We haven’t enjoyed a lot of sun this summer, and to compensate this, I decided to make for the month of June a yellow soap. I could have used calendula or dandelion flowers, curcuma/turmeric powder, carrot juice or sea-buckthorn oil, but goji was something I wanted to test a second time.
Coming from China, they are often said to be the most dense foods known, and this appears to be true. The list of nutrients, in high concentration is impressive: antioxidants; carotenoids such as beta-carotene, lutein, lycopene; vitamins C, B1, B2, more than 30 essential and trace minerals, including zinc, iron, copper, calcium, selenium, and phosphorus; and 18 amino acids such as isoleucine, tryptophan, leucine, and arginine.
Healthy enough to eat and to use it in a soap, isn’t it? Apart from dried goji berry (added in powder at trace) this soap contains: coconut oil, olive oil, palm oil, sesame oil, almond oil, ylang-ylang essential oil, litsée citronnée essential oil, clary sage essential oil and lemon essential oil and cornflowers.
