Coconut Oil/ Olive Oil Soap - FOHTYWL
Let’s be clear from the beginning. THERE IS NO SOAP WITHOUT LYE. Lye is a hydroxide that is the main ingredient for cleaning. We use oils to neutralize the alkaline nature of the hydroxide and to give nutrition to the skin. The people that claim that they make organic soap simply use a soap mix that already has the lye in it. Soap making is one of the oldest crafts in the world.
Pure Olive Oil Soap gets too hard; almost like a rock and is very creamy. Many people feel uncomfortable with its feel. Moreover, it does not produce suds (lather). However, many people find it very creamy and rich. To get to a comfortable balance, we add about 15% of coconut oil to produce suds and reduce the creamy feeling. We also add Shea butter with a natural scent.
Coconut/Olive Oil soap provides the best of all worlds. It is an excellent antioxidant thus making the skin look younger and tighter. Helps prevent or reduce acne. With proper use, it helps with skin rashes, eczema and psoriasis. Adding Shea butter helps minimize scarring and provides gentle ultraviolet protection.
