How the humble soap became a hero....

Pure Peony Healing Body Bar is a soap designed for eczema prone hands and sensitive skin.  Suitable for babies.

"The healing body bar soaps are the only cleansers I have found that dont make me itch. Before I used to wake and find blood on the sheets from scratching while I sleep, now I dont scratch at all. It is such a relief not to itch plus my skin is improving" - Annette

Does not contain any of the common irritants or allergens used in other soaps and body wash, namely:

  • No Fragrances. Even natural ones can irritate sensitive skin.
  • No Parabens. A preservative that disrupts the function of hormones naturally found in your body.
  • No Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES). Sulfates strip the skin of its natural oils and increase penetration of the skin’s surface. They are also irritants for people with sensitive skin or eczema.
  • No Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS).  SLS bonds with other common soap ingredients, resulting in a carcinogenic nitrosamine, causing skin irritation and allergic reactions.
  • No Methylisothiazolinone & Methylchloroisothiazolinone. Preservatives that are a strong allergen.  Allergy to methylisothiazolinone is extremely common and more extensive and can cause severe whole-body  contact dermatitis.
  • No Cocamidopropyl betaine. Synthetic fatty acid that can cause allergic reaction -  tightness, redness, or itchiness, blisters or sores.
  • No Triclosan. This chemical is most often found in antibacterial soap. Triclosan actually promotes the emergence and growth of bacteria resistant to antibiotic cleansers. It also creates dioxin, a carcinoge.

Our safe, natural bars are available in a 3 pack or a single tin.
