On Father’s Day we have lots of reasons to celebrate, like those big bear hugs, or the years it took off his life when he taught us how to drive, or the sage (and not so sage) dating advice.

At The Australian Natural Soap Company we believe that everyone deserves (or maybe needs) a little pampering every now and again, so, for father’s day, we’ve whipped up a whole bunch of gift packs and products perfect for every different kind of dad.

FOR THE DADS WHO APPRECIATE THE FINER THINGS

Father’s Day Gift Box Available in store $52

This Father’s day we’ve made things easy for you and combined three of our ALL TIME FAVE PRODUCTS, wrapped them up, and topped them off with a bow! Peppermint and Pumice soap is an amazing exfoliant and will have him feeling squeaky clean whilst the  Man Care Oil will leave his skin silky smooth, top it off with a spritz of our True Love For Him Cologne and you’ve got yourself a brand new man!

FOR THE DADS WHO MADE BEARDS COOL BEFORE HIPSTERS WERE BORN

Your dad’s facial hair was cool before it was cool to grow facial hair! One of our best sellers, The Beard Box, includes Beard Grooming and Aftershave Oil that will leave him soft and smelling amazing, and our Beard Shampoo that shampoos and conditions the beard whilst being gentle on the skin. Both products are popped into our Big Travel Tin and topped with a bow.

ZINC – THE BEAUTY HOLY GRAIL

Skin
WHY WE LOVE IT

At The Australian Natural Soap Company we strongly believe in the curative and calming powers of Zinc. Its healing powers have been a common fixture in homes since the early nineteenth century and for good reason! Zinc is what problem, itchy and irritated skin Refer to as kryptonite! Highly recommended for anyone with dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, abrasions, rashes and irritations PLUS it’s gentle and safe for all ages.

WHAT IS CALAMINE ZINC?

Zinc is classified as an antipruritic, which means it’s a substance that stops itching, it’s an astringent, a substance that shrinks tissue to reduce swelling, it reduces the skin’s production of sebum (the oily muck we secrete from our glands that causes blackheads and whiteheads) and tightens pores. If that’s not good enough it also forms a protective coating on the skin, which acts as a protective barrier saving you from further damage.

WHO AND WHAT IS ZINC GOOD FOR?

A shorter list would be WHAT IS IT NOT GOOD FOR?

  • Acne
  • Nappy rash
  • Sunburn
  • Abrasions
  • Rashes
  • Insect bites
  • During pregnancy – the abundance of skin ailments (itchiness, rashes, eczema, stretch marks to name but a few)
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Dermatitis

Plus it’s super duper gentle and ideal for anyone with sensitive skin!

Made from the old time calamine recipe – saponified castor oil, olive oil & zinc oxide – cause we don’t need to complicate things.

Combines zinc with coconut, macadamia, avocado, grapeseed, apricot kernel, olive, castor, sweet almond, rice bran, jojoba, evening primrose and rosehip oils. Great for red and irritated skin plus an amazing overnight face mask that can help with blemishes, irritation and have you waking up to soft and gorgeous skin.

All Australian Natural Soap Company‘s soaps are handmade in Australia, vegan, cruelty free, paraben free, sulphate free, detergent free and palm oil free. They are also biodegradable as is their beautiful packaging. Certified Cruelty Free.

Winter Skin Saviours

It’s that time of year where we swap iced coffees for warm lattes and summer shorts for thermals; it’s winter in Melbourne! At ANSC we have exactly what you need to hibernate this season and protect your skin against the plummeting temperature and freezing wind!

 

HYDRATE YOUR FACE

When your days are spent darting from the chilled and windy streets to office buildings blasting hot air it’s no wonder your skin is dehydrated! Luckily in our all natural, vegan, palm oil free arsenal we have a range of INTENSIVE SKIN DROPS that are ready to go into battle for your face!

 

HYDRATE YOUR BODY

Luxuriate with our super moisture restoring and sensitive skin loving ABSOLUTE AVOCADO SOAP! Lather up in the shower before massaging in one of our best sellers, DAILY SKIN THERAPY, to restore hydration and leave your skin silky smooth.

 

EXFOLIATE

Why is it that when the season changes our legs seem to grow reptilian scales? Luckily we know just the cure for dehydrated flaky skin! Our range of SKIN BRUSHES are perfect for gently removing dry skin cells whilst stimulating blood circulation. Or try one of our fave exfoliating soaps PEPPERMINT & PUMICE or FAIR TRADE COFFEE!

 

REST AND RELAX

Winter is the time for hibernation, so why not hibernate in aromatic luxury? We’ve just launched our new and decadent Scent Bar that includes three different BATH SALTS to suit any nose.  

 

CAPTURE THE SCENT OF THE SEASON

When I think of what winter smells like I think of warm spices, chai lattes and subtle sensual florals. All of which are captured so perfectly in some of our favourite soaps CHAI, ROSEMARY & SWEET ALMOND and PATCHOULI PERFECTION.

ANSC INTRODUCES PLASTIC FREE SHIPPING

ethics, PLASTIC FREE, Skin, Uncategorized

 

Amazing Skin Care that is created and delivered to your door entirely PLASTIC FREE!

Reducing the amount of plastic you use in your day to day life just got easier with ANSC and our entirely PLASTIC FREE shipping options and skin care range. Because it’s just as important to keep our complexions clear and beautiful as it is our world

THE FACTS

  1. Plastic doesn’t biodegrade they photodegrade – breaking down into smaller and smaller toxic bits contaminating soil and waterways
  2. Over the last ten years we have produced MORE plastic than the whole of the last century. So regardless of whether you recycle the energy used to re-use plastic is still unsustainable
  3. Even if recycling worked in the mass that we produce it – We currently recover only 5% of the plastics we produce.
  4. Microbeads, commonly used in facial cleansers, are not only bad for the environment, but also harmful to our skin and are overly abrasive. Use one of our amazing facial cleansers instead! For a deep clean that won’t leave your skin raw we recommend the ever popular Activated charcoal.

So what’s the point of buying plastic free, vegan, palm oil free products if they are delivered using plastic, leaving you with  a whole bunch of unsustainable waste?

By choosing ANSC and our plastic free shipping options you are choosing healthy skin AND a step in the right direction to a healthy world.

The Super Powered Activated Charcoal Cleanser

Skin

activated charcoal 2At The Australian Natural Soap Company we are all about using the power of nature to pamper, clean and love our skin, and what better way than with our super popular Activated Charcoal Soap!

Why we love it!

How can one soap do so much? Our exfoliating facial cleansing soap draws toxins from deep in the pores for a sparkly clean feel, while soothing and healing the skin. Ideal for combination and acne prone skin and a must have for stubborn blackheads! If that’s not enough, Activated Charcoal Soap is also antibacterial therefore awesome at killing odour at the same time as softening and conditioning your skin.

So, how does activated charcoal work?

Activated Charcoal works by trapping toxins in its minuscule pores, absorbing them and removing them from your skin, bye-bye imperfections!

How do I use it?

For gentle use as a cleanser it is recommended to lather the soap in your hands, then gently massage into the skin. Double trouble, when the bar is used directly on the face is acts as an exfoliator.

The Australian Natural Soap Company’s Activated Charcoal Soap Can be purchased ONLINE or at one of our AWESOME STORES.
