Organic Soap

At Coastal Classic Creations®, we hold fast to the ethics and traditions of the Handcrafters Soapmakers Guild, the only international, non-profit trade association promoting the benefits of handcrafted soaps. All of our soaps are hypo-allergenic, non-comedogenic, biodegradable, gluten free, soy free, non-GMO, and without any SLS. All of the food grade oils used in the soap originate from plants that are farmed by sustainable growers.
 

HEMP SEED OIL SOAP

This is an olive oil soap base which has hemp seed oil added to it. It has fine moisturizing properties (hemp seed oil) to make it a soap with good lather. It is a slightly olive green color and is unscented.

Ingredients: Sodium Olivate; Sodium Palmate; Sodium Cocoate; Sodium Safflowerate; Glycerine (Kosher, of vegetable origin); Cannabis sativa (Hemp) Seed Oil; Purified Water; Sorbitol; Sorbitan oleate

OATMEAL SOAP

Our oatmeal soap produces a very nice lather while being considered a mild soap for sensitive skin.

Ingredients: Sodium Cocoate; Sodium Palmate; Sodium Safflowerate; Glycerine (Kosher, of vegetable origin); Purified Water; Avena sativa (Oatmeal); Sorbitol; Sorbitan oleate; Titanium dioxide (trace)

GLYCERIN/VEGETABLE GLYCERIN (PALM DERIVED)

Vegetable glycerin is the by-product of another oil's production. Fats and oils of a raw ingredient (usually palm or coconut oils) are split into crude glycerol fats, under the combined reaction of water, temperature and pressure. The water absorbs glycerol from the fatty acid phase of the oil production. After this phase, the glycerol is isolated and further distilled to give a standard 99% glycerin product. Vegetable Glycerin is a clear, colorless, and odorless liquid, which has the consistency of thick syrup. It is used as an agent in cosmetics, toothpaste, shampoos, soaps, herbal remedies, pharmaceuticals, and other household items. It has emollient like properties which can soften and soothe the skin and it assists the outer epidermis in retaining moisture. Other uses include its solvency action in the extraction of botanical properties from plant material without the use of alcohol. This is especially helpful for those with alcohol sensitivities as most liquid herbal extracts contain alcohol. Vegetable glycerin extracts typically have a shelf life of 14-24 months whereas alcohol extracts can have an extended shelf life of 4-6 years. The glycerin in our soap is palm oil derived. It is not soy derived.

SAPONIFICATION

The term "saponification" is the name given to the chemical reaction that occurs when vegetable oil is mixed with an alkali solution. The term "saponification" means "soap making". The root word, "sapo", is Latin for soap. The products of the reaction are soap and glycerin. Water is also present; however, it does not enter into the chemical reaction. The water is only a vehicle for the alkali, which is otherwise a dry powder. The alkali used in modern soap is either potassium hydroxide, which is used to make soft soap or liquid soap because of its greater solubility, or sodium hydroxide, which is used to make bar soap. The common term for alkali is "lye". Though lye is necessary to make soap, there is no lye in the final product. It has reacted with the oils to form soap and glycerin. Mass-produced soap created in factories does have a small amount of excess alkali in it. Also, it has had all of its naturally-occurring glycerin removed so it can be sold as a separate commodity. An important difference between most commercial soap and our hand-crafted soap is that the glycerin is left in, thus allowing it to retain its natural moisturizing capabilities.

The oils used in our soap are carefully chosen for the character they impart to the final soap. Coconut oil creates a good amount of glycerin, makes a good lather, and is very stable. Olive oil and hemp seed oil have natural antioxidants, and the soap created makes a creamier lather. Our soap is pH-balanced for even the most sensitive skin.

Sodium cocoate is the sodium salt of fatty acids from coconut oil.

Sodium palmate is sodium salt of fatty acids derived from the oil palm, Elaeis guineensis.

Sodium olivate is a sodium salt of the fatty acids derived from Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil.

Sodium safflowerate is a sodium salt of the fatty acids derived from Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil.

Stability - Shelf Life should be approximately 36 months if stored away from light and heat (15C/59F - 25C/77F)
