Oname Oceans: Mermaid & The Diver
Sing soft and sweet on citrus-spicy notes of essential oils and nourishing Sea Buckthorn and Almond Oils.
Washing with Mermaid & The Diver is about hydrating and repairing body, hair and soul. Inspired by those who love to sing in the shower, we have created a soap that reminds us of the good things in life. Sea Buckthorn oil is full of vitamins, Omegas and beta-carotene and you can smother it all over your skin and hair as you lather up. Almond and Olive oils are conditioning while castor oil makes a lovely lather that is great to wash your hair with too. So take some time to regenerate your skin as you wash and soothe away dryness...and perhaps sing away the stresses of a day.

How To Use Our Soap
Mermaids and Mermen, if washing with solid soap is a different experience for you, prepare to really enjoy a new way to wash. Wet your soap, then take some moments to roll our wonderful round bar over and over in your palms to release the rich and creamy lather. Breathe in the warm ginger and lemon scent for a comforting wash.
For hair, we recommend making small circles with the soap on the top and sides of your scalp. If you have long hair, lift the hair with one hand and rotate your soap near the scalp at the sides, base and top of the head too. Next, pop down your soap and massage the scalp, making sure to get the lather right to the scalp. The rinse well as usual. When washing your body, we recommend circulating the soap directly on your skin. Take your time to enjoy your wash!
When washing your hair, please note that it can take up to six weeks for your hair to feel the benefit of switching to sold shampoo as it rebalances all the oils stripped away by chemical laden liquid shampoos. Hair can feel thicker and greasy to begin with. Commitment is needed.
Avoid contact with the eyes. Rinse with warm water if necessary.
Store your soap in a cool, airy spot away from stagnant water to keep it hard.
About Your Soap
Oname soaps are ‘All-vegetable’ cold-process soaps. When we mix our vegetable or plant oils (which are acids) with an alkaline base (we use Sodium Hydroxide) they react and neutralise into a salt which is your soap. This process is called Saponification. We use water as our solvent to dissolve the base. The natural reaction that takes place creates enough of its own heat to ‘saponify’ the oils so no external heat is needed. That’s why our method is called ‘Cold-process’ soap making. Before we pour our soaps into molds, essential oils are stirred into the saponifying oils to add scent and additional skin and hair benefits. Now, here’s the best bit…Oname soaps feel lovely and soft and have rich, creamy, natural lathers because we do something clever called superfatting. We superfat by leaving some of the gorgeous vegetable oils unsaponified so you can enjoy rich nutritious lathers that nourish your skin and hair, along with other nutrients such as oatmilk, honey, clays and essential oils. During the reaction, the base ingredients change. For example, Olive Oil becomes Sodium Olivate – a sodium salt derived from the fatty acids of Olive oil. In our ingredients list, you will see what is actually in the bar of soap you are using after saponification has taken place. In addition, we have listed the name of the base oils before saponification and explained how and why we include the other ingredients we use.
