Benefits of Sabun
Traditionally this soap has been recommended for many skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis and dandruff due to the ingredients and their benefits.
The high Olive oil content of Sabun (more than 80%) forms an invisible, non-greasy, breathable skin barrier that does not block the skins pores while also serving as a humectant drawing moisture to the skin.
Medicinally, olive oil is anti-inflammatory, making it a good skincare oil for sensitive or irritated skin.
The humectant (moisture-drawing) quality of sabun makes it useful in the treatment of chronic dry skin. It has some natural disinfectant properties and also tends to rev up cellular activity, making it useful in assisting the skin's healing processes.
Laurel Oil (oil of bay laurel berry) is also a natural ingredient which is antibacterial so helps to thoroughly cleanse the skin.
Sabun Olive and Laurel oil soap can be used all over the body including face and hair as it is so mild and is excellent to use for shaving with as it leaves the skin thoroughly moisturized. It is also suitable for babies and young children.
