Thanks to all our regular customers who were out on Sunday in Busselton buying environmentally thoughtful and beautiful gifts of Scrumpy Soap. Our soaps are not costing the earth, are an affordable luxury to be shared with friends and loved ones....(yes that includes our fury friends) and looked just great in our specially designed 100% recycled cardboard gift box tied with some recycled ribbon. Photos to follow.
Most popular for sensitive skin on the day was our Hemp soap.
Hemp seed oil is a rich source of the polyunsaturated essential fatty acids, linoleic acid and gamma-linolenic acid. These fatty acids are required to maintain the moisture content in the body. Therefore, hemp oil acts as a good moisturizing agent for the skin. Hemp oil not only prevents the skin from drying, but it also helps relieve the symptoms of acne, minor abrasions, psoriasis, and eczema. It is a rich source of Vitamin D and the production of hemp oil has a low impact on the environment.
Topical application of hemp oil can provide relief from itching and improve the appearance of the dry, scaling skin.
The hemp plant is a completely renewable resource and every single part of the plant can be made into an end-consumer product. •Hemp requires no pesticides and can be rotated with traditional crops as its roots penetrate deep into the ground. •The yield per acre of hemp is among the highest of all crops. •Since hemp farming does not require the use of pesticides and herbicides consumers of hemp seeds and oil do not need to be concerned about pesticide residues.
I started making soap as I have sensitive skin and so did many people around me. I wanted to make a product that was natural, gentle, affordable, sustainable and made locally. I value health, fairness, truth and our environment.
