To create a new kind of facial cleansing formula, EDOBIO is bringing together the brand’s proprietary plant-based BiProGE lactic acid bacteria and the purifying properties of charcoal powder.
If you have yet to experience the newest addition to our Floradiance Series, here is everything you need to know about this sophisticated soap product, and creating the ideal minimalist skincare routine.
The Future of Clean Beauty: All About EDOBIO Vegan Black Soap
For our eco-conscious and vegan consumers, EDOBIO was inspired to develop a product that not only provides a plant-based alternative to traditional cleansers, but also eliminates the need for unnecessary plastic packaging waste.
Created in a convenient cleansing bar format, Vegan Black Soap is made from 78.9% natural ingredients and formulated to address a number of common skin concerns: including acne, blackheads, congestion, excess oil, combination skin, and sensitive skin.
It is also uniquely mild and gentle, thanks to the inclusion of multiple moisturizing agents. Unlike other foaming facial washes that can compromise the skin’s natural moisture factor, the Vegan Black Soap bar infuses the skin with nourishment, even as it removes dirt, oil, pollution, and other impurities. As a result of cleansing with this special formula, the skin is left feeling refined and refreshed, rather than dry or tight.
The secret to the soap’s efficacy is in the incredible key ingredients which include:
- BiProGE Lactic Acid Bacteria - A favorite component of our Floradiance Series, lactic acid bacteria is co-cultured using yeast, creating an ultra-moisturizing and gently-exfoliating additive that smooths, softens, and hydrates the skin.
- Wood + Bamboo Charcoal Powders - In keeping with EDOBIO’s tradition of choosing popular beauty ingredients from the Edo period, charcoal is a valued material that has been used since ancient times. For this formula, a blend of wood and bamboo charcoal powders are utilized to ensure a smooth texture, as well as optimal absorption of impurities, dirt, oil, and odors.
- Squalane - Popular plant-derived squalane oil is highly effective for addressing oily skin as it works well to regulate and support balanced oil production. It also provides hydration and moisture without clogging pores.
- Camellia Sinensis - With antioxidant properties and anti-inflammatory benefits, camellia sinensis from green tea soothes and calms a stressed complexion, and provides protection against environmental stressors.
How to Create Your Own Daily Cleansing Routine With Vegan Black Soap
For best results and the perfect everyday beauty ritual here is what we recommend:
Step One: Add a few drops of water
Using less water will help to create a richer lather, so be sure to wet your bar of soap just slightly and begin working it to a foam.
Step Two: Apply cleansing foam using a light touch
Patting the dense soap foam gently onto the face, you can begin to massage the product in small circular motions for several minutes, being mindful not to tug or pull on the skin.
Step Three: Rinse thoroughly with cold or lukewarm water
Cool temperatures work best to prevent irritation and create a calm complexion. Using fresh water, remove any remaining soap residue from the face.
Step Four: Pat dry with gentle pressure
To finish, use a soft towel or cloth to dry the skin. Once any excess water is wiped away, you can finish with toner, serums, moisturizer, and SPF and enjoy your best fresh, clean complexion.
