Cold Process Soap and its Benefits.
Soap is one of those day-to-day products we take for granted, but did you know that this cleansing staple actually dates back thousands of years to when the ancient Babylonians mixed together fats and ash to make the very first soap? Modern soaps often combine advanced ingredients but the essential idea of soap as we know it is based on this historic version.
There are different methods of making soap. The one we believe creates the best quality bar of soap is called the cold process method. Passed down through generations, the cold process soap making method creates gentle soaps that cured over 4 to 6 weeks produces a long-lasting bar with ultimate moisturization.
This traditional soap making technique allows us to use only the best natural ingredients and essential oils to produce soap that’s even suitable for sensitive skin.
Cold process handmade soap is also sometimes called Lye Soap. It is created by mixing lye & water with oils and then mixed briskly. The lye reacts chemically with the oil mixture in a process called saponification, meaning to turn into soap. The soap is allowed to sit for a minimal a month to cure, which finalizes the saponification process. When all ingredients are properly measured and mixed, the final product is gentle and beneficial for your skin.
