CARPATHIAN BATH HANDMADE SOAP
Handmade natural soap, formulated exclusively with plant-derived ingredients.
The Ukrainian Carpathians, also known as Wooded Carpathians, are famous for their breathtaking landscapes, fresh air, abundance of medicinal herbs, and unique traditions of the local population named Hutsuls. In the mountains, the cold season is longer than in the lowlands, and so Hutsuls have a tradition of bathing in a steam bath (banya) to keep themselves both clean and warm. Such bath also help to boost the immune system and prevent the common cold thanks to juniper and other herbs.
YAKA has created an all-natural soap bar infused with juniper to re-create the effect of the traditional Hutsul bath. This medicinal plant is valued for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effect. It makes the skin softer and smoother, prevents irritation and inflammation, and produces a rejuvenating and refreshing effect. Juniper also has aromatherapeutic properties; it boosts the mood and relieves stress and anxiety.
Soap is based on a blend of saponified vegetable oils (olive oil, palm oil, rapeseed oil, castor oil, shea butter, soybean oil) that cleanse the skin very gently and make it soft and velvety smooth.
Another natural ingredient contained in the product is finely ground oatmeal that acts as a natural exfoliating agent. It gently removes dead cells from the surface of the skin, making it super clean and smooth. Besides, oatmeal stimulates microcirculation in the epidermis and helps to prevent cellulite.
The soap has a nice natural scent thanks to containing a blend of essential oils (juniper oil, silver fir oil, eucalyptus oil). These oils help to prevent respiratory problems and eliminate pathogenic bacteria on your skin.
How to use: apply to wet skin, lather, rinse.
