket soap. When creating his soap Christian employs a cold-processing technique; the ingredients maintain their integrity. There are no fillers. Each 40-bar batch is hand-crafted by Christian, then left to cure for a minimum of three months. The finished product is a heavy, man-sized soap bar with a dense consistency. With regular use it should last you a month.
This is a beautiful soap. It is marbled in appearance and is gently textured to the touch. It comes handsomely wrapped in two layers of paper. To preserve the natural oils and aromas the inner one is acid-free, whilst the outer layer matches the colour of the soap itself. This product is made with love.
