R/2 Handcrafted Soap with Shea Butter and Rosemary Essential Oil - Dry Skin

R/2 Handcrafted Soap with Shea Butter and Rosemary Essential Oil - Dry Skin


The glycerine naturally produced by the cold-process soap-making (7 to 8%) combined with the (unheated) essential oils make this soap a product that truly cares for your skin.

The transformation of shea butter and coconut oil by the soap-making reaction into glycerine ensures naturally strong moisturizing and softening benefits for your skin.
The R/2 soap takes care of dry and damaged skin, as the hydrating and nourishing benefits of shea butter are combined with the rosemary essential oil skin repair and protection effects.
This soap’s extraordinary smell comes only from its ingredients: you literally breathe in the plants and flowers used to make it.

Butyrospermum parkii butter (shea butter), aqua (water), cocos nucifera oil (coconut oil), sodium hydroxide, rosmarinus officinalis leaf oil (rosemary essential oil), limonene, linalool. 

Please see below for complete and transparent explanations on all these ingredients.

"As with any soap, avoid eye contact. If contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with clean water."



  • Butyrospermum parkii butter (shea butter): recommended for its protective properties against skin dehydration. Readily and durably absorbed by the skin
  • Cocos nucifera oil (coconut oil): coconut oil is obtained by expression from the dried inner flesh of the coconut, Cocos nucifera. Coconut oil is high in protective antioxidants and antibacterial fatty acids. It suits all skin types and is light, non-greasy and rapidly absorbed giving deep hydration and conditioning to skin, scalp and hair. Research shows it can improve skin elasticity helping prevent premature ageing and wrinkle formation.
  • Sodium hydroxide: also known as lye, is an essential ingredient in the soap making process. When sodium hydroxide beads or flakes are mixed with a liquid,  a lye solution is created. This solution, when mixed with fats and oils, will cause a chemical reaction called saponification: the lye and oil molecules combine and chemically change into soap and glycerin - sodium hydroxide will have then completely disappeared.
  • Rosmarinus officinalis leaf oil (rosemary essential oil): rich in volatile oils, flavonoids and phenolic acids that are antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, rosemary essential oil helps to cleanse and soothe skin. It has excellent toning and binding effects, while at the same time increasing blood flow with its rubefacient action, which in turn promotes proper skin function. It helps to relieve skin congestion, resulting in firmer skin and better skin tone. It promotes a healthy-looking complexion.
  • Limonene: a fragrant oil component, limonene is naturally present in numerous essential oils (citrus rinds), pine oil and mint oil.
  • Linalool: an aromatic compound present in its natural state in the essential oils of lavender and lavandin, scots pine or peppermint, as well as many plant extracts.
