Bars of soap are often then forgotten personal care items, but they really need some more use and recognition! Bar soap is great because it lasts for a long time, is easy and less messy to travel with, and often contains way fewer ingredients and chemicals than you find in liquid hand and body soaps.
Zion Health makes Ancient Soap Clay soap bars that smell amazing, have pure and healthy ingredients, and contain loads of essential oils, minerals, and other nourishing ingredients that your skin is going to love.
Today, we are going to review their two popular soap options, the Thieves bar soap and the Rose and Bergamot bar soap.
We will take a look at the ingredients, the benefits of the soaps, how to use them, and our overall thoughts on these soaps!
In both of these soaps, you are only going to find healthy, pure, and natural ingredients you know and can recognize.
- Ionic minerals
- Coconut oil
- Shea butter
- Coconut butter
- Essential oils
Their bars of soap is 100% vegan, contain no sulfates, parabens, or gluten. They are gentle on your skin but provide lots of moisture, hydration, and healing benefits.
Ionic minerals contain over 57 trace minerals that help your skin stimulate new cell growth. Coconut oil can reduce acne breakouts, remove dead skin cells, and remove dirt and oils from the skin. Shea butter and coconut butter are super moisturizing for the skin, contain loads of antioxidants, and are rich in fatty acids. The addition of oatmeal to the soap is moisturizing, but it also acts as a natural and gentle exfoliator.
Essential oils are great in soaps because they give the soap a wonderfully natural and fresh fragrance, but oils contain many benefits for the skin as well. For example, in the thieves soap, you will find clove which helps promote relaxation, deodorize, and freshen. Eucalyptus is super helpful for soothing aches and pains in the body, softening any rough or dry skin, and help improve blood circulation.
How to Use
Using this natural soap is super easy and you will use it just like any other bar of soap. You can use it for washing your hands and keep it next to the skin in the kitchen or in the bathroom. You can also use the soap in the shower as a body wash to help clean, soothe, and hydrate your skin while showering.
Overall, we really love both of these soaps. The ingredients are great, there are no harsh chemicals, and you will never find anything toxic or harmful. The soap is great to use for the whole family, although the essential oils are quite strong, so you may want to refrain from using it on babies and younger children.
The soap lathers into a nice rich bubble, so it really feels like it is cleaning your hands and body well. The scents are pure and fresh, and once you are finished your skin does not feel dry and tight, but hydrated and moisturized.
