More Detailed Ingredient Information
Our Lavender Foaming Hand Soap Refill Tablets use Coconut and Sunflower Seed Oils as the base vegetable oils for the soap. This combination gives us a beautiful, full, rich lather that cleans without drying your skin.
Potassium Cocoate: This is the chemical name of saponified (that is, 'made into soap') coconut oil. It's the chemical that grabs onto both dirt and water to do the cleaning.
Potassium Sunflowerate: This is the chemical name of the saponified sunflower seed oil.
Glycerin: This substance is chemically a type of alcohol and is naturally created when the oil is converted into soap. Glycerin is known for skin-softening abilities and is an effective solvent, meaning it can dissolve substances such as stains and dirts.
Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil and Organic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil : There is always some coconut and sunflower seed oils left in the soap after conversion to sodium cocoate and sodium sunflowerate. This is because we use potassium hydroxide, or lye, in the conversion process. Leaving these excess oil in the soap not only ensures there is no remaining lye in the finished product, it also gives the soap some of its lather and moisturizing feel.
Water: Water is used in the soapmaking process as a substance that dissolves lye and then is a medium so the lye can reach all of the oil to react. After being useful in this process, the water is allowed to evaporate from the soap over a period of time, and the resulting dried tablet has very little water. There is only about 5% water remaining in the finished tablets, thus making them more shelf stable than a liquid soap that would require a preservative due to the high (about 60%) water.
