No More Dove….FINALLY!
Not because the ingredients are simply not good but because they made an UNBELIEVABLE (I am still in disbelief) NASTY, suggestion that black women would prefer to be white and Dove is the way to get us there. To be VERY CLEAR. The commercial was distasteful at best. It was a vile misrepresentation of what black women want. Additionally isn’t Dove about removing dirt and residue not the color of skin!
I say finally because YOU have been fooled to believe the ingredients of Dove soap and others like it are good. The fact is, they are not.
Ever wonder why we brag about our soaps? OMhh Spa Bars are healthier, richer and absolutely more moisturizing than the traditional ivory and Dove like soaps. Why- because we retain our glycerine and use the best moisturizing ingredients nature has to offer. Manufactured soapmakers take OUT the glycerin and sell it seperately for things like lotion and cream.
What is retained glycerine?
Retained glycerine simply means keeping the glycerine. Glycerine forms when lye and oils are combined together- saponify. Glycerin is a humectant, meaning it attracts moisture to your skin. Glycerin is a natural by-product of the soapmaking process. OMHH’s glycerine is derived from VEGETABLE oils so we have the benefit of being vegetarian or vegan. Retaining glycerine makes our Spa Bars gentler on your skin, perfect for persons with dry or sensitive skin. Our Spa Bars also have a lower pH than other soaps, which helps skin retain natural moisture.
Natural, Herbal, and Organic
OMhh Spa Bars use only the most natural ingredients. All of our fragrances are pure essential oils (plant extracts); our colorants are herbs; and our preservatives are plant extracts. We use no synthetic fragrances, colorants, or preservatives in any of our soaps. Gluten-Free except Shea & Oatmeal. No GMO’s
**Sustainability is important to OMhh. We use only certified organic palm oil from South American countries that is grown and produced using high levels of sustainability and our suppliers are members of the Palm Sustainability Council. We do not source any palm oil out of Southeast Asia or Indonesia.
Note…..you will find, hand-crafted soaps that retain glycerine and use all natural ingredients, rather than synthetic detergents will always be significantly more expensive than those that are mass produced.
OMhh Spa Bars are priced right, awesomely fragrant, lushly moisturizing and desirably skin softening.
