What is cold process soap?
The idea of soap as we know it was first created thousands upon millennia ago by the ancient Babylonians. Modern soaps often combine advanced ingredients, but at its core is still based on this historic version which dates back to 6000 BC!
There are many different ways to make soap, but one of the most popular methods, and the one we recommend by far is cold process soap-making. Cold process soap-making involves mixing together oils and lye to create a chemical reaction known as saponification. This reaction produces soap, glycerin, and heat.
Cold Process Soap Benefits
Packed with nourishing goodness for your skin, here are five benefits of using cold process soap:
1. Cold process soap is gentle on your skin.
The main reason why cold process soap is so gentle on your skin is because it contains glycerin. Glycerin is a natural by-product of the saponification process and is a humectant, meaning it attracts moisture to your skin. This makes cold process soap an excellent choice for people with dry or sensitive skin as it helps to keep your skin hydrated. Furthermore, the addition of rich plant oils and butters creates a creamy lather that provides deep moisturisation. They penetrate deep into the skin, giving you the experience of a luxurious moisturiser while still being a bar of soap!
2. Cold process soap is made with natural ingredients.
Cold Process soap is made with natural ingredients, without the addition of any detergents and other harmful chemicals that are damaging to the skin.
Furthermore, all of our cold process soaps are handmade in small batches to ensure the highest quality and attention to detail.
3. Cold process soap is good for people with sensitive skin.
If you have sensitive skin, then you know how difficult it can be to find products that won’t irritate your skin or cause breakouts. Most store-bought soaps contain harsh detergents that can strip your skin of its natural oils, causing dryness, redness, and inflammation.
However, because cold process soap is made with natural ingredients, it is much less likely to cause these sorts of reactions.
4. Cold process soap is biodegradable.
Another great benefit of cold process soap is that it is biodegradable, meaning it will break down naturally and won’t pollute the environment. Most store-bought soaps contain synthetic ingredients that can take years to decompose, but with cold process soap, you can be sure that you’re not harming the planet every time you wash your hands.
5. Cold process soap is vegan-friendly.
If you’re looking for a vegan-friendly soap, then cold process soap is a great option as it doesn’t contain any animal products. Most store-bought soaps contain tallow, which is rendered animal fat.
My soaps are coloured with skin safe colours pigments, mica and oxides.
