The high content of vitamins A and E are said to be helpful for skin problems such as eczema and psoriasis. Avocado oil is also high in unsaponifiables, which adds emollience and skin nourishing properties to the final soap product. (Unsaponifiables are components in soap making oils that do not react with the lye/sodium hydroxide and therefore remain in their original state, i.e. still oil, not turned into soap).
Beeswax Cera Alba (Beeswax) The only animal product used by Bunny's Bath. No synthetic products have been developed that have all the beneficial properties of Beeswax. It forms a protective barrier on the skin to lock in moisture, it will not become rancid, and it has germ-killing properties. Beeswax is used with oils to thicken balms and massage lotions.

In addition to being used as laundry booster, it is also used in many body care products. It is an emulsifier found in many creams and lotions, and Bunny's Bath uses it in liquid soap. Bar soap is made with excess oil, but liquid soap would be cloudy with excess oil and therefore is made with a little excess lye. Borax is used to neutralize the excess lye, and for the liquid castile soap it has the added benefit of thickening the liquid soap.

Castor Oil Ricinus Communis (Castor) Oil Soothing and lubricating oil that is rich in fatty acids and acts as a humectant by attracting moisture to the skin. Castor oil is a wonderful oil for providing conditioning and moisturizing properties to soap, and Bunny uses it to 'superfat' soaps. (Superfatting is the addition of extra oils that remain unsaponified and therefore add extra moisturizing properties to the soap.)
Centella Asiatica Extract Glycerin (and) Water (and) Hydrocotyl (Centella Asiatica) Extract An extract of a perennial creeping plant known as Gotu Kola or Indian Pennywort. Studies have shown that the main constituents of this ingredient increase collagen synthesis and improve the tensile strength of skin.

It adds firmness to lip balms and lotion bars, and it adds hardness and good lathering to soap.
Coconut Oil Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil A main ingredient in most soaps and a solid at room temperature, coconut oil provides rich later and moisturizing properties. However, too much can be drying, so Bunny is careful to hold the level of coconut oil in soap to less than 30%.
Coconut Oil, Fractionated Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride Specific short chain fatty acids (medium chain triglycerides) are separated from coconut oil to create a light textured liquid oil that reduces the greasy feel in lotions and increases the skin absorption rate. Fractionated coconut oil is an excellent vegetable alternative to mineral oil.
Coconut Oil, Virgin Cocos Nucifera (Virgin Coconut) Oil A very light and penetrating oil that is cold-processed from fresh coconut milk. The cold processing conserves all the functional components of coconut oil and maintains the original fresh coconut smell. Virgin coconut oil is non-greasy, high in Vitamin E, and highly valued for its skin-conditioning properties.
Coenzyme Q10 Ubiquinone A fat-soluble substance that is found in every cell of the human body. It is necessary for the action of enzymes, and the body's levels gradually decline after age 20. CoQ10 a powerful antioxidant that combats damage from free radicals that contribute to aging.
Conditioning Emulsifier Behentrimonium Methosulfate (and) Cetearyl Alcohol A mild emulsifying wax used to bind oils and water in lotions and creams. It is made from natural oil from the plant Colza, and it is also an excellent conditioning agent.

Emulsifying Wax Emulsifying Wax NF Creams and lotions are mixtures of oil and water, and emulsifying wax is the ingredient that keeps the oil and water from separating. It is made from vegetable source fatty alcohols, and because it is manufactured it is not considered an all-natural ingredient. Emulsifying wax is a ubiquitous and essential ingredient in lotions and creams, and NF stands for National Formulary approved. Although it is not an all-natural additive, it is non-irritating and non-toxic, and sensitivities have rarely been reported.
Evening Primrose Oil Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil Used by native Americans for its healing properties long before Europeans came, and used medicinally in Europe since the 1600's. Evening primrose oil has a high content of omega-6 essential fatty acids, especially gamma-linolenic acids (present at 9%). These promote healthy skin growth and add anti-oxidant and emollience. Evening primrose oil reportedly helps maintain skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Eyeseryl® Solution B Water (and) Acetyl Tetrapeptide-5 An ingredient that is added to our Milin Eye Cream to help reduce puffiness.

It is soothing and leaves skin feel smooth and silky. 20% of the product produced in cold-processed soap is glycerin, which is often removed from commercial soap. Reportedly, some commercial soaps replace the removed glycerin with cream, which is why the soap feels 'mushy' at the end of the bar.

Zinc Oxide Zinc Oxide A fine powder that provides a physical barrier that is 28 times the skin's natural protections against harmful UVA & UVB rays. Because it is inorganic and inert it is non-irritating and safe for sensitive skin. The Zinc Oxide that Bunny’s Bath uses is a very small micro-particle form so it is transparent in products and does not leave a white color on the skin. Although the particles are small enough to be non-whitening in products they are not so small that they are in the nanoparticle range. We avoid using nanoparticles because of health risk concerns that have been raised if the very small particles were to enter the human body. Zinc oxide is also a perfect ingredient for natural deodorant. It reacts with short fatty acids responsible for underarm odor and converts them to odorless zinc salts. It is more effective than the traditional Aluminum Chlorhydrate at inhibiting odor producing bacteria growth in sweat.
