Great soap! It cleanses my face better than any soap I've ever bought from the store. Since washing with this, and moisturizing with the tallow and emu balm, my dry, acne prone skin has become so smooth and clear. Thank you!
Charcoal & Green Clay Tallow Soap (~ 5 oz)Add to Wishlist
Charcoal & Green Clay Tallow Soap is the perfect bar for deep cleansing. Anyone suffering from acne, oily skin, clogged or enlarged pores, or who prefer a soap that leaves their skin more on the "squeaky clean" feeling side will love it! As with all of our soaps, we make it unscented, pure and basic.
Our soap bars last up to 60 days for one person as long as only hands are used to lather and it is kept on a soap saver.
Saponified grassfed tallow, organic virgin olive oil, organic virgin castor oil, activated charcoal, and French green clay.
About Soap Making
Curious about the chemistry behind soap making? "Saponification" refers to the chemical reaction between fat and lye that results in the formation of glycerin and soap. Saponification occurs when, first, three molecules of sodium hydroxide (NaOH) are dissolved in water (H2O) and are split apart, which results in three sodium ions (Na) and three hydroxyl groups (OH). Second, a triglyceride (fat) molecule (C3H5(COOR)3) is split apart through hydrolysis, which results in a free glycerol (C3H5) and three fatty acid tails (COOR). Third, the hydroxyl groups all bond to the free glycerol to form a molecule of glycerin. Fourth, the three fatty acids each bond with one of the three sodium ions to form three molecules of soap (3NaCOOR). When the ingredients have completed the saponification process, one molecule of glycerin will be present for each three molecules of soap; no molecules of lye (sodium hydroxide) remain in the soap—they have all been split apart and used to form the soap molecules and glycerin.
I love being outside and I use oils for big sprays that are hard to remove with soap. This soap removes the excess oils but doesn’t strip my skin and dry it out! I love following it up with the mocha latte tallow body butter! My husband loves it as well! Great product!!
I’ve been buying the un-scented soap for awhile now, but now this one will be a regular buy as well. Since I like both soaps I guess I will just do a rotation with them.
Leaves my face feeling clean and refreshed everytime!
