Soap Bars A more natural way to wash your skin. My handmade soap bars contain a very clever naturally occurring ingredient – glycerine. It has a wonderful way of drawing moisture to the surface of the skin, leaving it soft and beautifully moisturised. Throw in some carefully selected essential oils and hand-picked herbs, and you end up with a range of soaps to suit every type of skin.
Cold process soap is made by combining oils and sodium hydroxide lye. Which causes a chemical reaction called saponification.
Technically, cold process soap is safe to use after a few days. However, here at Jules Of The Earth we prefer to let the soap bars cure for a minimum of 4 weeks in a cool, dry place with good airflow. Excess water can then evaporate, creating a harder and milder bars that last longer in the shower. It’s definitely worth the wait.
Sometimes soda ash can occur. This creates an uneven, white, ashy film on soap. It forms when unsaponified lye reacts with carbon dioxide in the air. It doesn’t affect the quality and the soap is perfectly safe to use.
Because I don’t manufacture on an industrial scale, pictures are a representation as bottle shape and colours may sometimes change.
