Why We Use Goats Milk
What is soap?
Created by a chemical reaction between oils, water and lye, soap is the oldest cleanser around. Although lye is used to make soap, there is NO lye left after saponification takes place. Saponification is the chemical reaction between the oils, water and lye. After the soap has dried for 3 weeks the lye no longer exists in the soap. All bar soaps are made with lye!
Why are "conventional" soaps harmful?
Most of the conventional soaps that you buy today, from your local drug store or supermarket, are not really soaps at all, but detergents. Detergents are petroleum based products like gasoline and kerosene. Detergents tend to leave your skin feeling dry, itchy and tight. Ingredients in mass-marketed soaps have been proven harmful to human health and can cause severe skin irritations in some people. These include ingredients such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, DEA, Isopropyl Alcohol, BHT and Triclosan (commonly found in anti-bacterial soaps). Approximately 72% of all liquid soaps sold in the United States now contain antibacterial ingredients, such as Triclosan. Triclosan not only kills bacteria, it also has been shown to kill human cells!
