trevarno handmade soap
Trevarno are proud to be the first beauty company to meet The Organic Farmers & Growers strict standards to gain formal organic certification. This official recognition with Britains longest established organic certifier guarantees the purity of the Trevarno range and assures customers that products are both ethical and sustainable. With organic certification being the only way to ensure that products are as pure and natural as possible,
Trevarno works hard in sourcing the highest quality, socially just and ecologically responsible suppliers of ingredients for their skin care range. Just a few examples of these practices includes buying locally grown West country herbs and obtaining sustainable Palm Oil from a producer who works closely with the Worldwide Fund for Nature.
Due to the concentrated and pure nature of the organic ingredients used in all products, the skin nourishing benefits are magnified and a little goes a long way.
The ingredients used to make the base of our soaps are Extra Virgin Olive oil, Palm oil, Coconut oil and Cocoa Butter. These oils are combined and included in each soap because of their excellent skin care qualities and the deep cleansing properties they offer. This combination also produces a long lasting creamy lather bar which can be used down to the very last sliver.
Extra virgin olive oil was chosen as it provides an excellent base for infused herbal oils. It is also rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins and has superb emollient qualities.
Coconut oil is one of the most important ingredients for soapmakers as it produces natural creamy bubbles. It is obtained from the pressing of coconuts, the fruit of the palm tree and is an excellent emollient.
Cocoa Butter contributes to the hardness of the soap and is one of the finest moisturisers, coating the skin with a fine film, hence diminishing water loss and softening and protecting skin.
Palm oil is used to its best advantage in combination with Coconut or Olive oil and produces a hard, long lasting bar of soap. We know there has been a lot of press regarding Palm oil production recently and wanted to clarify that we do not buy our Palm from an unethical source; Trevarno Skincare feel very strongly about this subject and are committed to using ethical sources from Malaysia who are dedicated not to devastate areas but use sustainable development plantations.
The moisturising layer or superfat in our soaps includes herbs such as Lavender, Cinnamon, Rosehip, Camomile, Calendula and essential oils such as Bergamot, Patchouli and Sweet Orange which are mixed with vegetable oils such as Jojoba, Sunflower, Avocado, Coconut, Olive and Cocoa Butter. Each soap contains its own individual blend which is targeted towards various skin types and conditions. The ingredients contained in our natural and organic soaps are all food grade so are good enough to eat!
