Significantly improved eczema

I’m not overly fond of the scent and look of the product but after only using this on my hands, after a week the dermatitis on my fingers has all but disappeared and I am able to enjoy wearing rings on my fingers again. Any time I’m out and have to use normal hand wash I have noticed how dry my hands feel afterwards compared to this product which is very moisturising and doesn’t interfere with the skins moisture barrier. I assumed people with eczema shouldn’t use soap at all but this product has opened my eyes. If only there was a nicer scent available and would be good if it came in individual use sizes like other brands that offer travel soap tins.

Lovely soap

Great mild soap. Doesn't dry out skin, even when used on face. Took a while for me to get used to the woody smell, but now I quite like it. Would recommend to anyone after a no-nonsense, reliable, non-irritant soap.

Sabun Frequently Asked Questions

What is natural soap? Is Sabun Natural?

Sabun is a natural soap  - Natural soaps do not contain any artificial ingredients, harmful chemicals or perfumes. Many soaps contain synthetic preservatives, fragrances, colours , emulsifiers and other ingredients – some of which many people are allergic to such as Tetrasodium EDTA, DEA, BHT, formaldehyde, and lanolin which are known skin irritants.

Many commercial soaps are made from animal tallow or fats – look for the ingredient sodium tallowate on the label. Animal fats block the skins pores.

Sabun is not made from any animal fats but just olive and laurel oils - it contains 80% olive oil which serves as a natural humectant for the skin - helping the skin to retain its moisture and olive oil doesn’t block the skins - it lets it breathe.

Is sabun ok to use on eczema?

Sabun has proven to be good for those people who have eczema due to allergies to certain chemicals which they are putting on their skin by using commercial soaps, moisturizers and other cosmetics. The above chemicals are common in many cosmetics and soaps.

Since Sabun has no synthetic ingredients - unless you are allergic to olive oil or laurel oil - then it should be very soothing on the skin.

The olive oil also serves as a good relief to exceptionally dry skin as it helps the skin maintain its natural moisture.

Why is olive oil good for your skin?

Olive oil has some unique characteristics that make it not only a great medium for a soap base but it is full of beneficial factors that your skin needs. The human skin has the ability to draw in what it needs in the amount it needs and reject what it is sufficiently supplied with. 

The natural properties of olive oil used in sabun also acts as a natural protector of the skin, helping to shield it from the harmful rays of the sun and some of the toxins and pollutants in the air that can damage it.

Can I wash my face and hair with sabun?

Yes - sabun is very gentle on the face and is great for removing make up. It is also very good on the hair and has proven to be excellent for people with dandruff. It has also been shown to be good to combat nits. The nits find it difficult to lay their eggs in the hair shaft due to the olive oil.

Can I use sabun for shaving?

Yes, sabun is ideal to use for shaving and leaves the skin feeling moisturised.

sabun helps with eczema and sensitive skin

Sabun is recommended for those with sensitive skin and for eczema and psoriasis. It is perfect for babies.
