Soap

Tsunu And Breu from Brazil (SKU 4407)

Tsunu's & Breuzinho soap has antiseptic, healing and anti-inflammatory action, improving the appearance of the skin. Breu Branco is a resin extracted from the species Protium heptaphyllum, rich in essential oils that confer anti-inflammatory action. Tsunu Ash is made from the barks of Pau Pereira (platycyamus regnelii) rich in allantoin, a substance that gives cicatrizant action.  Ashes have been used in soaps since immemorial times, to aid the saponificaiton process and for their anti-septic and its abrasive quality much like clay. Most people will know Tsunu from the Rapé recipes, this is the very same, directly from the Yawanawá. The Tsunu tree is considered one of the most sacred of the Yawanawa and is known for it´s energizing and energetic cleansing properties.



This line of natural soaps is all cold processed using only natural ingredients, as much as possible from the Brazillian Amazon and Cerrado biospheres. Many of these ingredients will be familiar to you from different products from the region like Rapé and medicinal tinctures to food items or incenses; others will be new to you.

Maria José, who makes these soaps and other natural indigenous cosmetics, is a pharmacist with nearly 20 years of professional experience in phytotherapy. Apart from her professional experience it is also a personal passion and a spiritual journey. A few years ago she started to make these soaps and has dedicated a big part of her time now to experimenting new formulas and ingredients from indigenous and traditional sources to benefit the skin and person as a whole. Most of her ingredients come from small producers, either indigenous or traditional communities like the so called Ribeirinhos that live on the banks of the Amazonian rivers and collectors in the Cerrados, Savanas, of Brasil. To give an exemple the Pequi oil she uses comes from the Kisedjé tribe in the Xingu region of Mato Grosso state where she recently went in cooperation with the NGO ISA to teach the cold process soap system to the community. (photos included). The Tsunu comes from the Yawanawá and the Dragon's blood is collected by non-indigenous sustainable forest dwellers, just to give a few examples. We are now bringing in cooperation with Katukina the first few recipes and products and hopefully more will follow in the future.
