100g Lemon Myrtle & Olive Oil Soap

Pure handmade soap with only 3 ingredients - Australian Olive Oil, Lemon Myrtle Oil and Lemongrass Oil. Beautiful uplifting fragrance, extremely gentle & perfect for sensitive skin. Rustic hand cut 100g bars, packaged in a cardboard box.

How are they made? My soaps are naturally saponified, which refers to the chemical reaction that occurs when the olive oil comes into contact with an alkali, in this case sodium hydroxide. This works as a catalyst to break the ester bonds of the oil triglycerides, releasing fatty acid salts and glycerine. In this process the sodium hydroxide is neutralised, so there is none left in the finished product. Magic! The soaps then take many weeks to cure. This is how soaps have been made for thousands of years.

Commercial soap manufacturers remove the glycerine from the soap as it is used in more expensive cosmetics. That’s why commercial soaps can be so drying on the skin. Not my soaps! They are genuinely moisturising, gentle on the skin and safe for you & the environment.

Ingredients: Australian Olive Oil, Lemon Myrtle Oil and Lemongrass Oil
