    HONEY INTIMATE HYGIENE GEL

    “Vaginal flora is called the set of bacteria that live naturally in the female intimate area. The presence of these (mostly Lactobacillus bacteria) has a protective function, as they produce lactic acid and other substances, which maintain acidic vaginal pH by inhibiting the proliferation of pathogenic microorganisms.” “Each woman is home to several types of lactobacillus, which evolve throughout her cycle and life based on hormonal variations, environment, intimate hygiene, sex life, etc. In the menopause period, the pH is naturally 7 while in a normal state the pH of the vagina varies between 4 and 5”.

    COLD PROCESS SOAP WITH orange zest powder.

    Let’s make another cold process soap because, as you know, cold process soaps over greased are optimal for the hygiene of our skin. Contrary to what is often thought, caustic soda disappears completely from the final composition leaving us all the properties that vegetable oils and natural glycerin bring to the skin. Many people believe that glycerin soaps are better and softer, but while this may seem like this in principle, glycerin soaps do not have the moisturizing capacity of good cold process soaps. Cold processed soaps contain quality butters and vegetable oils that, when broken down and converted into soap, provide glycerin to the final composition in an entirely…

    LIQUID SOAP without micro plastics

    Plastic is a huge environmental problem because, firstly, it is produced mainly from the increasingly scarce raw material of crude oil and; second, it is not biodegradable. Plastic waste of all kinds, including micro-plastics, reaches the environment and the oceans in quantities that can hardly be estimated and enters the food chain. Small marine organisms such as worms, mussels, small fish, mistake them for food. And this is the reason why they are also present in our blood. And it is that, until now, wastewater treatment plants have not been able to completely filter the particles, sometimes microscopic, from wastewater. In this way, the microplastics in our household hygiene products…

It is a soap for both facial and body use, just like the soap we made in a previous post for normal and dry skin, and in which we also included a video of the procedure. With this formulation it is possible…

    HOW TO MAKE A NATURAL BODY SOAP with the cold process method

    We are going to prepare a recipe for a particularly mild and emollient soda soap so that we can use without reservation as a body and facial hygiene soap. For this reason, this soap is formulated with an overgreased formulation (10%) and made with vegetable butters and clays. The concept of over-greasing and why it is important: overgreasing means that we add less amount of soda to the same kilo of oil, so that part of the oil is not saponified. With this we manage, on the one hand, to guarantee that there is no excess of soda in the soap and, on the other, a greater softness and emolliency…
