During the mixture take place a chemical reaction which is called saponification. As a result of this process comes soap in combination of glycerine out.

Why El Greco handmade natural soap with donkey milk?

Why El Greco handmade natural soap with donkey milk?A good handmade natural soap with donkey milk balances bar hardness (durability), lather quality (both fluffiness and stability), and moisturizing ability.
These different properties come from the different fatty acids that make up molecules of the natural vegetable oils such as olive oil, palm oil, castor oil and coconut oil we use as the base of our handmade natural soap with donkey milk.

Good quality handcrafted natural soap- the true soap – is created by mixing together oils such as olive oil, palm oil, coconut oil and castor oil, or fats and lye. During the mixture a reaction takes place and is called saponification process. The result of this reaction – process is a combination of soap and glycerin.
Using olive oil for example will leave elements of olives, using coconut oil will leave elements of coconut, using castor oil will leave elements of castor and so on. Other natural ingredients can of course be added, like donkey milk, for skin nourishment or oatmeal or coffee grounds for exfoliant properties. Nothing should be removed and there is no need to add synthetic chemicals. Good quality handcrafted natural soap is the true soap and it is just fine as it is.
