THE REAL SOAP HEROES
OILS & BUTTERS
It's a delicate matter, achieving the optimal balance of cleansing, moisturizing, nourishing and lather. Here's how it's done!
Our house blend of oils contains Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Organic Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Avocado Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Grapeseed Oil, and Castor Oil.
ORGANIC EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
Certified Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the highest grade of olive oil. Made from the first pressing of fresh olives it adds moisture and conditioning properties to handmade cold process soap.
Natural and pure, Coconut Oil is a powerful cleanser. Its role in keeping you clean is key and a valuable treasure.
RICE BRAN OIL
Rice Bran Oil is rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins and antioxidants from the vitamin E family. A mild oil that on its own is used for dry, flaky, sensitive, mature and delicate skin. We couldn't be more pleased with its effect.
Our Shea Butter is unrefined to retain every ounce of decadent moisturizing goodness it was born with. Undoubtedly, just like its Mama!
ORGANIC COCOA BUTTER
Our Organic Cocoa Butter contains loads of natural antioxidants, just like the chocolate you eat! The smell is tantalizing to say the least! It imparts a delicious chocolaty aroma to soap. Undeoderized, this rich, moisturizing butter is exclusively used in our natural soaps and anything with chocolate or coffee fragrance.
COCOA BUTTER (DEODORIZED)
Obtained from the organically grown Cocoa tree, its beans are extracted and, presto, deoderized Cocoa Butter occurs. Moisturizing and glorious!
Similar to Shea and Cocoa Butter, Mango Butter has a slightly different fatty acid content. It's natural emollient properties couldn't be more welcome at White Dove Sail!
Vitamins A, B12, B2, D, E and Beta-carotene is how Avocado Oil made it to the mix.
APRICOT KERNEL OIL
Suitable for sensitive and mature skin, this refined Apricot Kernel Oil gives the blend its personal boost.
Grapeseed Oil is silky, smooth and high in antioxidants. That's exactly why we use it.
Castor Oil helps draw moisture to your skin. Here comes a heap of bubbly lather!
ROSE PETAL INFUSED OIL
Tender rose petals rested in Olive and Rice Bran Oil, 6 weeks, in the dark. That's how you bring out the love!
FRUITS & VEGGIES
The marriage of Mother Nature and Father Science is somewhat a mystery in the soaping world. Nature's abundant benefits may suffer slightly in the realm of science and saponification. Mindful techniques are implemented to insure our soap does not overheat, allowing the natural elements in these ingredients to make it straight to your skin.
Although we love Father Science, this time Mother Nature is crushing it!
Rich in fatty acids, Vitamin C, B6, E, beta-carotene and antioxidants, it's organic to boot. That's the short list.!
ALOE VERA LEAF
Freshly peeled leaf of Aloe Vera, in all its gooey, translucent, skin soothing glory.
One of the best fruits for your skin, Papaya contains vitamins A, C and B, minerals and enzymes that help prevent skin damage, and has antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties. Peeled and pureed fresh!
Taken from the same Papaya, the seeds are carefully washed, thoroughly dried and ground with a mortar and pestle to achieve the ideal exfoliating finish.
Vitamins A, C and E along with beta-carotene and a wonderful source of skin healing antioxidants, Mango is excellent for rejuvenating your complexion.
Full of vitamin C, strawberries are also anti fungal and anti inflammatory. We use the whole berry, so the seeds play a welcome role in exfoliation, too. That's a bitty berry with big benefits!
Cucumber has a reputation for soothing skin irritations and reducing swelling of puffy eyes. We are partial to its addition to Cucumber Chamomile soap.
Come September all we want to hear is "Pumpkin." Here's an equally brilliant idea...it's beneficial for your skin year round. 100% pureed Pumpkin.
Acai berries are nutrient dense, high in fat (for a fruit), brimming with antioxidants AND organic. So delicate they wont last the trip out of South and Central America. Fortunately the puree works exceptionally well in our Acai soap!
Organic with beta-carotene, vitamin A and antioxidants. Carrots are not just for eyesight these days
Organic blended Blueberries. Pretty much nectar of the Gods!
Blueberry, Strawberry, Apricot, Blackberry, Raspberry and Cranberry. Natural exfoliation at different levels in a variety of soaps.

Coconut Milk has high levels of vitamin C which helps maintain the elasticity of skin, prevents wrinkles and age spots. Ours is strictly organic Coconut and water with no gums or thickeners added.
Almonds and distilled water. That's all she wrote. Made fresh in house.
Strong and freshly brewed. So strong it creates a slurry that adds a skin smoothing, gentle exfoliation. You know it's roasted locally!
Larger grounds for greater exfoliation, finer for mild. Wow! You'll never be the same after using this on the pads of your hands and the soles of your feet. I'm awake!
Reap the benefit of these sown
oats! Ground to the perfect exfoliating texture.
Kaolin is a gentle clay that can be used to exfoliate and stimulate circulation. Adding it to soap helps give some slip. Sometimes the Kaolin is skipped for French Green, Gold Brazilian, Kaolin Rose or Moroccan Red.clay.
Activated charcoal draws bacteria, toxins, chemicals, dirt and oil to the surface of skin, absorbs and carries them away when it is rinsed from your skin. What a pal!
GREEN TEA EXTRACT
Green Tea is a superb antioxidant, great for anti-aging and a skin soothing agent. You are familiar with the benefits inside your body, now try it outside!
HIBISCUS FLOWER POWDER
Hibiscus is a natural source of alpha-hydroxy acids. AHA's are known to help exfoliate and speed cell turnover.
