Soap is a big part of our life. All the more reason one should try and get to the bottom of it. Or, at least, get to know a little more about what goes into it. If nothing else, at least acquaint yourself with the difference between commercial soaps and natural handmade ones. Doing so can help you in more ways than one.
Natural soap is made from a chemical reaction between water, lye (also known as sodium hydroxide), and fats and oils. These fats and oil are turned into soap and glycerine by a chemical process called ‘Saponification’. This process, when completed properly, leaves you with pure soap, glycerine, and some residue from the natural ingredients in the individual recipe. Handmade soap is almost always made in small batches. You won’t find huge “handmade soap” factories out there.
