Or try the Kings & Queens Bar Soaps in:
• Kings of Sumatra Pepper Bergamot

All Kings & Queens products are mineral oil-and paraben-free and enriched with “The Royal Mix,” a blend of Pomegranate, Blue Egyptian Lotus and Malachite extracts containing Hazelnut, Grape, Sunflower and Avocado Oils. The purple fruit of Pomegranate, with benefits of Polyphenolic compounds and Vitamin C, has a crown-like top, which is why it is displayed on the coat of arms of many Royal Houses. The flower of the Blue Lotus was the most popular ancient Egyptian symbol of glory and eternal life for gods and mortals alike containing bioflavonoids, such as quercetin and rutin and antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Malachite was used by Russian Tsars to decorate their palaces to lend extra energy and bring harmony by detoxification the body and healing skin tissue.

The line reflects the true decadence of royals past with an imaginative, modern twist. This fun, irreverent range of beauty products is for fashion, style and design conscious urbanites who are always on the lookout for an affordable statement choice. Get ready like a royal, start the day like a sovereign, make like a monarch.
