We don’t use any plant derived compounds or any synthetic chemicals. We use only cold pressed oils and butters in a natural form. So the products are not thinned or thickened using third party agents.
The product turns out the way nature intended. Thick oils will produce a thicker cream (ideal for winter / cold weather) and Light oils will produce a less Oily product.
The products are formulated to look after your skin the healthy way and very safe to use – as they only use the ingredients occurring in a natural form they are less likely to cause an adverse reaction and are suitable for sensitive skin.
What is Body and Zen's Mission?
Buiding a community of people who enjoy or seek balance of body and mind.
How does Body and Zen provide the products at the cheapest price wherever possible?
Skincare products are not very expensive to make – by the time Products reach the Consumer – they have already gone through the following chain:
Manufacturer – > Distributor –> Wholesaler –> Retailer -> Consumer
Every link in the chain adds a MARGIN to the product which in the end is paid by the Consumer.
Body and Zen cuts the LINK to provide the Cheapest Price wherever possible.
Skincare Products are often sold in fancy packaging such as exquisite bottles & labels. Many products are sold under Popular Brand Names who only provide a label while the actual product is made elsewhere to reduce costs.
Conclusion: The consumer ends up paying for brand & packaging and not the product.
Body and Zen supplies premium products in vanilla packaging still listing all ingredients so the customer only pays for the product. This allows the consumer to source the product at a fraction of the price.
What is Unique about Body and Zen Products?
Most products are freshly prepared - virtually unheard of in the skincare product business. This line of uniquely fresh, alternative beauty and bath products provide you with a natural alternative to mass-produced, chemically -altered products. By drawing out the healing properties of herbs and flowers, all products are highly beneficial and nourishing, with scents straight from nature.
Why BODY AND ZEN Goats Milk Soap?
When making soap a liquid is required. Soap makers generally use water and now with the demand of Goats Milk Soap using milk is becoming a popular choice. The cream and the proteins that are present in the goat milk add a moisturizing effect to soap that is above and beyond what water can achieve. Recent studies show that Goats milk provides anti-aging properties. It aids in the regeneration of collagen under the skin, negating some of the visible signs of aging.
Goat milk contains the natural vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K, for healthful skin care.
Goat's milk soaps deliver the nutrients of goat's milk straight to the skin, and offer many benefits to skin's appearance and health. Goat's milk soaps contain rich emollients and vitamins to moisturize and nourish the skin. Goat's milk soap contains capric-capryllic triglycerides, which are luxuriously effective in moisturizing skin, and goat's milk soap's gentle natural ingredients are beneficial to people with skin sensitivities or eczema

GOAT MILK SOAP BENEFITS
Goat milk contains lots of nutrients like fats, proteins and other hormones that naturally benefit the skin. The benefits of goat milk soap can be felt by people suffering from various skin conditions or those just wanting to maintain youthful, rejuvenated skin.
Goat milk soap has a pH level similar to human skin; therefore, goat milk soap benefits the skin by protecting skin from daily bacterial and chemical invasions. PH, or also known as acidity, is important to skincare because our skin has what is called an "acid mantle." The acid mantle is a slightly acidic layer on our skin that acts a neutralizer, to the attacks to our body by microbial (such bacteria, viruses) and other contaminants. The light acids caprylic, capric, and caproic acids work together in Goats milk soap to maintain the perfect pH for human skin and hair.
GOATS MILK SOAP & YOUR SKIN
Regular use of goats milk soap makes a huge difference in how your skin feels. The epidermis endures a lot of abuse when exposed to harsh environmental conditions and commercial skin care products. This constant abuse to your skin leaves it feeling dry, taunt, irritated, even cracked and overall feeling generally uncomfortable. Over time, it can even affect the skins appearance by aging it prematurely. Skin allergies can be caused due to harmful chemicals in the commercial products causing redness, dryness accompanied with itching causing a lot of discomfort.
Sensitive Skin – Skin can be sensitive due to genetic disposition, Goats milk soap benefits people with sensitive skin because it doesn't contain additives like alcohol, petroleum and preservatives. This reduces the risk of skin irritation and allergic reactions.
Acne - Goats milk soap along with right blend of essential oils benefits people with acne-prone skin because the proteins in milk kill acne-causing bacteria. Essential Oils and some of the carrier oils such as Neem Oil work very well and provide a solution the natural way.
Eczema - Eczema, a skin condition caused by red, itchy skin patches, benefits from goat milk soap since the natural nutrients in goat milk moisturizes skin and reduces itchiness in the skin. Oils such as Rosehip & Dead sea mud give added benefits to a soap made with Goats Milk base.
Skin Rejuvenation, Exfoliation & Moisturizing - The moisturizing benefits of goat milk soap surpass that of commercial soap because of the natural creams in goat's milk. Goat milk soap sloughs off dead skin because of the alpha-hydroxy acids found in the milk and hence, acting as an exfoliating agent. The alpha-hydroxy acids break down the glue holding dead skin cells together. Alpha-hydroxy acid is well known for softening skin and leaving it rejuvenated for a younger appearance.
