Natural and Olive Oil Soap Makes a Comeback

Year ago, the claim that Ivory was 99.4 percent pure (their earlier claims said they were 85.48 percent) made people consider just what the ingredients were. Being pure of something, whether it’s natural soaps or alcohol, needs further explanation. While the fatty anhydrides, soda, and water caused explained the number, many wondered what percentages of the other brands were, and what exactly were the ingredients. With so many choices out there the public continues to believe what is being told to them, even if health issues of leery ingredients prevail. Lye is used in all soap, even olive oil soap, in some method or another. The components of lye (ash) to saponify the oils and water to create soap has changed, but something is always needed to cause this reaction. In the soap making beginning there’s a story how mixing potash created a lye mix, which resulted into soap making. But if this was happy accident, much research was done after; or curing time, not to mention the blending of different oils, for soap makers to continue their passion today. Thank God for that. Now, the common lye mixture is sodium hydroxide and water. Do we really need lye though? True, many oils can clean the skin itself, but that would mean drowning our faces and body in oils and rinsing off, only to feel like a slimy well moisturized eel. A friend also claimed that he didn’t need soap, and to prove a point, continued to take showers, while sometimes skipping a day, depending on his body’s natural oils to clean him. He submitted, and bought a huge...
