A thousand-year-old tradition that is still relevant today
Soap as we know it today has very distant origins that stretch back into the mists of time. Sumerians, Egyptians, Gauls, and Celts used a saponification process to create purifying ointments, and for a long time these were the only cosmetics that existed. The cleaning and purifying properties of solid soaps are well proven.
But today, far from falling into disuse, solid soap is making a strong comeback: we like its simplicity, its richness in plant based oils, its light and fresh fragrance and its nomadic side, it's so easy to transport and store. The first step in personal care for toddlers, all the way through to grown men and women, soap is an indispensable way to feel clean and fresh on a daily basis.
Today Natura Brasil is reviving this ancestral tradition of solid soap with fair trade plant based oils derived from Brazilian biodiversity, for a totally tropical banho* experience.
Plant based oils at the heart of soap
The basis of any soap, whatever its origin, is the fat used to make it. At Natura Brasil, we choose 100% plant based oils from Brazil that are obtained in an environmentally friendly way. The plant based oils that make up the base of these soaps are enriched with rarer Amazonian oils with active ingredients, like Castanha oil, or Brazil nut oil, with highly moisturising properties, or Maracujá oil, from the passion fruit, which has soothing properties.
So, in addition to its cleansing benefits, each solid soap is also a fragrant little piece of well-being.
