OUR COLD PROCESS SOAP
The process begins with high quality oils and butters emulsified with milk, water and sodium hydroxide (lye). Despite what anyone has said, there is no soap with out LYE. When mixed with oils and butters it causes a reaction called Saponification. After 24-48 the lye and some of the water evaporates leaving behind what we know as Soap! The soap is now ready to be cut into bars. Likada bars are cut into 4.5-5 oz bars. Each bar is cured for at least six weeks to reach its best condition and quality. During this time more water evaporates leaving a harder and longer lasting bar of soap weighing approximately 4-5 oz. Each Individual soap is stamped with an acrylic stamp and wrapped with recycled Kraft brown paper, twine and finally stamped with a wax seal.
History of Soap
Rest assure that although Lye is required to make the soap no lye is left in the final product. Soap has been made this way since the beginning of civilization. In the past animal fat was mixed with ashes (lye or alkili) and made into a slurry used to clean. Although there is no proof of it, an old Roman wives’ tale holds that women who lived near Mount Sapo discovered soap when rain washed a combination of wood ashes and animal fat into the clay soil by the Tiber River where they were doing laundry. Soap has come a long way since then and has become more nourishing and moisturizing and definitely better for the skin.
Three reasons to make the switch to Goat milk soap
•Goat’s Milk is high in Alpha Hydroxy acids like lactic acid. It helps break down dead skin cell bonds, making it easy to remove dead skin cells from the skins surface leaving behind smoother skin.
•Won't dry skin out like commercial "soap" made with detergents. Leaves skin naturally moisturized.
•Packed with vitamins like B1, B6, B12, C, D and E.
