Vanilla and Chocolate Tablea Soap
For the sweet tooth, both chocolate and vanilla might hearken back memories of a tasty treat. But not many people know that the two contain significant antioxidant properties. Our Vanilla and Chocolate Tablea Soap then harnesses the antioxidant-rich goodness of vanilla bean and tablea; distilling it into a nourishing soap that's a treat both for the senses and the skin.
Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Cocoa Butter give the soap an ultra-hydrating base that also helps *protect the skin barrier. Aside from its **antioxidant activity, Vanilla is also said to exhibit ***neuroprotective activity, which can protect cells from damage. The same goes for Chocolate—cocoa is said to help ****protect nerves from injury and dysfunction while protecting you from free radicals.
Caution: Do not ingest.
