Benefits of cold process soap
DO YOU PREFER SOAP OR SHOWER GEL?
We often tend to avoid the famous bar soap in favor of its more practical cousin. Sometimes it is also because bar soap dries out our skin. If your skin is dry after showering with soap, either you are using an industrial soap (hot saponified) or your cold process soap is not rich enough for your skin. There are SAF soaps with up to 10% sugars, which will leave your skin nourished and soft.
HANDMADE SOAP, AN ANCIENT ART …
The soap we know today is the product of 2500 years of evolution. The original Egyptian version, made from potassium carbonate and clay in animal fat form had some cleansing properties but was not fully realized until the Renaissance when people started using it more often for their daily needs rather than just on special occasions or avoiding getting dirty at all costs like they did before then (in fact many Egyptians were buried with one). In the 13th century, olive oil was introduced to soap as a replacement for animal fat. This new composition was inspired by Marseille soap makers in 1791 when chemist Nicolas Leblanc revolutionized cold saponification through his development of caustic soda that is used today with heating processes and chemical surfactants mixed into it; he also found out how useful this hot process can be if done properly (with synthetic preservatives).
The input states “it has been theft” which does not seem like something people would say unless they were trying to make their point more effectively by adding emotionality or urgency.
HOW IS SOAP MADE COLD?
Soap is one of the oldest products on earth, dating back to at least 17th century Europe. The process starts with a chemical reaction between basic solutions like caustic soda and oils mixed together in different proportions depending upon what you’re trying to make; this will produce both fat molecules ( thesis ) as well as water-soluble ones called glycerol. After the shower, Pachamama soaps are gentle on your skin thanks to vegetable glycerin. The chemical reaction between soda and oils yields an emollient that’s essential for making cosmetics as well!
IS BLEACH DANGEROUS?
The name “caustic” soda can sometimes lead to believe that the soap will be aggressive for the skin, but the reaction between the oils and the soda will make it disappear completely at the end of the treatment, so there is no danger to this level. Very precise calculations allow calculating the optimal ratio of soda and oils to obtain a mild soap. In addition, it is necessary to provoke the chemical reaction that is at the origin of the cold saponified soap.
WHAT IS A SUPER FATTY SOAP?
A superfast soap is the percentage of oil or butter that is added in addition to what is necessary to consume the soda or potash. The saponification is then partial. For example, a soap with 8% sugars will contain 8% more vegetable oil to nourish your skin.
THE BENEFITS OF COLD PROCESS SOAP:
glycerin naturally present in soap hydrates skin
the properties of oils, shortenings, and essential oils are better preserved than in an industrial process that requires heating to produce on a larger scale
It is a mild surfactant for facial cleansing.
THE ART OF COLD SOAP
To create a cold-process soap, fat must be mixed with an alkaline base. The result of this chemical reaction is that all oils and butter will become saponifiable which produces soaps made from them in different ways depending on their balance: abundant foam for olive oil; washing power or conditioning effect when coconut oil shines through as well (depending on if you want your skin feeling soft). Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Coconut Oil all provide different benefits that make them ideal ingredients for soap. For example:
Coconut oil helps harden the soap while preserving its natural lathering ability; Shea kinds of butter give a rich texture to soaps without adding any grated Farrelly scent as some other detergents do; finally, we have pure cocoa butter which provides protection from harshness on the skin as well as softening it due to its high vitamin K content (this will prevent dry patches).
