Our skin is constantly bombarded by harsh cleansers, deodorants, cosmetics, medications, home detergents, washing powders, and gardening chemicals. Our NEW No Soap Manuka Hand & Body Bar has been carefully formulated to protect your skin microbiome, without harshly stripping it of all your natural microbiota.

What is a Skin Microbiome?
Skin microbiome is currently very topical. We hear so much about gut microbiome, which is basically the entire collection of microorganisms in our gut. The skin microbiome is simply all of the organisms present on our skin. The term “microbiota” describes these organisms in both our gut and our skin.
Antibacterial, chemical-based hand sanitisers present problems for our skin. After cleansing your hands, do you put them in your mouth? It’s interesting how we often put our hands in our mouths; when we do, we often affect the microbiota negatively in our gut. Many common skin problems, from acne to eczema affect the skin microbiome and can be attributed to our new modern lifestyle.
Protect Your Skin Microbiome
It’s simple – our skin has over a trillion organisms on it at any given time. It’s home to thousands of species of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. These all serve a purpose and are vital for proper balance. When the skin microbiome goes off balance, problems can arise.
At Au Natural Skinfood we know that prebiotics are found in Manuka Honey. These prebiotics encourage the growth of good bacteria on our skin and help to manage bad bacteria. Antibacterial NZ Manuka honey is also known as a natural humectant, trapping in moisture, and helping to eliminate transdermal water loss. What’s more, NZ Manuka honey has many healing properties.
Au’s No Soap Hand & Body Bars
With this knowledge, our team at Au Natural decided to use this key ingredient in concentrated levels in our NEW No Soap Manuka Hand & Body Bar.
Our products strengthen skin barrier function, allowing it’s natural defense system to fight environmental damage and common skin complaints. No Soap Manuka & Body Bars were designed with this philosophy, and they suit all skin types and ages.
Just like all of our products, our body bars are vegetarian friendly. They only include the ingredients your body needs, and nothing that it doesn’t. This allows you to nourish your body and the environment the same time.
With its use of antibacterial Manuka oil, there is no need for harsh chemicals or soaps. What’s even better is that our No Soap bar also uses substantially less water during manufacturing and production.
Hair.Skin.Nails Collagen Powder
If you are feeling like your skin is compromised, you can also give your skin some love from within. Au Natural Skinfood’s Hair.Skin.Nails. Marine Collagen Powder, with Manuka honey and New Zealand grapeseed extract, balances your gut microbiome and builds collagen in your skin.
I love using soap berries for my washing! I take a handful and put them in a recycled jam jar, then cover it with boiling water. A jelly forms on the top and I use this for stain removal. After using your soap berries, you can put the shells on your pot plants to protect them and hold in moisture – plus, they look great, and our clothes have never been so clean. It’s great for our skin AND great for the planet!
