At Tetyana naturals we use large variety of natural additives. Each has a unique way of providing a specific benefit to each soap bar. Like nutrients, color, scent or providing exfoliation to the skin.
Some of additives are:
Fresh Grinded Coffee – It is a great additive especially for the kitchen, gardening or auto mechanic soap. Our Turkish Mocha contains a lot of coffee. It exfoliates and removes odors. Like when you are cooking, your hands smell like food. That would be a great time to use this soap. It also believed that coffee helps tone the skin, which would make this soap a great tool against cellulite.
Calendula Flowers – We use it as decoration, exfoliation and also we infuse them in oils. If you check our Massage Oils, those contain a lot of Infused Calendula Oil. This oil is so rich. It provides a natural slippery effect, so it is a fantastic for massages. It also is a great natural moisturizer, helps with stretch marks and can be used for any sensitive skin.
Lavender Flowers – We use them as well as decoration. It is not good to mix them inside of the soap because they would turn black. But they are great as therapeutic additives. Provide soft scent, which is relaxing and calming for your mind.
