New Green Facial Bar

If you've been to my Etsy shop lately, you might have noticed quite a few new products.  Right now though, I'm only going to talk about the new Green Facial Bar.  I absolutely love this one.

So, you're probably wondering "why is it called green if it's brown?".  That can be explained by the ingredients.  This bar was made with Green Tea and French Green Clay.  Hence, the "green".  Since I used actual, brewed green tea instead of green tea powder, this turned the soap a brown color. 

I thought that adding the French green clay would make it a little greener, but that's ok.  The benefits are all I'm interested in on this one.  As with most clays, French green clay is great for pulling toxins from the skin, as well as gently exfoliating. 

Green tea is full of antioxidants which are great for your skin.  There are other supposed benefits as well, but with soap being a wash-off product, and my products not being evaluated by the FDA for drug claims, I'll let you do your own research on that.

Tea tree and peppermint essential oils have also been added.  Tea tree for its benefits, and peppermint (being completely honest here) mostly just because I'm not a huge fan of the tea tree scent, though it does have its own benefits as well.

As you can see, this bar was designed purely for purpose.  No fancy colors or "fun" fragrances but it's chock full of healthy ingredients.  If you decide to try it out, be sure to let me know what you think!

Lovely! Bet this smells nice. Tea tree oil has been good to me since I was a teenager. Am going to be on the lookout for it in a soap bar!
