Does your soap have sodium hydroxide in it?
No, however sodium hydroxide is used in the manufacture of all soap. Soap is made by combining vegetable oil with sodium hydroxide, this produces a chemical reaction called saponification. After the soap has been cured, none is present in the final product. This is known as cold process soap making and is the traditional method for making soap.
Do these soaps have Palm oil?
No, Palm oil usage has been growing at a huge rate over the last decade. It is an inexpensive oil that is used primarily in the food industry.
Tragically this causes the loss of the natural habitat of endangered species such as orangutans, rhinos, elephants and tigers by the mass deforestation of rainforests over large areas of Malaysia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.
Rainforests play a critical role in atmospheric balance by removing CO2 from the atmosphere. The removal of this function will likely hasten climate change.
Are your soaps suitable for the face?
Our soaps are formulated for the body, however it is up to you to decide if you would like to test them on your face, keeping in mind that every person's skin is different and what works for others may not necessarily work for you.
How do you care for natural soaps?
Soaps should be kept on a soap holder to keep them dry. If they're left in water, they will become very soft and wont last as long.
