What's In Our Soap?
Contrary to what many people believe, there is no lye in soap; but there must be lye in the initial process of making soap. Lye is used to facilitate a reaction within soapcrafter's oils called saponification. It is that process which causes soap to be created. By the time the soap is cured and packaged, there is no trace of the lye in the beautiful bar you bring home.
The soapbase from Northern Scentsations is a vegetable glycerin soap. That means, there are no animal products used during the soapmaking process. Believe it or not, there are animal products (fats and waste fats) in many of your soaps...and the manufacturers aren't required to tell you! Rest assured, there is no tallow or tallowate in our soaps.
So what is in Northern Scentsations' soaps, anyway?
It's simple! We use lye, distilled water, a variety of natural, vegetable oils (like coconut, palm and castor oils), sugar, color and fragrance. That's all...no hidden materials or ingredients you can't even pronounce.
