Our 100% coconut oil soap bars bind coconut moisturising benefits to nourish the skin while gently and effectively cleansing.
These slightly scented soap bars create a lovely soft lather that leaves the skin incredibly silky and moisturised. It is handcrafted in small batches with an exclusive formulation based on coconut oil's unique properties, creating a smooth and abundant lather. In fact, to make 100% coconut oil soap more hydrating, we reduce the amount of sodium hydroxide in the recipe by 25%. This ensures that the soap is still hard and fluffy but not drying to the skin. Thanks to their smooth lather, these bars can also be used as shaving soap.
Coconut oil is not really drying, it's just super cleansing. It cleans your skin so well that it strips the oils off your skin, making it feel dry. Coconut oil itself is good for your skin. Having 25% extra oil in the soap mitigates the drying effect, resulting in a really mild bar, gentle and safe even for the most delicate skin.
All our soaps are made using the cold process method, helping to preserve the beautiful properties of our ingredients.
All the colours used in our soaps are made from roots, clays and botanicals. We don't use synthetic dyes, pigments, micas or oxides. Natural soap colourants can be infused into the oil or water we use to make our soaps, added directly to the soap before setting or used in the lye solution. To naturally scent our handmade soaps, we use only pure essential oils.
Please note that slight variations in shape, scent, colour, and weight may occur because this product is handmade.
Make your soaps last longer by keeping them dry between uses. Please use a soap dish that drains and keeps it away from direct streams of water.
Handmade by THE GREEN BOUTIQUE, BN18 0LE Arundel, UK.
HOW TO USE
Apply the soap to wet hands, rub together to create a lather, wash, and rinse off. In case of contact with eyes, rinse with clean water immediately. If irritation occurs, stop use. Keep out of reach of children.
WHAT DOES "COLD-PROCESSED SOAP" MEAN?
This soap results from a chemical reaction called saponification that occurs between lye and a fat or oil (such as Olive Oil or Coconut Oil). Cold-processed soap, in particular, allows the lye to be neutralised without any outside sources of heat, called "curing".
Cold-processed soap is made by mixing sodium hydroxide (lye) with water, blending it with fatty oils, and adding essential oils or fragrances. They are then poured into moulds and take 24 hours to become soap (saponify).

The glycerol backbone is central to all triglycerides, and its molecular formula is C3H8O3.
Sodium citrate is the sodium salt of citric acid with the molecular formula Na3C6H5O7
Sodium lactate is the sodium salt of lactic acid with the molecular formula: C3H5NaO3.
