The oil mix which consists of castor, olive, coconut and palm oil, comes with other benefits too. Coconut oil has been used for ages as it an amazing moisturiser which nourishes the skin, giving you a radiant glow. The oil mix provides you with vitamins and antioxidants to soothe and revitalize your skin.

Milk is a famous skin moisturizer. It also looks so beautiful and serene, so today we will be making a Pure Full Cream soap using Nestle’s brand: Just Milk.
