When Soap Goes Soft - Super Soft


Above: a mix of mild surfactants and organic hydrosols. I've been using this particular formula for what feels like forever, and my skin hasn't 'grown tired of it' yet.

It's even received a few different names along the way- depending on how it is used.


Is it Runny, Honey?

I won't lie. Viscosity is a challenge when working with plant-based ingredients and super-mild surfactants. I've come to believe the thick-flowing product you see in commercially manufactured shower-and-bath products is pretty much unattainable without 'cheating' (read: going a harsher and petrochemical route). I could be wrong, but my experience tells me otherwise.

The fact that this is super mild, plant-based, 100% unscented (yet still has a light and lovely scent due to the hydrosols), and still gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin kind of makes it ok that it's not quite as 'slow-flowing' as all those brand name products out there.

It's also versatile enough to be used straight up (as you see here), or diluted and packaged in a foam bottle for the softest of soapy experiences.

It is both shampoo and body wash and even gentle enough for babies, why I have named it Gently Does it Hair and Body Foam Wash.

Ja her er vi vist i den modsatte ende af skalaen i forhold til den kradse indholdsliste, jeg vist dig på Facebook. Jeg synes, at de runde beholdere er rigtig fine.
