Where can I find SABON stores?
What is the body butter and how do you store it?
Our Body Butter is a highly moisturizing bar made of Shea butter, cocoa butter, and beeswax. Natural plant extracts are used to scent the product. Due to the natural ingredients, the product tends to melt slightly during warmer months, so it is helpful to store the product in a cool place.
What is the difference between the Body Butter and the Butter Cream?
Our Body Butter is our most moisturizing product. Based on Shea butter, cocoa butter and beeswax, this product may be used as a spot treatment to soothe severely chapped and dry skin. The butter cream, on the other hand, is intended for use over the entire body. This too is based on Shea butter, but contains skin moisturizing ingredients like glycerin and olive oil.
What are the differences between your scrubs?
We have two types of scrubs, with different levels of exfoliation, cleansing, and moisturizing.
The Body Scrub is made from Dead Sea salts, a mix of natural oils and fragrance. This scrub reveals a newer, softer skin through intense exfoliation.
Our Shower Scrub is the mildest of them. Sugar exfoliates your skin and natural oils deliver moisture for all skin types.
Can I use any of the soaps on my face?
Yes. Our Olive Oil Honey Vanilla Wheat and Olive Oil Mud soaps are excellent for delicately exfoliating, moisturizing, and, of course, cleansing the skin.
What is beneficial about the Dead Sea?
The Dead Sea is known for its unique mineral wealth, which can ease and heal numerous ailments, such as respiratory and skin related diseases. Additionally it has been proven to relieve rheumatism, relax the muscles, and deliver to the skin essential minerals that improve moisture and elasticity.
Why are some products packaged in glass?
Any product that is packaged in glass is likely to be better preserved in its original form than any other kind of packaging. Also, glass is made of less processed ingredients than plastic, making it easier to be recycled. Sabon is going green day by day, so we try to use as many recyclable products as possible.
What are parabens and which Sabon products are paraben-free?
Parabens are a group of chemicals widely used as a preservative in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. They safely fight off bacteria and fungi and can be found in many cosmetics and products we use daily (like toothpaste, shampoo, and lotions). Their history of safe use explains why parabens are so commonplace. Current studies have investigated possible side-effects of products containing parabens, so, to keep you informed, here is a list of paraben-free products:
- sorbet body gels
- body lotions
- hand creams
- foot cream
- body butters
- body oils
- body dews
- mineral powders
- shower oils
- foamy body gels
- bath foams
- milky soaps
- liquid hand soaps
- solid soaps
- scrubs, except the creamy ones
- hair care products
- organic producs
Why are synthetic chemicals used in your products?
Many ingredients are used to preserve the contents; without these chemical preservatives, the products would not last more than several days. The only instance when a synthetic material is acceptable is when there is no viable natural alternative and it has absolutely no negative effects — on you or the environment. The term "fragrance" on our labels may indicate the use of natural fragrance (essential oils), synthetic fragrance or a combination of both. Sabon makes every attempt to use blends of natural oils in formulating our fragrances. However, on certain occasions, it may be necessary the use of synthetic ingredients in our fragrances, in order to sufficiently mix the fragrance with the product formula base, and to keep the product stable.
