How to Use Argan Oil for Hair Care

Argan oil has many great uses for hair and scalp care and treatment. Being naturally high in Vitamin E, medium chain fatty acids, and antioxidants, it can be used to prevent hair loss, promote hair growth and achieve healthy scalp. It can also prevent your hair from breakage from combing and from drying and fizziness, and reduce sebum over-production of oily scalp or address dandruff problems and seborrheic dermatitis on scalp.

  • as a hair conditioner – After washing your hair with shampoo bar, towel-dry your hair to make sure your hair is not dripping wet.  Skip the conditioner and rub 3-4 drops (or more depending on hair length) of Argan oil as a leave-in conditioner once or twice a week.

  • as a styling oil – apply a few drops onto clean, dry hair without massaging it into the scalp. Style it however you like!

  • as a hair mask – add 8-10 drops to your palm and apply to hair, adjusting the amount used according to your hair length. Massage your hair and scalp with the Argan Oil for about 10 minutes, ensuring your hair is covered from roots to ends. Wrap your hair in a towel or shower cap and leave it on overnight. Wash your hair in the morning and style as usual.


DON’t be fooled by fake or diluted argan oil

Don’t be fooled – there are lots of fake argan oil being sold in the market! Real argan oil that’s pure is very hard to produce. It takes 88 pounds(about 40kg) of argan fruit to make just one liter of argan oil!!

If you find a cheap one, it is unlikely to be pure, and contain fragrances, parfum, mixtures of other oils or even diluted with water!

Skincare for Babies and Sensitive Skin

Irritated or Sensitive Skin?

Did you know our skin is the largest organ of our body, and irritation of the skin can occur due to what our skin is exposed to? Weather elements such as harsh winds, sun, bitter winters and even dust and polluted air can cause our skin to itch or breakout in rash.

Skincare Tips for Babies and Super-Sensitive Skin

Here are some tips for your babies and children and anyone with super-sensitive skin:

1) Always READ INGREDIENT LIST on any cleanser, soap, skincare to know what goes onto your baby or child’s skin regardless of what it says in front! Almost every label that markets themselves as “Organic” or “Natural” only contain 1 or a few such ingredients in minimal quantity followed by a long list of synthetic chemicals some of which your baby or child might react to. The way to understand an ingredient list is that the first mentioned ingredient has the largest amount.

The Soap Haven | Fragrance Free

2) Switch to using mild natural soaps that are FRAGRANCE-FREE and even those that contain only CERTIFIED ORGANIC ingredients .

Organic Shea Oatmeal Honey soap (containing certified organic ingredients only) as well as Castile Olive Oil Goat Milk soap (containing only 2 simple ingredients – Olive Oil & Goat Milk) comes highly recommended!

3) MOISTURISE– As the skin immunity of babies and children are less developed compared to that of adults, always moisturise after showering. Our Premium Natural Daily Moisturising Cream loaded with various non-GMO oils containing Lactobacillus and other natural preservatives can help build up your child’s skin immunity by introducing good bacteria to combat harmful bacteria on his/her skin.

Our Premium Unscented Body Balm gives extra protection to your child’s skin on the go! Simply apply it to any dry or irritated areas of skin to protect it from dust, dirt, sweat and bacteria and promote skin healing.

Sunflower Oil Benefits for Skin

Sunflower Oil Benefits for Skin - The Soap Haven

​3 Best Benefits of Sunflower Oil for Skin

​1. Anti-aging and Prevents Sun Damage

​Sunflower oil contains anti-oxidants like Vitamin E that help fight free radicals caused by UV rays. Free radicals are the cause of premature wrinkles and fine lines and hence preventing sun damage to the skin. Sunflower oil helps you to maintain youthful looking skin!  Being rich in vitamin E ​means your skin can regenerate from the damage from the sun, as well as from ​aging.

It also contains Vitamin C which plays a vital part for the production of collagen and giving you ​healthy, smooth and supple skin. Vitamin K found in sunflower oil also helps elastin in our skin from hardening and therefore an important component to prevent wrinkles.  

​It also means it will help reduce scarring and also heal wounds faster. 

2. Great Moisturizing Agent and Treats Dry Skin

With all the essential vitamins and fatty acids, ​sunflower oil is a natural emollient and helps to moisturize dry and dehydrated skin.

3. Treats Common Skin ​Problems like Dermatitis,  Eczema and Acne

​Sunflower oil contains essential fatty acids like Omega 3, 6 and 9 which have anti-inflammatory properties commonly helping with skin infections and problems like eczema or dermatitis and even fungal infections and acne.

​The fatty acids also help to improve skin barrier and protection against infections.

