During the cold winter months it's often more difficult to keep our skin moisturized as temperatures and relative humidity drop and dry indoor heat rises. During these times it is more important than ever to stay hydrated, provide gentle cleansing and use products that help boost and retain moisture. Our Voyageur Cocoa Butter & Clay soap formula is a great addition to your winter skin care routine and a fabulous cleansing bar all year long.
A conditioning formula with 5% super fatting and rich in Cocoa Butter, Olive Oil and High Oleic Sunflower Oil, with just the right amount of Coconut and Palm oils to provide both creamy and bubbly lather without over cleansing. And for an even extra boost of skin care love, we've incorporated Rhassoul Clay, rich in Silica, Magnesium, Calcium and Potassium, known to help rejuvenate, detoxify and tone the skin, thereby reducing skin dryness and flakiness while also improving skin clarity and elasticity. While you can choose to scent this amazing bar with your favourite Essential Oil or Fragrance Oil, we used our top rated Body Balance Essential Oil Blend, a skin loving combination of Lavender, Patchouli, Ylang Ylang III, Palmarosa and Vetiver with a warm, rich, earthy, calming aroma.

TIPS FOR SUCCESS
- Blend lye solution into oil mixture at equal temperatures. Alternate mixing with manual whisk and stick blender to fully incorporate ingredients. Do not over mix.
- Bring mixture to a light emulsion before adding essential oil, colour or other additives.
- Mix Rhassoul Clay together with a small amount of water to create a slurry before adding to soap mixture. This will help with even colouring and avoid clumping.
