FAQs 

Why is a handmade natural soap better for my skin?
Natural soaps are not rough on your skin, they have no side effects, they have therapeutic properties as they are made from natural oils, real herbs and plant extracts. Their colour, texture and aroma comes from real fruits, vegetables, flowers, leaves and their extracts/oils. They are made in small batches to maintain quality and improve performance . By default, handmade natural oil made soaps are cured for 4-8 weeks.


Chemical skincare (most of it that you see adverts and buy) are made of 70%-90% water, 10%-30% artificial color and artificial fragrances. The remaining is all chemicals (artificial/bad preservatives) that must be there so your chemical skincare looks good to your eye all the time.

 

Will using ZoeM handmade soaps leave my skin dry?

ZoeM handmade soaps will not only leave your skin moist, but also you may never feel the need to apply an after shower body moisturiser. They are designed to treat your skin like a baby’s, leaving it soft and supple after wash. We’d not be surprised if you save all the dollar bills forever on body lotions.

Unfortunately, the load of chemicals used in the “big brands” have changed the perception about “soaps”. You may think a body wash is better than a soap but it actually is the opposite. Body washes are mostly (70%-90%) water and you don’t realise the torture your skin undergoes everyday because the rest of it is just chemicals to keep the water , artificial color and artificial fragrance intact.

 

When can I expect results?

For best results, use the ZoeM handmade soaps within 4 weeks after you receive it. ZoeM soaps are made in cold pressed oils and herbal extracts that have natural therapeutic properties, keeping your skin safe and young.

Our skin renews every 28-40 days. For any product to show result, this is the timeline you should be patient enough.

What are the benefits of using handmade natural soaps in general?

Our body is entirely covered with the biggest organ skin, just like all other internal organs , the skin absorbs health and strength from exactly the same food that we eat. Remember, 90% of your results will come from optimum hydration, eating right diet and 0 synthetics. For the remaining 10% nutrition and to repair damage from pollution, excessive sunlight and daily chemical exposure, use skincare that is safely made from non-toxic plants.

The soaps, creams, lotions and the like that you apply goes inside your stomach and is digested in the same way every day exactly like your daily meals. Our skin has langerhan cells in the epidermis that carry it all the way to the deepest layer of the skin, from where all the chemicals are further processed by the body as part of daily digestion. Be careful what you put on your skin.
