Turmeric for your skin contains properties that contribute to a natural glow
Personal and Professional experience
One day I decided to make Turmeric soaps for me and my family and had little idea that others would come to depend on us for these soaps. We begun supplying one store with ten, fifteen and then they requested fifty. One day Earth Elements ran out of Taynas Body Care Turmeric soap and a customer ask, 'how does she expect me to bathe?'. So now I try to churn out as many as two hands can do daily. As we speak, Im waiting for another batch to be collected.
So a popular question when an item is in demand is 'is just a fad?' My personal and professional experience is 'no'. One of my first customers experience with this soap helped to build my confidence as a soaper. I make her no promises except a natural bar soap with no toxins and a great lather. In less than a week, her skin was glowing, ezcema was under control and pimples had significantly diminished. I was like 'wow'. I didnt realized that prior to her using this soap that I was looking at skin that was so damaged. But enough about personal experiences, let me share some research information pulled from the internet on the benefits of Turmeric on skin.

Risks of using turmeric for your skin
There are risks of using turmeric. When using turmeric, you need to be careful about the dosage, the type of product you use, and how it might react to other medications you take.
Turmeric has a low bioavailability. This means that your metabolism burns it off quickly and your body doesn’t absorb much. Avoid taking too much turmeric at one time and wait to see how your body reacts before taking more. If you take other medications, discuss the use of turmeric with your doctor.
When applied to the skin, turmeric can temporarily stain the skin or leave a yellow residue. This is normal. But if you are allergic, direct skin contact can cause irritation, redness, and swelling. Test turmeric on your forearm, applying a dime-sized amount and waiting 24 to 48 hours to see if you react before using on your face. Do not use turmeric on your skin if you are allergic to the spice in food.
