• Saponification is the process of making soap in which we
take oils, which make you greasy, and turn them into soap, which
make you clean. Soap is extremely fascinating. It is actually a
salt that foams! This crystalline nature of soap allows it to be
made clear as glass when boiled in alcohol with sugars. Now a
salt is what you get when you mix an acid and a base together.
The acids and bases neutralize each other and a salt forms in
the process. Soap, is made from acidic oils and an alkaline
solution. Think of it like a child's seesaw. Oil and alkali must
be in balance to make the perfect bar of soap. Unsaponified oils
are called "Free fatty acids", and they add to the moisturizing
effect of high quality soaps. Use too much, and the soap will
not lather, and it will have a shortened shelf life. Excess
alkali, or "Free Alkali" is harsh and drying to sensitive skin.
About 25% of us are estimated to get a dry skin reaction to free
alkali in soaps. Our organic soap formulas have a little bit of
oil and no measurable free alkali. This is part of the reason
why our handmade soap is so mild.
