When it comes to skincare we should care about not compromising. What is applied outside our bodies does matter when it comes to our overall health and well-being in the longer run.
Regular soaps or perfumes that are made up of petroleum-based lathering agents, synthetic fragrances, harsh dyes, and dangerous preservatives leads to skin irritation and other diseases. Moreover, detergent in soaps breaks the surface tension of the water which we may not notice but is crucial. This causes lower surface tension which leads to the low oxygen level in the ocean which in turn harms fish and other aquatic wildlife.
So would you buy something so essential and do the risk of harming your skin or the environment eventually? Or would you be thoughtful and nurture your skin with something powerful yet gentle like Mother Nature?

Apricot Kernel: Also a very light oil that lubricates the skin and is easily absorbed, Apricot Kernel is packed with essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants which makes it an excellent moisturiser for dry, aging and damaged skin type.
