How is it made?
Nice Touch soap is made in the tradition of fine soap-making, using the "cold process" method. It is not cooked, so its nutrients are retained. I don't claim to be a chemist, but it wasn't hard to figure out that there are cheap oils, detergents, waxes, and preservatives in those bars. (Take a look at the label on a bar of soap you have in your cabinet, Google those chemically-sounding ingredients, and see for yourself. Ew! You're putting that on your skin!)
I'm often asked, "Is this lye soap?" Actually, that's kind of like asking, "Is this H2O water?"
Stay with me here.
High school chemistry taught us that water, itself, is two parts hydrogen, and one part oxygen. Alone, they're quite different substances. (In fact, they use hydrogen to make bombs!) Together, however, they become our precious, fundamental life force.
Frankly, ALL soap is made with lye (Sodium Hydroxide) - even the most so-called "gentle" soaps, whether from your grocery store or fine cosmetics counter. If they try to tell you otherwise, turn around and walk away, because they don't know what they're talking about, or are not being honest.
Simply, during the "cold process," Sodium Hydroxide is combined with the exact amount of distilled water and base oils (fats) required to create soap. The thing is, once soap has "saponified," (which is just a fancy word for cured), the lye is neutralized, and no longer exists in its original state.
Think of it this way: Is a butterfly still a caterpillar?
Very often people ask me, "Why on earth do you make soap? You can buy it at the grocery store for almost nothing!" That's a good question - and there's a reason that . . . that . . . stuff is so cheap!
Years ago, after becoming curious about the ingredients the huge soap companies put in mass-manufactured soap, I became concerned. (After all, I've worked with more than my share of greedy corporate executives in my time, and I know how they cut costs.) And I was putting the stuff all over my skin! Consequently, I was compelled to do some research to find out what those chemicals really were. Quite frankly, I didn't like what I discovered.
I then wondered how soap was actually made, and whether I could do a better job, myself. Little did I know then how that seemingly simple question would impact my life! After many hours of researching, experimenting, and refining my skills, I developed a superior product by using quality ingredients -- ingredients that you can understand, and feel confident using on your skin.
The smooth, penetrating lather and skin-loving goat milk leaves your skin feeling soft, silky, and pampered. You'll notice that "tight skin syndrome" we've all experienced with commercial-grade soap will disappear. Because of the naturally-occurring glycerin that is found in our hand-made soap, my clients have marveled that after regular use, they no longer need to use lotions to moisturize their skin. Don't you and your family deserve that?
Milk has been valued throughout the ages as a skin softener, even for the most sensitive and tender skin. Goat milk is particularly rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals, and has a natural ability to moisturize, nourish, and retain its goodness on your skin. It is such a pure, natural, and wonderful beauty aid that doctors often prescribe goat milk soap for people who suffer from eczema.
So what does this mean to you? I think you'll discover Nice Touch Goat Milk soap to be the most soothing, luxurious and creamy soap you'll ever use!
