Sweet li’l teddy came to me in a dream. He asked me if he could appear on a soap for children to make their bath time free of fear and full of fun. “Make it the gentlest soap that’s ever been, out of the most wonderful ingredients”, he requested. And so I did…
There are no essential oils in this all-natural bar, yet it smells yummy! Warm, calming, delicately sweet notes with a chocolatey/nutty hint (thank you, cocoa butter, sweet almond and macadamia nut oils) soothe, relax and nourish your senses. Soft, small-sized bubbles, packed densely into a velvety lather are perfect for cleansing softly while deeply conditioning the skin.
The soap owes some of its skin-soothing properties to the calendula infusion, that was prepared in advance to reap the wonderful benefits of this herbal plant, also known as Marigold. I used dried petals (that are actually edible) of this beautiful bright-coloured flower, so that your skin could eat up all the goodness. Naturally anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial, calendula has been used for centuries to help heal dry skin, soothe contact dermatitis, cure fungal skin infections, prevent acne and calm skin irritations (rashes, sunburns, insect bites, minor cuts).
Some of the best oils and butters, renowned for their skin-soothing properties, have been generously incorporated into Sweet Li’l Teddy soap: ultra-creamy, moisturising shea butter; highly-conditioning cocoa butter; skin-softening almond oil; skin-healing apricot kernel oil; moisture-retaining castor oil; and luxurious highly-emollient macadamia nut oil. The ratios of the extra virgin coconut and olive oil are just right to give this bar a rich, yet mild lather that conditions beautifully while washing away any impurities from the skin.
Each bar is just the size, shape and feel you’d want it to be – easy to hold in your or your child’s hand – and cannot but make one smile. The Teddy presents himself in a different pose, depending on the bar: he can be sitting quietly, jumping joyfully, presenting himself confidently or standing sideways gracefully. Sweet li’l teddy is on the soap to remind you that you’re loved and cared for. You may find that by using this soap, you’ll let this cute brown bear into your heart and maybe even into your sweet dreams, where you’ll both be walking in a field of hearts and having a very engaging and meaningful conversation!
