Twilight Organic manufactures high quality organic cold process soaps along with other natural skin care products. Cold process soap has many benefits for your skin including keeping the skin healthier naturally. These are handmade soaps without having the normal chemicals added like commercial soaps. The basic ingredients include sodium hydroxide (lye), distilled water, oils (fat), butter and essential oil or natural fragrances. These soaps are often more environmentally friendly and typically biodegradable. Heat is being generated during mixing of oils, distilled water with sodium hydroxide or lye known as the gel phase, which is a normal occurrence of soap-making procedures. No external heat is needed to neutralize the lye except while melting the butters to mix in lye. After the entire procedure the soap takes 24 hours to 48 hours to get unmold and get dry. Due to the lack of external heat, curing in the cold processed soap can take between 4 to 6 weeks to produce the final product. During this entire soap-making process, the product is worth the wait as all the essential oils in the soap maintain their therapeutic properties. This is one of the best methods to have and maintain the quality in a soap. Cold processing soaps is a oldest soap-making method that is still practiced till now.
Archaeological findings of ancient Babylon, dating back to as early as 2800 BC, confirm the use of the cold processed natural soap-making method. Although the recipe used today combines lye with oils or fats, but still it has continued to help our skins since ages.
WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO CHOOSE COLD PROCESS OVER COMMERCIAL SOAP
Our skin is semipermeable membrane that absorbs everything that comes in contact with even its water. Every day we use commercial soaps with so much chemicals in it. The reason handmade soaps are non-stripping and non-drying for your skin is they are made up of natural ingredients as mentioned above. Commercial soaps are manufactured with detergents, which potentially strip away the sebum (natural skin oil) from the surface of the skin. Sebum is naturally made by our body which helps to seal moisture and prevents skin from becoming overly dry. It also helps protecting our body from bacteria by fighting against infections. Unlike other chemical soaps types, cold process versions penetrate deep into the skin to help minimize dry itchy skin. Cold process soaps have natural ingredients and is ideal to preserve the benefits of plant-derived butters and oils. Our soaps are the result of a number of elements: a combination of natural ingredients, a traditional soap making method and the level of luxury that only handmade products carry.
INGREDIENTS THAT ARE REALLY FEED OUR SKIN
The main oils like coconut, palm (sustainable harvest palm oil), rice bran oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, sunflower oil, hemp seed oil, and castor oil are many of the natural oils that maybe used in making cold process soap. As the saponification process naturally produced glycerin moisturizes and maintains the skin elasticity. The lack of external heat does not break down or alter the active ingredients, allowing the skin to absorb the full range of benefits of all ingredients added to the soap. The oils and sodium hydroxide lye in the cold process soap allow each batch to be completely customized with the desired essential oils or fragrances to create a unique result every time. Switching to handmade soap not only makes your skin smells and feels great but also you will not come in contact with the harmful chemicals. Since the cold process soap making doesn’t involve external heat, it maintains the quality of the ingredients such as oil. Butter, fragrances, other natural ingredients. Fragrances such as natural essential oils stay intact and bring together a stronger but soft feel while using the soap. Natural soaps made through cold process techniques can create rich and thick lather due to use of lots of oil and butter in it.
