CleanThyme awarded a patent!
I recently received a patent for my CleanThyme soap. "So what" you may say. Let me tell you why this is important.
It is pretty difficult to patent a product, no less a soap. The US patent office only grants patents for unique products - you've got to prove to them that your product is different from everything else on the market. I knew right from the start that CleanThyme was the most unique product that I've created. It is the only soap on the market that has the correct pH - it's acidic like the skin should be - and has no toxic sulfates, no preservatives, no petrolatum, and no dyes. The lather comes from the plant that makes root beer frothy. The bar is held together with edible beeswax. Even the fragrances are naturally occurring aromatherapy agents. They're proven to improve mood and decrease blood pressure. But since lemon oil sets you up for sunburn, I removed the part of lemon oil that does that.
It's one thing to make a scientifically perfect product. It's another thing to make a product that the public likes to use. With CleanThyme, I hit a home run - it's a perfect product that cleans your skin without stripping it of your important natural oils. It "performs" well with just the right balance of "slip" created with glycerin and oatmeal and..you'll love the tons of lather. On top of that, it smells good enough to eat.
Traditional soap is one of the most toxic skin care products. It messes up the pH balance of your skin and allows bacteria to proliferate. The SLS in most soap destroys the barrier function of the skin, allowing toxins to penetrate and creating irritation and a syndrome of rough, oily, slightly red and swollen skin. Many of you have that and have always thought that that's how your skin always is. I addressed each and every problem with traditional soap and created CleanThyme.
Now, you might be wondering why I made a bar soap, instead of a liquid soap, which looks so much fancier. The simple fact is that bar soaps do not require preservatives. And 14% of you are allergic to preservatives.
Try my soap and many of you will see a difference in the appearance of your skin within a few days. (You've also got to start using an SLS free shampoo).
Now you can understand why the US Patent Office has decided that my CleanThyme is unique enough to warrant a patent. The only problem with CleanThyme? You'll never be able to use your old soap again.
