Getting Back to Soap Basics
It has been around for thousands of years. We use it every day. We trust it with our health and the health of our family. Of course, we are talking about soap and like most other things, it is the simplest soaps which serve us the best. This means with soap, it is time we get rid of the extra hype and get back to the basics.
“Created from the numerous variations of ingredients, all soaps have two main ingredients – animal or vegetable oils/fats and an alkaline solution that enables the process of saponification.” In ancient Babylon soap was made from boiling animal fat with water and ash. If the process really so simple, what exactly is the list of ingredients on the back of those big commercial brands? Big name brand soap companies think they need to add chemicals to make the soap lather more or last longer. And, the result is an entirely different product than what we started out with.
The best choice in soap is a product of natural ingredients, handmade. All natural soaps return to the simple way of making it right without chemical add ins. It gives us clean, healthy skin without the toxic trade off which comes with commercial soaps.
