Pure pleasure for
Body Mind and Soul!

Here we have listed some important ingredients of our cosmetic products for you. The list gives you a little insight into the origins of plants and minerals and the properties that are typically attributed to the substances. However, the effect of the individual ingredient in a specific product can differ from the effects described here.


Activated carbon

Activated carbon, also known as activated carbon or medicinal coal, has been used in Asia for centuries as a home remedy and especially for skin cleansing.
Our activated carbon comes from coconut shells. This is fine-grained carbon, which has a porous structure and therefore a very large surface area.
The main strength of activated carbon is adsorption. The black powder is almost as absorbent as a sponge. It binds and removes other substances such as chemicals or dirt.
This is exactly what we make use of in our hand-boiled DEEP CLEANSE natural soap: Because the black miracle cure cleans and pulls everything out of the skin that clogs the pores.

Babassuöl - Orbignya Oleifera Seed Oil

Babassu is a South American palm species that is native to the Amazon basin. The Babassu palm tree grows up to 30 m high and bears elongated, nut-like stone fruits that resemble coconuts.
Due to its high content of lauric acid, babassu oil has been shown to inhibit inflammatory processes. It counteracts blemishes and protects dry skin from moisture loss. Babassu oil contains a high proportion of vitamin E tocotrienols, which, as effective antioxidants, slow down natural cell aging.
Babassu oil is therefore not only helpful for brittle, dry skin, but also for oily and combination skin with inflammatory impurities, as well as for neurodermitic and itchy skin.

Cananga - essential oil

Canaga oil is made from a tree that can reach a height of 25 meters. The scent is seductive and is very similar to that of Ylang Ylang.
The oil has a special effect on the soul because it becomes very soothing. In the Philippines, women still use the flowers of the Canaga tree as a perfume because they leave a wonderful fragrance. The oil is even said to promote the production of the body's own serotonins.

Safflower oil

Safflower oil is obtained from safflower and is also known as safflower oil.
The high proportion of linoleic acid (which is an essential component of the epidermis, the top layer of skin) is remarkable. This not only provides the skin with moisture, it also nourishes dry skin areas and strengthens the skin barrier. Linoleic acid is known to reduce skin irritation and contact dermatitis, improve acne and blackheads.
With dry, flaky skin, safflower oil has a moisturizing and moisture-regulating effect. It has a cleansing effect on impure, inflamed skin, has a slightly antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effect and has a mattifying effect on oily skin.

Green clay

The all-rounder consists of finely ground rock that is rich in important trace elements and minerals and contains a particularly large amount of silica. These power ingredients help with skin problems, bind acids and toxins.
The green clay gets its color from the copper compounds in the earth. In contrast to brown earth, green earth is dried under blazing sun. It reduces excess fat on the skin, absorbs bacteria and acid substances, strengthens the natural protective coat and promotes the regeneration process of the skin.

Hanföl / Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Seed Oil

The hemp plant is one of our oldest cultivated plants. It originally comes from Central Asia, but is now also native to Europe.
Hemp oil is a real miracle of active ingredients! Among other things, it supports the skin with: omega-3 and -6 fatty acids, gamma-linolenic acid, linoleic acid, palmitic acid, vitamins B1, B2 and E and many minerals such as phosphorus, potassium, calcium, manganese, sodium, iron, magnesium , Zinc and copper.
It promotes the skin's natural barrier function and binds moisture. It can also improve serious problems such as psoriasis, neurodermatitis or itchy and reddened skin irritations. This is also due to the anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antimicrobial effects of, for example, stearic acid. This calms sensitive, irritated skin, allows pimples and small wounds to heal faster, prevents scars and prevents illnesses. Hemp oil also has strong skin-regenerating, antioxidative and cell-renewing properties, making it ideal for mature or dry skin.

Coconut oil

Thanks to its diverse effects, coconut oil has been the best skin care product in the home of coconut palms for thousands of years.
Coconut oil is rich in minerals, antioxidants and vitamins and contains an extremely high proportion of the medium-chain, saturated lauric acid.
Lauric acid has an antibacterial effect and thus offers the skin protection against germs, bacteria and fungi. Natural coconut oil moisturizes and protects the skin.
Thanks to its antibacterial effect, coconut oil also helps with pimples and irritated skin.
In addition, coconut oil moisturizes, soothes inflammation and makes the skin nice and soft.

We only use organically grown coconut oil, which we could also use for cooking. Since our soaps contain an excess of the valuable coconut oil and are produced using the gentle cold saponification process, a large part of the wonderful active ingredients remain and care for your daily skin cleansing

Castor oil

Castor oil is obtained from the seeds of the Ricinus communis. The miracle tree has already been mentioned for its healing power in the 'Papyrus Ebers' (one of the oldest known medical writings from 1552 BC). Back then, castor oil was used as a therapy for a wide variety of complaints and for the care of hair and skin.
The highest quality oil comes from cold pressing, which we use for our solid soaps in organic quality.
Dry and rough skin is moisturized and revitalized by the care with castor oil. Combination skin is balanced and oily skin is supported in the reduction of sebum production. Blackheads, acne and other blemishes in particular can be treated with castor oil in a targeted and targeted manner, since the oil has an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effect.
Aging skin that has the first pigment or age spots and has small lines of expression around the eyes, nose and mouth can be revitalized with castor oil.

Sea buckthorn

Sea buckthorn originally comes from the Himalayas, but has spread to Europe after the last ice age 17,000 years ago. Today the “Lemon of the North” is cultivated particularly frequently on the coastal areas of the North and Baltic Seas.
Sea buckthorn fruit oil contains vitamin E, vitamin C and, a rarity for plants, vitamin B12, which is otherwise found almost exclusively in animal products. Other ingredients are minerals, trace elements and secondary plant substances.
The valuable ingredients of the pulp oil protect the skin cells from harmful environmental influences. In particular, the fatty acid linole promotes the natural protective function of the skin, while the vitamin E protects the skin against free radicals. The oil works particularly well with oily and impure combination skin. In addition, dry skin becomes soft, supple and tightened.

Shea butter is also called shea butter or Beurre de Karité. The origin is West and Central Africa. The shea tree only occurs in this strip of vegetation.
In Africa shea butter is called shea butter or the "gold of women". The collection and processing of butter is traditionally in the hands of women and is the basis of life for millions of women and families in one of the poorest countries in the world.
Our shea butter comes from two projects in Burkina-Faso, where around three thousand women around the capital Ouagadougou collect and process shea nuts. We support these projects by paying fair prices and giving security and trust through our approvals.

Shea butter moisturizes and the fat accompanying substances protect the skin. Due to its calming effect, shea butter is mainly used for dry, cracked and stressed skin.
