I have received an email from Carol Goulding about her business making and selling beautiful soap in Wells-next-the-Sea, North Norfolk. The products are particularly relevant at the moment.
“We are Handmade Norfolk Soaps. All our soaps are antibacterial and antiseptic. We are working hard to help everyone stay safe at home, by stocking Norfolk pharmacists and selling our products online, so they can be delivered to your door.
Our family business that has been making natural soaps in North Norfolk for over 20 years. We use natural essential oils that come straight from the plant, such as Tea Tree. Our main ingredients are coconut oil and local Norfolk rapeseed oil, this will help to moisturise the skin, while disinfecting them. This will prevent dry splitting skin and red sore hands from regular washing.
Why does soap work so well on the Sars-CoV-2, the corona virus and indeed most viruses?
The virus is a self-assembled nano particle in which the weakest link is the lipid (fatty) bi-layer. Soap dissolves the fat membrane on the outside and the virus falls apart and becomes inactive.
Cleaning your hands frequently throughout the day, will help protect you and the people you live with. We recommend rinsing hands with hot water and rubbing our soap into a lather. Scrub in between fingers, on the palm and around finger nails, where dirt is most likely to collect, and rinse again. Every hand wash should last about 30 seconds, for a thorough wash.
Be kind to you and your environment. We don’t use palm oil, preservatives or artificial scents. Our soaps are completely vegan, 100% biodegradable and all our packaging is plastic free. Many people are using liquid antibacterial hand soaps that are alcohol based and come in plastic containers, we are offering a plastic free and natural alternative. Still caring for our environment as well as ourselves.
Thank you very much, take care, wash your hands and stay safe.”
