Cypress Soap- The Protector

Ingredients: Taiwan yellow cypress, juniper oil, cedar, beeswax, olive oil, canola oil, palm oil, coconut oil

Cypress grows on mountains stretching as high as 1,800m to 2,800m above sea level. It secretes an essential oil that has a powerful ability to kill bacteria. Works well for acne, pimple, nappy rash, bed sore, erythema, sebum secretion, itchy scalp, skin inflammation, allergic skin and athlete’s foot; also kills bacteria, stops itchiness and heals wounds.

Personal views and experiences

The Yellow Cypress is actually a protected species in Taiwan, a life span that could reach 4000 years old, its longevity is due ist own ability to wart off insects and birds as it secretes essential oil mentioned above.

During the World War 2, the Japanese took golds and Cypress trees with them when they left. In Japan, Cypress trees are highly prized for its strong sturdy wood which were used to make houses. Cypresses were also used to make bath tubs, when hot waters are poured in, the tub will then secretes the essential oil which will benefits the skin.

This is one of the last soaps I tried due to the not so interesting smell. However my interest was piqued when and few of my organic shop dealers were selling it very well, too well until I ran out of order. My cousin sister uses it to control her face skin inflammation, she found the soap helps to calm her skin. My partner from Singapore always imagine the great tree Cypress as his support whenever he uses the soap.

Price: RM29.50
