Our soaps are "true soaps" made from quality oils and butters with moisturizing properties. Per the FDA " there are very few true soaps on the market. Most body cleansers, both liquid and solid, are actually synthetic detergent products. Detergent cleansers are popular because they make suds easily in water and don't form gummy deposits. Some of these detergent products are actually marketed as "soap" but are not true soap". Our soaps are not detergent bars, and they will not strip your skin of their natural oils. Give our "true soap" a try and see if you feel the difference.
