All ingredients in my soap go thru a process called saponification in which oils are mixed with a sodium hydroxide (lye) solution. This exothermic chemical reaction results in glycerin and a type of salt....in other words: SOAP. There is no lye present after the curing period....just a hard, bubbly bar that gently cleans your skin without stripping it of natural oils. Our soap is superfatted at approximately 5%....which simply means we calculate the lye to saponify all but 5% of the oils, to allow for extra skin conditioning. All our ingredients are natural except for skin-safe synthetic fragrance and essential oils.
The Real Soap Co. products are friend and family tested. Please discontinue use if irritation occurs.
