What’s the deal with soap?
Soap forms when an oil, such as coconut, olive, or palm, is mixed with a base. The soap molecules have the unique ability to interact with both water and grease particles, scooping them up, and washing them away. This same process is how soap can destroy viruses and bacteria: when you’re washing your hands, soap is able to dissolve the weak fatty membrane surrounding the virus particles, destroying the virus-cell, and carrying the debris down the drain with water.
Not only does the inherent cleansing properties of soap help keep us healthy, but SoapGeek’s handmade soaps also are gentle on the skin and provide a rich source of botanical ingredients and medicinal benefits.
