INGREDIENTS

Saponified organic oils of (extra virgin olive, extra virgin coconut, extra virgin sustainable palm), organic essential oils: (juniper, birch and orange), wild crafted juniper, arctic cloudberry seed oil, arctic lingonberry extract, and rosemary oil extract

This is our line of premium Scandinavian derived organic bath and body products. They were formulated using mostly sourced Scandinavian ingredients. They were all given product names of Nordic origins. They contain pure therapeutic grade essential oils (most are organic) and natural ingredients like: organic oatmeal, sea kelp, Icelandic moss, juniper, birch, cloudberry seed oil, pine and lingonberry extract. We use extra virgin organic olive oil (EVOOO) as the base oil, along with the extra virgin organic oils of coconut and sustainable palm. We use rosemary oil extract (ROE) as a plant based natural preservative. Many of the products contain botanical ingredients derived from the Nordic regions of Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Iceland. We make all of our soaps using the cold process method of manufacturing. This insures that the soap creates its own natural glycerin and the essential oils effectiveness is retained (by far the best soap making method). All of our soaps are completely safe to also be used on the face. Many people also use it to wash their hair, and many men use our soaps to shave. We are very proud of this line offering as Mike's grandparents emigrated from Scandinavia; his grandfather from Finland and his grandmother from Sweden. These soaps are packaged in a recycled white chipboard box with a rectangular label attached.

The quality ingredients that go into this product include the following:

Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Our base oil is used at a very high percentage of the mix. This beautiful oil is from the olive fruit using cold press extraction and decanting methods. Extremely beneficial for the skin, olive oil contains high levels of vitamins A & E, oleic acid and antioxidants. It also makes a great carrier oil for use with any essential oils. Our premium grade organic extra virgin olive oil penetrates deep into the skin, providing needed moisturizing as well as a shield to protect the skin, keeping it smooth, and due to its high level of antioxidants A & E, it can repair skin damage from sun exposure, cigarette smoke and pollutants.

Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

Used in the base mix of oils, coconut oil is derived from the coconut fruit. This vitamin rich oil is used in body care products for its naturally emollient (softening) and lubricating properties. This gentle oil is naturally antiseptic and antioxidant, making it a great ingredient for the skin. Hydrating and soothing make this oil a perfect addition in skin care.

Organic Extra Virgin Sustainable Palm Oil

The palm oil that we source for our soaps is “Certified Sustainable Palm Oil” (CSPO). This oil is produced on palm plantations that have been independently audited and found to comply with the globally agreed environmental standards devised by the Roundtable Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). Palm oil is derived from the pulp of the fruit of the palm tree. It is red in color due to its high beta-carotene content making it high in antioxidants and extremely good to use in skin care products. Palm oil is good to use in soap as it gives hardness to the bar making it last for a longer period of time.

Rosemary Oleoresin (Rosemary Oil Extract)

Rosemary Oleoresin, also known as Rosemary oil extract or ROE is an oil soluble, natural extract of the leaves of the rosemary plant used to retard rancidity in natural oils. Its potent antioxidant properties are attributed in large part to carnosic acid, one of its major constituents. ROE is 100% natural and is the most effective natural preservative to be used in the manufacture of cold process soap.

Organic Juniper Essential Oil

Steam distilled from the berries of the Juniper tree, this beautifully fragrant essential oil makes a great ingredient in skin care. Naturally astringent, Juniper essential oil is great for toning skin. It's particularly useful in body care products.

Organic Birch Essential Oil

Extracted from the bark of Birch trees in northern Scandinavia, Birch imparts a wintergreen scent and is very beneficial to skin, especially with its anti-inflammatory qualities. Birch also possesses a lightening effect to the skin.

Organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil

Cold processed from the peel of the Orange, this vitamin rich essential oil is a great gift to aromatherapy and body care. Orange essential oil has been shown to have powerful antioxidant and antimicrobial effects. One study even showed its efficacy in wound healing. It has been used in skin care for years due to its soothing and regenerative effects. In aromatherapy, Orange's effervescent scent is equally uplifting and relaxing. Studies have shown Orange to be effective in reducing anxiety, stress and depression.

Arctic Lingonberry Extract

The Lingonberry is Scandinavia's most widely harvested wild berry. It grows in dry soil, especially in spruce forests and lichen-covered ground. Lingonberry is very popular as an ingredient for its beneficial effects on skin. The berry extract contains large amounts of flavonoids, moisturizing properties, phenol compounds and antioxidants. The seed oil promotes skin renewal. Antioxidants and essential fatty acids (omegas) provide the skin with important nutrition. The leaves of the Lingonberry plant contain arbutin, which has a lightening effect on skin discoloration. Lingonberry has high levels of vitamin C, which protects and brightens the skin.

Wild Crafted Juniper

Wild harvested from National Parks in California, juniper gives our soaps a very distinctive woodsy scent. This particular Juniper has a rich, resinous scent and a bright fruity edge.

Arctic Cloudberry Seed Oil

Cloudberries are wild berries that grow all over Finland, but are most abundant in boggy areas around the Arctic Circle. Because of its ability to survive temperatures of -40° F, the Cloudberry is one of the few flowering plants to have spread to the farthest north. Its geographical location, with nights that are significantly colder than the days, enables Cloudberries to produce twice as much vitamin C as oranges. Cloudberry Seed oil contains large amounts of linoleic and alpha-linoleic acid (omega 6 & omega 3), vitamins A and E, and plant sterols. It strengthens skin, prevents aging and due to its antioxidant effects, protects skin from external factors. Moreover, the detoxification properties of Cloudberry Seed oil help to make the skin look brighter and more radiant. The benefits of Cloudberry seed oil have been studied in numerous independent cosmetic labs. It has been proven from investigations in independent labs in Finland to be one of the most effective antioxidants for preventing oxidation of the skins structure.

To keep your bar longer, keep it dry between uses. We recommend that you try one of our soap dishes or buy a dish that drains the bar well. Enjoy your soap and just a bit of information, most of our customers say that our soaps usually last approximately one month per bar.
