COMPLEX CREAM • detox cream soap for acne prone, problem skin with activated charcoal, clays, essential oils, and herbs • for face, body

Complex-ion soap bar for acne prone or problem skin with clays, essential oils, and herbs

My Complex-ion bars are exactly that, complex. They are a crazy blend of over a dozen additives aimed at calming problem and acne prone skin. The non-drying formula helps detoxify the skin while giving it a boost of beneficial ingredients.

This is the cream soap version of my popular solid cold process bar. A cream soap is made in a crock pot, using a combination of butters and oils and then saponified with a blend of potassium and sodium hydroxides, left to cure, and then whipped with vegeteble glycerin, distilled water, and a custom formulation of clays and herbs.

This is an UPDATED version of my previous formula. I now use a simplified soap base, making the soap softer and easier to use.

To use, apply with DRY fingers to a damp face! I find that once you start using it, it's best to keep the lid OFF! It won't dry out, but can actually soften if it gets wet fingers dipped in!


What's in it?

🍃🍃 Lavender essential oil can do just about anything! In this formulation it's used to not only help repair and sooth the skin, but to sooth your mind as well. Lavender oil is known for it's relaxing fragrance.

🍃🍃 Aloe Vera powder is another wonder ingredient. It reduces inflammation and itching, and moisturizes skin by reducing transepidermal water loss, and helps our skin recover from damage.

🍃🍃 Burdock Root is a purifier and an important herb for treating chronic skin conditions. It can collectively treat eczema, psoriasis, acne, boils, styes, herpes, carbuncles, cankers, and syphilitic sores.

🍃🍃 Ground Carrot and carrot puree peel give a boost of amazing antioxidants and vitamins and also act as a fine grain exfoliate.

🍃🍃 Tea Tree essential oil has antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties and stimulates the immune system. It's great for treating acne marks and active break outs.

🍃🍃 Activated Charcoal is a detoxifier that draws impurities out of the skin and opens up the pores.

🍃🍃 Zinc has a good antifungal property that helps protect and heal wounds and acne breakouts and well as helps to sooth and protect irritated skin.

🍃🍃 Tamanu Oil is one of my favourite oils to use straight. It helps to heal scars with skin healing, antineuralgic, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antibiotic, and antioxidant properties. I super fatted this cream with tamanu, meaning it's in there raw and not saponified.

🍃🍃 Peppermint essential oil helps cool and calm your skin with menthol, a thermoreceptor agonist. It makes our skin feel hot or cold even though there's been no change in temperature.

🍃🍃 Colloidal oatmeal helps smooth and comfort itchy, scratchy, and dry skin thanks to being rich with oat proteins. It also creates a hydrophilic film that forms at the skin surface. It consists of humectant and water-binding constituents and lipids.

🍃🍃 Raw Manuka honey is antimicrobial and healing. It's anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. It's a wonder food and a great and useful addition to skin care.

🍃🍃 Activated Charcoal is a detoxifier that draws impurities out of the skin and opens up the pores.

🍃🍃 Zinc has a good antifungal property that helps protect and heal wounds and acne breakouts and well as helps to sooth and protect irritated skin.

This is a soft processed cream soap. It's made almost the same way you make a cold process bar, but with a different combination of saponifiers. The result sets up as a cream instead of a solid. I only use organic and non-gmo oils and butters and use locally sourced ingredients when I can! All of my products are soy free.

➡ Each jar is about 4 oz by weight, not volume.
