Why You Should Use This Product:
Nakedpress Liquid soap uses the traditional process of saponification of vegetable oils. It results in a golden coloured liquid soap that is a natural foaming cleanser rich in glycerin, nourishing vitamins and bubbles. Unlike many soap substitutes on the market, based on chemicals and detergents, our soaps are non-allergenic, (perfect for people that are chemically sensitive), and 100% biodegradable.
This liquid soap is free from the usual foaming agents used in the more commercial shampoos, like cocobetaine, decyl glucocide, sodium laurel sulphate, free from detergents, thickeners, animal fats (making it suitable for vegans) palm oil and preservatives, all known skin irritants, making our base non-allergenic and 100% biodegradable.
Unlike industrially made liquid detergents made from petrochemicals, or coconut derivatives, natural handmade liquid soap made from edible oils is always golden yellow to orange to light green in color and it may appear “ runny”. Do not let this thinner consistency trick you in to believing your liquid soap is not concentrated enough, as it is usually more foamy than most soap substitutes. You may find some essential oils e.g rosemary and eucalyptus can thicken your base, and some oils like citrus essential oils can thin your base.
Our liquid soap has it's glycerin retained. Glycerin is a natural humectant or moisturizer, due to it's waterbuilding capabilities, that allows it to draw and absorb water from the air. Chemically speaking glycerin is a by product of the saponification (soap making) process.
To get a bit technical: In a way it is a “refuse” of the chemical bonding between the three fatty molecules of oils with the alkali molecule (potassium hydroxide), which leaves the fourth component of the oil molecules (glycerol) unbound and easily extracted from the soap. In industrial soap making, glycerin is reclaimed from the soap paste, purified and sold as a separate product. Natural handmade soap contains all the available glycerol molecules (glycerin), which contributes to it's mildness and skin friendliness.
