Your anti-aging arsenal isn’t complete without my new Carrot Soap! Carrot soap has been around for a few years and is great for all skin types, but is particularly helpful for pampering mature skin, rejuvenating skin cells and encouraging new growth. My Carrot Soap is chock-full of goodness for your skin…Carrot Seed Essential Oil, Carrot Extract, Pro Vitamin B5, Vitamin E, dehydrated and ground carrots, goat’s milk, orange essential oil, tussah silk, and turmeric and paprika for an additional natural color boost and exfoliation.
Carrot Seed Essential Oil is not found in all carrot soaps, no doubt because of the cost. I think Carrot Soap isn’t complete without it. It is extracted from the seeds, and should not be confused with the cheaper carrot oil, when carrot material is infused into a base oil. This wonderful essential oil brings several benefits to the skin, including its magical ability to rejuvenate dry, mature, and wrinkled skin. It works by stimulating red blood cells, which improves appearances by adding elasticity and tone to skin. It has a cult-following as an anti-aging oil for preventing wrinkles. It is also believed to facilitate scar reduction. Carrot Seed Essential Oil is high in antioxidants, which can help protect your skin from UV rays, pollution and stress. Because of its ability to stimulate cell growth and repair damaged skin, it also has a reputation for helping to heal eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.
Carrot Extract is high in vitamins A and E and beta carotene. It soothes chapped and inflamed skin, and is thought to bring balance to the skin’s moisture. Carrot Extract is helpful for dry winter skin and mature skin.
Pro Vitamin B5 is helpful for dry, damaged, chapped, inflamed or irritated skin, as well as mature and aging skin. It offers great moisturizing and softening properties and promotes regeneration of skin cells.
Vitamin E eases dryness and bolsters skin’s UV defense. The best anti-aging products contain at least 1% vitamin E.
Dehydrated and Ground Carrots, sourced from a chemical free garden, have been infused into this soap not only for the added vitamins, but also for some light exfoliation and color enhancement.
Goat’s Milk also plays a big part in this wonderful soap. Milk soaps provide extra moisturizing qualities and a creaminess that can’t be matched in soap formulated with just water. Goat’s milk has been used since ancient times as a natural cleanser. It is one of nature’s finest moisturizers, is softening and soothing to the skin, and adds creaminess to handcrafted soap. Goat’s milk also contains Vitamin A, several B Vitamins including riboflavin, niacin, B6, B12 and lactic acid. Lactic acid is one of the most commonly used alpha hydroxy acids used in skin care. These alpha hydroxy acids, naturally occurring in goat’s milk, penetrate the skin and are believed to have rejuvenating effects on skin cells, neutralizing free radicals, and slowing the aging process while improving the overall look and feel of the skin.
Orange Essential Oil has also been added to this soap. Carrot Seed Essential Oil has an earthy aroma that many might not appreciate. Orange Essential Oil has been shown to promote the production of collagen, as well as increase blood flow to the skin. It is helpful in soothing dry, irritated skin, as well as acne-prone skin. It also has a delightful aroma that makes the Carrot Seed Essential Oil more palatable!
Tussah Silk: These soaps have been formulated with Tussah Silk for extra luxury. The addition of silk to soap produces a shinier appearance, slightly increased lather, and a wonderful silky feel to it.
Turmeric and paprika have been incorporated into this soap for an additional natural color boost and some mild exfoliation.
