Honey Bar Soap Lavender 6 oz
Handmade bar soap varieties allow this reaction to play all the way out resulting in the glycerin molecules settling in-between and stabilizing the newly produced soap molecules. Commercial bar soaps, on the other hand, are produced using a method called cold processing. Salts are added to the cold process mixture to quickly curdle soap molecules and force all of the glycerin to separate from the mixture. The soap is then removed, molded, packaged, and sold while the glycerin is reused to make other cosmetics products like lotions and face creams. This forced removal of the products glycerin actually creates a detergent bar rather than a soap bar. The cleaning agent remains intact but the softening agent is removed. It is this removal of the glycerin that makes commercial bar soap products harsh and damaging to skin, especially sensitive skin types.
