Why Beer Is One of Our Favorite Skincare Ingredients

It's National Beer Day, and we're here to raise a toast to something beyond the pint glass – the incredible benefits of beer for your skin. Have you ever considered incorporating beer-infused soap into your skincare routine? If not, you're in for a treat.

While it may sound strange, Beer is the star ingredient in two of our best-selling bar soaps, Oatmeal Stout and Honey Ale. This unique skincare ingredient has a variety of benefits that can take your skin closer to it’s healthiest, softest state. 

  1. Hops to the Rescue: When you crack open a cold one, that refreshing aroma you experience comes from hops. Beyond fragrance, hops are packed with antioxidants, renowned for their skin-soothing properties. They can effectively calm irritated skin and reduce inflammation, leaving your complexion as smooth as a perfectly poured pint.
  2. Yeast for a Feast: Often associated with baking bread or brewing beer, yeast is also a skincare superhero. Loaded with B vitamins and probiotics, yeast nourishes and balances the skin's microbiome, promoting a healthy glow from within. Dull skin is revitalized, leaving behind a long-lasting glow. 
  3. Barley Brilliance: Barley, a staple in beer-making, offers more than just malt. Rich in selenium, a mineral that shields the skin from environmental stressors like pollution and UV rays, barley also contains amino acids crucial for collagen production. This keeps your skin firm and youthful.

Crafted with care and locally sourced beer from Hudson Brewing Co., our soaps are a celebration of both skincare and sustainability. Partnering with a local brewery ensures that each bar is infused with the freshest, highest quality beer, brimming with all those skin-loving nutrients.

Our Honey Ale Natural Bar Soap blends the sweet goodness of honey with the nourishing properties of ale, creating a luxurious lather that leaves your skin feeling soft and hydrated. And for those craving something heartier, our Oatmeal Stout Natural Bar Soap features oatmeal for gentle exfoliation and stout for a rich, creamy texture – it's like a spa day in a bar of soap!

This National Beer Day, why not treat yourself to the sudsy goodness of beer-infused skincare? Allow your skin to drink up the nutrients of this underrated skincare ingredient.
