The history of soap has come a long way, with bar soap being a timeless classic, while liquid soap emerged in the mid-nineteenth century with technological advancements. In this article, we'll explore the eco-friendly benefits of choosing bar soap over liquid soap and introduce SallyeAnder's exceptional range of natural and sustainable soap bars.
The Evolution of Soap:
Bar soap, a centuries-old creation, involves a straightforward process of saponifying fats like olive and vegetable oils with alkali (lye). In contrast, liquid soap and shower gels, products of modern technology and advanced chemistry in the 1800s, require more energy-intensive production and often use petroleum derivatives. The latter also necessitates the addition of various chemicals to cleanse, moisturize, and prevent skin irritation.
Lower Carbon Footprint:
A 2009 study in Switzerland revealed a compelling fact: liquid soap boasts a carbon footprint 25% larger than bar soap per wash. By opting for bar soap, you can positively impact the environment and reduce your ecological footprint. Additionally, choosing bar soap eliminates the need for excessive plastic packaging, which is common in liquid soap products.
