Our oils

There is a multitude of oils/fats that can be used to make soap. This can be handy when making soap for yourself as you can make a bespoke recipe based on your needs and allergies. Here at the soap deli we have chosen to use 5 oils because of the properties and the benefits that they have on your skin.

Virgin Coconut Oil is a great skin conditioner and is used in soap to make a rich lather and provide some moisturising qualities.

Pure Olive Oil is an excellent oil to use in soap as it is a moisturiser that forms a breathable layer on the skin therefore preventing a loss of internal moisture. Olive oil makes a very hard, almost white bar of soap and is suitable for babies and even the most sensitive of skin.

Sunflower Oil is rich in vitamin E and facilitates the skins regeneration. 

Unrefined Shea Butter is great to soften, revitalise and moisturise dry skin due to it being naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F.

Cold Pressed Castor Oil acts as a humectant by attracting and retaining moisture to the skin.

Essential oils have anti-inflammatory,anti-bacterial and soothing properties all of which are beneficial for the skin. Essential oils should not be used on children under the age of 6. If you have any medical concerns about using our products,some of which contain essential oils should not be used when pregnant . Certain medical conditions or medications may have adverse reactions with essential oil so please consult your medical practitioner before use.
