My packet of soaps arrived today. Thank you SO much for the gift of the ginger and lemongrass soap. I am really looking forward to trying it! It's the little gestures like this that keep me coming back to Pure Nuff Stuff, plus of course some of my favourite UK products ever! Thanks again. Hope you have a good weekend :) Ps my kids think the soap smells like 'a pirate'. I told them it's made in a shop in a pirate town ;)
In soapmaking, sodium hydroxide is added to heated oils to create a chemical reaction that turns the oil into soap, together the two things become a third and different thing effectively. During the 8-10 week curing time, the water used to dilute the sodium hyroxide evaporates out, taking with it any last traces of sodium hydroxide and the finished bar is left caustic free and perfectly safe to use, even on sensitive skins.
