About Our Ingredients - What Goes Into Our Products?

It is not always easy to tell what's in a product, even when you look at the label. At Kind & Loving we believe it should be clear and simple to see what you are putting onto your skin. A full list of the ingredients we use is provided below.

Olive Oil
High in essential fatty acids, easily absorbed into the skin making the soap moisturising and mild. It is also full of anti-oxidants. Used in our soap making process.

Coconut Oil

RSPO Sustainable Palm Oil
We only use palm oil purchased from a certified RSPO member to ensure we are not adding to the problem of de-forestation, we use it in our soap as it produces a mild firm bar of soap with good cleansing properties and a creamy long lasting lather.

Shea Butter

Castor Oil
Is easily absorbed into the skin, has excellent moisturising properties and produces a dense lather in our soaps. Used in our soap making process.

Sodium Hydroxide
Used in our soap making process, this alkali is added to oils and water to create a simple chemical process called Saponification. After the process is complete there is no sodium hydroxide left and the result is soap.

Used in our soap making process, distilled water is used to allow the interaction between the alkali and the oils.
