－Cold Process Soap－
The hand-made soaps in Taiwan are actually "cold process soaps" (CP soaps)
Production process: Low temperature controlled at 40°C to 50°C so the natural nutrients of the vegetable oils would not be damaged by the high temperature. The by product of glycerin is a result of non-deliberate separation of saponification reaction, which enhances the moisturizing effects of the soap.
Olive oil, rose geranium essential oil, water, and alkali
Pure olive oil handmade soap is a single oil soap, with its base oil being 100% olive oil.
As early as 1688, in order to perfect the quality of the soaps made in the Marseille region, French King Louis XIV laid down the rules to regulate the manufacturing formula that all Marseille soaps should only be made using locally produced pure olive oil with no animal fat as additives. The weight of the olive oil used should be 72% of the weight of all materials. Once completed, each soap was affixed with the 72% stamp to proof its authenticity that it was from the Marseille region. The advantage of this moisturizing soap was its nourishing benefits. The drawback was that the soap was more tender and easier to melt, with its oil cleansing power less than desired.
Because of the lack of olives some years later, the formula for using 100% olive oil was changed to 72% instead, with the remaining 28% of the oil coming from coconut oil and palm oil. With this change, not only the situation of lack of olive oil was partly relieved, but the new formula was proved to be well accepted by people. The soap had become harder with increased lathering capacity and improved oil cleansing power.
Today the centuries-old tradition and inherited history of the Marseille soaps is continued as they can be seen everywhere in the department stores all over Taiwan.
Pursuing the standards that King Louis XIV had laid down several hundred years ago for the pure olive oil handmade soap, we have used new flavors of the rose geranium essential oil to add zest to the BodyRose handmade soap and made the originally “unscented” soap more attractive with scents coming from the natural fragrance essence oils.
Facial wash→Wet your face and rub the soap with your hands to create a lather, apply the lather to face and gently massage, and then rinse off.
