Shiro Soap

by Sort of Coal

Ingredients

Pure Char Essence (Oak Wood Vinegar)

Elaesis Guineensis Oil / Cocos Nucifera Oil

Aqua / Sodium Hydroxide / Potassium Hydroxide

Size: 85 x 55 x 25mm

An invigorating white soap with pure Char Essence for your face and body; especially suited for normal and dry skin types, yet gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin.

Char Essence is a natural byproduct from the traditional production of White Charcoal and long cherished in Japan for its purifying and PH balancing effect on the skin, as well as for its delicious woody and smoky scent.

SHIRO SOAP is handmade in Denmark, using only natural oils free from any harmful substances. And because we find that waste is such a waste, we also spent a great deal of effort on the packaging design. We hope you will find plenty more use for this fine little cardboard box.

Created by Sort of Coal

Our White Charcoal is produced using the same methods and processes that have been used for centuries. In this ancient Japanese method, pieces of wood are baked in hand-built clay kilns, – low temperatures at first and then at extremely high temperatures with restricted oxygen. This allows carbon to be captured in the wood, a process called pyrolysis. Perfecting the difficult ritual of burning requires patience and dedication and the people who produce White Charcoal are artisans and often have a family history of being charcoal makers. Although many Asian countries produce Binchotan, Kishu Binchotan is superior due to the potent combination of the best quality Japanese Oak and the traditional unique craftsmanship.
