Coconut 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.
Coconut oil soap is an excellent moisturizer. It can be used for the skin and the hair. It has amazing exfoliating effect on the skin thus helps removing dead skin and dirt away from the skin. It is rich in antioxidants and thus helps tighten the skin making it look younger. A lesser known, but important, benefit of using coconut oil soap is that it events or or reduces acne. We add some Shea butter to our coconut soap together with some natural scents. Adding Shea butter helps minimize scarring and provides gentle ultraviolet protection.
Ingredients: coconut oil, water, lye (sodium based), shea butter, sodium lactate.
