Chases away Acne
Tlotsa soap has aloe vera and moringa.
Aloe vera has antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties.
Moringa has wound healing, anti-inflammatory, skin-revitalizing and anti-ageing properties
Using the soap will protect your skin from bacteria and other pathogens that may cause infection and inflammation.
That’s not all:
Aloe vera in the Tlotsa soap can work as an astringent – by reducing your skin pore size making your skin less oily (reduces sebum production).
If you have oily skin, you know too much sebum is a real pain.
Oily skin can affect your self-esteem and body image hastily.
When your sebaceous glands work overtime, they make your skin oily. Too much sebum produces surface oiliness, blocks pores and makes a good environment for bacteria to thrive. And all of this contribute to acne flare-ups.
So the moringa and aloe vera in the Tlotsa soap reduces the secretion of sebum, fights bacteria, purify your skin by filtering out impurities deeply rooted within the skin.
Tlotsa soap has an amazing detoxifying and rejuvenating properties that enhance natural skin colour and tone