Being non-comedogenic (i.e. doesn’t clog pores) and non-irritant, it works well on acne skin and moisturises without suffocating your pores. ​

​Many of The Soap Haven Skincare Products Contain Organic GMO-free Sunflower Oil as one of its base ingredients:

1) Organic GMO-free Soap Bars – Our Organic Luxe Range and one of our best-sellers Unscented “Organic Shea Oatmeal Honey” (great for Eczema and psoriasis, dry and sensitive skin) are handmade with the main ingredient of organic GMO-free sunflower oil. Our soap bars are COLD PRESSED and therefore none of the goodness of the natural ingredients have been destroyed compared to heat treated or mix and pour soaps!

2) Body Balms (aka. lotion bars) which comes in 3 different scents, are deeply moisturising with extra barrier protection for the skin and promote natural healing.

Debunking the myths concerning soaps

Debunking the myth that “soaps are drying”! The difference between good and bad soaps!

Karen Gan, a former lawyer and former director of a charity, the co-founder of The Soap Haven, who was healed from Eczema (contact dermatitis), only uses The Soap Haven’s products for her skincare needs. She believes in helping others heal naturally with their natural skincare products.  

Check out the exclusive interview by The New York Times Style Magazine Singapore, with Karen.

Read about their Journey.

Did you know?Glycerin is a natural by-product of the soap-making process and whilst commercial manufacturers remove the glycerin for use in their more profitable lotions and creams with lots of chemicals and parabens, our handcrafted soap retains glycerin in each and every bar!

Is There a Cure for Eczema?

<h1>Natural Treatment for Eczema</h1><p>Did you know more than 1 in 5 people have eczema in Singapore and also in USA?</p><div draggable=”false”>Since you’re on this section, you probably either suffer from eczema or know someone who does. Doctors and Dermatologists will tell you that there is no such thing as a medical eczema cure. When you visit a doctor or specialist you will realise that they have no answers and are usually unable to diagnose what the causes of Eczema/Contact Dermatitis are.</div><div> </div><div>The first common treatment they prescribe is a steroidal cream. They also typically resort to asking you to use Cetaphil, which contains 3 Parabens that are strongly linked to serious health problems such as developmental disorders, cancer and learning disabilities</div><div draggable=”false”>(source: United Nations Environment Programme and the World Health Organization, 2013, Summary Report (UNEP job number: DTI/1554/GE) is based on the main report “State of the Science of Endcorine Disrupting Chemicals – 2012” ISBN: 978-92-807-3274-0 (UNEP) and 978 92 4 150503 1 (WHO) (NLM classification: WK 102)).Thankfully we don’t have to rely on steroids or potentially toxic commercial cleansers that can do long term harm! For many people with eczema, psoriasis or rosacea, simply switching to an all-natural soap can do wonders.</div><div draggable=”false”> </div><div draggable=”false”><strong>In fact, some of our soap users experience an 80%-90% reduction in eczema within 1 to 6 weeks of switching to our soap, depending on the severity of the skin problems.</strong></div><div draggable=”false”> </div>

How to Treat Eczema Naturally

Steps you can take to prevent and treat eczema (as well as Atopic Dermatitis, Psoriasis and Rosacea):1) Do not use anti-bacterial cleansers on your baby. Let them develop a natural immune response. Furthermore, of the common ingredients uses in anti-bacterial cleansers is Triclosan. This is considered a dangerous toxin and banned in Europe, but still found in commercial anti-bacterial soaps in Singapore.

2) Avoid harsh anti-microbials such as Dettol – it’s meant to clean the floor and occasional use for cuts and wounds – NOT for constant use to treat eczema! 

3) Minimize regular and frequent steroid use. Once you develop steroidal dependency, stopping usually leads to eczema flare ups coming back far worse, leading to a vicious cycle of increased steroid dependency that can cause serious long term health problems. Steroids are only meant to reduce and suppress inflammation/infection. One should avoid long term usage of steroids as one of the known side effects is the thinning of the skin. What that means is that your skin becomes less and less able to fight bacteria due to its disappearing protective dermis!

4) Do not use harsh cleansers. Avoid any products that contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) or Cocamidopropyl Betaine(CMPB). These are all proven skin irritants. Unfortunately 99% of shampoos and body/hand washes use these harsh detergents as the primary ingredients because they are cheap and foam well.

5) Use a truly gentle all natural soap, NOT a chemical cleanser marketed as gentle (eg. Cetaphil, QV) as these all contain parabens, which are banned for use on young children in almost 30 countries. If you read the 2nd last paragraph in the article below, doctors recommend avoiding soaps, fragrances and harsh detergents. The reference to soap is because practically all commercial brand soaps now use SLS or SLES as the main cleansing ingredient. These cheap chemicals are proven skin irritants that are also used to degrease vehicle engines and floors! 

However truly natural cold processed soap does not contain any SLS or parabens or harsh chemicals. Commercial companies which churn out thousands of bottles a day would never manufacture such soap because it takes at least 2-3 weeks to cure each batch of natural soap.

6) Avoid anything with fragrance. 

In the commercial markets, anything with the word “fragrance” means you do not know what constitutes fragrance. And it can contain many different types of chemicals and parabens that can be potentially harmful to the body. When a list of ingredients is not disclosed individually, a manufacturer lists it as “fragrance”. Fragrance can be triggers in causing eczema flare ups.

