Pure and Mild Soap: Natural & Nature Identical Cold Process Soaps
Soap and shampoo are two products that many of us use on a daily basis. Unfortunately, many of the soaps and shampoos available in the stores today contain undesirable ingredients that are difficult to pronounce and have been shown to cause health concerns.
Making handmade soaps with natural ingredients can greatly reduce your exposure to the many chemicals and harmful additives that are present in these commercially available soaps and shampoos. When you make your own soaps, you choose the ingredients and have complete control over what you put into them.
Sometimes, however, natural is not always the best solution. Some ingredients in their natural form can be harmful. For example, micas can be mined naturally, but can contain bacteria, contaminants and pollutants. This is where nature identical ingredients can help. Nature identical colorants are lab synthesized and are identical at the molecular level to the ingredient they are replicating. While they are not considered 100% natural, they are often a better choice than their natural equivalent. The recipes in this book use both natural and nature identical colorants.
In this book you will find fifteen recipes and instructions for making cold processed soaps using a variety of oils and liquids including milks, herb infused oils, yogurt, beer, and essential oils. The soaps are formulated to be mild and moisturizing and are great for those with sensitive skin. Most of them can be used as body soap as well as shampoo bars.
The recipes are for small batches of soap. This allows you to try the soap recipe without making a large investment in materials. Ounces, grams and percentages are included so that if later you decide you like the recipe, you can then resize it with a lye calculator to make larger batches.
Put on a good movie or some relaxing music, grab your stick blender, and start making beautiful soaps that are safer alternatives for you and your family.
