Organic Coconut Soap Flakes

A true soap is made using only plant or animal fats, water & lye. Anything that does not use lye is a detergent and is made using a concoction of chemicals. Soaps tend to be less effective in hard water compared to a detergent – however is a much safer option for the environment & your health.

This is 100% pure natural hard coconut soap that has been ground up into fine flakes.

WHAT IS THE pH LEVEL?
Soap will usually have a pH range between 9-10

It is made from 3 very simple ingredients only Organic Coconut Oil, Water & Lye

WHAT IS LYE?
Lye is basically a very strong alkaline made from salt that will convert a fat into a soap. It is extremely caustic and care needs to be taken when handling. It comes in two forms sodium hydroxide used for hard soap (like our Organic Coconut Soap or potassium hydroxide used for liquid soaps like our Castile Soap. There is no substitute for lye, nothing else will make oil become soap. All the lye is converted in the saponification process and there should not be residual lye left over in a good quality soap.

Here are a range of uses for the amazing ingredient, confirming how versatile it is.

DISH WASHING: Replace synthetic detergents & add make your own dishwashing powder using Washing Soda, Coconut Soap Flakes & Borax. You can use this in the sink or in an automatic dishwasher.

OVEN CLEANER: Make a paste with Bicarb, Borax, Coconut Soap Flakes & Essential Oils. Spread mix inside oven & on trays. Let sit until dry & then wipe clean with a damp cloth.

LAUNDRY POWDER: Combine with Borax, Bicarb & Coconut Soap Flakes for a natural laundry powder.

Can I melt and pour this into other soaps?

You sure can, however you need to read this important tip.

Coconut Soap has naturally retained Glycerine, which absorbs moisture from the air. If you melt and pour and leave in open air its very likely your soap will suck in moisture and form a crusty white crystalline powder all over them. Not too pretty!!

The key is to put your moulds in an airtight container until they have set properly – DO NOT PUT THEM IN THE FRIDGE! If you have some silica beads (those little packets that come on a shoe box that says Do Not Eat), place them in the container to also reduce the moisture.
