Embrace - Natural, Vegan 117g - Handcrafted
Embrace bars were created to show support for the transgender and non-conforming people within our community. 50p of every Embrace bar sold will go to the Gender Identity Research & Education Society (GIRES). GIRES is a UK wide organisation whose purpose is to improve the lives of trans and gender non-conforming people of all ages, including those who are non-binary and non-gender. For more information about GIRES and why they're so very important please see my blog post, here.
Embrace bars are made up of glycerin, coconut oil, French Pink Clay and activated charcoal for colouring and are entirely vegan.
Activated charcoal is a charcoal that has been heated to unimaginable temperatures and combined with gases to create a powder that can trap toxins and bacteria, almost like a magnet would trap metals. It’s these purposes that can aid many different types of skin. When you have oily skin, it means you’re likely to be prone to bursts of acne because your cells are producing too much sebum. Activated charcoal can help to remove this excess oil, which in turn will reduce the breakout of blackheads and means tit can stop new breakouts from happening. People with sensitive skin often have eczema or rosacea which is incredibly debilitating, sore and irritated which means you have to be incredibly careful about what you use on your skin to prevent more irritation occurring. In theory, charcoal is perfect for sensitive skin, because its natural and gentle. But if you haven’t used any products with activated charcoal in before always do a patch test as you would any new product.
Glycerin is well known as an emollient and may create a barrier to help your skin retain moisture, easing dry and flaky skin and can help the skin to remain soft and supple. Coconut oil has been known to reduce inflammation and contains medium-chain fatty acids, which possess antimicrobial properties which have been rumoured, like activated charcoal, to soothe acne.
The pink layers contain French Pink Clay, a mild clay that is good for normal, sensitive and oily skin. French Pink Clay can be used to cleanse and detoxify the skin, remove dead skin cells and create an overall refreshed appearance. It can also be used to treat acne and other skin ailments; poor blood and/or lymph circulation and sun-damaged skin.
Caution, Pink French Clay has the potential to stain clothes. Should skin irritation occur, please discontinue use immediately.
