Sensitive Skin Alert?
What does the Brand Claim about Soapworks India Turmeric and Sandalwood Soap (Haldi and Chandan)?
Turmeric is an excellent exfoliating agent; turmeric can help eliminate the signs of aging… Turmeric is beneficial for oily skin as it regulates the production of sebum, an oily substance produced by the sebaceous glands. Sandalwood acts as an astringent and orange juice, being a source of vitamin C, helps clear the blemishes…
Sandalwood is a virtual ware house of goodness and has antiseptic, astringent, anti inflammatory and disinfectant properties. The antiseptic quality of sandalwood benefits to treat rashes, acne, blackheads and other skin eruptions. Its germicidal quality inhibits the growth of bacteria. It is also a natural astringent, especially for oily skin and also helps in toning up the skin. To better understand these terms and their significance, I have given below a brief definition of the following properties.
Made with the goodness of Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Red Sandalwood Powder, Organic Turmeric
How to Use:
Use like any other soap. As it is very soft, be extra careful to store it in a dry place.
My Experience with Soapworks India Turmeric and Sandalwood Soap (Haldi and Chandan)
This soap comes in a cling film wrapping. The soap is very soft and prone to getting damaged. In my opinion, if the packaging is made of paper…it will hold better and the oils will not seep out.
The soap is really very soft. Since it is a huge bar of soap, I prefer to break it into two and then use. Being so soft, you can literally break the soap into two with your hands. It looks so beautiful!! Totally artisanal and handmade.
The soap lathers decently and the fragrance is really great. It is more of that very very mild Mysore sandalwood with that hint of turmeric. Extremely pleasant. On me the fragrance does not last long, but it gives a soothing and pleasant feel during bath/face wash.The soap is really gentle. I did not experience any major dryness or stretchiness. Although, by the very nature of the ingredients; I feel those with very dry skin-are advised to use a moisturizer immediately after. Those with combination to oily skin will enjoy this the most!
