New Look Website

We have updated our website to look less pink and white and more neutral.   We  felt it needed tweaking as it just felt a bit too girlie, and we are aiming to produce soaps and bath products for kids and men, and not just women.  So with this in mind, we've dropped the sugar coconut ice look in favour of cooler greens, greys and monotones.

Palm Oil

EarthKandi has made the decision not to use any more palm oil in its soaps.   We have been using sustainable palm oil, but even this sits ill on our ethical stance, and we feel that we must stop using any kind of product that has even the remotest possibility of destroying our environment and the animals on our planet.

Juicy Fruit Glycerine Soap

Mouthwatering soap made with real lemon, orange, grapefruit and lime juice and zest, and orange fragrance oil.   Smells divine.

Range Recherche from EarthKandi

Introducing our new range of exclusive, limited edition soaps.   Using designer fragrances and our own unique mix of scents, here is our first baby....the reborn, Lava Noir.

Frankincense Essential Oil Night Cream

RECOMMENDED FOR: Mature skins. A very rich, night cream with a strong, musky scent. One of the very best anti aging essential oils around after Patchouli combined with a drop of Carrot Tissue Oil for added boost.

Frankincense is used in modern cosmetics to rejuvenate the skin and has excellent cytophylactic properties (encourages the growth of skin cells) while being a good all-over skin tonic.The inherent astringent qualities of this oil also act as balancer of the skin and reduce any dry or oily skin condition returning it to normal.

With all these good therapeutic properties, it is a powerful ally in the fight to keep wrinkles at bay, while at the same time improving the tone and quality of the complexion, even in more mature skins.

Mixed into this cream is carrot tissue oil and a drop of Patchouli, both powerful cell regeneration products and Neroli Essential oil for its anti aging and soothing properties.

Ingredients: Aqua, Cocos Nucifera, Cetearyl alcohol, ceteareth amygdalum, Prunus Armeniaca, Champagne, Citrus Aurantifolia, Hamamelis Virginiana, Glucose & Glucose Oxidase & Lacto peroxidase, Acidophilus, frankincense EO, carrot tissue oil.

Cherry Kernel & Mandarin Moisturiser

RECOMMENDED FOR: All skin types. Light and refreshing redolent of summer and warm sunny days. Non greasy and very easily absorbed. A very relaxing oil, which encourages calm and de-stresses.

Cherry Kernel Oil is cold-pressed from the kernels of the Prunus avium tree and is a light, emollient, rapidly absorbed oil which is rich in linoleic and oleic acids. It also contains vitamins A & E and a high proportion of alpha, delta and gamma tocopherols, making it highly stable and suitable for mature skin.
Cherry kernel oil is known to contain the polyunsaturated fatty acid eleostearic, which helps to protect hair and skin from UV damage.

Mandarin Essential oil is used in aromatherapy on the skin for stretch marks in pregnancy and skin conditions such as acne, oily skin, rejuvenation and mature skin.

Base cream ingredients:Aqua, Cocos Nucifera, Cetearyl alcohol, ceteareth amygdalum, Prunus Armeniaca, Champagne, Citrus Aurantifolia, Hamamelis Virginiana, Glucose & Glucose Oxidase & Lacto peroxidase, Acidophilus.

Rose Absolute Moisturiser

A light refreshing face cream, feminine and soothing, with the healing, hydrating and regenerating properties of rose absolute, with a touch of Neroli True (Orange Blossom Essential Absolute Oil). Neroli oil encourages cell regeneration and is a great anti ageing oil.

Organic base. 50mls.

CAUTION: Although this cream uses very diluted amounts of absolute, Rose oil should not be used if you are less than 6 months pregnant as it can encourage menstrual flow.

Base cream ingredients:Aqua, Cocos Nucifera, Cetearyl alcohol, ceteareth amygdalum, Prunus Armeniaca, Champagne, Citrus Aurantifolia, Hamamelis Virginiana, Glucose & Glucose Oxidase & Lacto peroxidase, Acidophilus, Rose Absolute EO, Neroli Absolute EO.

What is Cold Process Soap?

Cold-process soapmaking requires exact measurements of lye and fat amounts and computing their ratio, using saponification charts to ensure that the finished product does not contain any excess hydroxide or too much free unreacted fat.   It really is an art and requires time, dedication and attention to detail.  Most soap makers formulate their recipes with a 4–10% deficit of lye so that all of the lye is converted and that excess fat is left for skin conditioning benefits.
The lye is dissolved in water. Then oils are heated, or melted if they are solid at room temperature. Once the oils are liquified and the lye is fully dissolved in water, they are combined. This lye-fat mixture is mixed until the two phases (oils and water) are fully emulsified.Emulsification is most easily identified visually when the soap exhibits some level of "trace", which is the thickening of the mixture. (Modern-day amateur soapmakers often use a stick blender to speed this process). There are varying levels of trace. Depending on how additives will affect trace, they may be added at light trace, medium trace, or heavy trace. After much stirring, the mixture turns to the consistency of a thin pudding. "Trace" corresponds roughly to viscosity. Essential oils and fragrance oils can be added with the initial soaping oils, but solid additives such as botanicals, herbs, oatmeal, or other additives are most commonly added at light trace, just as the mixture starts to thicken.
The batch is then poured into moulds, kept warm with towels or blankets, and left to continue saponification for 12 to 48 hours. (Milk soaps or other soaps with sugars added are the exception. They typically do not require insulation, as the presence of sugar increases the speed of the reaction and thus the production of heat.) During this time, it is normal for the soap to go through a "gel phase," wherein the opaque soap will turn somewhat transparent for several hours, before once again turning opaque.
After the insulation period, the soap is firm enough to be removed from the mould and cut into bars. At this time, it is safe to use the soap, since saponification is in essence complete. However, cold-process soaps are typically cured and hardened on a drying rack for 2–6 weeks before use. During this cure period, trace amounts of residual lye is consumed by saponification and excess water evaporates.
