Q: Where are your products made?
At Forever Exotic the soaps are made right here in Australia.
We have a supplier that have been making our soaps and bath bombs for over 6 years in their Melbourne workshop.
Traditional handcrafted 'Low-Temperature Cold Process' ensures that your skin gets all the benefits of the nourishing and healing natural ingredients.
Q: So, what is the different about our soaps?
There are five key ingredients
*100% Pure Essential Oil
*Australian Extra Virgin Olive Oil
*Australian Goat’s Milk
*Australian Mineral Clay
Q: Why do you use Essential Oils and not Fragrance Oils?
They only use 100% pure essential oils because they are natural plant extracts.
Fragrance oils are synthetic compounds that dry and irritate your skin.
Essential oils have long been revered for their ability to soothe the body and harmonise the mind.
What many people do not realise is that essential oils can kill bacteria, fungi, and viruses.
They can fight infection, treat skin conditions, and eliminate harmful microbes.
Q: Why does Our Soap have Glycerine when other soaps don’t seem to have it?
When soap is made from vegetable oils, the result is a base or crude soap and glycerine.
Many commercial soap makers, remove the glycerine from their soaps and sell it at a higher price to companies for use in moisturising products.
Our supplier leaves the glycerine in their soaps to give you its full moisturising qualities.
Q: Which base oils do you use in your soap?
They use Extra Virgin Olive Oil for four good reasons:
Olive oil is an antioxidant that can protect your skin from free radicals, which are chemicals that can potentially damage the cells of your skin.
It contains fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K, powerful antioxidants that help soothe, repair, and nourish your skin.
Olive oil has been shown to have antibacterial properties and can assist to treat bacterial infections of the skin.
Olive oil is a popular natural moisturiser that is often used to soften both skin and hair.
Our suppliers are one of the few soap makers in Australia that use certified sustainable palm oil (CSPO).
Palm Oil is essential in soap to make it firm and long-lasting (and not turn to mush).
However, many soap makers still use palm oil that is not certified sustainable.
It’s vital that we all support CSPO for a healthy and sustainable environment.
Q: Why do you put Goat’s Milk in your soap?
Goat’s milk boasts high amounts of fats, particularly caprylic acid, allowing for gentle removal of dirt and debris without removing the skin’s natural fatty acids.
Goat’s milk is a good source of vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin shown to have anti-aging properties.
It is also a good source of selenium, a mineral shown to support a healthy skin membrane.
Goat’s milk can maintain your skin’s natural microbiome (natural lipids and healthy bacteria) by improving the skin’s barrier against pathogens, potentially preventing various skin disorders like acne and eczema.
Q: What is Clay and why do you put it in your soap?
Clay is the biproduct of the weathering of rocks and soil over time.
This process also consumes fossilised organic matter from plants and animals.
The result is a clay full of beneficial properties for your skin.
It has a cationic exchange capacity which allows it to remove dirt and toxins from your skin, and replace them with essential minerals such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, zinc, and selenium.
The minerals in the clay can help to rebalance oil flow, strengthen skin, and act as an aid for repairing scars.
Q: Can I really use the scented Soap on my sensitive skin?
Most skin sensitivities are aggravated by the synthetic ingredients, without these harmful ingredients, there is virtually nothing left to irritate your skin.
Q: What if I have eczema, psoriasis, or dermatitis?
Our customers with these skin conditions report that they can use our soap with success.
Our healing essential oils, moisturising olive oil, detoxifying clay, nourishing goat’s milk, and hydrating glycerine all contribute to a soothing and cleansing experience for people with sensitive skin.
That’s why we have many soap users with eczema, psoriasis, or dermatitis, and they all say the same thing: "Thank you!"
Q: How do you colour your soap?
Our supplier does NOT use any artificial colouring or food colouring in their soaps.
Soaps are coloured with natural mineral clays, ground herbs and botanicals.
Our pure essential oils also contribute to colour.
Q: Can I use the scented soap as shampoo?
Shampoo contains detergent, much like you would find in laundry detergent or bath gel.
These often include Sulphates, Ammoniums, Glycols, Parabens, Silicones, Formaldehydes, Alcohols & Synthetic Colours and Fragrances.
In most cases, our chemical-free and nutrient-rich soap will clean your hair just as well – without all the nasties.
That’s why thousands of people across Australia shampoo their hair with our soaps.
Q: Is there a proper way to wash your hands?
As coronavirus spreads, what you need to know about handwashing and the power of simple soap and water.
Excerpt by Olivia Willis, ABC Health & Wellbeing, 15 March 2020.
"In addition to washing your hands more often, you also need to make sure you wash them thoroughly.
To get your hands free of germs, you will need to latter them up with soap and scrub for at least 20 seconds under clean running water.
Get your hands wet, lather up, keep lathering to all surface of your hands, particularly your fingertips and around your nails then rise off - (said Mary-Louise McLaws, an infection control expert from University of New South Wales).
