Mafura Butter Head to Toe Bath Bars
New rustic look & size. Mafura soaps are now 6 oz tall bars. I decided to leave the herbs in versus straining them. It has more of an impact on how our soaps perform.
Mafura butter leaves the hair bouncy and shiny. Also, Mafura Butter absorbs well into the skin is said to have antimicrobial/anti-inflammatory properties, and is excellent in wound repair.
The purpose of making Mafura Butter Bath Bar is to help with our skin problems at home enduring eczema. At home, our eczema flares up in the bitter cold or on the hottest days, so this bar became a great go-to bar to use on the hair and skin at the same time. It is a nourishing bar. This bar doesn't dry out the skin, it's soft in a lather, and it doesn't strip your hair. We love it. Mafura Butter Soap Bar is to be used for all skin types. Its main purpose is to be used on sensitive-prone skin, eczema skin, acne, dry skin, everyday hair shampoo, or just have a wonderful nourishing bath bar.
Ingredients: Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, Butyrospermum parkii (Shea) Butter, Ricinus communis (castor) oil, Annona muricata (Soursop) oil, Theobroma cacao (cocoa) butter, Trichilia emetica (Mafura) Seed Butter, Marshmallow Root, Slippery Elm, Burdock Root, Comfrey, Virola Sebifera Nut (Ucuuba) Butter, Astrocaryum Murumuru Seed Butter, Avena sativa (Oat), Irish Moss, Sodium hydroxide, Distilled Water, Montmorillonite (French Yellow Clay). Unscented
MY EXPERIENCE: I've now made Mafura Butter Soap many times since introducing it, and I love this soap. I added French yellow clay, which has the ability to quickly pull toxins from the surface layers of the skin, leaving it toned and soft. It will gently stimulate blood circulation, cleansing it from within.
FOR ECZEMA: Clean your skin with "lukewarm water" as you would do with your usual bath bar. Rinse well. DO NOT stay in the shower any longer than you have to. WASH AND RINSE. DO NOT remove all the water from your skin, take your moisturizer while the skin is slightly damp, and apply an oil-based moisturizer and let the moisturizer soak into the skin to keep the moisture. *Recommend using one of RaeMarie Essentials moisturizers for eczema.
*After use place the soap on a soap saver.
DIRECTION USING AS YOUR SHAMPOO BAR: Saturate your hair completely under running water. Rub the bar in circular motions all over the scalp area. Massage the scalp as the soap will lather, and if you like, run your fingers through the hair, rubbing the bar gently and washing the strands of the hair. Massage thoroughly and rinse. Repeating if needed. Use a conditioner after use. If your hair feels de-tangled after, still use a Conditioner for your hair. Repeat if needed.
TRANSITIONING TO SHAMPOO BARS: When using shampoo bars please bear with the fact, if you haven't used it before, use a vinegar rinse before you wash with it, because the usual product used on your hair may be insoluble to a natural product, so it takes time for results, especially during transition. If your hair is not natural, meaning using relaxers, hair dyes, and commercial store-bought products (which is nothing wrong with that, but it can compromise the nature of using natural soaps making your hair feel tangled. My Solution: If you can't use vinegar, It will do well to do a hot oil treatment or use a conditioner on your hair first before you cleanse your hair to help the hair to process more smoothly until it's used to using a natural product. Use a conditioner after as well, then a leave-in.
HARD WATER NOTE:
Shampoo Bars generally don’t do well in hard water, so if you have hard water, you’ll definitely want to use baking soda. In using hard water, I read it has metal ions, and this will leave your hair feeling dull and dry if you do not do this step. Also, I find that if you Google hard water maps for your area you can see what kind of water you have.
Use 1 tsp of baking soda with the shampoo bar while wet to cleanse the hair thoroughly to get rid of build-up (do this especially if you have hard water).
MY RESULTS: My hair is natural. I didn't need to use baking soda to amp up the bubbles/ to soften water, or vinegar rinse to soften my hair. My hair type is 3b-3c, and since I'm a little older I may be lacking texture, so I think I may have 3d too. Overall, I don't use a lot of hair products, so I didn't need to use any additional products to help. My hair came out really soft/bouncy. Let me know how it turns out for you.
