Q: What is handmade soap?

A: SIDDHAM's handmade soap is a skin care product that restores the skin's self-healing power. They are all made by hand using the [cold method]. The whole process temperature is below 40°C to avoid high temperature damage and grease deterioration. Place the soap in a ventilated place with constant temperature and humidity for 45-60 days. After saponification, the glycerin can be completely retained and the soap can be mildly moisturized. This method is more time-consuming and laborious, and the risk of failure is higher, but it can retain more nutrients in natural oils, such as glycerin, and help moisturize and soften the skin after washing.

Q: Why not use shower gel?

A: Most shower creams on the market today contain chemically synthesized surfactants and non-ionic active agents that make foam soft. Thickeners, pearlescent agents, moisturizers, foaming agents, artificial flavors, artificial colors, etc. are also added. More than 10 kinds of chemical synthetic additives such as bactericides and preservatives.

The problem is that the structure of these chemically synthesized additives does not exist in the natural world, so microorganisms are difficult to decompose, thereby forming pollution and their irritation will destroy the original protective function of our sebum membranes, causing chemical substances to invade the body. In the long term, in addition to causing skin sensitivity, the deposits are difficult to metabolize in the body, and it may also cause skin or liver and kidney disease.

SIDDHAM's handmade soap uses natural essential oils, high-quality vegetable oils and natural mineral powders that are beneficial to the skin. Of course, it does not add surfactants, foaming agents, preservatives, tear-free agents and other chemicals. Simple source, effective cleaning, mild and no burden, also biodegradable, friendly environment

Q: What is the difference between pure natural handmade soap and general commercial soap or essential oil soap?

A: Generally, commercially available chemical soaps, in order to meet the standards of low cost, easy mass production and rapid production, are mostly industrial raw materials or petrochemical-related derivatives, such as SLS surfactants, preservatives, antibacterial agents, foaming agents, flavors, etc. Mainly synthetic materials. These petrochemical surfactants are not only easy to cause excessive cleansing, and cause the skin's sebum film to lose its original protective function. Long-term exposure to some chemical substances is also one of the main reasons for modern skin problems. In addition, due to the characteristics of being difficult to decompose, these chemical substances are more likely to disturb the ecology and pollute the environment after being discharged. SIDDHAM handmade soap is a fatty acid salt (such as fatty acid sodium, fatty acid potassium) generated by the action of natural oils and alkalis. It is gentle and easy to rinse without worrying about chemical residues. Moreover, the fatty acid salt of handmade soap can also be decomposed by bacteria within 24 hours, returning to nature and a friendly environment. In addition, the handmade soap made from natural oils is rich in glycerin and original essence, which helps the skin to be moisturized and moisturized. This is also an advantage that general commercial chemical soaps do not have.

Q: What are the advantages of handmade soap?

A: Compared with general soaps on the market, the skin feels dry or itchy after washing with general soaps. This is because most soaps contain chemical ingredients, which may causeskin allergies, abnormal liver metabolism, etc.
SIDDHAM's handmade soap is rich in natural glycerin, which can moisturize and moisturize the skin while cleaning, so it is clean and not sticky after washing, and it will not make the skin tight and dry and feel uncomfortable. So after use, they are often pleasantly surprised by the smooth touch of the skin after washing. Long-term use can restore the skin to its original healthy state and present the best skin quality with oil and water balance. And there is no burden on the body, so that babies and users with sensitive skin can use it with peace of mind.

Q: Is the scent of handmade soap with added essence or natural original flavor?

A: The fragrance of SIDDHAM's handmade soap comes from the natural ingredients in the formula.

There are three sources: plant extracts, the scent of the oil itself, natural essential oils, combined with aromatherapy effects in the elegant fragrance. However, the essential oil added in all handmade soaps is about 2-3%. We have also developed "non-scented handmade soaps" without added essential oils or handmade soaps with essential oils that can only be used by pregnant women and small babies. On the other hand, commercially available soaps and a few handmade soaps use artificial flavors, which have the advantage of a strong and long-lasting fragrance, but they increase the burden on the skin.

