Edlyn Bi-Carb Soda 2 Kg
Here are just a few of the things that I use it for:
It is in our toothpaste recipe where it helps to de-odourise the mouth and banish bugs.
To adjust pH upwards (make things more alkali) and make them more skin friendly – things like our soap nut cleanser which has a low pH of around 4 which can sting eyes.
To remove the smell from fusty old shoes.
As a deodorant active in our natural under-arm recipe
As a softener for water – having a bath in a bicarb solution makes skin feel soft and lovely
Although bicarbonate of soda is a naturally occurring mineral the stuff used in cosmetics is manufactured using an industrial process so it is classified as ‘nature identical’ rather than natural.
