A Cornishman’s dream soap, made with oodles of Proper Job ale… Made entirely by hand, we’ve taken a vat of ale, & added hop mash and crushed hops (Wilhemetta, the same hops that are used to make the beer) to give it a gentle hoppy scent. We’ve also sneaked in a generous dollop of skin-nourishing Shea butter, & essential oils of sweet orange & grapefruit because that’s what St Austell Brewery tell us the ale is scented with.
Made with a base of coconut oil & olive oil to give it a rich, smooth lather (rather like a good head on a pint of of beer, actually!), we think you beer-loving men are going to enjoy using this in the shower.
Proper Job Ale; A powerfully hopped, best-selling ale from St Austell Brewery. Beer is rich in B-complex vitamins, particularly B2 & B3, potassium and magnesium. The ancient Egyptians used beer to freshen the skin.
Hops; Have been used historically in skincare to treat dry skin. Contain humulone which can be an anti-inflammatory.Their scent helps create a sense of calm.
Shea Butter; Extracted from the nut of wild African trees. Contains several fatty acids which are needed to retain skin moisture and elasticity.
Sweet Orange & Grapefruit essential oils; Uplifting & balancing, their slightly astringent & cleansing properties mean they can help revive dull or tired skin.
