I was recently asked if I stocked turmeric soap.

Turmeric is high in antioxidants that slow down cell damage and is traditionally used in India as an antiseptic. It’s widely used as a skin exfoliant and it’s said to improve your skin's complexion, texture and health. In many Asian countries, it is used by women for skin care, particularly to discourage facial and body hair. It is also used to help with inflammatory skin conditions, such as acne, dry skin, psoriasis and eczema. What a powerful little spice!

A couple notes of caution when using turmeric: Avoid turmeric use during pregnancy; if using turmeric powder in soaps, be warned that it will stain fabrics when used in liberal amounts.
