What’s in there and what does it do?
Goat Milk fresh goat milk, never powder.
Olive oil makes the soap very moisturizing. It has the ability to trap moisture and hold it close to the skin without clogging pores. It helps heal dry, irritated skin and helps create a very hard bar once fully cured.
Coconut oil has skin-healing benefits, produces a hard bar and gives our soap its luxurious lather.
Palm Kernel Oil is made from the kernel of the palm fruit. It has good saturation and a low molecular weight, which makes it a good addition for hard soaps (Produces a hard, white soap)
Lye (or sodium hydroxide) is something you gotta have for “saponification” (the process that produces soap, usually from fats and lye). It keeps the milk and oils from separating. It is consumed in the saponification process. (Saponification = The chemical reaction between any fat and sodium hydroxide is a saponification reaction.)
Essential oils for scent.
Colorant a small amount of iron oxide.
French green clay-used for centuries to sooth skin, exfoliate and detoxify the skin. It gives the soap a bit of a srubby, gritty feel.
