Where to Buy Handmade Soap in Singapore
Most people have never used handmade soap before. In fact, most people have never used soap before. Huh…what you talking?
Well, simply take a look at the commercial soap that you have in your bathroom or storeroom or any of the “soap” products sold in stores, it’s likely you won’t find the term “soap” on the package.
Commercial soap sold in stores is often made with chemical detergents e.g. sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) and sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), hardeners and synthetic lathering agents. Some of these ingredients can be drying or irritating on the skin.
On the other hand, handmade soap created with oils, liquid and lye does not contain these harsh ingredients and do not qualifies as ‘soap.’
Handmade soap also contains glycerin. Glycerin is a humectant that attracts moisture from the air to the skin. It’s produced naturally during the soapmaking process. It’s one of the things that make handmade soap so amazing!
Some commercial soaps remove the glycerin from the bars and sell it to make lotions and creams. Without glycerin, commercially prepared soap isn’t nearly as skin loving, and can leave the skin feeling dry.

What is a Handmade Soap Bar
Handmade soap are made by a process call saponification by combining skin loving botanical oils e.g. coconut oil olive oil, sweet almond oil and lye. Once the lye and oils emulsify and combine, the saponification process begins. This process turns the lye and oil into soap.
In the final bar, no lye actually comes into contact with your skin because there is no lye in the bar – it’s now soap!
The unique thing about a handmade soap is that it can be customized to your preference with colors, fragrance, the type of skin-loving oils and butters used.

Real handmade soap contains raw botanical ingredients that includes oil, butter, liquid and lye. Most mass-produced “soap” bars that you buy from the drug store or supermarket contain ingredients not recognized as real soap by the FDA. And this is with good reason!
These ingredients are usually harsh detergents and hardening agents. You will see that their packaging omits the word soap, instead, calling them moisturizing bars or cleansing bars. This is one of the major reason why handmade is the best.
