kills acne bacteria

Batty’s Bath Patchouli & Grapefruit Facial Soap is literally two soaps in one! The patchouli side is used during a flare up of skin problems to helps calm break outs, while the grapefruit side purifies congested, oily and acne prone skin to reduce future breakouts!

This facial soap is packed with skin loving olive oil, which provides excellent moisturizing benefits. This soap is primarily made out of a vegetable glycerin. This glycerin draws moisture out of the air to benefit skin health and cleanses without stripping or upsetting the delicate natural pH balance necessary for soft, heavy skin.

How to use our Patchouli & Grapefruit Facial Soap…

This soap bar does the work of two different soap bars:

  • The patchouli side is used during a flare up of skin problems to helps calm break outs, while the grapefruit side purifies congested, oily and acne prone skin to reduce future breakouts!
  • The side of the soap made with patchouli essential oil has finely ground nut shells added for deep cleaning exfoliation.
  • The side of the soap made with grapefruit essential oil has 100% natural wax jojoba beads added for excellent moisturizing benefits as well as extremely mild exfoliation.

Brooke sent us this review of our Patchouli & Grapefruit Facial Soap:

After using the Charcoal soap for a month, I started using this little wonder bar and started seeing great results!! My CONSTANT breakouts have almost ceased entirely.  I use this with the Patchouli Facial Moisturizer and now the Redness Relief gel, and this team seems to be healing my skin wonderfully!

Thanks for a great review Brooke!

In a nutshell:

  • Absorbs deep into pores to draw out dirt & oil
  • Frees up congested pores
  • Helps eliminate acne, blackheads and bumps
  • Great for both face and body
  • Reduces pigmentation
  • Won’t dry out skin
  • Helps fight odour
  • Softens and conditions your skin
  • As always… mild and gentle on your skin
  • This bar is unscented

Seeking a little balance in your life… and your skin? Our Black Charcoal Cold Press Soap is the perfect kick start to a fresh new you. You’re in good hands with this soap. Unlike traditional soaps that slowly pulls dirt from the surface, Batty’s Bath Charcoal Soap fights its way past pore congestion and pushes grime and build up from the inside, leaving nothing but healthy, clean skin… and eventually toxin free. All that’s left is soft, conditioned skin that’s found its harmony.

Why active charcoal?

Charcoal has so many benefits including it’s ability to absorb into the pores on your skin and draw out the dirt and oils that are blocking the pores!

Using our charcoal bar consistently on your face can reduce or eliminate acne, bumps and blackheads (when combined with our facial scrub and patchouli facial moisturizer)! Our charcoal soap is also a great body bar for an all over skin detox, as well as a wonderful soap for your hands as charcoal soap can help reduce pigmentation and make your hands look younger.

If that wasn’t enough to have you grabbing up all the charcoal soap I’ve made, here’s a few more benefits: charcoal soap won’t dry out your skin, helps to fight odors (hello arm pits!), and my charcoal soap has shea butter added to soften & condition your skin! It’s also a big 5.5 oz bar that will last and last as cold press soap is harder than any glycerin soap bars!

Lastly, this soap is made with my “hard bar” formula, just like all the soaps in the signature collection. Soaps made with this formula are not only super mild, but they last a really long time!

Radiant Rebel Chrissy sent us this wonderful review of our Charcoal Cold Pressed Soap.

I know this soap is going to get my face clean of whatever gets on it throughout the day! It is not drying and I believe this has helped even out my skin and help it stay normal, balanced, and healthy. My skin used to be super oily until I started using more natural and gentle products. If you are looking for a simple soap that will clean and detox your skin each day, give this a try! I cut my bar in half and each half will last a couple months at least if only used on your face.


2015 Batty

We’ve shaken things up this year again to keep it interesting and to give everyone a chance to get their submissions in.

As you may or may not know, every October we let you choose a charity in which $1 from every soap sold from Nov. 1 – Dec. 1 (when the online shop closes for holidays) is donated to that charity. In order to pick the charity that will benefit from the Soap Drive, we love to have a little friendly competition.

Last year Holly’s Hope Cat Rescue received $493 from the Soap Drive! This year we’re hoping to see that number grow even more!

Here’s how you can get involved…

Rule for submitting a charity:

  1. All charities must be LOCAL (ie. Operating and helps causes within Ontario). For example: The Humane Society is an international charity with many chapters. Please specify which local chapter you are referring to (eg: K-W Humane Society).
  2. Charities must be a REGISTERED charity. If you’re not sure whether the charity you’re wanting to submit is registered or not, find out here:
  3. Multiple submissions for the same charity will only count once. Once your charity has been submitted in the comment section, please refrain from duplicating.
  4. You do not need to be an Ontario resident to submit your charity, but remember your charity must be!
  5. Only those charities included in the comments below the original Facebook post will be counted as submissions.

How to submit a Charity:

Once you’ve picked a charity you would like to submit for consideration, post a 30 second video clip in the comment section of the Facebook post that includes the following:

  • Name of your charity (be sure to also name the chapter if applicable)

– Where they are located
– Whom/what they support
– Why you think they deserve to be chosen

Keep it simple, or be creative. The rest is up to you! Once your video has been posted to the comment section of the Facebook post, your voting can begin immediately. That means the sooner you post the video, the more time you have to spread the word and get votes!

Pleases note: NEGATIVITY will not be accepted. Any comment/submitted videos with a negative connotation will be removed at the discretion of Batty’s Bath. Remember this is meant to be fun and an opportunity to give back.

How to vote:

Voting is easy! Simple “LIKE” the video of the charity that you would like to see win in the comments section below the Facebook post. Don’t forget to share the Facebook post as well to spread the word! The more you share, the better the chances are that your favourite charity could win, so get active.

Voting will begin October 1st, 2015 and run until Midnight (EST), October 31st, 2015 (Halloween).

Winning charity will be the video that receives the most Facebook votes. They will be announced Nov. 1, 2015 via the Batty’s Bath Facebook Page.

Good luck to all the charities submitted!

Love from Batty
