The Soap Kitchen Deliver Hand Care for Hard Working Hands
Need a clever way to keep your hands pristine during the Summer gardening season? Never fear The Soap Kitchen has just what you need for all your green-fingered woes.
With the English weather getting better there’s no excuse for us not to spend a little time in the garden.
In between (almost inevitable) moments of English Summer rain there’s never been a better time to tend to our patch, while soaking up a few glorious rays of sun. But while our thoughts are turning to the great outdoors it’s not all sunshine. Pulling weeds and tending a garden (however compact) is hard work; and it’s especially hard on our hands. Thankfully The Soap Kitchen has the answer.
Adding to the collection of toiletries made by their expert team, The Soap Kitchen experts have created two indispensable new hand care products that aim to save the precious digits of hard working gardeners; they’re even good for DIY enthusiasts!
Gardener’s Orange & Cedar Soap Scrub Bar
First up is the Gardener’s Orange & Cedar Soap Scrub Bar. A cold process soap handmade using pure vegetable oils of olive (pomace) oil, coconut oil and responsibly sourced palm oil (RSPO – Roundtable of Sustainable Palm Oil), which produce a mild and moisturising block of soap.
The colour-free soap contains ground almond shell to help scrub the hands clean and is fragranced using essential oils of cedar wood and orange for their deodorising and cleansing properties.
Each of the soap blocks is then hand cut into bars and cured for approximately six weeks, before being wrapped in Fair Trade handmade paper and tied with ribbon.
Gardener’s Hand Cream
Complimenting the Soap Scrub Bar is The Soap Kitchen’s Gardener’s Hand Cream. Made with a base of sunflower oil and cold pressed borage seed oil (starflower oil), which is extremely rich in gamma-linolenic acid (an essential fatty acid also known as Vitamin F).
This healing and soothing moisturising cream is fragranced with extract of lavender and essential oils of cedar wood and orange; it also contains sweet almond oil, aloe vera, vitamin E and extracts of chamomile, ginseng and comfrey leaf.
The hand cream is suitable for use on the hands, face and body and is MIT (methylisothiazolinone) and paraben-free.
Together the Soap Scrub and Hand Cream make the perfect gift for gardener’s everywhere; treating sore, tired hands after a long day in the garden.
