In ancient Egypt, women in the upper class used beer for cosmetic reasons to freshen, soften and soothe the skin. Apparently, the Eqyptians were on to something! Brewer's yeast, found in beer, is fast becoming an active ingredient in natual beauty care as a remedy for skin impurities. Applying beer topically has been found to clear up a complexion and treat dryness. Rich in panthothenic acid and Vitamin B complex, beer is also thought to make skin smooth and supple. The beer in this bar was also home brewed, with hops grown organically in my garden. Each bar weighs between 4 and 4.5 ounces.

 

* Sodium hydroxide is a necessary ingredient to mix with oil to make natural and gentle soap. All soap is made with sodium hydroxide. However, once the soap begins to harden, sodium hydroxide levels reduce until they are no longer present. The soap you purchase from Vita Pulita will no longer contain sodium hydroxide.
