Body Bar Ingredients
It's important you know what you're feeding your skin. At New Harmony Soap we strive to educate our customers on the ingredients in each product.
Here is what's in our Body Bar:
Phytonutrient Serum #1 – Developed at New Harmony Soap, this proprietary formula delivers a unique blend of plant-derived antioxidants and nutrients optimized for rapid skin absorption. The serum consists of olive oil, full-spectrum Vitamin E, Tea Tree Oil, Lecithin, Calendula, Comfrey, and Neem. Please take a moment to learn more.
Coconut Oil – One of the best natural skin moisturizers in the world, Coconut oil increases skin hydration by reducing evaporation. Considered effective against a variety of infections due to its antifungal, antiviral, and antibacterial properties, Coconut Oil also gets credit for the wonderful lather of New Harmony Soaps.
Certified Organic Palm Oil - Palm oil contains the hard to find toctrienols, which are members of the vitamin E family and have been proven to be highly effective in preventing aging and damage from free radicals. Used topically, toctrienols are able to penetrate deep into the skin's layers to enable healing and protection from the base up.
Certified Organic Sunflower Oil – Rich in Vitamin E, Linoleic acid, lecithin, carotene and waxes, this seed oil possesses properties to prevent cell damage and retard aging. Sustainably farmed in the USA.
Unrefined Shea Butter - A deep moisturizing, nutrient-rich substance extracted from the nut of the African Shea tree. Used to treat dry and cracked skin along with skin conditions like wrinkles, eczema, blemishes and dermatitis. It melts at body temperature and absorbs rapidly into the skin without leaving a greasy feeling. At New Harmony Soap we only use Unrefined Shea because the refinement process extracts nutrients and often adds harmful chemicals.
Distilled Water – No chlorine. No fluoride. No pollution. Just pure H2O.
Sodium Hydroxide – Commonly known as lye, this ingredient is at the heart of natural soap making. The alkali molecules in the Sodium Hydroxide form a bond with the fatty acid molecules in the oils, yielding both salt (cleans skin) and glycerin (moisturizes skin). The process is called saponification. At New Harmony Soap we “super-fat” each bar. This means we use more oil, butter, and serum than necessary to ensure 100% of the lye is bonded (saponified) while leaving an extra portion of the “good stuff” unbonded – and available to nurture your skin.
