Hawaiian Stroll smells like a floral paradise! The fragrance is a heady, intoxicating blend of tropical flowers and succulents. This soap uses many unique ingredients!
First, it is made with hibiscus tea! Hibiscus is known to help even out skin tone, reduce the appearance of scars, and is rich in antioxidants to nourish and condition skin.
Next, mango, watermelon add tons of bubble and lather. These fruits add vitamins A and C, lycopene and amino acids which are full of antioxidants and are thought to have anti-inflammatory properties.
The fatty acids in coconut cream, the next unique ingredient in this soap, deeply condition skin as they add to the “superfat” of this bar. Superfat is extra oil or butter added to a soap recipe beyond what is required for saponification. Soapers do this to ensure mild and moisturizing bars that your skin will love.
Finally, rice purée adds tons of bubbles, but even better it is full of omega 6 fatty acids, which are known for their numerous benefits to skin including the promotion of healthy skin, gently lightening & evening completion, and strengthening mature skin.
I actually have been so impressed by the benefits of adding rice purée that I plan on adding it to my facial soaps in the future.
Hawaiian Stroll Soap was my entry for the June 2019 Soap Challenge Club, which is why it had so many interesting ingredients. This international club presents a monthly challenge to test the skills and knowledge of soapers around the world. The challenge for June 2019 was to add food and drink ingredients, which is harder than one might think. While I have not, as yet, won a grand prize for a Soap Challenge, I have won several other recognition awards with this prestigious club. Hawaiian Stroll placed 5th in the July 2019 Regular Category Food and Drink Challenge.
