6 Facts About Calendula Milk Soap

Calendula Milk Soap Round Soap

Calendula Soap is cured for months, not weeks, to ensure the soap hardens naturally and lasts a good, long time.

Calendula has been used in skin care products for many years. However, the natural goodness of Calendula may be outweighed by all the additive, preservatives,  and other unnecessary chemicals that are normally added to soaps. Even many handcrafted soaps have added ingredients to make the soap harder, to give it a longer shelf life, or to add color.

Here are six things about Maine Soap Works’s Calendula Soap that make it so special:

  1. 75% Olive Oil: Rich in vitamins and minerals. Olive Oil nourishes the skin. It creates a soap that is extra gentle and mild.
  2. Sweet Almond Oil: This is food-grade oil pressed from edible almonds. It provides extra vitamins, including A, E and B6. This oil is easily absorbed by the skin and is known for being anti-inflammatory.
  3. Calendula grown in my garden with no pesticides. Hand picked and dried. Infused into the Sweet Almond Oil and allowed to steep overnight to ensure the anti-bacterial and healing powers of the flower petals are incorporated into the oil and end up in the soap.


    Here’s one of many Calendula patches growing in my garden during the summer of 2016.

  4. Lemongrass: anti-bacterial, antiseptic, and anti-fungal. Smells wonderful too.
  5. Cow’s Milk: Milk has been used in skin care for many, many years. The low concentration of lactic acid, which comes from the milk, serves as a natural exfoliating agent. This helps the skin shed dry skin cells, so the skin looks healthier. For more information on the benefits of milk in soap, read, “Milk Soap Benefits” from the livestrong.com website.
  6. Saponification: You cannot make soap without using lye. Lye and oils go through a chemical process called saponification. This process turns the lye and oils into soap. We carefully calculate the amount of lye and oils to ensure that a percentage of oil remains in the final product. This is called ‘superfatting’. Unlike many commercial soaps that are stripped of  glycerin and may be mostly chemicals and detergents, we leave the chemicals out and the goodness in our soap. This is why our soap cleans but doesn’t dry out your skin. Instead, your skin feels silky smooth.
