This is our most unique bar of soap. Edelweiss grows on the Tibetan plateau at an altitude over 3000 meters (12000 feet). We pick the flowers, dry them and add them to the rose scented soap. Rose essential oil does not just smell wonderful, it carries anti-aging and moisturizing properties.
Made with Yak Milk
Almost everything from the yak is used to sustain the lives of Tibetan herdsmen and their families. As the main ingredient in our hand-crafted soap, Yak milk is superior to other milk. It has a higher fat content and is rich in protein, vitamin A, and calcium.
Yak Milk Soap is very different from the bars of soap purchased in supermarkets. Commercial soaps contain harsh chemicals which can irritate and dry out the skin. The high content of moisturizing ingredients and great fragrances make Yak Milk Soap a treat to the skin.
Handmade by Tibetans
Our soap is personally hand crafted by Tibetan men and women. Each soap is carefully created in small batches using saponified yak or sheep tallow, rapeseed oil, and yak milk. To enhance the fragrance, moisturizing, and exfoliating properties, most soaps contain Tibetan herbs or flowers, oatmeal, essential oils, and mineral colorants.
Soap Care: Some tips to get the most of your hand-made natural soap!
- Use a soap dish that offers drainage so that the soap can dry in between uses.
- Natural soaps are high in natural glycerin and vegetable oils. It is important to store soap in cool and dry locations with plenty of air circulation.
- Keep your stored soap out of direct sunlight, as natural ingredient colours and scent may fade.
If storing several soaps, it is best to store similar scents together.
