Natural honey soap

We want to promote consumption of bee products in Moldova, to attract attention to their beneficial properties – and not just as food. It’s not a secret that honey is very good for our skin, but we doubt many people apply it on their bodies, especially in a regular way. Propolis and beeswax are even less “popular”, though they seem to sharply increase the price of pharmaceutical products or cosmetics. We come with a simple solution: honey soap. This soap contains maximum quantity of honey, beeswax and propolis that can fit into a soap, and a bit of extra honey.

Seed It Forward natural honey soap consists of:

  • water and caustic soda (an essential ingredient of almost any soap)
  • vegetal oils – coconut oil, castor oil, palm* oil, sunflower oil, olive oil, sweet almond oil, macadamia oil, avocado oil, jojoba oil, cocoa butter, shea oil,
  • bee products (beeswax, honey, propolis) from sustainable apiaries,
  • pure essential oils for the aroma. Most often, it’s essential oil of lavender, made in Moldova,
  • in some soap types, lavender flowers or mint leaves.

Moreover, we want to make natural products accessible for everyone. So, our soaps are simple, without extra spending on package or marketing. Their use does not harm the environment, but actually helps it.

By buying a soap, you make a donation of 5 Moldovan lei for tree planting and caring, revitalization of degraded soils and conservation of biodiversity in Moldova (find out more about that in Seed It Forward activity reports).

Types of soaps available:

  • soap with the aroma of lavender
  • soap with the aroma of mint
  • soap with the aroma of pine (conifers)
  • soap with the aroma of citruses
  • soap ”Api” – no essential oils, but extra propolis
  • ”shampoo” – a soap that makes twice as much foam as the other ones. It is richer in castor oil and essential oils that are especially good for hair and scalp (lavender, eucalipt, lemon, rosemary, mint). It must be mentioned that it might not work for all types of hair – it is more difficult to use it for long or greasy hair, because it doesn’t contain chemical substances that usually “solve” the problem regardless of hair type, water hardness, etc. If you still use it as a shampoo, we recommend to rinse your hair with a light solution of vinegar. Otherwise, you can use it as simple “premium” soap – for hands, body, etc.

*Note: Some fractions of palm oil are harmful when used in food industry. However, it is one of the key ingredients in the soap, replacing animal fats. There is also an argument that usage of palm oil contributes to deforestation – but it is the same with almost every other type of oil that comes from conventional agriculture. Still, we try to compensate it by growing trees and promoting sustainable agriculture & permaculture.
