Hot Process Bastille soap recipe for mature skin

The ingredients of a Bastille soap are perfect for mature skin because of the oils’ moisturizing and anti-wrinkle effects. This is a high superfat soap recipe that is balanced for 40-year-olds and up. The two-color design is made with skin-beneficial natural colors from Turmeric and Cocoa Powder. This even gives the soap anti-inflammatory abilities.

The soap is not meant to be very cleansing or bubbly. It is supposed to be conditioning and bring a healthy-looking glow to mature skin.

You can use the soap for face and body, but for hand wash you would probably like a more bubbly bar of soap.
