    Details

    What is it?

    • Soap is a surfactant, a necessary function of cleaning. It traps dirt or anything other than water in a little ring called a ‘Micelle’ which is washed away with the rinse water

    • For it to be a true soap, it must be made using plant or animal fats, water, and lye.

    • Lye is essential in making soaps, anything that does not use lye is a detergent

    • Lye is a very strong alkaline that will convert a fat into a soap through saponification. The same principal is why alkali ingredients clean, as they essentially turn grease into soap which dissolved when washed away


    Liquid v Sold Soap

    • Soap can be in solid bar form or in liquid form and this all depends on the type of lye used. Sodium hydroxide is used for hard soap while potassium hydroxide is used for liquid soaps

    Storage

    The paper refill bags are great for the short term and to get your ingredients to you plastic free, but we recommend you transfer to an airtight jar or container of some sort. 


    Store bags away from direct sunlight, and in cooler, dryer places to kept products fresh, as the bags will break down quickly in the presence of heat, light and moisture.


    Get creative and re-purpose any plastic or glass container, just avoid storing in anything tin/aluminium.
