Soap Making Process
Handmade soap is formed by the saponification process between oils, fats and “Lye”(sodium hydroxide). Handmade soap is pure and it cleanses and moisturizes without stripping your skin off its natural healthy oils.
Soap is essential to keep the skin clean and germ free. Washing your hands and body with water can remove dirt from our skin and clothes but some dirt and bacteria are invisible and cannot be removed by just water. Soaps save lives by stopping the spread of harmful bacteria in dirt. Handmade soaps are emulsifiers – this means they allow water and oil to mix, which in turn removes dirt and harmful bacteria and helps us to stay hygienic and healthy. Organic compounds based soaps are the safest as they already approved to nourish your body, why not use them to nourish the biggest organ of your body (Your Skin!).
Commercial soaps are manufactured in big factories and are actually detergents made of chemical hardness and foaming agents. In the soap making process glycerine is released as a by product and natural glycerine is wonderful to hydrate and soften the skin. But the commercial value of this glycerine if much more than that of the soap. Hence, the commercial soap companies extract this glycerine and sell it separately replacing it with cheaper chemicals. Handmade soaps on the other hand leave this glycerine in the soap and are ”superfatted ” too.
Most handmade soaps are further made without harsh chemicals like SLS (sodium lauryl sulphate) and Parabens (preservatives) which cause allergies and skin irritations. Recent studies have linked these compounds to be carcinogenic.
The skin is the largest organ of the body and is incredibly porous and absorbent. 60% of whatever you put on it is absorbed into the body. Whatever products are put on the skin not only make us look and feel good but have an important impact on our overall health and well-being also.
So now you can decide what you want to feed your skin; harsh chemicals or super foods like shea butter and honey to name a few.
Superfatting is the process of adding extra fats (oils or butters) when formulating a soap recipe, so there is more fat in the mixture than the lye can react with during the chemical reaction. This process leaves a portion of oils in the finished handmade soap, which ensures maximum moisturizing and cleaning qualities. Since adding extra oils and butters can decrease the shelf-life of a soap bar, commercial soaps trade the moisturizing properties in favor of their "forever" shelf-life. They also add parabens (preservatives) for the same reason.
We have already highlighted the main differences between the commercial variants of soap and the handmade soaps in the question above, however there are a few more benefits which will make you go for handmade soaps forever.