Q: Is the color of handmade soap pigments or chemical additives?

A: Generally, SIDDHAM's handmade soap will use natural materials such as plant powder or mineral mud powder to increase the color. The natural color is also comfortable to look at. Otherwise, natural pigments such as oils or fresh flowers and herbs will gradually fade over time, and if the soap you buy keeps bright and does not fade, it means it is possible I bought a soap with coloring added.

Q: Will sodium hydroxide make handmade soap harm the skin?

A: In addition to extracting a large amount of salt from seawater, it can produce soda ash (sodium carbonate) and caustic soda (sodium hydroxide).

Sodium hydroxide is alkaline and will damage the skin if it touches directly, especially in the process of storing and making handmade soap. However, in the production process, after sodium hydroxide is saponified with oil and water, it is no longer sodium hydroxide, but soap and glycerin. Therefore, in order to completely saponify the sodium hydroxide, the handmade soap must be left for 6-8 weeks to wait for the complete saponification. This is what everyone often hears of [drying soap].

Q: Can natural handmade soap really treat skin diseases?

A: Natural handmade soap is not a medicine, but it can relieve the discomfort caused by allergic skin.

Whether it's babies to adults, especially sensitive skin or people with skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis, sweat rash, eczema, seasonal dry itching, etc., using natural handmade soap is really helpful. In fact, these allergic skins cannot be cured because of long-term exposure to chemical lotions, but they are used to thinking that their skin is too sensitive. Many people know that handmade soap can improve allergic skin. In fact, the reason is very simple. Long-term use of natural handmade soap will give the skin a chance to breathe. The long-term clogged pores will start to breathe, and the skin will naturally adjust to a healthy state. Let the skin have self-healing power.

Q: Can natural handmade soap only be used to wash the body?

A: Natural handmade soap is moisturizing and has no burden on the skin. It is suitable for whole body use, including face and scalp hair. Good-quality natural handmade soap has reached the level of facial soap, so the skin can be cleansed all over the body. Simply put, every inch of our skin is afraid of chemical residue damage, so we need natural ingredients and glycerin to moisturize the skin.

Q: Can handmade soap be used to wash my face directly? Is the pH neutral?

A: Of course you can wash your face, as long as you choose the right formula, it can be applied to the whole body

The handmade soap that truly uses natural ingredients is weakly alkaline (PH value is about 8-9), so it can produce a cleansing and sterilizing effect, and the skin can return to the original weak acidity in a very short time after washing. It is a normal function. However, in the case of no tear-free agent, avoid soapy water seeping into the eyes when washing your face, so as not to cause some irritation and discomfort.

Q: After washing the hair with natural handmade soap, it is very clean, but the hair is easy to tangle?

A: After washing the hair with natural handmade soap, the scalp feels breathing

You may feel that when you wash your hair with natural handmade soap, you will feel dry when flushing. That's because natural handmade soap can naturally and thoroughly clean the scalp dirt. After washing and drying your hair, you will find that your hair is naturally fluffy and your scalp is extremely comfortable. . Due to the thorough degreasing properties of natural handmade soap, we recommend that you wash it twice. For long-haired people, it is recommended to add half a lemon to the water after flushing, gently rubbing between the hair, and then flushing with water.

Reduce the use of hair care products on the ends of the hair to avoid tangles. After a period of use, it is recommended that you do not need to use hair care or conditioning. Get rid of the habit of washing chemical shampoos, let your scalp pores breathe and reduce hair loss, and gradually restore the original elasticity of the hair and keep the scalp healthy.

Q: How to distinguish between soap-based handmade soap and cold-made handmade soap?

