|Lac (Cow’s Whole Milk - Buttermilk)
||Originally this was the milk left behind after churning butter but now a lot of people drink it or use it in cooking. It is really creamy and so makes our Buttermilk soap even creamier. In Milk Soaps, fresh Buttermilk is self-preserving due to the pH.
|Sodium Olivate (Saponified Olive Oil)
||Wonderfully healthy for the skin. So many benefits, it might be best to Google "Olive Oil Skin" instead.
|Sodium Cocoate (Saponifed Coconut Oil)
||We used coconut oil as a stabiliser, it also helps to moisturise the skin
|Sodium Sunflowerate (Saponifed Sunflower Oil)
||Sunflower Oil that has been saponified. Sunflower Oil is rich in vitamins A, D, especially vitamin E and essential fatty acids. Sunflower oil has a light texture making it very comfortable on babies’ skin.
|Sodium Cocoa Butterate
||A cream coloured fatty butter extracted from Cocoa Beans. Sometimes called the “ultimate” moisturiser, it is used to ‘superfat’ our milk soaps. This means that as you wash, some oils are left behind which is why our milk soaps have got their legendary following.
||When making soap via “Cold Process” which is how we do it, natural glycerine is one of the bi-products. It is helpful to soften the skin.
|Fragrant Oil (Phthlate Free)
||We used to use various Essential Oils in our Milky Shampoo, Conditioner and Milk Wash. EO’s are great if we could talk to each customer and check for allergies. Due to the occasional reaction to EO’s, we removed them. We want to sooth people scalps and even a very small number of reactions to EO’s was distressing for us. But people still want their hair to smell nice. So we worked with another company to develop phthalate free fragrant oil (phthalates are the things in fragrances that a lot of people don’t like) and since then the response has been great.
