- Cool Down: Nutritional anthropologists believe aloe vera is one of the oldest remedies, noted for its beneficial qualities in Egyptian, Roman, Chinese, Greek, Italian, Arabian and Indian history. Ancient texts have told us that Cleopatra herself was a big fan of the desert plant, using aloe as a night time face mask
- The Man, The Myth, The Legend: The name calamine stems from the Greek, ‘kadmeia,’ meaning ‘Cadmean earth.’ This is a reference to Cadmus, the legendary founder of Thebes, a city featured prominently in many Greek myths, including the tale of Oedipus. We use calamine in our Oedipus Rx soap to treat the skin with a gentle toning and antiseptic action that provides calming relief from rashes and irritation
- Chinawhite: The main component of calamine powder is zinc oxide, a white powder, laced with just a hint of red iron oxde, which combine to produce the pretty pink hue associated with calamine lotion. Zinc oxide, also known as Chinese White, has a longstanding history of use as a medicinal ointment in topical antiseptic creams to calm irritated skin
