Making soap at home has been popular hobby and or business for many years. In the last few years with the economy being in the shape that it is. It is less expensive option. There are also many reasons that have nothing to do with economics. Many people have sensitive skin that is aggravated by the harsh chemicals in ordinary commercial soap. One such chemical is sodium silicate which can cause burns and eye irritation, and possibly toxic when ingested. There are more chemicals such as

1) Sodium Lauyl Sulfate or SLS for short. Cant be digested and will negatively affect the liver.

2) Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES)

Both of these ingredients are related to sulfuric acid and are used to make many soaps, detergents, shampoos and even tooth pastes it is used to make soaps foam up. Although SLES is somewhat less irritating than Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, it cannot be digested by the body and liver can affect the liver and its functions. That’s why making soap at home is more desirable than ever. You control what touches your skin.

It must be stated that ingredients in soap or any other product list is generally listed in the order of greatest quantity to the least common ingredients. Ivory soap has about the best ingredients for commercial soap but still is only about 56% pure. that’s pretty good for one of the BIG guys. The only way to get 100% pure soap is to make it yourself or to by natural soap. The only harmful ingredient in the grand scheme of Ivory soap is sodi among the ivory soap ingredients list is sodium silicate which can cause burns and eye irritation, and possibly toxic when ingested. However, the amount used in ivory soap ingredients is in minute amount to be a cause for concern. There’s just one ingredient missing in my opinion which is glycerin. This ingredient is all natural and is a ingredient that has natural moisturizing characteristics.

The only thing left to do is to give it your signature. you can add your favorite fragrance and color to match any room in the house. With a few touches you can be on your way making gift baskets or selling then online. People are going back to all natural soap. They might as well buy it from you.
