Wine Soap for Your Skin

Updated: Jun 17

Most innovations happen with mistakes. When a winemaker experiences what is called "stuck fermentation," it is a problem that occurs when the yeast dies out before consuming all of the sugars.

This "stuck fermentation" happened to a winemaker. Believing that his wine batch had gone wrong, the winery set aside this problem batch. A few weeks later, the winemaker tasted this "mistake" and was pleasantly surprised at the sweet flavor and its pink color. This accidental wine is White Zinfandel and became Sutter Homes Winery's number one seller in 1975. Today, Soaps Creams & Things makes

California Zin Wine Soap from White Zinfandel Wine.

Knowing that wine cooking can enhance many foods, can wine on our skin do the same? As with cooking, wine does enhance the ingredients of food; in soap, the notes that wine picks up are the notes from the essential oils; this gives wine soap a double boost in skincare and its benefits:

Maturing Skin: Red wine is packed with antioxidants like flavonoid, resveratrol, and tannin, which help fight aging by restoring collagen and elastic fibers”, says Anshul Jaibharat, a Delhi-based nutritionist. It is known to lift sagging skin and reduce fine lines.

  • Acne Prone Skin: Due to its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, applying red wine topically on the face clears the pores, fights acne, and prevents future breakouts. A good home remedy is to soak a cotton ball or pad in red wine, and apply for 20 minutes, a fast and easy way to get a glow going.

  • For naturally beautiful skin: Red wine contains polyphenols that help transform a dull complexion and give you the glow you’ve always wanted. Wash your face with our California Zin Wine soap; it will gently cleanse and leave skin soft, then apply Perfect Facial Serum to finish your regimen.

Soaps Creams & Things today uses wines of red berries, citrus, or melons that are accented by subtle hints of stone fruits and violets. With great properties, they contain the antioxidant Quercetin, a natural pigment present in many fruits, vegetables, and grains. Flavonoids are polyphenolic molecules containing 15 carbon atoms and are soluble in water, and are part of the wine composition. Resveratrol promotes many health benefits, such as protecting the heart and circulatory system; cell damage, and has anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties.

A luxurious wine soap. Cheers.
