Frequently Asked Questions
We’re Here to Help You Soap Up!
What makes your soap so special?
Our soap is made using cold process or hot process techniques. Most store bought soaps are actually classified as synthetic detergents. Soap is much better for you and your skin. Having had skin issues (psoriasis) for years, I just thought I had really bad skin. After trying cold process soap, my psoriasis almost went completely away, without me changing anything else.
How Can I Invest in Your Startup?
What? You want to help us? That's awesome! You can buy soap from us, and buy soap for your family and friends. Everyone we've given bars to as gifts has loved them! Thank you for supporting us here at Wardle Wash Soap!
Can I special order soap?
Maybe! :-) Please email us and ask. While many of our bars look gorgeous, our primary goal is to make good useable soap that we want to use! Within reason we can do requests, like colorants, or specific ingredients. It takes time to make soap, so plan ahead if it's for a special occasion. Cold Process soap needs 4-6 weeks of curing time to make sure all the lye has gone through saponification and that the bar is nice and hard. Otherwise, your beautiful but soft bar melts away in the water.
How is Cold/Hot Process Soap Made?
Fat + Lye = Soap + Glycerin. Now that we got that out of the way, let me explain more. Fats, like vegetable oils, butters, and animal fats repel water. Lye is a caustic base. You don't want to touch lye! But, when lye is mixed with water, and then fats, the lye and fats got through a process called saponification. A chemical process that forever changes them into soap and glycerin. All real soap is made this way. If someone gives you "soap" that wasn't made with lye, you actually have a detergent.
