As mentioned above, as we age our bodies begin to lose their ability to produce certain proteins and fatty acids. Unfortunately, these losses result in dry skin with less elasticity and more wrinkles.
That said it is obvious that soap doesn’t stay on the skin long enough to supply many supplements to the skin. However, it should also be apparent that you do not want a soap that strips away the natural moisture and minerals your skin needs.
Our Palmitic Soaps are formulated with a collection of oils and butter to promote the vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids needed to support maturing skin. Not intended to be a treatment but simply a source of residual benefits.

Efoliation & Clay Soaps
Similar to dry skin, mature skin can benefit from exfoliation. However, gentle exfoliation is a must! Over-exfoliation can actually speed up the aging process. Therefore you want to encourage dull skin cell turnover without harshly subjecting your skin to abrasive scrubs.
While palmitic fatty acid found in our Palmitic Soap is found in palm oil this fatty acid can be sourced in many other oils. Your own body produces palmitic acids. Actually to the point that it is the most common saturated fatty acid found in the human body. This acid is also essential in cell regeneration as a key component of cell membranes. Cells use acid as the fuel to carry out their functions.
With that said, the body’s ability to produce palmitic acid can decrease by as much as 56% with age. Keeping that in mind, this fatty acid is an excellent cleanser in soaps yet it is very gentle. Known to excel in breaking the surface tension on the skin allowing water to easily rinse impurities away.
