Irish Moss & Cranberry Seed Sheep Soaps


This cute sheep shaped soap is made with high quality glycerine soap and scented with Green Irish Tweed fragrance oil. It contains cranberry seeds and Irish moss. Irish moss is a remarkable gift from the sea. Irish Moss is a curly, red-purple to yellow-green, cartilaginous algae that appears at low tide on all the shores of the North Atlantic and comes from a genus of about fifteen species of marine algae.  It is a perennial thallophyte with a height and spread from three to twelve inches and a disc-shaped holdfast.  The plants are collected wild, growing on rocks and stones in pools and shallow saltwater and may be harvested by boat, using a rake (causing minimal damage to the holdfasts) and by hand from the submerged rocks. Used externally, Irish Moss is a wonderful emollient that softens and soothes the skin and other exposed tissue.  It eases sunburn, chapped skin, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis and rashes.  It is used to prevent premature aging when used topically for smoothing wrinkles on the skin, and the herb promotes a bright, healthy glow. Each bar weighs 3 to 3.5 ounces.