A: Actually, it can be easily judged from the appearance

Generally, the oils used in soap bases are mainly coconut oil and palm oil, and some use cheap oils such as mineral oil. From the technological point of view, the soap base is made by heat, and high temperature will destroy the nutrient content of the oil; in terms of glycerin content, the soap base Many will extract the glycerin and sell it separately to create greater profits. Soap-based soap has a very strong cleansing power, which is very harmful to skin that is generally not very oily. In addition, the production process of the soap base often requires the addition of alcohol or sugar to make the soap base transparent, or other chemicals to make it milky white. Alcohol will cause excessive cleansing and tightness on the skin, and irritation to the skin. It is also well known.

However, some [soap-based] soaps are sold in the market at high unit prices under the name [handmade soap] or [essential oil handmade soap], causing consumer confusion.

To determine whether it is soap-based handmade soap, one is to look at the appearance. If the texture of the soap looks very delicate and the color is very bright, the possibility of soap-based soap is very high. If it’s a transparent soap, it’s basically a soap-based soap.

Second, the most convincing way to distinguish is to get it in your hand, cut it into a small piece, and heat it. Soap-based soap will melt into a very thin liquid when heated, and it will solidify and form again soon after cooling, with a fine texture. Cold soap will become soft after heating, but it will never melt like water. Even after cooling, it will be crooked.

If the overall color of the soap is uneven (for example, the color in the middle is dark, the surroundings are light), a little uneven, or there are small bubbles, the possibility of cold soap is very high.

In general cold soap ingredients, the main ingredients are some fats. In addition to coconut oil and palm oil, there will be others, especially olive oil, hazelnut oil, sweet almond oil, essential oil, vegetable powder, etc.

Q: How long is the shelf life of handmade soap?

A: Commercially available handmade soaps are often labeled as three years (in fact, longer).

But SIDDHAM's handmade soap should be used up as soon as possible while it is fresh. Generally speaking, it can be stored for about half a year to a year under the correct storage condition, but there are individual differences due to the composition. If it needs to be stored, please put it in a cool and dry place.

Q: What should I do if it breaks? How long can handmade soap last? How do you know that the handmade soap is broken?

A: Handmade soap is limited to different lengths depending on the ratio of fats and oils, as short as several months, and as long as several years. As long as you use the correct method to store it, most handmade soaps can be stored for one year!

After using the handmade soap, it is recommended to put it in a cool and dry place, or on a soap holder or soap box. If you plan to not use it for a period of time, you can choose to temporarily put it in the refrigerator.

If the handmade soap has yellow oil spots and a smell of oil, it means that the handmade soap is beginning to rancid.

Because handmade soap does not contain preservatives, rancidity can be said to be the fate of handmade soap, especially hot and humid weather (the rainy season in Taiwan or Malaysia), which increases the difficulty of preservation. If there are only some small oil spots, it is recommended to dig out the oil spots first, and then use them as soon as possible. Or it can be used to wash dishes or clothes.

Q: Why does the natural handmade soap foam sting when sprayed on the eyes?

A: Please try to avoid direct contact between eyes and natural soap foam

Natural handmade soap uses weak alkaline and natural glycerin to cleanse the skin. It is normal that the soap foam will cause a slight tingling sensation if it accidentally flows into the eyes, and it is harmless to the human body. Generally, cleaning products containing chemically synthesized ingredients are manufactured with various chemical substances added in accordance with the needs of consumers. For example: moisturizers, foam stabilizers, foaming agents with non-tear-free formulations. Although these products will not cause eye irritation for the time being, they actually use chemicals to harm the skin. Therefore, when the foam accidentally enters the eyes, although you may feel a little irritation, please rest assured that the eyeball mucosa has the function of secreting tears to protect itself against foreign bodies and irritation, and tears can quickly wash away the foam and relieve the irritation. At this time, rinse and dilute with a lot of water, and return to normal after the tingling sensation disappears. We will still advise you to avoid direct contact between your eyes and foam when washing your face to avoid temporary discomfort.
