Chalmers Dale’s Jojoba Moisturising Soap is made using Australian Sourced Jojoba Oil, which has been extracted from seeds grown without the use of pesticides. This results in an extremely gentle and pure soap base of near neutral pH.
In addition to this jojoba ester beads are incorporated to provide gentle, and effective mild exfoliation. It is gentle enough for daily use, and deposits a barrier of soothing Jojoba Ester which moisturises and softens the skin. These spherical jojoba ester beads are also odorless, and are totally biodegradable.
The Eucalyptus species have a fresh and lemony aroma which is uplifting. It has been used traditionally for supporting a healthy respiratory system and to soothe muscles after exercise. The Australian Aborigines used the leaves for soothing physical and emotional discomfort.
Eucalyptus citriodora (commonly known as Lemon Eucalyptus Oil) contains 40-80% citronellal so it has a “remarkable ability” to repel mosquitoes when compared to DEET, the most popular synthetic commercial insect repellent today.
It also has anti-inflammatory and pulmonary effects: a study has shown in vitro function of human ciliary respiratory cells is impaired at higher concentrations of eucalyptus oil.
Another in vitro study demonstrated that high concentrations of essential oils may reduce human nasal respiratory cell ciliary activity.
