Jade Queen | Body Bar | Olive, Avocado & Lime
Jade Queen will leave you feeling clean, refreshed with radiant and rejuvenated skin. Then you’ll remember your wash was free from single-use plastic, so you’ll feel green too. There are lots of peppermint soaps out there so I made sure this one is special.
Peppermint oil gives Jade Queen its cooling, soothing properties to rejuvenate your skin – making it a great morning soap. It encourages your skin to secrete the right oils too, fighting off acne. After the peppermint blast, rosemary essential oil and spirulina bring the antioxidant battle against free-radicals. Peppermint will make your skin feel young while rosemary and spirulina will make you look young. They fight the effects of ageing, with spirulina oil particularly good at encouraging your skin cells to repair. And, of course, you won’t find any SLS or parabens in Jade Queen. Because this is a handmade soap, the weight is approximately 90g.

Why should I use a soap bar instead of shower gel?
Firstly, because you’ll be keeping a plastic bottle out of a landfill or our oceans! But the right bar will can have superior benefits for your skin too. Soap bars contain more natural ingredients and less additives (or none, if you buy What on Earth), which means they are almost always more skin friendly. Plus because soap bars aren't counted as liquids they make for the perfect hygiene companion for flight travel. No pesky confiscations at customs, unless of course they fancy Jade Queen for themselves.
Aren't soap bars more expensive than shower gel?
A handmade product like Jade Queen may cost you more up front, but soap bars last far longer than a bottled gel. It’s much easier to judge how much soap you need when you’re lathering it from a bar, so you waste less - and how much gel slips through your fingers and straight down the drain everyday? Keep it in a cool, dry place (like your bathroom cupboard) and use all the scraps to make Jade Queen last even longer. Unless you’re a giant, your soap bar will last longer and save you money each wash.
Another tip for making your soap bar go further is investing in a eco-friendly bamboo pouf or natural sea sponge. They'll make beautiful bubbles and save you applying the soap directly to your skin.
Do soap bars carry bacteria?
This is a common worry when switching to a bar, and understandably. Fortunately there are reliable studies showing that while bars may carry some bacteria once used, you won’t get an infection or illness from them – so no need to worry.
Do soap bars expire?
Because soap bars are mostly composed of oils and butter they can easily last up to 3 years without spoiling. Natural changes will occur as you use it; colour may change and the scents will mature – but these are normal and won’t affect the wash or how hygienic they are.
