Soap actually contains more active cleaning ingredients than many elegant hand-washes. It has the added bonus of usually not being in plastic packaging so it’s just that little bit more green too. So good for keeping clean, good for our world, but what about if it has a soothing quality too? Well, Tisserand has just the thing, a soap with Tea tree and Aloe Vera.
