Why Whole Soap may you ask?
Regular large soap’s brands use the low-cost fats (sometimes even animal fat) and oils (most of the time palm oil which is cheap and not particularly eco-friendly. Indeed we all heard about deforestation and un- ethical production and harvesting).
But over everything, what is probably never unveiled is the fact that these brands extract and remove the botanical nourishing glycerine which is naturally produced during the reaction between oil and an alkali (potassium or sodium) to realize the soap (this chemical reaction is named saponification.
Basically, isn’t it like selling you a fruit after removing all the vitamins out of it?
What Glycerin does to your skin?
Natural botanical Glycerin is soothing the skin while leaving a protective layer on the derma. This is particularly interesting to benefit from this glycerine since soap, by definition: cleans and get rid of some oil (natural sebum /skin protection), thanks to the properties of a natural soap, we can also capture and flush all the germs and bacteria, leaving the skin purified and cleansed, than comes the glycerine, which will replace the natural skin protection, letting enough time for your skin to regenerate its own protection.
Basically, the Spoiled Bee formulation (is certified with the highest standards), and by choice, we decided to leave the soap as its whole, with all its ingredients and benefits. Just like whole food. You want the real stuff, not the un ethical, not clean, packed with synthetic fragrances and with petrochemicals kind of soap.
