How Our Soap Is Made
All of our bar soaps are made with the old fashioned "cold process" method. We combine exact quantities natural oils such as; palm, olive and coconut with a lye and water solution, to craft our soap. It is the careful blending of these oils, a mild acid, with lye water, an alkaline, that transforms these normally opposing ingredients into soap.
With constant stirring this mixture of oils and lye water solution gradually thickens as it begins to transform. Towards the end of this mixing period we add fragrances and color. Once the mixture has thickened to the right consistency it is poured into individual molds for the coconut soaps or into large square box forms for our gourmet soap. Not long after being poured into forms this mixture of oils and lye water begin to transform, in a natural chemical reaction called saponification. This style of soap making is known as “cold-process” since it is not necessary to “cook” the mixture. The heat generated from the natural chemical reaction is enough to provoke the transformation.
The soap will harden enough in 24 hours to be removed from the mold or form. The soaps are then moved to drying racks where they will continue to cure for at least 4 weeks. Once the soaps have fully cured they are then packaged and labeled ready for shipping.
What Makes Our Soap So Special?
We have designed our recipes to have extra oil left in the finished soap, unlike more commercial brands, we do not remove the natural glycerin. This creates a creamy bar of soap with a beneficial moisturizing effect.
