I have totally fallen in love with Victorian Garden Shea Butter Baby Fragrance Free Soap.
Since Adam's terrible excema and frequent break out of hives, we have been using very expensive body wash for him. I took him to the nutritionist ( will blog about that), and she recommended Shea butter baby soap. I decided to try it on myself before using it on him. It is FANTASTIC. My skin felt so soft, i suppose from the Shea butter, that I even used it on my face. My face was not dry at all and also felt wonderful. I miss the nice smelly fragrance soaps, but the whole idea is to remove anything that might irritate his skin.
Here is some info on Shea Butter Baby Soap.
Based on old Victorian recipes made during the 1800's, these hand crafted soaps contain natural ingredients with the very best sourced essential oils, plant extracts and cold pressed vegetable oils. During the Victorian era, and during the Tudor era and indeed, in previous times, soap making methods included using the 'cold method' which ensured that active organics do not deteriorate as they do when using the 'hot method' used by most commercial soaperies.
Our soaps are suitable for sensitive skins and are classed as VEGAN. The soap process removes excess alkali from the bars thus creating a very mild soap. Alkali, used to turn oils into soap, and water are the primary non organic ingredients. Most components come from plant based renewable resources which are farmed and processed without chemicals in a sustainable and Fair Trade manner. When you mix oils, alkali and water, they chemically react and turn into soap and glycerin. The glycerin is then stirred back in to add to the moisturizing qualities of soap. Our Bathroom and Soap products all contain natural ingredients.
