Coffee Scrub Soap
We're so happy we came across this small, Portugal based natural soap brand. They have some amazing scents and they're all made by hand in small batches, cold processed with natural and ingredients such as organic oils, plant-based butters and essential oils.
The guys from Raw Care live up in Ericeira, another beach town in Portugal, and took inspiration from the ocean, sun & earth to create their brand Raw Care, supporting a natural lifestyle and limiting their personal footprint.
