Featuring ground dandelion root and nettle leaf, along with colloidal oatmeal, these bars are a treat for your skin! We've scented them with "Clover and Aloe" fragrance, which compliments the natural herbal fragrances.
These cold processed soaps are made with saponified olive and organic coconut oils; cocoa butters; kaolin clay; mulberry silk; dandelion root powder; nettle leaf powder, and colloidal oatmeal, these bars are formulated to offer an especially gentle, skin soothing soap. Each bar weighs at least 6 ounces.
The other ingredients, not related to lather, bubble type, and skin feel, are titanium dioxide, activated charcoal, phthalate free fragrance oils, and sodium lactate (the salt component of lactic acid, used for hardening soap). Sodium hydroxide (lye) is added to oils early in the soap making process. Lye and oils combine in the saponification process, chemically transforming into soap and glycerin, leaving no remaining lye. Our soaps, along with many (most?) cold processed soaps, are "superfatted," which means that we add slightly more oils than are necessary to saponify the lye. This ensures that no lye will remain when saponification is complete, and the remaining oils contribute to producing an emollient bar of soap.
