Handmade Soap - Atlantic Rowers Blend
Herby, clean and fresh.
We created this blend for two guys who built a boat in Newlyn and rowed it across the Atlantic. (Seriously, they actually did that. Phil and Skippy they're called and happily they're safe and sound now.). So we did what we could to help them, we created a bar that cleanses well and cares for your skin - even when you're doing seriously roughty toughty things. Teatree, rosemary, lavender and clove essential oils all have antibacterial and antimicrobial properties and together they smell clean and fresh.

High in essential fatty acids, rapeseed is a naturally emollient oil suitable for all skin types.
- , Castor Oil (Ricinus Communis)
Castor Oil (Ricinus Communis)
Pressed from the seeds of the castor oil plant, this is an extremely rich, healing oil, which makes it ideal for skin balms and lip products.
- , Sodium Hydroxide
Also known as caustic soda, this ingredient is required to turn oil into soap (the process of saponification).
- , Olive Oil (Olea Europa)
Olive Oil (Olea Europa)
We use deep green, extra virgin, cold-pressed olive oil for its superb and robust emollient (softening) action on particularly dry skin.
- , Cocoa Butter (Theobrama Cacao)

This solid, crumbly oil is extracted from the seeds of the cocoa plant and has a wonderfully sweet, chocolatey aroma.

Pressed from grape pips, this pale green oil is packed with vitamins, minerals and linoleic acid, and absorbs brilliantly.
- , Rosemary Essential Oil (Rosmarinus Officinalls)

Flowers and leaves are steam-distilled. Probably most familiar in our kitchens, rosemary is a very versatile oil.
- , Tea Tree Essential Oil (Melaleuca Alternifolia)
Tea Tree Essential Oil (Melaleuca Alternifolia)
Distilled from the leaves and twigs of the tea tree, tea tree oil has a very strong smell. If you're planning on mixing it into a blend, you need to combine it with other strong smells.

Lavender buds/flowers are steam-distilled to produce this oil.
- , Clove Essential Oil (Syzygium Aromaticum)
Clove Essential Oil (Syzygium Aromaticum)
We've all seen clove buds, usually in the kitchen. When water-distilled these little buds produce an essential oil.
It's a really potent scent, smelling strongly of spice and with 'woody' tones.

Product Testimonials Handmade Soap - Atlantic Rowers Blend
We use this as our kitchen soap. It's perfect as it's naturally antibacterial (without horrible chemicals!) and it smells lovely and fresh. We switched from commercial pump soaps in plastic bottles and will never go back - this soap uses no plastic, much kinder to the environment and skin and also much less wasteful - we found that with the pump soaps half of the soap liquid seemed to go straight down the drain. In contrast this lasts forever! We use solid bar soaps from PNS everywhere in our home now (and also at work - I'm the eccentric one carrying my own bar of soap around as it's so much nicer!) :-)
