Happy Father's Day: Handmade Soaps for Men
It’s Father’s Day! So Happy Father’s Day to our amazing dads out there. Fathers play such an important role in all our lives. Whether it be a biological dad, stepdad, someone you look up to as a father, they really do matter. So thank you for all you’ve done and all you will continue to do for your families.
I’ve received a lot of questions as to which soaps are for men. So let me include a list of soaps that I think are fitting for the men in our lives:
The first soap I’d like to recommend is our Black Soap. It is our take on the traditional African Shea Soap. Oakmoss and Aloe top notes with light floral undertones. Oakmoss is one of the best green fragrances for men. It’s been around for centuries and has been used as an ingredient in many popular perfume brands such as Ralph Lauren, Adidas, Giorgio Armani and many others. Another reason why I’d recommend this soap is the fact that it contains activated charcoal.
Activated charcoal draws bacteria, poisons, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of your skin, helping you to achieve a flawless complexion and fight acne.It is in no way harmful, and actually possesses many beneficial qualities.
The next soap I’d like to recommend is our Dead Sea Mud Scrub. It’s a musky earthy fragrance with amber and green basenotes. Contains activated charcoal, sea salt, and various clays as exfoliants. Dead Sea Salt has been proven to relieve skin ailments such as acne, eczema and psoriasis. Minerals such as magnesium, sodium and potassium enhance your skins ability to retain moisture, making it healthy and silky smooth. The soap includes two types of clay. Rhassoul clay is rich in magnesium, silica, potassium, and calcium, which all help to nourish your skin. Moroccan red clay is used today to nourish the skin, even out blotchy skin tone, and reduce acne – specifically stubborn blackheads.
Dragon’s Blood is one I’d recommend for those who love the musky-sweet scent of patchouli . This soap contains top notes of amber, vanilla, and patchouli. Also has hints of orange and other fruity base notes. Adam Gottschalk writes how the amber note is obtained in perfumes, which is rather a combination of benzoin, labdanum, and vanilla which gives the feel of warm, a little sweet and woody amber and mingled with other notes it emerges with its various characters
Do you remember what Irish Spring smells like? Our mountain air soap smells like fresh clean linen with hints of aloe vera. A smell that many women find appealing. This scent is perfect for the summer months This soap also contains activated charcoal.
Last but not least Peppermint. This soap is made with Pure sweet peppermint fragrance oil. It is very strong and contains peppermint leaves as an exfoliant. This soap is very refreshing. I think it’s perfect when used for an early morning shower before work to wake you up and after a long day to refresh and give you a boost. The peppermint leaves works as great exfoliants to rid rid of dead skin cells and reveal smoother skin
These 5 amazing soaps are great choices for our men. I think it comes down to what you want to smell like. Once again Happy Father’s Day! May you have a happy, healthy and peaceful Father’s Day with your family. And may you have many more happy, healthy and peaceful ones as well.
