African Afternoon Soap
African afternoons are intense. The sun gets white hot, the colours intensify, the air doesn't move and even the sounds seem muted as if too lazy to travel through the intense heat. Momentarily subdued insects, birds and animals gather in the dappled shade of big trees in wait for the first cool breeze of evening. Humans take refuge from the sun on shady stoeps and under thatched roofs and dream of cool showers.. Made with red rooibos (Aspalathus linearis) infusion and powder, African wild flower honey and silk from the wild African mopane silk worm (Gonometa rufobrunnea).   100g   Made with olive oil, palm oil, rooibos tea, coconut oil, sodium hydroxide, avocado oil, castor oil, honey, fragrance, hydrolyzed mopane silk, rooibos powder.

Traditional Pine Tar Soap by Auntie Clara's
Traditional Pine Tar Soap
In the Nordic countries pine tar has long traditions as a protector and remedy for all kinds of things. Ropes and wooden structures both on land and on water have been preserved with pine tar since time immemorial and a saying that pre-dates the advent of modern medicine maintains that anything that can't be cured with pine tar, strong alcohol and sauna can't be cured at all. In this Traditional Pine Tar Soap genuine Finnish pine tar is added for beautiful deep brown colour and for that unmistakable scent of pure, well-manufactured pine tar. The soap that we add the pine tar to is a gentle formulation rich in traditional Nordic ingredients; lard and lanolin as the soaping ingredients closest in composition to the oils in our skin, cow's milk to enhance lather and hydrolyzed soft sheep's wool for a silky feel. No added colourant or fragrance. 100g Made with lard, cow's milk, coconut oil, sodium hydroxide, castor oil, lanolin, pine tar, hydrolyzed sheep's wool.
