The word teselli means ‘solace’ in the Turkish language. Kinder Soaps think it is a beautiful word to describe the purpose behind this soap’s formulation. Suitable for very troubled, inflamed or broken skin that seems to take ages to heal.
This is the soap which Kinder Soaps originally released as a seasonal special for Christmas last year. The founder formulated this when she was feeling particularly introspective. This explains the name, and as it turns out, the combination of ingredients may be particularly comforting for the skin too.
This soap contains essential oils of frankincense (Boswellia carterii) and myrrh (Commiphora myrrha) which are more known to us as two of the three precious gifts that were supposedly offered to the baby Jesus by magi (wise men) in the biblical tale of Jesus’ birth. Earliest recorded usage of these plants in skincare have been found from as far back as 5000 years ago, including for the healing of wounds. Modern-day science is currently studying frankincense and myrrh as possible treatments for cancer. This mellow blend of scents is complemented with tamanu oil, which in itself is a remarkable ingredient in skincare, aiding with healing and pain relief when applied in sufficient amounts.
When Kinder Soaps first introduced Teselli, they were experimenting with a special cloth wrap for their soap which could possibly see Kinder Soaps abandoning plastic shrink-wrapping altogether. Read more in Kinder Soaps's blog post about why they see it as a big step forward, away from our dependency on plastic as a means of protection for the soap!
