Our soaps are made according to the traditional method. When oil meets an alkaline agent, such as lye, it transforms into glycerin and soap. This is the natural reaction of what is called saponification and is used for centuries all over the world. The lye was originally obtained from ashes. During the saponification process, the lye is fully neutralized by its reaction with the oils and is entirely transformed. It is therefore safe. The glycerin in this type of soap is very rich in active principles, this is why there is no need to add any other kind of glycerin. All our soaps are put in cure during several weeks and their PH is tested during all the saponification process.
We use the following vegetal powders, spices or clays to color our soaps: Alkanet Root Powder, Beet Root Powder, Cinnamon Ground, Ghassoul Clay, Kaolin Clay, Madder Root Powder, Rosehips Powder, Spirulina Powder, Stevia Leaves, Turmeric Ground and Wallnut Hulls. This represents less than 0.3% of our soaps and shampoos.
