Why Homemade Soap?
Ok, let me answer your question with my own question. Did you know most soaps that you buy at the supermarkets aren't soap?
Yep, most store-bought “soap,” even the ones labeled as “natural,” are synthetic detergents. The most significant benefit to these detergents is the amount of suds that they produce. The problem is these detergents strips your skin of the natural oils it has. To make it worse, they often also remove the most significant soap benefit, Glycerin, which adds to their moisturizing products. It’s an excellent way for the company to get you to buy two products instead of one.
Our homemade soaps are made by combining natural oils and an alkali to create a chemical reaction called saponification. During this process, the natural accruing glycerin maintains its integrity and settles in between the newly formed soap molecules. This leaves you with a soap that not only cleans without stripping your skin of its oils but also helps to keep things moisturized.
Is homemade soap safe?
Yes, if done correctly. Soap making has been dated back to 2800 BC. At the start of it, all soap makers would use the ashes from burnt wood and would combine it with animal fats. Over the last 5,000 years, technology and the modernization of the soap making process have made it a lot safer. Like any other chemical reaction, if you don’t have your formula balanced, it can be really bad.
Our soap recipes have been created using industry standards and guaranteed not to be alkali heavy.
If it's homemade why can't I pronounce the ingredient list?
The short answer… the government. It’s a safety standard that the FDA has for anything cosmetic. We know it can be scary when you see items like Cocos Nucifera Oil (commonly known as Coconut oil) and Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter (widely known as Cocoa butter).
