This is the very first time making a Apple Cider Vinegar + Raw Honey Goat Milk Soap!
I have always hear about it, requested by customers, and ... skeptical about the ACV soap. But here it is, i finally remembered to pick-up a bottle of Nature's Intent Organic ACV from the grocery store and gathered my ingredients to give it a try.
Here are the skin-loving ingredients in this bar of goodness:
Organic coconut oil
Sunflower seed oil
Local raw honey
Aloe vera extract
Essential oils ( bergamot + tea tree )
Surprisingly, the soap hardened and tested at PH7 with in the first 24 hours ( usually within the first week or so, the soap is at PH9-10 ). I gave it a try as a shampoo and face wash with in the first 48 hours.
The raw, unrefined ACV is known for hair rinse to promote hair and scalp health. Its nutrients and enzymes helps to smooth and strengthen hair as well as remove hair product build up on scalp . This is a very useful wash for individual who often use multiple hair products and with dandruff and hair loss issues. RESULT: If you are a fan of Chloemason beer soaps as hair wash, you will L.O.V.E the ACV soap! My hair was clean, light, and amazingly shining! I also tried the soap on longer hair on Chloe ( shoulder length ), her hair is not as tangled in the morning, and its also amazingly silky and shining!
PS... This is an excellent preventive ACV hair shampoo for lice. Spring season is coming up and it is perfect time to get started on the lice prevention.
I still strongly recommend to use acidic rinse at least once to twice a week: 1:1 of water : lemon juice (ACV). Rinse your hair with warm water throughly after acidic rinse.
SKIN / FACE WASH
ACV is an inexpensive, traditional ingredient for skin health such as used in toner for individual with acne and oily skin. The acidity helps to cleanse and remove the toxins on skin, as well as balance your skin PH. It also helps to remove dead skin cell and brighten dull skin.
The raw honey, aloe vera, and essential oils are perfect to combat oily and acne prone skin. It is antibacterial and soothing!!
RESULT: Though I don't have major acne issues, the soap leaves my facial skin CLEAN...squeaky clean!! It is not any less than the clay or activated charcoal soap.
The scent of this soap is sweet and mild... i will be posting this amazing find on the product page soon!! Give it a try !!
