The "Plantain + Oats" soap from uRBAN wHIP's Farmers Market Line is crafted with a blend of natural ingredients beneficial for skin health. Here's an overview of the key components and their benefits:

  1. Whole Plantain Fruit: Plantains, related to bananas, are rich in Vitamins A and C. Vitamin A aids in the growth of skin cells and overall skin health, while Vitamin C, an antioxidant, promotes healthy, rejuvenated skin and helps counteract free radical damage.

  2. Plantain Leaf: Known for its anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antimicrobial properties, it's effective for soothing insect bites, wounds, and reducing the appearance of scars due to its allantoin content which promotes skin regeneration.

  3. Creme Fraiche (Buttermilk, Yogurt, and Heavy Cream): Contains lactic acid, an AHA, which helps remove dead skin cells and stimulates new cell growth. These ingredients are rich in essential nutrients like calcium, vitamins A, D, B6, B12, biotin, and protein, beneficial for skin health.

  4. Goatsmilk: Offers gentle moisturization, suitable for sensitive skin.

  5. Olive Oil: Moisturizes the skin and is rich in antioxidants. In soap making, olive oil is used in "bastille" formulations, known for being gentle and suitable for delicate or sensitive skin.

  6. Coconut Oil: Known for its moisturizing properties, it helps create a rich lather and is beneficial for dry skin.

  7. Coconut Milk: Adds extra moisturizing qualities, making the soap creamy and nourishing.

  8. Cocoa Butter and Shea Butter: Provide deep moisture, nourish the skin, and improve skin elasticity.

  9. Aloe Vera: Soothes and hydrates the skin, known for its healing properties.

  10. Mulberry Silk: Adds a luxurious, silky texture to the soap's lather.

  11. Kaolin Clay, Brazilian Clay, and Bentonite Clay: Detoxify and gently exfoliate the skin, enhancing the soap's cleansing properties.

This soap is designed to be a versatile product, suitable as a facial cleanser, shampoo bar, or body soap. Its rich and creamy lather, combined with the natural benefits of its ingredients, makes it suitable for various skin types and conditions. The aging process of 3 months to a year ensures optimal quality.

For storage, allowing air to circulate around the soap bar helps it re-harden between uses, extending its lifespan. The unique handmade nature of each soap bar, with variations in color and swirl styles, adds to its artisanal charm. Being naturally scented and free from fragrance oils makes it an excellent choice for those who prefer natural skincare products. The combination of plantain, oats, and other nourishing ingredients offers unique benefits for skin health and appearance.
