Using clean hands, wet soap and apply soap to fingers. Gently massage the face to cleanse. Rinse. You can also use this complexion soap with a konjac sponge, a cleansing brush or a towelette. Follow with toner and moisturizer.

Pro Tip: If you have very dry skin, we recommend only cleansing with soap in the evening. In the morning, use our Rose Hydrating Toner with a cotton pad instead.
Aloe Vera // Aloe + Skin = match made in heaven! Research shows that aloe vera is anti-inflammatory and antibacterial. It contains polysaccharides and sterols which help bind water to the skin (aka hydrated skin) as well as antioxidants which help prevent premature aging. Applied topically, aloe will help speed up healing, calm irritations, reduce redness, clear breakouts, and improves elasticity.

Rose Petals // Rose petals are synonymous with love, and when found in skincare products with anti-aging. You might be wondering, is rose worth all the hype? A Korean study recently found that rose petals actually help block age-causing enzyme activity and also helps your skin absorb vitamin C (a great anti-aging ingredient itself). So go ahead, indulge in a little rose!

Pink Clay // Pink clay has a unique composition which includes Kaolinite, Iron, Illite, Montmorillonite and Calcite. It can be used to cleanse and detoxify the skin, exfoliate dead skin cells, and to promote a rejuvenated appearance. It can also be used to treat blemish-prone skin and poor circulation.

Jojoba Oil // This oil is nourishing and naturally high in vitamin E. Out of more than 350,00 identified plant species, jojoba is the only plant that produces an oil so chemically similar to our skin’s sebum (aka it absorbs quickly!). When applied topically, jojoba oil will leave your skin feeling smooth, supple, will help increase elasticity and will decrease the visibility of fine lines.

Rose Geranium essential oil // Geranium is one of the few essential oils, which, in terms of Chinese medicine, may be considered cool and moist in energy. This means this oil is great for calming redness, while also being balancing and soothing to dry skin.

Great for dry skin!

I use this soap in conjunction with the pumpkin soap as I have combination skin. If I am traveling I use this solely to help with the dry skin from flying. It smells great and doesn't make my skin feel overly oily as a lot of "Dry skin" soaps do.

Gentle Clarifying

This clears everything off my skin (including foundation!) and leaves it smooth and soft. I use it once a day and it's lasted me almost a year. Great value for an amazing product.

Best soap EVER

From the moment I opened my box from Apoterra, I was amazed by the smell! I had several products so I wasn't sure what it was, but it was definitely this soap! Absolutely wonderful! I have used other bar soaps before, but they often left my face feeling dry. I do not have that issue with this soap:) It smells so great, I'm wishing this sent was offered in other products. I will most definitely be reordering this one!

Best face soap ever

I've never tried a face soap that made my face feel SO good. But it does. After using it, my face feels clean yet moisturized. This doesn't strip oils or skin. The soap is also an amazing deal - it comes in a big block, lathers as soon as you touch it, kind of melts into your hands, feels great on the face, rinses off easily, and leaves super clean, moisturized skin behind. It also smells and feels great. This soap is really incredible. I look forward to washing my face now because it means I get to use this.
