The soap is the result of a chemical reaction between a fatty substance and a strong base (sodium hydroxide).
Each of these phases (aqueous phase and oily phase) are mixed in quantities and at very precise temperatures. Oils and butters in contact with sodium hydroxide turn into soap. This chemical reaction is called: Saponification.
The cold manufacturing process is an artisanal method performed at room temperature and requires no cooking. Thus 100% of the glycerine produced during the saponification remains in the soap. Glycerine brings soap its essential moisturizing properties for the greatest pleasure of your skin.
The long drying process with ambient air (four weeks minimum) allows the saponification to finish well. This treatment allows the soap to dry and gives it a natural hardening, without synthetic additive.
Colors & fragances
All the different colors and scents are the specificity of each recipe. So for the color I use clays, flower petals ... and for perfumes I create a synergy of one to three essential oils.
All my soaps are 7 to 8% surgras. This corresponds to the part of fat that is not transformed into soap.
My soaps are without chemical preservatives, synthetic perfumes, artificial colors or palm oil.
The natural and human environment is important to me and that's how I conceive my soaps.
