We ensure that there’s further oils in each bar that haven’t been made into cleaning soap. This helps make the bars extra moisturising but it surely does imply they will not fairly be ‘rock onerous’.
We use milks, reminiscent of goat’s milk and coconut milk. The pure sugars in these substances contribute to an superior lather however could make the bars a bit of extra water soluble.
Our bars comprise the pure glycerine that varieties once we make cleaning soap utilizing the standard chilly course of methodology. Glycerine helps make our bars moisturisng to the pores and skin however does compromise hardness barely.