7) Use an all natural moisturiser/balm that contain no parabens or chemicals. With damaged skin or the epidermal layers gone, the skin’s protection is also reduced. Moisturisers/balms keep the skin protected. However as most commercial moisturisers/lotions out there contain tonnes of chemicals and even petroleum by-products (which are harmful basically act as sealants on your skin, clogging your pores and prevents your skin from breathing through its pores). What most commercial companies have done is that they have extracted the glycerin(natural moisturiser) from the soap in the soap/cleanser making process and then manufacture and package it as a moisturiser/lotion for you!

    Nutrition for Your Skin

    <h1 style=”font-size: 31.467px; line-height: 43.499px;” data-fontsize=”34″ data-lineheight=”47″>Your Skin Needs Nutrition</h1><p>Did you know that your skin is the largest organ in your body and needs the right nutrition for it to be radiant and healthy? Did you know your skin absorbs 60% of what you put on it directly into your blood stream? And almost 80-100% absorption for areas like your underarms and genitalia area?Also “the stratum corneum of premature infants is less effective than that of full-term infants or adults.” (Barker et al., 1987; USEPA, 1992) Therefore infants are known to have “sensitive skin”as we commonly term it.”The skin barrier can be compromised in a wide variety of ways: physical damage (e.g. burned, shaved skin), chemical damage (e.g. detergents, solvents), occluded skin (e.g. wearing of gloves), increased hydration (e.g. excessive hand washing), and even psychological stress (USEPA, 1992; Choi et al., 2005). It has been shown that even slight damage  to the skin achieved by <strong>sodium lauryl sulfate</strong> may lead to increased percutaneous penetration of chemicals covering a wide range of solubilities (Nielsen, 2005).(WHO pg 115, 116, 117)</p><p>With eczema or dermatitis, one will have a broken or damaged skin barrier and therefore permeability and absorption of chemicals and sensitivity will also heightened.Nowadays, with all kinds of skincare in the commercial market, and with many as well with foreign language labels (eg. a deluge of Korean cosmetics and skincare products) many have no list of the ingredients used in the skincare on the labels even though it is required by HSA (Health Science Authorities).</p><p>However at The Soap Haven, we are honest and forthright about what is in our soaps, and skincare products, and we list out every ingredient on our labels and you know what ingredients you are “feeding your skin”!</p><h2>Feed Your Skin</h2><p>We have heard many who are at a loss with eczema simply just use water to shower! Please note that our water is not enough to moisturise and cleanse the skin! In fact, the reverse is true that using water only will dry out your skin further! Imagine just drinking water and not eating, it is humanly unthinkable, but yet we do that to our skin! </p><p>15 minutes after you shower, if the skin is not moisturised with plant oils, the surface of your skin will lose more moisture when the water on the surface of your skin evaporates, drawing with it more moisture from your stratum corneum and leaving your skin dryer than before you showered.</p><p>So remember to feed your skin with the right nutrients, not just wash your skin!</p><h2 style=”font-size: 27px; line-height: 40.5px;” data-fontsize=”28″ data-lineheight=”42″>Varying your soaps help your skin receive different nutrition for healthy skin</h2><p>As with food, one should eat a good range and variety of food in order to get the right amount and types of nutrition for a healthy body. So also with skincare, do feed your skin with different nutrition. Our skin can get “bored of eating and drinking” the same kinds of ingredients every single day! Which is why at The Soap Haven, we have a wide variety of soaps and skin care for healthy skin too!</p><p>If you have been a regular of The Soap Haven’s soaps, do try a variety of our natural soaps which are made with different natural ingredients, even though there is one which is your favourite or one which works well for your skin issues!

    Say No to Haze with Organic Sustainable Palm Oil!

    Say No to Haze!

    Haze in Singapore MBS 2016When you say YES to Non-GMO, Organic Palm Oil in our soaps, you are saying NO to the HAZE!

    Did you know that The Soap Haven’s soaps which contain palm oil are made using palm oil that are organic and sustainable?  It does not contribute to deforestation in tropical regions. As palm oil is necessary to make a harder, stable bar of soap that is preferred by most people, we are careful to only use sustainable organic palm oil in our soaps.

    Over the past years, “bio-diesel” (and the need for edible non-hydrogenated oils) has created a huge demand for palm oil. Palm oil is only harvested significantly in tropical rainforest regions like Indonesia and thus the problem. Demand for palm oil has led to more deforestation using burn and slash methods by farmers who want to make a quick buck. The results are catastrophic – destruction of natural habitats and tremendous pollution with HAZE in our air!!!

    Organic, non-GMO palm oil however is renewable and sustainable. While using sustainable palm oil is more costly, it helps fight against the “palm thirsty” industry which causes more deforestation and pollutes the land and our air!

    Join us in saying NO to HAZE in our region!
