Question: Wait, what? Aren’t you supposed to EAT oatmeal?

Of course one can eat oatmeal, not only does it fill you up (especially on those cold winter mornings), but it has great health benefits as well! But, did you know it is also good for your skin?

Yes, that’s right! Oatmeal is good for your skin!

  • Anti-inflammatory: Oatmeal can be used topically on the skin to reduce redness and to alleviate the annoying itch of dry skin, eczema, or chicken pox.
  • Soothes irritations: Topical application of oatmeal to the skin can help soothe poison ivy and other rashes.
  • Helps prevent moisture loss which can lead to dry skin: Oatmeal creates a protective barrier on your skin to help it stay moisturized.
  • Exfoliates: Oatmeal is a mild exfoliant. Using soap with oatmeal helps your skin be the cleanest it can be while it gently works away dead, dry skin and dirt. Exfoliated skin is healthier skin!

Selkie Sensuals’ Simply Selkie bar is simply perfect! Tons of oatmeal, ground very fine, helps your skin feel smooth, moisturized and healthier! This soap was specifically formulated to be gentle for all skins types, for everyday use, even on the face! It is available at Boo’s Gift Shop in Virginia Beach, VA and soon on the about-to-be-launched new and improved http://www.selkiesensuals.com!

Oatmeal is also used in our brand new soap (currently available exclusively at Boo’s gift Shop in Virginia Beach, VA), Celtic Islands. A large bar with a clean, fresh scent, reminiscent of Scottish breezes blowing over fields of lavender and heather. It is coloured naturally with spirulina for a tint of green! If you don’t live near Virginia Beach, don’t despair, this soap will soon be offered online as well!

Until next time, stay Sensual!

Question: What is SLS/SLES and why don’t you put these in your products?

Both Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and its close relative Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) are used in soaps, shampoos, detergents, toothpastes and other products to create lather or foaming action.

SLS and SLES are esters of Sulphuric acid - SLS is also known as “Sulfuric Acid Monododecyl Ester Sodium Salt” and  SLES is commonly contaminated with dioxane, which is a known carcinogen.

SLES is less irritating than SLS, however, it cannot be metabolised by the liver. Therefore, its effects may be longer-lasting.

SLS dissolves the natural oils on your skin and can cause drying and since it is absorbed into the body through the skin, it could have some very negative effects such as menstrual problems, a drop in male fertility and contribute to female cancers. SLS is a skin and eye irritant and maintains residual levels in our organs, including the heart, liver, lungs and brain…all from contact with our skin.

SLS has been shown to cause acute corneal damage in animals, imagine what it could do to your eyes, or your child’s eyes. I know there are times I am washing my face and I get soap in my eyes. Furthermore, if SLS or SLES is in your soap, it is absorbing into your skin every time you bathe!

Selkie Sensuals makes NATURAL bath and body products…I think it is obvious why we don’t use these chemicals in the production of them. We use our products, in our home, daily. We don’t want SLS on your skin OR on ours!

Rest assured, Selkie Sensuals will NOT put SLS or SLES in our products. Ever.

Until next time, stay Sensual,

Serenity

Question: How did you come up with the name “Selkie Sensuals”?

It all started when I was born on a Monday morning in July. I was born under the zodiac sign of Cancer, a water sign. Though I admit I am not much of a swimmer, I do so love the water. With that love of water came a love of water creatures, including mermaids, sirens, and selkies as well as those we often see like dolphins, sea stars, etc.

So, I am discussing business names with my husband (who just happens to have a great nose for scent blends!) and we thought something revolving around water would be perfect, since most people use water when they bathe. (grin) The second thing we wanted to convey is that when one is clean and feels good and rejuvenated, one also can feel sexier. We think that women often get caught up in the rat race that is everyday life and forget to take time for themselves, forget that they can be sexy and sensual. The name Selkie Sensuals nearly popped into both of our heads at the same time and we didn’t even throw any other ideas around, it was perfect.

The whole idea behind our product line was to create products that help a woman tap into her inner Goddess, to feel the sensual side of herself and not feel ashamed or shy about it, but to just go with it. At the same time, our products can be used daily, not just the night of that hot date. They are gentle on the skin and full of nourishing butters, oils, and waxes.
