Wild Suds’ soaps are handmade in small batches and carefully formulated to benefit your skin. We do not use artificial colours and fragrances in our soaps instead we use botanicals and other carefully selected ingredients.
Where History, Chemistry and Art Converge
The history of soap dates back hundreds of years. Originally it was made using lye from wood fire ash and fats. In fact the methods used for soap making have not changed much since then. Only now instead of using lye from ash we use purified lye (sodium or potassium hydroxide) to make our soaps.
The chemical changes that take place when fats and oils react with lye is called saponification. The conditioning substance Glycerine and Soap are produced in the reaction.
The art of creating a great soap formula is to combine ingredients to produce the perfect cleansing, conditioning lather. The oils that form the soap together with the botanicals and other ingredients make a big difference to the soap’s character. Each ingredient and their properties are discussed on our ingredient profile pages.
