We use pure and natural plant essential oils for their medicinal properties and to scent our products whenever they are available. Some scents cannot be produced by plant steam distillation, or for some, the true and natural essential oil is so rare, over cultivated or expensive that we could not produce a practical product.fragrance is a blend of synthetic and/or natural ingredients creating a specific scent. Used in a few of Emz Blendz products. The products we make, that do contain fragrance, contain only a tiny amount of fragrance oil - 1% or less (which is substantially less than what you find in most other products), because they are meant to be nutritive body treatments rather than “perfumes”. When a desired scent is not availableas a natural essential oil, is severelyover cultivated as an essential oil, isunstable in preparations, or is extremely uneconomical,we use only high quality, cosmetic grade fragrances. See individual product lists of ingredients.
12. How long will my soap last?(top)
Of course that depends on how much and how many individuals are using the soap, but in general one bar of soap will last one person, who uses it everyday in the shower, about 4 weeks. If the bar is used next to the sink to wash hands with, it will last months. To ensure that your soap last's it's longest always leave your soap in a well-drained soap dish and above or out of the way of the showering water where it can completely dry in between uses.
13. Is this Glycerin soap, how is it different from glycerin soap?(top)
Glycerin is naturally produced during saponification (the process of making soap). Our soap contains all of its naturally occurring glycerin. Melt & Pour soap has some added glycerin, but will not last as long as our soap because of the solvent it contains.
14. What is Glycerin?(top)
Glycerin is a humectorant. It draws moisture from the air and holds moisture in, thus making it an excellent skin moisturizer and softener.
15. I have very sensitive skin, what should I use?(top)
All of our soap will be far better than any detergent based commercial soap, but our Pure & Simple Bar, extremely mild Baby Soap, liquid or bar form Lavender Soap, Oatmeal Milk and Honey Soap, Honey Calendula Soap bar, or our Original Organic Facial Soap would be some good suggestions.
16. I have acne or problem skin, what should I use?(top)
Soap suggestions include: Detox Facial Soap, Eucalyptus Tea Tree, Soap, Lemongrass and Lime Soap, Lavender Soap, Original Organic Facial Soap all have great antibacterial properties that will help fight breakouts. Emz Tea Tree Mint Sugar Scrub helps slough away clogging dead skin cells (this product has significantly helped many people with acne problems), and the Flower Essence Facial Toners have gentle antibacterial and healing properties. Also the Anti-Blemish Serum, which is designed to be applied directly to blemishes and problem areas. It contains potent bacteria fighting essential oils, aloe vera, lavender flower essence and Tea Tree essential oil, which is well known for it's natural acne fighting properties.
17. Do you use preservatives in your products?(top)
We use only natural extracts, plant essential oils and vitamin E to naturally preserve our products. Any product containing water (creams and lotions), could potentially be a paradise for bacteria and molds if they weren't properly preserved. For these products, we use a preservative blend consisting of natural extracts, vitamin E, essential oils (natural preservatives), and a globally approved, paraben-free cosmetic grade preservative called phenoxyethanol in minute amounts (less than .5%) in order to keep these products safe and healthy. Minute amounts of cosmetic preservatives can boost the preservative action of natural ingredients preventing bacteria to break down the nutritive ingredients in a product making it less effective or a health risk.
18. What is Shea Butter?(top)
Shea Butter also known as Karite Butter, comes from Central and West Africa where the Shea/Karite trees grow in the wild. So far cultivating the trees has been unsuccessful. The Karite tree produces almond like fruit and the butter is pressed from the pits of the fruit. It is extremely therapeutic, helping to heal dry, cracked, damaged or aged skin. It is readily absorbed by the skin and is renowned for its moisturizing and skin softening properties.
19. What's different and better about your candles?(top)
Most of the world's candles are made from paraffin wax. Paraffin is a petroleum product (a bi-product of oil refining) and it emits harmful soot and fumes when burned. We make all of our candles with 100% pure and natural soy wax or beeswax. These waxes are clean burning, and are 100% natural, renewable resources. All of our wicks are made with 100% cotton. Our candles will burn approximately 50% longer than a paraffin candle of the same size. Soy wax holds and releases scent more effectively and evenly throughout burning and soy wax can be easily cleaned up with warm soapy water. Using soybean products and soy wax candles supports US farmers and the economy.
