Shea Butter is loved because it’s so quickly absorbed by the skin and does not leave a residue. It’s almost like our skin was designed to drink it. Thankfully it is rich in Vitamins A, E, and F, and is a great protector from the sun’s UV rays.
That’s the good news. The bad news is that most Shea Butter in America is either refined or processed, essentially stripping away the nutritional value in an effort to remove the natural scent and color characteristics.
Our Shea Butter Balm uses 100% natural and unrefined beige Shea Butter from Ghana. In New Harmony we enhance the butter with veggie glycerin, full-spectrum Vitamin E and our special certified natural honeysuckle fragrance.
We recommend using Shea Butter Balm anywhere you have dry or wrinkled skin: your knuckles, your knees, your heels, the crow feet around your eyes, those deep crevices on the forehead caused by raising children… you get the idea.
At this price you can afford to put one on your nightstand, one on your desk at work, one in the car, one in your gym bag, etc.
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:
Skin Nutrition Infusion – 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, 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.
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 – Extracted from the nut of the African shea tree. 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.
Relax. Detoxify. Soften.
There’s nothing more restorative for mind and body than bathing in a Dead Sea salt bath. Once relegated to high-end spas and expensive skin clinics, we are bringing effective and affordable Body Soak Therapy to your home.
